A quote I just don't understand from Research paper claims gay people can be 'straightened out'

A spokesperson for the gay rights campaigning group Stonewall said: 'This is dangerous, sinister, nonsense, there's no evidence that gay people can be 'cured' as if it's some kind of illness.

'We're in favour of free speech. I don't think we would say repress it, but we would say it was flawed and flimsy research. It would be interesting to see research on whether straight people can be made to be gay.'

Ok so why is research showing gays can become strait sinister, but research that would show straits can go gay would be interesting? Wouldn't that just show that human sexuallity is more mutable than we like to admit? Just wondering.

- Peace
