    I think it would be very popular as many people feel ashamed of their sexuality and wish to be normal.
    The general consensus amongst scientists (they have plenty of facts, figures and studies) is that sexual orientation is fixed and unchangeable. It has nothing whatsoever to do with hormones, DNA or genes.
    Homosexuality is perfectly normal and natural for gay people. Hence, there is no "cure" for this. Its not a disease or anything!

    Many staunch christians are ashamed of their homosexual desires and try to suppress them. There have all kinds of gay christian organisations which have tried to make gay christians into straight ones, and ALL of them have failed. Because of their religious beliefs, they absolutely reject the fact that homosexuality is perfectly normal and natural for gay people. Its only unnatural and disgusting for straight people!

    So, gay people should be honest with themselves and admit that they are gay and just live a gay lifestyle and marry their gay lover.

    His feelings on this matter have been conditioned by his religion. His religion teaches that homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of the Lord, a terrible sin with the punishment being eternal damnation in hell and a disease. His religion teaches that homosexuality is abnormal, unnatural, and against the natural order of things (meaning against God's will)!
    Its these types of religious beliefs and values (promoted by those fundamentalist and evangelical christians) that cause homophobia.
    The real problem is religion.

    Just reading this title made me ticked off. Do you want to know how it feels to me? If the title was "Cure for heterosexuality" and it makes you mad, that's how I feel. Nobody would even try anyways, it's pointless because it isn't possible. Not even Aperture Science would go that far.

    I'm sorry, no.
    Being not-straight myself, it's just the way I am. I don't get where you'd get the idea that most people who happen not to be straight want to be straight *shrugs*
    Sorry for my rudeness, but being bisexual myself, It's just the way I was born. It's as simple as that.

    The problem is worse than that. Their intolerance of homosexuality is the reason for many sex change operations. Men who find themselves to be gay are often forced to undergo sex changes.

    I don't feel ashamed of my sexuality, and frankly, what is normal? Kids with longer straighter darker hair than me? When I look in the mirror every day, I see a normal 17 year old HUMAN being. What do you see Simon?

    Who else's choice is it? There are no obvious lines we can't cross when we're designing the categories of medicine.

    At any rate I picked the example for obvious reasons. A homosexual distressed at his homosexuality very much seems to be in a simmilar state as the mtf transexual, and insofar as we're willing to admit that the transsexual has a "disorder"- male genitalia -with "a treatment"- a sex change -then I don't see why, except for purely puerile political reasons, we can't admit that a homosexual under distress has a "disorder"- unwanted homosexual feelings -and could seek "treatment"- the end of homosexual feelings -if and when it existed.

    It is ideology only that commits us to the idea that all people with homosexual desires, no matter how distressing to them, are required to embrace them and form a sexual idenity around them. It is simply the reverse of the anti-homosexual ideology, which won't admit that such embrace and acceptance is possible.

    This is the most amazing response ever! i LOVE it literally made my day.. its so true!
    anyway, first of all there will never be a "cure" because being gay is not a disease, its who we are.. thats like saying being straight is a disease, or liking soda is a disease.. its ridiculous.
    2nd of all, just because your gay does not mean your not normal. naturally gay people can be abnormal, but so can straight people.. a lot of people are ashamed of being gay because of people like the starter of this thread who think that being gay is evil or whatever.. makes no sense to me. however, being gay is like saying i like sauerkraut when the majority of people dont. (i dont actually that, its just an analogy). theres nothing wrong with liking sauerkraut, its just a preference

    Homosexuality isn't a disease, and there is nothing wrong with it. People who HATE on homosexuals are the ones who need to be cured.

    As you're not gay, perhaps you don't understand how offensive your post is. How would you feel if I asked you if you wanted a cure for being Scottish, like it's some sort of illness? You wouldn't like it. So no, I would never take a cure for being gay, it defines who I am and who I will be.

    You seem to be obsessed with telling me I'm attempting to play devil's advocate which I'm not so sh.

    I still wouldn't find that offensive.
