I grew up with a bisexual father, homosexual neighbors, and I just had a room mate who was gay. None of them would willingly change, because that's the way they thought, and that's the way they lived. If I recall, all of them were happy.
I'm gay too. I'm happy with being gay. However, I've said this before in various ways, but when the scientists find out what causes gayness and how to prevent or change it, that will be sad. The people who are gay are fine, but if you ask their parents if they wanted to change their kids at the point of birth, to make them straight, I think a lot of them would.
Just like how they might go for things that could dermine the outcome of their children being more likely to become successful people such as being an doctor, etc.
Like that whole Left-hand thing fiasco... did you know that many parents actually forced a lot of their children to become right-handed because of many bullcrap studies about right-handed people being more prone to success, etc. And also the fact that the majority of people are righthanded, rather than left-handed.
And of course the parents didn't want their poor left-handed children to be left out, so they'd pretty much resort to methods of making their children right-handed instead.
I actually had a few teachers who tried to force me to write and draw with my right hand... *rolls eyes*
What is it with people wanting all people, espeically children, to confirm with the majority even though being different isn't so bad?
It's a sad fact of life, that many parents often want their children to be a certain way if they feel that it would bring their children more success and happiness in life. Which of course is a setiment that's not bad at all, but as you know there's that saying that goes: "Even the most well-meant intentions can pave the path to hell."
