LOL, you can have all the women! But marrying a sheep doesn't make sense because the sheep is not a human being, able to consent to a legal contract. That and being gay does not equate to being attracted to animals. But I appreciate your open minded nature nevertheless.

Thanks, I appreciate that. The world would be a better place if more people thought that way and allowed people to live their lives as they see fit, as long as they're not harming others. Take care.

Waitaminit Big Red....if such a "cure" we're possible, should it be pursued, made available, and/or promoted?
No, a cure should not be pursued.

Imagine someone finding a cure for left-handedness. Or someone finding a cure for being a red-head. Should they be implemented?

Gay people are capable of living a full, happy, healthy, productive life. We do not require any special accommodations in order to exist.

We are not defective and, therefore, should not be the subject of a cure.

Heterosexuals who wish to eliminate homosexuals because it offends their religious belief system are no better than those who have practiced genocide.

It's better that scientists should work on regeneration of lost limbs and other serious disabilities than focusing on people who function just fine without assistance.

By the way, Pietro, do you believe the world would be a better place without homosexuals? Should we be removed from the planet?

Well said. And for those who like facts, homosexuality is not categorized any type of mental disorder, per the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual), which is the standard reference for diagnosing mental disorders. There is nothing to fix or cure. For some reason that evades me, some people in the world can't grasp this and see anyone who is different than their version of "mainstream" has some type of defect.

You say that scientists are looking for a cause for homosexuality because it is a sexual defect.
"Defects" require a cure or elimination.
Check and mate...
First you claimed defects prevent a happy life (one of your lies),

Now you claim they 'require' a cure or elimination. If defects require anything, it is facing the reality of them honestly and fearlessly. Something most homosexuals fail to do. Hence a life built on denial of a defect that has no cure or elimination.

The above paragraph is a synopsis of what I say about homosexuality on here.

Once again, please post where I have promoted the elimination of homosexuals.

Why are you afraid to admit your defect? Instead, you pretend and try to force others to call duplicate genders the same as diverse genders. You throw children off the bus without a thought. You extol gay 'pride' parades as expressions of normalcy, and are embarrassed when pictures expose their depravity. You deny the Bible and science. You abdicate your character with constant lies and childish arguments. The list goes on.

What are you afraid of?

Are there any others? The only sure way to stop homosexuality is to eliminate homosexuals. You can ask homosexuals to be celibate, but you and I both know that's not going to happen.
Kimare has advocated a "cure" for the "cause" of homosexuality. He claims that he knows the cause--some made up nonsense about "epi-marker mistakes". Now he just has to find a scientist who is interested in finding a cure for his made-up disorder.
There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Kimare wants homosexuals eliminated from the planet.
He won't come right out and say so, but simple logic tells you that's what he's advocating.
The man is a monster of the worst kind. He's two degrees of separation from Hitler. He has an ideal world in mind, which is free of homosexuals.
He claims that it's "slander" (LOL) to say this about him. Maybe he can't stand the fact that he's been painted into a corner. Maybe he can't deal with the cognitive dissonance with being a "so-called Christian" while at the same time he wants to see an entire group of people eliminated from the planet.
Who knows why he won't answer the question.
I'll put the question to you, Riccardo... Do you want to see the world rid of homosexuals?
It's a very simple question. It only requires a "yes" or "no" answer.
As noted when I posted the articles about epi-marker mistakes, it is possible a cure would follow. I then noted that the salvation of homosexuals would be (of all people!) Christians who refuse to abort.

I gave an example of what I said, better than a 'yes or no'. Does that sound like I want homosexuals eliminated?

Do you have an example of where I said otherwise troll.

Additionally, my main focus is on pointing out the distinctions between ss couples and marriage, one being the difference between violent anal assaults and normal healthy intercourse.

For that, you slander and malign. You clearly are not 'two degrees' from Hitler.

There is nothing to cure. Homosexuality is not a mental defect. If it was it would be classified as such in the DSM IV or the more recent DSM V. It is not. It is not a physical defect. I have all my parts and they all work just fine :) The only issue is that certain people happen to not like who or what I am. They need to deal with their issue.
If you don't know the cause, you can't claim it is not.

What they do know is that homosexuality is a defective failure of mating behavior. Literally at the roots of evolutions purpose.

Moreover, transsexuals freely admit the wrong body is on their brain.

If you were confident in your condition, you would not be on here. What is the worst that could happen if you admitted the defect? I have, and the honesty has benefited my life over and over.

Earlier today I was labeled "defective" by a poster on this forum, because I am gay. That made me part of the larger topic. I'm sorry you don't like that.
I said homosexuality is a defective orientation. It is.

That is not who you are.

When you understand that, your life will start.

Early on you told me no one would ever choose homosexuality.

Now you choose it?

Do you speak for all homosexuals?

What if some want children? A real marriage and family?

Once again, your denial leads you way down the stupidity dead-end.

I believe that homosexuality is inherited.
I believe that the desire to have children is also inherited. The two inherited situations can exist together. Being born 'gay' does not eliminate the desire to have children.

Regarding Prop 8, IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR, there's a good possibility that we shall know what SCOTUS thinks about it.

And while security around SCOTUS decisions seems to be absolute, the latest I have read and heard is that SCOTUS will PROBABLY say that the Prop 8 case was "improvidently granted, thus rendering a "non-decision" on the case, and returning the case back to Cali, where presumably, the previous decision would stand and make equal marriage rights once again legal in Cali.

Let's hope tho, that SCOTUS decides to render a more sweeping opinion in our favor.

We shall know in less than one hour.......

Well said, plus there already is a cure, it's called Surgery. Ask Chas Bono who went from Lesbian to straight and her Girlfriend went from Lesbian to straight as the result of Bono's surgery.
