    From my conversations with the big guy (Gunny :lol:), i think I'm ok to start this up again. I think this is proof that the moderation on this board is fair and if you just talk with them before going nuts you can sometimes get things fixed without the drama.

    So... can we please try to have this discussion again, but keep the focus on the possibilities and ethics of it and not your personal opinions about me and my motivation for starting the discussion? I would be very appreciative. :)

    That said...

    What if there were a medical solution for homosexuality? This could take many forms. Maybe it could cure an adult, or maybe it could be done pre-natally. Maybe it would only a short term fix and required ongoing therapy to make "stick". In any case what I'm talking about would be voluntary for an adult or at the discretion of a parent for a child.

    So... would you be in favor of any or all of these methods and why or why not?

    Discuss.

    People are free to do what they want. I Imagine there would be side effects though.

    I wish there was a medical solution to fixing my slice or my backhand.

    Some people are not happy to be gay. For them it is a problem. Some people don't like their noses, or their love handles or their natural hair color.

    Amanda ,

    I am beginning to think you may be fighting some very deep Lesbian urges.

    I'm not trying to be a dick or a perv or anything....but I do truly believe this.

    It’s a completely hypothetical question, about something that doesn’t exist, and is likely to never exist.

    If our medical scientists were ever allowed to used research money to “cure” gays, they should be fired and laughed out of their professions.

    Medical research is supposed to be about finding cures to things that harm people. Being gay doesn’t harm anyone.



    If you need an answer to this fantasy question, which has zero basis in reality, I think any human being has the right to take any pill they want to.
