    Oh my gooodness. So homesexuality is a like a mental disease now and you can go to counseling and be 'cured'? Well, I should tell my niece about this and her homophobic mother will be more than willing to pay for the counseling.

    Actually, it was considered so until the late 1970s or early 1980s. You can still find charletans willing to provide a "cure," but most of the psychiatric profession recognizes the futility (and lack of necessity).

    No need for that. Just throw a few pics of Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt in front of him and watch for a.....reaction.

    He and his family would be better served to just shut up and get out of town. Hasn't he humiliated all them enough already?

    I had a friend who's parents put him into counseling in the early 80's.
    Obviously it didn't work. He had his first sexual experience with someone he met in a bar and got AIDS. When he found out he was sick he was afraid to tell his parents so the disease progressed pretty rapidly and he died.
    I still miss him and his parents have never forgiven themselves.

    I almost expected a sub-headline under the big one to read:

    "Homosexuals everywhere are safe at last"

    Let me first say, that I do not consider homosexuality a disease. However, if it is behavior that you want to change, much like drug or alcohol use, why couldn't therapy help you change that behavior? A recovered drug addict may still want the drug, but realizes that it is unhealthy and chooses not to do it. Do you all not believe that there could be such a thing as a "recovered homosexual"?

    I am not defending him, but do believe that he can control his actions "IF" this is what he chooses to do. Just putting it out there for opinions.......

    What does an "incomplete" heterosexual look like? Missing vital equipment?

    I'm so sorry, csds. Most of us have lost too many, haven't we.
