By your argument, then, reparative therapy should work fine on heterosexuals, too. But we know it doesn't. Unless you're talking about five or more beers and the right situation.
Most people have a minor and a major. That doesn't change. Whether someone stuffs their preferred orientation - as you have - or does not the minor and the major remain the same. Their expression or suppression can change. The minor and the major don't. Not even if you pray to thong wearing, hunky carpenter, jeesus.
Just ask Marcus Bachmann or Larry Craig, imo.
Why would a heterosexual need repair, they are already normal. If you believe there are heterosexuals who would prefer to be queer like you, it simply illustrates the inverted thought processes that occur in the homosexual brain, ie: heterophobia.
Homosexuality is the only human affliction where the afflicted would rather remain afflicted than be normal. That would infer that the cause of homosexuality is not biological.

I like the smell of girls panties. It reminds me of my college days when I worked a summer on a shrimp trawler down in Louisiana.

Very effective and logical reasoning.

Nonetheless, reconsider your use of "infer." It would be "imply" in this instance. You could say "I would infer...", or "That would imply..."

No, as you so aptly illustrate, there are "heterosexuals" who are deeply, obviously conflicted.

But the point wasn't whether heterosexuals wish a therapy to change their sexual orientation - no one of any sexual orientation wants that, except for a few unfortunates who fall into some sick, fundie miasma - the point was to illustrate how little sense your claims about sexual orientation and reparations [sic] therapy made.

But you knew that as sure as you obsess over all things (male) homosexual for hours each week.
