Also, for the sake of how I am to discuss this in my ethics class, let's say the procedure is not reversible: meaning a straight person cannot be made gay. Just for the sake of how I wish to discuss the ethics behind it.

It seems like everybody is moving forward. As if there is some final goal they can achieve and get to. I don't get it though. When I look around, it seems like I'm already there, and there is nothing left to do.

I wish I could take just one hour of what I experience out in nature, wrap it in a box, put a bow on it, and start handing out to people
