"Most straight parents want straight kids, who would want their kids to face the bullying and harassment ? A cure would certainly be popular."
I wouldn't /want/ my kid to be gay, any more than I`d /want/ my kid to be a girl. Basically, I don`t care whether they`re gay or not. A "cure" would be atrocious because you`re changing how your kid was born, possibly without their consent. All for the sake of no bullying? How about we continue to try to change the beliefs of homophobes and then maybe bullying will be lessened. Nearly everyone I know, gay or not, has been bullied for some reason or another. "Curing" gay people wouldn`t stop that. It`d breed further hatred toward gay people though, thinking they`re too poor or stupid or something to be "cured". It`d give more "arguments" for why they don`t deserve equal rights, too.

!crakrjak kids get teased for having red hair or being too short. Just because we know the genes that encode these traits doesn't mean we are going to try and "cure" them. Your constant insinuation of homosexuality as a disease just proves your own bigotry and lack of knowledge on the subject.
