There is a long-running debate about whether homosexuals can “change” their basic sexual identity. I have no idea. I assume that a motivated homosexual can subordinate his identity. People fight their biological urges all the time. Whether that person is truly “changed” is another matter. Perhaps it’s just a linguistics thing: “subordinate” does or does not equal “change”.
The above are just my idle thoughts, and I really have no interest in pursuing them now. What did interest me this morning was a New York Times online squiblet:
Isn’t that perfect? “Experts” say gays can’t change, and they do so despite the actual evidence of men who claim to have changed (or maybe just subordinated their homosexual desires). There it is, in one paragraph: Thousands of men assert that they have changed — and experts claim that they’re lying because their claims run counter to theory.
You should read the whole article, which expands upon the apt summing up in that little paragraph.
