Homosexual: Homosexuality refers to a sexual attraction or romantic relationship between individuals of the same sex. It is an inherent aspect of one's identity and not a choice or behavior that can be changed or controlled.
Conversion Therapy: Conversion therapy is the practice of attempting to change an individual's sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression to align with heterosexual and cisgender norms

3:1) Definition includes homosexuality and underage homosexualityNothing in this definition tells us that those individuals are adults. They could be two 12 year-olds. Or worse, they could be a 30 year-old and a 12 year-old engaging in romantic relationship.
It makes it worse, because the relationship is homosexual, as opposed to normal unity between male and female which results in offspring. Since homosexual relationship doesnt result in offspring, we shouldnt encourage homosexual relationships
We should discourage them to prevent children from being exposed to them.
The results show that children who are exposed to deviations are more suicidal and depressed than children who live a normal life in traditional values that teach the unity between male and female.
3:2) Homosexuality is bad for society
We saw this happen in USA, UK, Japan, South Korea and in every country after it started encouraging homosexuality. Allowing homosexuality has no positive effects on population, but it has plenty of negative effects.
Even Afghanistan has 3 times lower suicide rate than USA, and 3 times higher birth rates than USA.The rate of suicide in Afganistan is 4 per 100,000.The rate of suicide in USA is 13 per 100,000
Mental illnesses in USA are on the rise as justifying homosexuality leads to justifying LGBT, that leads to justifying the castration of 14 year-olds through hormones injections, along with lying to 4 year-olds that they can change sex.
3:3) Justifying homosexuality justifies pedophilia
My opponent has given the definition of homosexuality that includes underage persons.
In fact, societies that punish homosexuality and allow child marriages have lower suicide rates than societies that allow homosexuality and punish child marriages.
By this objective standard, homosexuality is worse than pedophilia as it causes much more deaths.
3:4) Conversion therapy would discourage homosexuality and help protect children
After we have seen that homosexuality as defined by my opponent causes harm to society and to children, one thing we can do to discourage it is by doing forced conversion therapy. That would send a clear message that homosexuals will be punished if they act on their urges. Anyone saying "homosexuality is good" would be labeled as homosexual and he would be punished with forced conversion therapy.
4) ConclusionWe have seen that homosexuality has no positive effects on population. We have seen that homosexuality is bad for society, that it includes underage relationships and that it justifies pedophilia. We have seen that even very poor countries that punish homosexuality have less suicides and higher birth rates than countries that encourage homosexuality. We have seen that forced conversion therapy would punish homosexuality and that would help society.
