"Cure"

About 40 years ago, a light went on over my head. Some shrink was talking about "curing homosexuals," and I finally thought to ask the next question: of what?

I have just been reminded of those quaint old precivilized days, by an article on how snorting oxytocin* can make people more outgoing. It concluded, "More research will clearly be needed before people would be prescribed oxytocin for introversion." Cure me of what?

*Thanx to The Agitator, Radley Balko, who offered the helpful reminder "That’s tocin, not contin"
