#1 Congress implored to denounce sexual-orientation therapy11-29-2012, 06:50 PM

Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat, is proposing the resolution as two lawsuits move through federal court challenging a new California law to ban minors from receiving “sexual-orientation change efforts” under any circumstance.
In a Capitol Hill news conference Wednesday, Ms. Speier said she was introducing her Stop Harming Our Kids resolution to “bring us some reality checks” about sexuality.
“Let’s get this straight,” she said. “Being gay, lesbian [or] transgender is not a disease to be cured or a mental health issue to be treated.”
Therapies aimed at helping someone go from gay to straight are “discredited” and “ineffective,” and minors should not be subjected to them, she said.
She added that she will investigate whether taxpayer funds in Medicaid or Tricare, the Pentagon’s health care system, have been used to reimburse therapists offering such counseling.

The whole thing is... it's a choice. Hear me out.
Sexuality period is a choice. Not so much what you're attracted to, perhaps, but how much you act on said impulses is a decision you have to make. There's a fetish for everything in this world and in fantasy, that doesn't mean people have to act on those fetishes. Or are pedophiles compelled against their will to exploit children?
Thus no, homosexuality is not a mental deviancy requiring treatment. If someone does however wish to seek professional help to change their sexual desires to something more natural (as in, a sexual urge that can lead to actual procreation) why not let em'?
Oh and, just how are children supposed to be gay or straight? Am I the only one who thinks we're pushing them into things a little fast here?I wrote a book! Please come read and support it. No, it's not political.
Allah is a god of peace! That's why all his followers want to commit mass murder.

Because you've got 3% of the population trying to tell 97% of the population what to do.
I could care less what gay couples do in their bedroom.
I don't go flaunting my hetero lifestyle in gay comunities and telling them to shut up and deal with it. That needs to go both ways.
