Stamp: Cure this by 8manderz8 Stamp: Cure this by 8manderz8
I know this one's a bit mean sounding, but this one is partially not as serious as the other stamps I do sometimes. I don't actually think that people who endorse conversion therapy are stupid. I just think that the idea is stupid, and potentially dangerous if people are pushed into it unwillingly.

The serious bit:
:bulletpink:Gay Conversion Therapy Torture Victim - short video.

:bulletblack:"Curing" Gays: Understanding Conversion Therapy - 30 minute long documentary. Worth watching.

:bulletpink:'Ex-Gay' Leader Admits There Are No Ex-Gays

:bulletblack:Gay 'conversion' therapies give moral authority to bullies, says ex-missionary

:bulletpink:Gay Conversion Therapy Devastated my Family

:bulletblack:California weighs bill to ban gay teen 'conversion' therapy

:bulletpink:California Senate Moves to Ban Gay-To-Straight Therapy for Kids

In the past, i just don't care about gays, but today if you are not WITH gay, same clan you are homophobe

Today you have all that pussy feminist who piss me off.

I'm against gay, i'm straight and you can call me whatever you want,but i'm not STUPID.

If i'm STUPID you are just a freak of nature !

I think if anyone willingly subjects themselves to that therapy has the right to make that choice, I dont think anyone has a right to say what people can choose for their life. If they want to stop being gay that is their business.

People shouldnt feel pressured into being gay, anymore than they should be pressured into being straight.

Of course it should be illegal to force children into such a program . . .which is odd that this was ever even a thing because I have never known a person younger than 16 to be 100% sure of their sexuality . . . gay or straight.

So long as they're not children or teenagers being forced into it, I don't see the problem. If an adult makes that decision all by themselves then that's their choice.

I'm not sure exactly how someone would feel pressured into being gay, I have to say..

You dont see? It happens all the time, people feel the pressure from the homosexual community to not "betray" them. Some people just stop being gay, just like some people stop being straight.

As well by denying that people have a choice how to live their lives, they are denying people their basic human right to be who they want to be.

Wow, I never heard of any of that going on, but I guess it depends on your circle of friends.

every single stamp that says "it is not a choice" is denying everyone a basic human freedom through an ideology born of a pathetic attempt to appeal to republicans by appealing to the "all men are created equel" thing

Uh, you know, basically emotions denying freedom at some level. Being gay or straight, depends what "part of it" do you mean. Cuz you people date the gender they are attracted to, and I don't think you can change who you are attracted to.

Look, I dont want to get into it too deeply. But I will simplify how I "FEEL" okay, I feel that denying the idea that homosexuality is a choice is to deny people the right to be homosexuals on their own terms. Because if it is not a choice, if it is genetic or developmental... then it is curable.

and before you say "that is like curing a person for having an arm" ... yeah I know, but think in terms of x-men... mutants were curable, but it doesnt make it right. And concerning curing a person for having an arm... yeah we do have a "cure" forthat too, its called axe.

It depends what do you mean under homosexuality. The attraction to the same gender, or gay sex, or same-sex dating. If we mean attraction, I hear all homosexuals saying that it's not a choice, so I believe them cuz I think they know their own stuff. I mean they should probably notice if it were a choice, right? I think it is a choice to hang up with whoever you want, but can you imagine, that you start thinking, like: "oh I think I should fall in love with him/her. Yep, that's  a good idea, I'm falling in love in two minutes".

So I think it is a choice to date what gender you would like, it's a choice what gender you would like to have sex with, but I always hear gays taking about realizing their preference, not choosing it. So how do you change an emotional attraction?

And you talked about free will, well, I think basically our instincts restrict our free will at some extent. Not fully, but partially. Near-death situations are good example of them limiting free will.
