I guess what I'm trying to get across is that sexual orientation is a Western term. And as I said before other cultures don't understand it because it doesn't exist to them. I understand that our attraction to others of course has some biological factors however the term 'sexual orientation' is not used by all of the world. Like the term homosexual, bisexual,heterosexual etc.
As for the ex-gay research, I only want to gain understanding of everyone's opinion. I am not trying to be biased. Maybe I should have mentioned earlier that this is what I have come across I've found so far. I still have a stack of books (both for and against ex-gays, and reperative therapy as well as those in between) to go through.Everyone has a voice on this situation, so I'm trying to find my own. I am all for genderqueer expression, and loving who your heart desires. As I've told others before one day i would like to be Legendary. I want to change the world. And in order for me to do that I have to first open up both my heart and mind and here everyone's stories. Because if I limit myself to only one side I'm no better than everyone else.
I am aware what science has shown. But science has many faces. It all depends who's involved. But as I said my research isn't complete. I'm not solely focusing on ex-gay research i am always exploring the idea of human expression (in which ex-gay in nothing but a small portion of).
I came here not only to speak about my ideals but also to get advice on what I can do to help me find peace with myself and God, because I am aware that i am not alone in this. Please understand I mean no harm, I just have a curious soul and seek knowledge wherever I feel I need it.
