    This is a growing misunderstanding worldwide. Being gay or being a lesbian isn’t the choice to be made; the choice lies in whether one lies to him/herself, essentially ignoring the feelings that are still there. So called “former gays” haven’t really changed who they are. They are simply covering up a part of themselves they don’t wish others (or themselves)to see. It needs to be made clear that the choice doesn’t lie in attraction to either sex, it lies in the action taken thereafter. As a homosexual, my gut feeling is not that homosexuality is strange or wrong, but when I see heterosexual couples, I get the feeling that “straight” is odd. This has occured to me ever since I was a young child and my older sister brought her boyfriends over to the house. This was before I even knew what “gay” was. So, I do agree that people should go with their gut feelings.. Just know that NOT all gut feelings say that homosexuality is wrong, but everyone knows that discrimination and prejudice is wrong. Quite frankly, I’m sick of people saying that allowing same-sex marriage is “playing on God”, well, telling people that God doesn’t want them in a church just because they’re gay IS playing on God, because there is no way that ANYONE, including the authors of the Bible, can speak for God. The fact is Homosexuals exist, and that speaks volumes for and in itsself.

  4. I wish all the people who are proponents of curing gay people spend time doing the same thing. Let the straight man spend their time in gay ;and trying to develop attributions to the men. And women too. when the tell another women that they need to change to

    Is it hard? Impossible? Do you feel confused and want to kill yourself?
