    (until I can find a catchy title for Mental Health - Worst Moments in Our Lives) The video is so much more than that.

    What a baseless crock of shit. You cannot change from gay to straight just like you cannot change from straight to gay. This gay guy is obviously self loathing and has some serious mental issues.

    I watch TED talks all the time. Most of the speakers are highly intelligent, well studied, well cultured, entertaining, compelling, and have excellent presentations.

    That also means they can be manipulative, cunning, sly, and tell you a bold face lie while making you think their word is the be-all-end-all of any particular topic. Just doing a small amount of my own research on a few of the talks proved that. This is one of those talks, though no research is needed cause it's already been done.

    TED pays good speakers to speak. They've been doing it for several years. Apparently they sometimes fuck up and hire a good liar.

    Someone didn't watch the video.

    P.S.: Gay - Straight is a scale. Yes, you can move your sexuality along that scale through locational astrology.

    Example: Let's say one of the four Mars angles was on the East Coast for your Astro Map and one of the four Venus angles was on the West Coast for your Astro Map.

    On the East coast your sexuality is more macho. On the West coast your sexuality is more into a lifestyle suited to the archetypes of Venus (beauty, art, less aggressive).

    Depending on your natal chart one could move to a place where he is more interested in the other--a 1-7 dynamic where one is the self and 7 is the other.

    What's this you cannot change? Change happens.

    In the video, he's grateful for the encounter but he marries a man.

    Does that suggest that if NASA terraformed Mars and sent a crew of straight astronauts to populate the planet, their sexuality scales would slide to gay, rendering reproduction impossible, and humans would become extinct there before they ever got started?

    Also, in the video, the speaker tells us that everyone is not fortunate to reach the point of living one's identity.

    So, being practical and less idealistic, pick and eat the low-hanging fruit Life gives you. You may have expensive tastes but those expensive goods may not let you consume them.
