Is there any modern psychology studies that help with homosexual adaptation/rectification?

I know alot of prople will take that as an insult but its only meant as an opinion and raising a point of view.

The 70s Research based on which homosexuality was taken off the DSM only proved that homosexual men are not crazy but didnt prove against it being a psychological/behavioral problem. Then few atheist homosexual psychologists decided that being accepted as gay is the right way and forced it to be taken off the DSM. 

The fact that being homosexual was considered a mental illness that affects person's sanity was a disgrace..but not being a psychological problem is also unfair. People with narcissist ot psychopathic personality traits are usually high functioning and treated with respect, but psychology still categorize them as personality disorders and there is alot of ongoing research to support and rectify them.

Just because psychological science in the 70s failed to identify a healthy way to correct homosexuality then decided to give up on it idls unfair to every gay individual in this world. 

Its almost impossible to find any modern psychological work that is still happening that can help to convert homosexuality rather than just accept it. Anybody aware of a different input to that?

    Your point of view is wrong, people are born that way, they don't wake up as teenagers and think oh I will be gay someday, it is not a choice so no there is no rectification.  Psychologists know this and this may be why they don't waist their time with trying to change someone who is homosexual they simply help them to deal with a biased population who can't understand that we are not created equal.

    No, because there is nothing to "rectify".

    A percentage of the population not getting sexual with the other sexe is not a problem

    I guess nobody is interested. The people who want to force homosexuals to become straight are widely seen as mentally ill themselves. The people who have the resources to investigate are not of the opinion that homosexuality is a problem that needs to be solved. Homosexuals and infertile heterosexuals play a part in the population control. Same as in the animal kingdom.
