Sure, just smoke the whole pack.

Seriously, what is this troll topic doing on a video game website? I guess it generates clicks & ad revenue.

I see nothing wrong with this thread. We have different forum sections for a reason.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Homosexuality could be cured, I think. If it's something in your genes, we can change that. (Based off of recent research.) If it's your choice, we can change that. If it's something that's been put onto you, we can change that.

Does that mean I want to change it? No. I think it's perfectly fine.

This basically sums up the thread. ./

Damn, you're good at making short to the point, and well written responces.


Except I differ from you on wanting to change it.

Didn't know you were gay. It changes everything.



It's an orientation - just like left handedness. You can't 'cure' an orientation cause it is not a disease or disorder.

You can stop someone from having sex, but they are still a homosexual.

Some Religions have weird obsessions about people - they used to beat left handed people so they would use the right hand, or keep women from voting and working. Currently some are attacking homosexual people and their families. I think it's mostly people struggling to accept their own orientation.

They only person that really cares about someone else orientation, is the person that wants to sleep with them. Or the person that wants to keep them from sleeping with someone else. It says more about you. When people aren't hurting others, let people live their lives.

PS I have personally known people that have going to 'cure homosexual therapy' and it really messes people up. It is wrong, immoral and really sad.



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

bananaking21 and i are totally normal and happy together.

Happy =/= Normal. How do you know you're normal Biologically?

Not to be offensive, but everyone is abnormal in some way. Some people have irrectile disfunction, some people have obsessive compulsive disorder, some people will grow up and develop altzimers. Are any of these people normal? Only socially, as these are accepted conditions which don't make you any less of a person. Biologically all 3 of these people have something wrong with ither their geneitcs, or an imbalance of chemicals, or have a psychological disorder. All 3 are not normal, just accepted, there is a difference.

Would you accept the above conditions as abnormal, or are they normal just like you? If you consider the above 3 conditions abnormal, but still view homosexuality as normal, what's the difference?

The question is (should a cure ever happen), would this be pushed to governments as a mandatory procedure by places such as the church?

I would hope, in this case, the government wouldn't be influenced by the Church. No one has any right to change a person for who they are just because someone doesn't think they are right with who they choose to spend their lives with.


This would put homosexuality in a group with other things like Aspergers and ADHD. Of course, parents have the legal right to administer drugs to control these things.

Another question is (if the drug has no effect on heterosexuals), would we be seeing parents administering said drugs before any signs of homosexuality appear as a "just in case" cause? Should such drugs ONLY be allowed to be administered to people once they are over 18 and not parents? Would parents feign homosexuality in an effort to get said drugs to give to their kids?

What? Why do you think this would push a mandatory procedure? If you're schizophrenic, a serious psychological disorder, you're legally allowed to refuse treatment. Only when you become Dangerous are you committed (sent to a hospital so that medication can be forced upon you).

Why would homosexuality, a significantly less dangerous condition, be any different?

No to the first question, yes to the second question.

I agree in a sense. My dad was left-handed, and in school the teachers used to whack kids on the hands with a cane who used their left hand, so he was forced to use the right hand. He can use either now, but the ordeal left him with nervous ticks and twitches for the rest of his life.

I'm left handed too. I'm just glad I wasn't born in a similar time of such intolerance...

Obviously. Why would anyone want to change homosexuality if they're not homosexuals themselves??
