Consider the homosexuals who may be reading this. The WHOLE thread is referencing them.

Please understand that I'm not having a go at you. I think you are a charming person in your own right and the only person on here I've taken the time to reply to. I just find this whole thread obscene and an insult to wonderful human beings who just happen to love the same sex.



No. There is absolutely nothing supporting the notion that one's sexuality can be changed through any modern means. The only reason the idea exists is because religious extremists and people who are scared of "different" exist.

Perhaps some time far into the future we could change how peoples' brains work. But I'm betting we'll have flying cars before that happens.

You mean flying pigs. And why would you want to change how some ones brain works anyway? A homosexuals brain is just as normal as a heterosexuals brain. The only difference between a homosexual and a heterosexual is that a homosexual wouldn't start a thread asking if heterosexuality can be cured, and they have just as much right to.



There is no cure lol, but I would "fix" it if it meant I turned into a boy and still made love to girls :)

Don't you think that what should be cured isn't the actual sexual orientation but the negative perception people have of homosexuality?

Imagine a vaccine that would make all those unhappy homosexuals accept who they are instead of changing who they are.

That's the best option if you really want to be proactive.

Why not cure both? This inly furthur increases the freedom people have.

Why would you have to cure homosexuality if every homosexual is fine with being homosexual?

If that were the case, then I'd probably be looking for a cure to cure heterosexuals who want to be homosexual.

Some people are in love but unhappy with it (might it the other don't love them back or the love isn't accepted in society). Do want to find a cure for unwanted love?

I'm using extremes for a reason, obviously homosexuality is not as extreme as Schizophrenia, or Depression (I've worked at a Mental Health Agency - CAMH, unless you have a direct family member with this condition, I'se probably had a lot more experience with people like this then you), however that's not to say it isn't negatively affecting. Most homosexuals go through a state of depression upon first discovery, and many who wish to become heterosexual, or those who are from a religious family, often go through prolongued periods of depression. The depression isn't biological in origin, but it's still there in many cases.

Maybe I should have related homosexuals more to people with Anxiety Disorders, but the purpose of comparing it to extreme, but similar examples is to emphasis the condition. Why cure one thing, but not the other, just because it's significantly less harmful?


What about people with Red Hair? That's genetic, you only get red hair if your parents or an ancestor has red hair. It's not a mutation like Albinoism. Nothing wrong with being albino, but I'm sure some people, who want to go onto the beach, wish their was a cure. Homosexuals are no different

My aunt had Schizophrenia, so I am very aware of the effects of the condition. I also have a non-agoraphobic panic disorder. I also know somebody claiming to work at a mental health agency would likely know there's no 't' in Alzheimer's -_-

These represent societal issues, and these issues stem from societies homophobia (hence the 'we can fix gays' argument), not from the state of being gay itself. To put it in layman's terms, bigotry is why anxiety stems from homosexuality.

Perhaps you should open a biology textbook, you'll probably find a great chapter on how mutations are passed down genetically. (although, guessing from your arguments a textbook from where you grew up would likely not contain such a section)

The place I worked at was CAMH, there are no Alzheimer's patients there. It's the Center for Mental Addiction and Mental Health. Why would people suffering from memory loss be there? I know you want to insult me, but I have a lot of first hand experience with Schizophrenics, so don't even try there.

Homophobia: An extreme and irrational aversion to homosexuality and homosexual people.

Believing that homosexuality is cause through some sort of biological process is not a homophobic belief. I'm fine with people being gay, I just think there is a reason as to why they are gay. The question is, is that reason natural? Whatever it is, is it wrong to want a remedy for the condition so that homosexuals who want to become heterosexuals, can?

Maybe you're being so protective of gay rights, that you're ignoring the fraction of gay people, who don't want to be gay. Maybe you're a Heterophobe.

As for how it can be passed down, maybe you should look into something called epi-marks . There are way to be gay, but at the same time have no gay gene, and have a non inheritable trait. However these traits are uncommon (and well isn't homosexuality?)
