    The point being that "curing" someone who does not wish to be "cured" and does not consider themselves "sick" is an invasion of their rights and criminal.
    There is not a "gay gene" - that is true there are at least three genes that are involved and it is not understood fully how they are "turned on". Research has shown that all mammals will exhibit homosexual behaviors when population densities increase beyond some level. Mammals from mice and rats to the great apes have been studied in this context and it is quite common.

    It is not a disease and therefore does not need a cure.

    Oh but I did address it, homosexuality is as normal as heterosexuality, no one knows what causes either. The fact we assume one this, and not that, is not relevant because this and that switch places dependent on a number of factors called social constructs. Evolutionary biology on the other hand doesn't really care or maybe its idea of care is quite different than our construct.

    There is only one matriarchal society in the world, the Mosuo.

    High estimates say that 10% of the population is homosexual. If we cut off a ridiculously high number and say that another 10% of the population falls into the asexual area, and an additional 10% is bisexual that means that 70% of the population is heterosexual. That means that, despite you lies, that homosexuality is not normal. The average fifth grader understands this, why don't you?

    No one has said a thing about curing someone that does not want to be cured – that is a straw man.

    So any human with a small but statistically measurably genetic trait is not normal. Even you must see the absurdity of that claim.

    I am missing how being homosexual is not normal? Normal in this context meaning to occur naturally. Whats not normal is that a human being would make a choice to be ostracized by society. That alone should provide proof that being gay is natural.

    Natural does not equal normal in any dictionary. This is perfectly natural:

    However, it is NOT normal.

    Do you truly not understand what normal is?

    I do but do you? Here is a dictionary.

    Normal - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    : occurring naturally <normal immunity>

    If there were no other 2 headed snakes ever in the wild then I would get your point but its something that happens naturally and it is normal.
