    OK.
    So we have a long quote from the BBC.
    Thanks.

    But tell me, what do you think…

    On my news threads, I usually leave the story there unbiased, and then participate in the discussion, if one develops.

    Basically. :D
    It seems to work well enough, as this will clearly be a hot topic.

    It's like a title heading on the BBC story. I'll fix the quote.

    How long before we see some wacko trying to inject gay people with serotonin to "cure" them?

    I think that this is an interesting point. Would any of the homosexuals who visit this forum willingly take a "cure" for homosexuality?
    If my own preference were the one oppressed in mainstream religion, and I had limited rights because of it, I think that I would change, provided there were no adverse side effects.

    I am curious though how much serotonin is needed…
    Going to the gym and doing some strenuous exercise (apparently) raises my serotonin levels.

    Can't say I feel remotely hetero afterwards.

    On the contrary…

    Edit: So much for serotonin levels, but my spelling is ******. :)

    I would imagine if SSRIs made gay people straight we'd have heard by now. We certainly hear about how they make many people not want to have sex with anybody at all.

    Thats probably because at the end of the gym session, you're in a hot room, fully of sweaty, barely dressed men. And a few old guys just wondering around wearing nothing at all.

    1. Why should anyone's religious views influence me?
    2. My rights (where I live) are not severely limited;
    3. I am happily married to a man I love…

    Why would I want to change?
    :confused:

    True dat. ;) :p

    Lots of serotonin in bananas. Bananas are definitely not straight. Ergo, this science is flawed. Where's my Nobel prize?

    They are quite fruity, in fact. The Committee cannot deny you.

    This makes perfect sense from the perspective of the canon of St. Douglas.

    Wasn't really responding to you so much as anticipating where this is going.
