It's been entirely politicized.
ANYONE who thinks being gay is 'innate' and an essential part of ones being, is one confused motha-ucker - you have not understood the message of the
oracle of delphi: know thyself.
Anyone who thinks that certainly, does not and CANNOT know themselves, otherwise they wouldn't be so vain and naive to think sexuality could be an
essential part of their being, when the essence of what they are is non-conditioned: this is a basic staple of all esoteric or spiritual traditions;
atman, adam kadmon (or yechida), etc - i point this out because philosophical traditions have always agreed on the essential freedom men possess at
this foundational point of consciousness.
It's an emotional issue, case closed. Anyone who thinks differently I am simply too tired to deal with. I'll concede that morally - I have no case in
stating it is wrong, but PSYCHOLOGICALLY, it is simply patently false to insist that ones homosexuality is as basic to ones being as ones height. It
is pure stupidity. It is laughable that people can even be led to believe such trite nonsense by a tendentious media that blatantly pushes this
Anyone of you could feel homosexual feelings: if you think that isn't true, you're either lying to yourself or to afraid to engage in such a thought
We attract that which we want to. There are just basic elements that need to be present: tension. For instance, the tension between fantasy and
The reason a straight person doesn't bother inculcating homosexual feelings is because he already has a fully defined and clarified sexual attraction
towards women, thus, all his feelings/energy is channeled in this direction. But, if he simply shifted his perspective, that which incites feelings of
attraction towards women, could spur feelings towards men, and the assortment of thoughts-feelings which accompany sexual arousal would be shifted to
the other sex.
Hierarchically, the emotional, or heart center, is what provides the emotional energy for the libido, or sexual center. If the emotional aspect isn't
there, or feels exhausted, there will be no sexual attraction. This is demonstrable in he case where a married couple lose sexual attraction for one
another because it has become 'repetitive'; the emotional aspect - the love, or feelings of excitement, has dissipated, and thus so has the libido. To
remedy this situation some 'tension' needs to be introduced, which is often something taboo or unusual. The Taboo conflicts with a commonly held
belief or feeling, which provides the emotional tension, exciting the dulled heart, stimulates the imagination which ultimately creates libido; the
emotional awareness of the heart becomes transmitted to the sexual awareness of the groin region. A basic transfer of energy from one conscious center
Homosexuality is ultimately rooted in early life experiences. I agree that there are probably genetic influences. But genetic merely means 'a
predisposition of consciousness' in a certain direction, perhaps not that more authoritative than astrological influences. It is suggestible, yes. It
does incline the personality in a certain direction: but it is NOT the final authority in how the individual develops.
The major problem is how the individual responds to these feelings. Everyone who's ever had an emotional issue - a phobia, lets say, knows that
seeking to repress the feeling actually DRAWS and ACTIVATES the feelings In the case of a homosexual, the thought "I think I may like men", which
early on in youth is merely an emotional, and not so much a sexual attraction, later on inclines the consciousness towards sexual feelings. This
natural ambivalence and confusion - of feeling an emotional and sexual preference for members of the same sex - is obviously not interpreted
positively; associated with it are feelings of embarrassment, guilt, shame, disgust, forcing the individual to repress the feelings.
None of this needs to be. You cannot WORK ON THE HEART WITH FORCE without igniting a counterattack from the heart: it needs to be worked with gently,
subtly, and through suggestion. You cannot identify with emotions - as the ridiculous media tries to make people think - and yet try to correct them.
There needs to be a separation made between the mind and the heart in order for the mind to REPROGRAM the heart.
Because homosexuality is emotional, first, and only subsequently sexual, you have to address the anterior issue if you seek to correct it's consequent
I don't mean to offend anyone here, I am merely stating a basic psychological fact. I'm not passing moral judgement, you may believe what you will. I
will not, however, tolerate these lies and deception that homosexuality is an unalterable fact and that those individuals who seek to correct their
orientation are being 'misled'. ON THE CONTRARY - It is everyone else, being misled by a mendacious media ultimately with the aim of uprooting basic
social functions i.e. the family.
Read Platos Republic and you will see why they want to normalize gay marriage. It'll be the first step to the ultimate eradication of the conventional
family structure, leading to a society in which children are raised by the state - and not individual family units.
