I'm willing to accept that some people are not clear cut male or female at birth and some are turned gay by chemical exposure. For most of them though they have brain development issues caused by childhood trauma. Most notably the regions involving sexuality.
And yes 66% of homosexuals can be cured.
Please consider the facts:
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States and contains a listing of diagnostic criteria for every psychiatric disorder recognized by the U.S. healthcare system. The current edition, DSM-IV-TR, is used by professionals in a wide array of contexts, including psychiatrists and other physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, occupational and rehabilitation therapists, and counselors, as well as by clinicians and researchers of many different orientations (e.g., biological, psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, family/systems). It is used in both clinical settings (inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinic, private practice, and primary care) as well as with community populations. In addition to supplying detailed descriptions of diagnostic criteria, DSM is also a necessary tool for collecting and communicating accurate public health statistics about the diagnosis of psychiatric disorders.
I certainly find your opinion interesting(but it tells me only about you and what you think.) It doesn't reflect the medical communities data on homosexuality.
Homosexuality is simply not a mental disorder any more(as of 1973). You can think it is if you choose too, but you must be sure to add that this is your opinion based on your own ignorance (the not being current on information kind.) For me, I do not think it is fair to our gay members to post as if your perspective is sound science. IMO, I am sure you meant no harm, and you do have a right to your perspective, and this is just a suggestion-- perhaps in the future it could be given with integrity and compassion for all others. Thank you very much for listening.
