I would agree with that. Until 1973, Homosexuality was listed as a mental illness. It was removed from the medical textbooks for purely political and idealistic reasons. There is no scientific evidence, that I'm aware of, that states homosexuality is anything but a mental disorder.

Even if it is a mental disorder that they are born with, then I would liken it to schizophrenia. An illness that can be treated, but also one that you are going to have for the rest of your life. However, no one would ever try to claim that there is nothing wrong with a schizophrenic and that they are brave for accepting their schizophrenia and that doctors are bigots for trying to treat them. That just wouldn't be logical.
