>From Fallwell.com: "Not a single mainstream psychological, psychiatric or
medical organization believes that changing one's sexual orientation is


I'm not sure how helpful this sort of claim is, in part due to what seems
like an implied over-simplification of the issues. Compare, for example,
what the likely percentage of successfully heterosexual males were in 1930
in America with the percentage of successfully homosexual males in Sparta
500 B.C.  Human sexuality is a wildly complex and mysterious phenomenon that
is organically connected to physiology (that is the product of both 'nurture
and nature') as well as broad cultural context and moral experience of the
individual.  Apparently entire civilizations can to some degree 'change
sexual orientation,' which is what I took Ed's argument to be.  In Sparta,
the men typically wanted to settle down with women and have children when
they were older, but this did not stop institutionalized homosexuality the
permeated the sexual experience of Spartan men.  Given the way our culture
is going, perhaps 40 years from now 60% of all men will be somewhat
bi-sexual within their overall sexual experience.  If that was to happen,
how would we even make sense out of the analysis above from Fallwell.com?
Almost all Spartan men changed their sexual orientation at some point in
their life. Or am I missing something?
