I'm gonna be honest, I stopped to think, but I'd say no
Chiroptera summed up what I wanted to say perfectly.
100% agree. was gonna write this word for word, lol
No, I'm proud of who I am and I wouldn't change that even though it can be hard at times.
No. I would like to erase homophobes, but I'm sure everybody here agrees on that one.
Nah I love who I am and besides I also love the diversity we have nowadays.
I personally see no point in removing different sexualities or identities even if I could.
However, I would certainly choose to erase homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, etc. We shouldn't change ourselves to suit the ideals of others. Other people should change their views of us, or otherwise mind their own business.
Well it depends because if I removed it I'd be removing a natural population control, but negative things such as homophobia would go away. Though I'd be getting rid of a variation that occurs naturally in humans and animals, and it'd be one that on it's own isn't inherently harmful to the individual or the species as a whole. So really I would have to look all the positives of keeping it and all the negatives of keeping, and if the negatives outweigh the positives, then I'd most likely get rid of it. Though I'd keep it if the positives outweigh the negatives, which is currently how it seems.
No, I love being gay
LGBT related bigotry, yes. No doubt. But the embodiment of who we are, hell no. I'm proud of who I am and I wouldn't change if for the world.
Nope. It's natural and normal. But I'd erase hate and intolerance in a heartbeat.
No. The LGBT are so much more 'awake' than your average Joe.
I'd say no regardless, but why would removing homosexuality, transexuality etc., make the world a better place? I mean you could argue that no one would be subject to abuse because of their sexuality or gender identity, but therein does not lie the problem. Humanity easily lapses in to xenophobia, which leads to bigotry, which leads to discrimination, but by making everyone the same in any respect, nothing would challenge this tendency. Essentially nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I would erase the labels that come with sexual and gender orientation, for sure. Labels only divide us all.

Awake and I feel so much more alive than when I was still in hiding. I wouldn't give that up for anything.
Erase it? Like get rid of homosexuals and transpeople?? Or like "magically transform the world so that homosexuals and transpeople never existed?"
My answer to both questions would be no. The first is a no-brainer, but the second requires more thought.
First, I think the world needs *more* diversity of humans and not less.
But more importantly, we all face challenges in this world. If you weren't gay or trans, you would still have major problems...it's just that your biggest problems would be different in nature. And you know what you'd be posting? You'd be posting "I want your opinion: if you could erase <whatever your biggest problem is> would you do it?" The moment we stop facing challenge is the day we start dying. So no...don't go down the path of trying to *eliminate* or erase your challenges...instead, try to go down the path of embracing your challenges! Whether that means overcoming the challenge, or leaning into experiencing it, or mitigating it, or whatever. But you'll always have challenge, or you won't be here much longer.
If I ever had that kind of power I'd just make everyone bisexual.
No, it's part of evolution, we shouldn't be messing with it.
Diversity is our strength!
