Not quite. If being a homosexual really IS a choice one can make, then
the argument that they can (and should) change their orientation is a
strong and valid one. Imagine a world where heterosexuality is found in
100% of all people. Such a world would be, I think, seen as "better" than
the world we live in by most people, including some homosexuals.

If it is NOT a choice, that argument is considerably weakened.
