If there was a pill that could make a gay person straight.....
If the medical community was able to identify what causes a person to be attracted to a specific gender and came up with a pill that could make a gay person straight.....would that be something that should be available to the public?
Should homosexuality be looked at as something that should be fixed or is that line of reasoning unethical?
If you are gay.....would you consider taking it?
If you are a parent of a gay child... would you force that child to take it?
I was discussing this with a gay friend of mine the other day. He was bothered by the idea that homosexuality is something that needs to be fixed, an idea that I agreed with him is wrong. This person said no way to the pill at first but after thinking about all the grief he has been through because of his homosexuality said that he would seriously consider it if the pill had existed before he came out.
In an ideal world, the idea of a pill to fix part of what makes a person who they are is abhorrent and wouldn't/shouldn't even have to be discussed but I have to wonder if for some gays the continued lack of acceptance by many, especially when its family and friends, would make a "straight" pill attractive.
