Quote# 89865

I brought up the topic of homosexuality as a disease in a chat room the other day, and i was almost kicked out of the room...it was like more taboo that abortion. I found this quite interesting. I think that is the reason there has not been a cure for homosexuality. Can you imagine what the media would do to a story like that? The public would go nuts if they found out that a cure for homosexuality was being worked on. Is it really that bad? Damn MTV and gay rights activists are so hellbent and proctecting the rights of gays and brainwashing them to think that it is completely natural and that it is OK. It is not OK. Homosexuality is the complete opposite of the natural human reproductive process. Humans are not supposed to be attracted to the same sex. Our bodies were designed perfectly for one male and one female. Homosexuality is a chemical imbalance in the brain (just like bi-polarity, depression, etc) and a cure should be researched. Of course it wont actually be worked on for a while, if ever, because of these brainless activists.

Our bodies were designed perfectly for one male and one female.

At the same time? Kinky.

Maybe they should research a cure for religion. Seems like a mental illness to me.

Over the years I've told many a woman that my body was designed perfectly for what I proposed. Fat lot of good it did me.

Only there's evidence of homosexuality having existed for thousands of years, and when it was criminalised, and medicalised, and people were electro-shocked for having same-sex attraction etc, it just went underground. It still existed.
If a percentage of people in society don't have babies, that is a good thing and not a bad thing.

Homosexuality is a difference, not a disease. There is no heterosexual person underneath, so "curing" is impossible. Furthermore, there are reasons to believe that there's an advantage to having part of the population be homosexual even if they themselves don't usually reproduce. That's why it occurs in many species.

As far as I can tell homosexuality seems to be a safety valve against overpopulation.
A survival tool to keep the population from outstripping its food supply.

Of course what do I know...

"I brought up the topic of homosexuality as a disease in a chat room the other day, and i was almost kicked out of the room...it was like more taboo that abortion."

That's because people don't suffer from homosexuality. Some of them do suffer from discrimination, but not from their sexuality itself. How would you feel if people started talking to you about finding a cure for religion?

"It is not OK. Homosexuality is the complete opposite of the natural human reproductive process. Humans are not supposed to be attracted to the same sex."

Homosexuality is a form of romantic and sexual attraction, not an act. If you're talking about gay sex, it's true that reproduction does not take place, but the vast majority of human sexual activity (sex using condoms, masturbation, oral, etc.) does not result in reproduction either.

You can argue about how humans are "supposed" to be all you like, but the fact is that some people are gay, and just because they're in the minority does not mean there's something wrong with them.


"Homosexuality is a chemical imbalance in the brain (just like bi-polarity, depression, etc) and a cure should be researched."

I'm going to need to see a citation on the first half of that. The causes of homosexuality are currently unknown, but I'm not aware of any professional medical organization saying it's caused by a chemical imbalance. And there's no need to cure something that is not harmful.

"Of course it wont actually be worked on for a while, if ever, because of these brainless activists."

Right, we're the brainless ones. We just take the research of thousands of psychologists and doctors around the world on faith! Why didn't we think to instead ask some random religio-political activists on the Internet?

Remember, guys, the less time conservatives waste on pointless things like "research," the more time they can spend convincing swing voters that liberals have no idea what they're talking about.

No, I'm too pissed off to let this go with just sarcasm. You're an idiot. You base your opinions on hearsay instead of the facts, and you project your insecurities about your own intelligence onto the opposition. You and your ilk are going to ruin this country.

I hope they're working on a cure for the belief in Bronze Age mythology.
I'm sure our Christianist friends would be totally OK wity that.

Your argument about what ought to be natural instead of what is natural intrigues me greatly.

Can I reduce your fertility so you produce only one sperm cell a month? One sperm for one egg ought to be perfectly natural. They're perfectly made for each other.

As you should be.

I think that is the reason there has not been a cure for homosexuality.

Because it is no more a disease than having a preference for red-heads.

MTV

That still exists?

and gay rights activists are so hellbent and proctecting the rights of gays and brainwashing them to think that it is completely natural and that it is OK.

I had no idea that MTV still had any onfluence anywhere. Also being gay is OK.

It is not OK

Yes, it is.

Homosexuality is the complete opposite of the natural human reproductive process.

So is anal sex and furries. Your point is then what, exactly?

Humans are not supposed to be attracted to the same sex.

Are you going to tell people what they should be feeling, then? Good luck with that, buddy.

Our bodies were designed perfectly for one male and one female.

No. Evolution does not do design, nor perfection. We are the result of 4.5 billion years of chance and natural selection. This does not dicate that a small porion of the populous has attractions outside the perceived norm.

Homosexuality is a chemical imbalance in the brain (just like bi-polarity, depression, etc)

CITATION DESPERATELY NEEDED!

Dr.Shrinker

So let's look at how you defend your position, shall we?

"Homosexuality is the complete opposite of the natural human reproductive process."

- Irrelevant, as heterosexual people engage in non-procreative sex quite often (note the existence of birth control).


"Humans are not supposed to be attracted to the same sex."

- A subjective opinion, not a fact.


"Homosexuality is a chemical imbalance in the brain..."

- And your evidence for this assertion is...what now?


So let's review your case. You make one pointless comment, offer an opinion as fact and give a single, unsubstantiated argument. You have nothing of substance to support your position. Clearly it is not the marriage-equality activists who are "brainless."

"I brought up the topic of homosexuality as a disease in a chat room the other day, and i was almost kicked out of the room"

"I brought up the topic of homosexuality as a disease in a chat room"

"I brought up the topic of homosexuality as a disease"

"the topic of homosexuality as a disease"

"homosexuality as a disease"

Gee, I wonder why you got "almost kicked out". Maybe because moderators knew some people might, I don't know... get offended by that?

Humans aren't the only species with homosexuals, etc.
I didn't choose to like women, what makes you think other chose to like the same gender as themselves? As long as the reproducing population is significantly greater than the non-reproducing population, why do people worry about that small percentage? The answer: because they have nothing better to do and like to hear themselves whine.

It's not a disease, fuckwad. It's not a mental illness either. And homosexuality isn't caused by a chemical imbalance, that';s just a flat lie.

I could understand if the 'disease' actually hurt individuals beyond the flak they receive... We're talking about people who are just attracted to the same sex though. Who cares if it prevents them from reproducing?

If you're going to focus on curing people of their sexual attractions surely focusing on those attracted to minors would be your first port of call...

UGh. Later in the thread, some wanker counters with anti-hetero crazy (in the form of "heterosexuality doesn't actually exist") that's actually worse than this.
With just as many facts as this post to back it up, i.e., none.

Heterophobes are a novelty. I'm not sure what to think of them.
