Christ... There is so much wrong with this commentary. It's hard to know where to start.<quoted text>No, disrespect but you can not turn a political crap shoot into something stable. The gay activists do not care about harm, they only care about cause and effect. If they were pedophiles, many are, they would be doing the same thing.
They have used the APA to lie about homosexuality not being a choice and not being a mental condition and not being able to be cured.
They do not want all to know that the same mental psychosis that causes gays and some straight to be attracted to children causes gays to be attracted to the same sex.
Answer this, do you think that nicotine and alcohol are the problem, or is it addiction?
When a gay man is attracted to a 14-17 year old boy is he attracted to a child or to a young youth? Is it a boundary issue or a pedophile issue?
Second, when a child is abused and grows up to choose homosexuality, and this repeatedly happens, why do gay activists ignore and try to silence the medical profession which says that it is a primary causation factor for homosexuality?
If these issues are out there, they shall always remain. It is a hurdle that you all do not wish to climb.
1.) Psychologists, medical professionals, and scientists determine what should and should not be considered an illness based on two factors:(a) does the issue cause significant emotional or physical harm to the individual? and (b) does the issue impact the individual's ability to function in the greater community?
Homosexuality does neither of these things. There are millions of happy, functional, law abiding gay and lesbian people living around the world.
THIS is why homosexuality was removed from the list of disorders.
2.) The vast majority of pedophiles in this country have the following common characteristics: educated, Caucasian, married, male, and religious. So, I'm not sure where you get your information about many gays being pedophiles, but it's a myth. You have been corrected. Please don't allow this complete and utter lie escape your lips again.
3.) If a gay OR straight man OR woman acts to have sex with a minor, it is considered child abuse or pedophilia, determining on how the jurisdiction defines the crime.
A person's orientation or gender does not matter when it comes to enforcing the law.
4.) Please show me where any legitimate scientist, medical professional or psychiatric professional has shown a causative effect between childhood sexual abuse and the victim's choice to become gay.
5.) Please show me where any legitimate scientist, medical professional, or psychiatric professional has determined that people CHOOSE to become gay.
Keep in mind that gays and lesbians make up a very small minority of people around the world--anywhere from 4% to 6% depending on the figure. How on earth could such a small minority have the tremendous political pressure that you claim we possess? How could such a small number of people force scientists, physicians, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals to change their minds regarding homosexuality being a choice.
Based on what you wrote, you are an uneducated person who doesn't allow the facts to stand in your way when you spout such ridiculousness.
I often say to people on this forum that it's better to do a minimum of research on the issue before you open your mouth and expose yourself to be totally wrong.
Obviously you have a computer. You could Google any one of the issues you brought up. You obviously can read. You can go to any library and do a small amount of research. You have NO excuse for being ignorant in this day and age.
