    But being a homophobe and changing your sex through surgery is politically correct. Gays are just like sheep that mindlessly follow the leader.

    I enjoy being gay but why is is necessary to make it illegal to try to change your sexual orientation?

    Why would you expect them to remove advertisements that increase their profits?

    I'll repost my question here


    SO, how do you force men to like vagina and everything that goes with it? Is that like when I was a kid and my mom forced me to eat Lima beans, even though I would sit at the kitchen table for hours, not eating them or "secretly" feeding them to the dog by throwing them on the floor? To this day, I never acquired a taste for Lima beans, I hated them then and I still hate those things. But Lima beans are good for you, is vagina the same thing, good for you? If I wanted a child, I can always go the in vitro-surrogate way without my penis going near a vagina, gay men can have children, we are not sterile

    I do not like, green eggs and ham icon_rolleyes.gif

    Lots of non-medical things are illegal. Also consider that you're begging the question here: something in your question assumes you CAN change your sexual orientation (you can hear that you're implying that, right?).

    Comparing ex-gay therapy to gender reassignment--which actually has medical efficacy, in that a knife and hormone treatments are actually pretty effective on that front, while ex-gay therapy is some of the sloppiest pseudoscience there is--is a pretty big apples and oranges thing.
