I would disagree with that. Homosexuals are much more likely to suffer from depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, and attempt suicide than heterosexuals. Even in countries where gays are almost completely accepted as normal and allowed to marry.

But, it's not only destructive to them, it's destructive to society as a whole.

Well, if a doctor wants to continue to practice medicine, then he or she will keep their opinions about homosexuality to themselves. Why do you think that psychologists stopped treating homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973? Was it because of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary? No, it was because they would lose their license if they failed to conform to the political pressure.
