Heterosexuality - sexual partiality to people of the opposite sex
Homosexuality - sexual partiality to people of the same sex

My Biology textbook says that. Doesn't mention a disease of any kind. Actually it equalizes homosexuality with heterosexuality just making the difference in partiality.

Homosexuality would have to be a disease before it could be considered in need of a "cure" now wouldn't it?

You have that in your Biology book? O_o
We didnt have it T_T

I dont see why it's called "cure". Homosexuality isn't a desease. Why trying to "cure" something you are? Doesn't make much sense to me.

Alright, we've established that the majority of people in this thread dislike the term "cure", is there any point in discussing that further? And really, some people could see their sexuality as a disease. And if they want to "cure" it, they have that right, don't they? And some of you might say "we'll truely they're still gay" So? A bipolar person on medication may not show symptoms, but they're still bipolar. The same could be true for this.

It depends on how far people are willing to go to find a genetic cure for all of their problems, and not just homosexuality.

I think this is completley absurd...

Modern society is so obsessed with being "normal" and it's ridiculous people are spending time trying to "cure" homosexuality when they could spend there time and money finding a cure for cancer or AIDs...

People nowadys have there priorities so wrong.

the same could be said for people who spend their time manufacturing the newest type of mobile (cell phone) but the public still want the latest.

There's plenty of things scientist spend their time on which could be better spent elsewhere so there's really no point discussing it, it just goes round in circles.

What the hell? There is a cure for homosexuality? That is wrong I think. My reasons being that why should there be a cure? Homosexuality is not wrong. It's not a crime. It is feelings. You can't change your feelings very easily. Homosexuality, in my mind, is only considered a crime by some people is because it's a minority of people, not a majority. If only a quarter of the world was straight then that would become a crime...


i rambled a bit there and i hope i made sense. Feel free to challenge me on anything i said...

Well... for certain religions, it can be considered wrong.
That's a major reason why people aren't too fond of homosexualtity.
But yes, when something is outnumbered, then it's wrong in this society.
That can't be helped anytime soon.

I am extremely angry about this. Why do people have to change their sexuality by going to through a treatment?


If it doesn't effect you in any way, and people do it willingly, is it really any skin off your nose whether or not people do this sort of thing?

And if you are what you are, then one who wants to change their sexuality is who they are, and its not your place to judge them or what they do with their lives.

The fact that people think that homosexuality needs a cure is appalling. I mean it’s not a disease it’s something you’re born with. You can’t ‘catch’ it and you don’t choose to be it. It’s in your DNA and that has been almost proven since pigs in Germany were found to be lesbian and since animals can’t really make the same choices like humans can experts agreed that it meant that you couldn’t choose to be homosexual it’s something you were since birth, like having blue eyes, it can’t be changed. The only reason no one knows about the German pigs bit is because it was on BBC one day before the pope (who is German) had the story hushed up.

If God is so forgiving shouldn’t he also be accepting?

I’m bisexual and get a lot of unnecessary shit about it at school but I don’t care. People just can’t understand something that goes against what they had been taught growing up. People were taught smoking wasn’t it bad for you and it took years and years before anyone accepted anything different.

My sister Katherine sums it up perfectly.

Well, way to be blunt. I just think that if God (if he even exists) is supposed to be so great then he should accept everyones differences.

I think what courtney means by that ''No'' is that forgiving someone for sinning is completely different for accepting.

To forgive someone for a sin it means that person realises what they have done is wrong and the big boss man upstairs forgives him. For god to accept homosexuality is asking him to accept sin and as much as the next xentence makes me sound like a bible basher i'm going to say it anyway

Only the devil accepts sin.

Homophobia is bad.I dont care about someone's sexual orientation.It doesn't matter. Some of my friends are bisexual and homosexual. I'm hetero.
The real problem is the way of thinking of some homosexual persons- they want to be toleranced but there's no way becouse they want to make their sexual orientation the most important thing. That's why people want to heal them.

Well then I guess my sister was quoting Robin Williams. And it's okay that you can't remember what you wanted to add, it'll come back to you soon.
