I would agree!! If its medical treatment, why would you do that if its personal choice?

Is there even any evidence to say that it is an actual 'disease' in the first place?

No. The only slither of evidence found was within the structure of the brain, in 1991. The majority of this theory has been dismissed in current studies.

Thus, it has not been proven to be anything, never mind a disease.

Therefore, it is not a disease.

Therefore, there is no 'cure' or 'treatment' for it.

Who you love and who you are attracted to is not a personal decision. You do not get to choose who you will have feelings for or who you will be sexually attracted to,and who you will not, regardless of sex or gender. If it was a choice, wouldn't it simply be easier to just not choose it? To not choose ridicule and judgement? To not choose being ostracised and excluded from their friends, family, and society?

The only choice that one can make is to act on it or not, which does not 'change' you as a person, it just forces you to deny, suppress, and hide who you really are.

I genuinely cannot believe that, in this day and age, this way of life and being homosexual, is still seen as a 'disease' that needs to be 'cured'.

The body and it's gender and genitalia, are simply a part of a host. The soul is what lives on, not the body. Therefore I do not understand why people get so upset about having feelings for anyone other than the opposite sex, when the body is perishable anyway. Yet the soul is what is eternal, and I believe that we fall in love with people's souls, regardless of their gender.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with homosexuality. It should not be labelled as such a negative thing as a disease.

When gays are turning out in open, tolerating their same-sex slant, an area of specialists claims that homosexuality can likewise be a sexual introduction issue.

No, that is wrong.

Firstly, a same- sex couple, person, or group should not be called or identified only as a"gay" couple,"gay" person, or"gays". They should just be called people.

Why?

Because they are people, and shouldn't be treated as anything less. Any couple should be able to love one another in public, just as any person should be able to be themselves in public , that should not be an exclusive right or privilege.

Secondly, if the sight of a same-sex couple or person who defies the 'rules' of gender, confuses or sparks interest in someone, they should have the freedom, as well as the moral obligation, to ask questions about it and understand it, rather than automatically ridiculing, judging or being afraid of it.

Thirdly, why are people so interested and obsessed with who , and how other people have sex? It's none of anyone else's business other than those personally invvolved.


The second that society can simply accept the idea that not all relationships have to be of the textbook heterosexual nature, will result in a better understanding, as well as freedom to express oneself openly. As you are now know exactly what you are doing, instead of what others have told you to do, based on prehistoric ideologies and opinions.

Can heterosexuals be cured from asking stupid questions? A sexual preference is not a disease!

I understand it can be cured scientifically with hormones and other ways but why is there a need to cure it? I still believe that hormones may play a role on being a homosexual but for me its more of a personal choice. Psychologically, the person is well aware of his identity.

That is such a shame that even on this age, still there are people that thinks homosexuality is a disorder.

Some doctors in Delhi believe that homosexuality is a mental illness and it can be ‘treated’. And oh, they know and practise these treatments on their ‘patients’.

A sexual introduction is not a malady. Endeavoring to cure homosexuality and indiscriminateness resembles attempting to cure having red hair.

Many homeopaths have reported seeing this happen to their homosexual patients, that after a treatement for a problem like a headache they reported that their former sexual orientation changed from being homosexual to healthy heterosexual.

The American Psychiatric Journal removed homosexuality from the list of mental diseases in 1972. Why? Because a difference in sexuality doesn't support the definition of disease.

I was kicked out of class in junior high when I argued with a student teacher who made the same ridiculous claim. You have to confront these types of harmful and ignorant statements whenever possible. Good for this young lady.

Actually to those that don't know, it is a disease, not a physical perpetrated hate driven disease, it's just brain abnormality, where synapses fire for men instead of women, now don't get me wrong, religion use this as hate speech, but I read a scientific study on how the brain works in hetero vs homosexual males/females.

Homosexuality is not a disease, it is a perverted choice of action and desire. Self gratification and against ALL laws of nature! Sure it is okay to have feelings for those of your same sex, but to take it a level of flagrant sexual perversion and flaunting it that is SICK. In both Homosexuality and Heterosexuality. And to say it is OK, well it isn't. And NO I DO NOT NEED to be KIND to someone that pursues abnormal behavior. Doesn't matter if it homosexuality or simply being a liar. I do not have to accept opinions that others are trying to force upon myself. It is like putting a square peg into a round hole. It just doesn't fit, therefore is abnormal and the real sickness is in believing it is normal and acceptable behavior. Sorry people, take your perversions and excuses elsewhere! You will NEVER fit into normal society acceptance and I for one is tired of all the whining about it.

Homosexuality is wrong and unnatural. Says so in a book that has talking snakes and donkeys, virgin births, a man walking on water, zombies and unicorns, etc.

Please tell me as to why you have the power and authority to claim that something, anything, that in actual fact, does not involve you in any way, shape or form, is"perverted" ,"abnormal" and"sick"?

And if your answer refers to an ancient book that actually makes no sense whatsoever, and is completely irrelevant in this day and age, then it is completely invalid, and you have no point.

It has disregarded as a mental illness, and completely removed from the DSM since 1986. Furthermore, The American Psychological Association has since made effort to eradicate the the previous stigma of the origins of homosexuality entirely.

Yes, in recent years their have been theories and hypothesis of brain abnormalities resulting in homosexuality in individuals. Yet, each one has been tested and dismissed due to the lack of undeniable proof.

Therefore, up until this point it has not been proven to be a disease or illness. So, putting personal or religious bias aside, it is in no need of a"cure".
