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

If you want to be gay, fine. If you don't fine, but if you force someone forcefully in either direction, the person deserves death.

Personally I don't think I need therapy for a part of me that isn't doing me, or others, any harm. uvu If anyone thinks I need to be 'cured' they can piss off : P

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 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.

Your reply to my comment makes no sense, and that comment no longer reflects my current opinion. You may go about your business rest assured I am more open minded towards the LGBT community than I was when I wrote that, and that my opinion has only gotten more and more complex.

thank you for your time young human, I appreciate you considered me worth commenting towards.

I am aware your opinions and views must have changed over the course of two years. 
I'm just a lonely human wandering across the quiet realm of the internet. 
That, and I felt like commenting. 

As for my comment not making sense, I was referring to your statement of never meeting someone 100% certain about their sexuality who was under the age of sixteen.

Well I dont care how old you are are...

you should never ever ever ever be 100% certain of your sexuality.

there is always margin for error, and possible exceptions to the rule.

being 100% sure of anything is a goddamned stressful nightmare.

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.

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.

I don't think they really understand that sexuality can be very fluid and that fluidity is various among alot of different people -- meaning not everyone is the same. I'm not big on getting people to convert anyway...

Homosexuality is wired into the brain.. But the Brains wiring can change with time. I have Asperger's Syndrome and Pan-sexuality... Let me tell you it has been a bumpy ride but the Asperger's has gotten better!

It's true that it can be very fluid as you say, although as I understand it isn't it more common to be 'fluid' in women than it is in men?

Yeah, research has found that almost (something precent I dont remember but I know it was alot) that people who went through the consintration-I mean-Gay camps where still gay, it just made them feel guilty about who they where.
