    Even if it works, I don't want any. I doubt it does. Wonder how much they'll sell?

    Christ, next they'll be selling pills to make your dick bigger. I love that they call it "Behavioral Effeminism" and "Male Homosexuality Disorder"... what about all the lesbians?

    This is quite possibly the daftest thing I've ever seen:

    If this is actually real, it is produced by a company in India called "Shetty Pharmaceuticals" which actually produces homeopathic products (kinda ironic, huh?) I'm not certain, though, about its authenticity - the website claims it is a prescription drug, but nowhere on the site does it give information on the active ingredient(s), which would be required by any drug prescribed in the US.

    If it is truly a homeopathic, you have to understand what that means. Homeopathic treatments are based on the idea that tiny amounts of the substance you are having trouble with will cure you or ease your symptoms. For instance, to cure poison ivy, you are given tiny amounts of poison ivy extract. To cure sore throat, you are given tiny amounts of compounds that would ordinarily irritate the throat. It works in a very similar way to allergy injections from an MD. What I am curious about is what extracts they would give to defeminize you. I won't lose any sleep over this one.

    Now, now, hippyscum, you have to get with the program and be politically correct. We can't say "lesbian" anymore. It is now "vagitarian."

    And there's me thinking I was being politically correct by resisting the urge to use the term "rug-munchers".

    :+ LOL What a hoot. I've seen a few of these parody sites. I believe this is either someone just having fun or taking web site design class. But since www.hetracil.com is registered to TUCOWS Inc. which is a shareware distribution company I believe web design training is the answer. I see no reason to take offense. I think this is quite humorous and meant to be a satire on other "gay cures". It is very well done.

    Here's another one I found:

    Some member of LPSG has a signature that says something to the tune of: "If homosexuality is a disease, can I call into work sick?"

    According to this Pharmaceutical Company.....yes.

    Gee whiz....the nerve

    I think what the world really needs is a cure for homophobia. Even straight men suffer as a result of homophobia. We need to get rid of it once and for all! :bounce:

    Well said. Skinny, I'm glad you found this website, and even more glad you decided to stick around after your initial concerns!

    In fact, homeopathic drugs are usually 30X or more. (In other words, one part per 1000000000000000000000000000000.) Some go up to 200C, or one part per 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000. Hahnemann himself knew it'd be useless, but he still argued there was a 'vital force' in the medicine which reacted with the body's own 'vital force'.

    Question: How does one go about curing something that is neither a disease nor a disorder?

    One of my gay friends told me that the only cure for homosexuality that he knew of was a form of aversion therapy. According to him, the only thing that could cure him would be to be locked in a room with a dozen hot guys for a weekend, and not let out until he'd had sex with all of them. ;)

    Come to think of it, I feel ready to be cured of my heterosexuality... can someone lock me in a room with a dozen sexy women?

    That is about the most bigoted thing i have ever seen! Probably something put about by some fundamentalist Christians somewhere who actually believe that being gay is an illness. Most ridiculous thing i've ever seen!

    actually any homeopathist worth the title keeps remedies BELOW 30X (mine has never given me anything more than 10, for example) - any more and they're just provoking increasingly greater reactions with no long-term benefit. Hannemann has been pretty comprehensively discredited by now anyways.

    I still say you guys are over-reacting and this just a big joke. It's a satire on treating homosexulity as something that needs to be "cured".

    I think the cure for all sexual orientations is to destroy the urge for sex and sexual attraction. Maybe, even disable puberty. Be a child forever. Honestly, I don't really think we'll ever get rid of prejudices. The nineties were pretty cool I thought for being gay. The whole gay marriage debate ( how convenient that was for an issue during this past election ?) and Bush winning the election again, shows how far American prejudices are about gay people. Even though, I am gay. I never wanted to marry anybody--male or female. Personally, I am anti-marriage. I was with a guy for six years. The last few years we got on each other's nerves. Maybe it is a two males in one household thing. We evolved. I never want to feel like that again. It is hard getting used to someone for a long time like that to end up being single. I know I am not alone. In all honesty, I like being single now but it is different. Invisibleman :beer: :hi:

    Thanks Sorceror. Those are Next-To-Nothing Boxer Briefs by Jockey. My buddy BriBear suggested I take a hard pic in them and voila. Glad you like it. :evilgrin:
