confirmed a few things that I think most would agree with, if only they didn't allow their sheeple mentality to get in the way as its swayed by their
peers and media control. I suggest you dig out the book 'The Primal Scream' by Dr. Arthur Janov. One of the brave people who see the harm that his
profession is doing and tries to change from within but as usual in the medical and other controlled professions gets slated. (snip) Incidentally
just a very small portion of his book focuses on homosexuality but he believes this mental disorder just like obesity, drugs, violence can all be
cured and his second book some 10years later following specific cases shows this!
You do realize that this is not a new theory, it's a very old theory (as in the beginning of the profession of psychology, think Freud) and has been
pretty roundly rejected, right?
It's interesting to me in this thread that no one is making a distinction between people they are physically attracted to and people they fall in
love with. A number of people have said that they "fall in love" with the soul, not the body; and that it can happen without knowing what the other
even looks like.
I completely agree with that. But it doesn't mean that I don't have attractions based purely on things like physical features or the way a guy
moves. I have both been very attracted to men who I frankly rather dislike, and in love with men who are not at all my physical "type".
I have some control over the latter, because it takes time to fall in love with someone, but virtually no control over the former – only the choice
whether or not to act on attraction.
I have never been physically attracted to a woman, and I think that's what makes me straight, not that I've fallen in love with men. I think I fall
in love with men but not women because I just don't think about women that way. But I'm pretty sure that part of why I don't think about women that
way is that I couldn't have a sexually fulfilling relationship with one.
I just can't really imagine that it's any different for homosexuals. Why would it be?
I think the epigenetics hypothesis is very interesting, too, and I could see that being the key. And I really hope that we as a society get over our
homophobia before we get to technology to change it.
