I imagine that having this pill supposes it's opposite effect as well.  I
think it is also interesting to question what happens when orientation is a
mood easily altered with a pill.  Maybe it sounds far-fetched, but if it
were 'safe' enough - I could see it in candy.  An effective dose is the
entire package - much like the latest fad of caffeine added to gum or mints.

A scarier consideration is what happens when the "gay is immoral" group (for
lack of a better term that isn't too broad-brush) realizes that they can
'fix' homosexuals with ongoing drug therapy.  Again, it sounds rediculous -
but there are a lot of prescriptions filled every day to 'fix' ADD too.
