Skin colour is immutable and cannot be changed. Homosexuality is more akin to alcoholism or drug addiction and can most certainly be altered if one chooses to do so. A fact remains a fact whether you choose to ignore it or not.
LIVING PROOF HOMOSEXUALS CAN CHANGE
Excerpts from "Homosexuality and the Truth" by Sy Rogers & Alan Medinger:
"Whatever may be the possible unlearned assistance from constitutional sources, the child's psychosexual identity is not written, unlearned, in the genetic code, the hormonal system or the nervous system at birth." - John W. Money. Ph.D., Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Professor
"Homosexuality, the choice of a partner of the same sex for orgastic satisfaction, is not innate. There is no connection between sexual instinct and the choice of sexual object. Such an object choice is learned, acquired behaviour; there is no inevitable genetically inborn propensity toward the choice of a partner of either the same or opposite sex." - Dr. Charles W. Socarides, Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.
"The genetic theory of the homosexual has been generally discarded today. Despite the interest in possible hormone mechanisms in the origin of homosexuality, no serious scientist today suggests that a simple cause-effect relationship applies." - Masters and Johnson
"The homosexual's real enemy is his ignorance of the possibility that he can be helped."- Dr. Edmund Bergler, "Homosexuality: Disease or Way of Life?"
"The success rate in 81 gays desiring reorientation (after a six year follow-up), is 71.6% (p.402) - Masters and Johnson - "Homosexuality in Perspective"
"For those homosexuals who are unhappy with their life and find effective therapy, it is 'curable'." - "Overcoming Homosexuality" by Dr. Robert Kronemeyer
"I've heard of hundreds of other men who have went from a homosexual to a heterosexual adjustment on their own." - Dr. Lawrence J. Hatterer (“Changing Homosexuality in the Male” p.138)
"The major challenge in treating homosexuality from the point of view of the patient's resistance has, of course, been the misconception that the disorder is innate or inborn." - Dr. Charles Socarides (from “Homosexuality” in the American Handbook of Psychiatry)
"I have recently had occasion to review the result of psychotherapy with homosexuals, and been surprised by the findings. It is paradoxical that even though politically active homosexual groups deny the possibility of change, all studies from Schrenck-Notzing on have found positive effects, virtually regardless of the kind of treatment used…” - Dr. Reuben Fine, Director for the New York Centre for Psychoanalytic Training. (“Psychoanalytic Theory, Male and Female Homosexuality: Psychological Approaches“ pp 84-86)
The Journal recently published a "Position Statement on Psychiatric Treatment and Sexual Orientation" that had been approved by the Board of Trustees of the American Psychiatric Association R1575BCFFICJJ. That statement correctly cautions mental health professionals that there is little scientific evidence to support the efficacy of treatments designed to change sexual orientation. That statement was intended to address the matter of homosexuality and to take a clear stand "against discrimination, prejudice, and unethical treatment…, including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation" (p. 1131).
The psychiatric profession still correctly considers pedophilia to be a mental disorder. However, like heterosexuality and homosexuality (orientations that differ from one another on the basis of differences in sexual attraction), pedophilia, too, can be thought of as a sexual orientation that is different from others on the basis of age of attraction. As with other sexual orientations, irrespective of the relative contributions of genetics and environment, maturing individuals discover the nature of their own attractions; such attractions are not the consequence of a volitional decision. Historically, untold numbers of human beings have been both demonized and vilified simply because their sexual makeups differ from the norm.
In the case of pedophilia, society must insist, for good reason, that persons who are sexually attracted to children are forbidden from acting on these attractions. As with alcoholism, such persons need to have access to effective treatments that can enable them to successfully resist succumbing to unacceptable temptations. However, just as has been the case historically with homosexuality, society is currently addressing the matter of pedophilia with a balance that is far more heavily weighted on the side of criminal justice solutions than on the side of mental health solutions.
Individuals whose sexual orientation is directed toward children manifest the same range of personality, temperamental, and character traits as individuals whose sexual orientation is directed toward adults. A recent Journal articleR1575BCFEJFHH documented that the vast majority of individuals with pedophilia showed no evidence of either antisocial or narcissistic personality disorder. It may be no easier for a person with pedophilia to change his or her sexual orientation than it is for a homosexual or heterosexual individual to do so.
Without condoning sexual misconduct (and without equating the consequences of acting on an attraction toward children with the consequences of acting on attractions toward adults), the American Psychiatric Association should develop a contemporary policy statement regarding pedophilia. It should encourage nondiscriminatory and objective public policies and professional education, increased availability and access to appropriate psychiatric care, and the immediate establishment of an intensive research effort to more effectively address this important societal and mental health issue.
In an interview with ABC, president of the USA expressed his support for marriage between same sex couples. He is the first US president to openly support homosexual marriage. This is in the background where North Carolina last week became the 30th state to ban gay marriage. I support gay marriage too, on the assumption that marriage is a monogamous, committed relationship. Marriage will coerce gays to be more accountable and socially responsible. I wish that gay marriage would eliminate promiscuity and thus less STD’s. I highly doubt that supporting gay marriage will have an effect on the problems like within the gay community. Even though gays fancy the idea of marriage, most of them do no want it.
I hope Obama’s change of views, change of heart is not about winning political advantages. He used to believe that marriage is only between a man and a woman only. His opponent, Republican in the 2012 Presidential election - Mitt Romney opposes gay marriage. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/mitt-romney-reaffirms-opposition-gay-marriage-210253937.html
වෛද්යවරයෙක් හැටියට මට කියන්න ඕන සමලිංගිකත්වය කියන්නේ රෝගයක් නෙවේ. නමුත් මේක සමාජමය ගැටලුවක්. මේ අය මානසික අසමතුලිතතාවයන් ඇති අය.
සමලින්ගිකත්වයට නැඹුරු වූ ඇතැම් අය සමාජ සම්මත විවාහයන්ටත් එළඹෙනවා. ඒ තම කැමැත්තෙන් වෙන්නත් පුළුවන්. විවිධ බලපෑම් නිසා වෙන්නත් පුලුවන්. මේ වගේ අය විවාහ වුනාම ඇතැම් විට ප්රශ්නය සහකරු හෝ සහකරියටත් බලපාන්න පුළුවන්.
සමලින්ගිකත්වයට නැඹුරු වූ එක්තරා කොටසක් ඉන මුදවා ගත හැකියි.

සමලිංගික ප්රවර්ධකයන්ට තවමත් අපේ පාසල් ඇතුලට රිංගන්න බැරිවෙලා තියෙනවා. ඒත් ඒ අය විවිධ උපක්රම හා වාර ප්රකාශන හරහා අපේ උසස් අධ්යාපන ආයතනවලට රිංගන්න උත්සාහ දරන ලද අවස්ථාවන් තියෙනවා. ඒ නිසා අපේ උසස් අධ්යාපන ආයතනවල බලධාරීන් තමන්ගේ ආයතනවලට බාහිරින් එන පුද්ගල කණ්ඩායම හා සංවිධාන පිලිබඳ සැලකිල්ලෙන් සිටිය යුතුයි.

Some Interesting Quotes
Fanshawe asks, "Why do we seem hell bent on behaving like eternal teenagers?"
"Extreme vanity" he says, has been "sewn into gay culture." It "is now so mainstream in the gay community that otherwise intelligent young men are happy to be treated as sex objects on a demeaning meat rack."
Gay men, he says, are so "hardwired" towards finding casual sexual encounters, some going as far as plastic implants to enhance their appearance, that finding genuine intimacy is "practically impossible."
"Vast amounts of our leisure time are organised around sex, straight or gay. But what gay men have done is organise our identity around sex. And that is corrosive. And to make things worse, promiscuity has become the norm."
The documentarian asks the proprietor of a gay sex bath house, "Paul", who had just related some graphic stories of group sexual encounters in the establishment, "Are we just swimming around in a sewer which we’re just sort of saying is normal?"
