Well my personal problems (unrelated to sexuality) usually make it hard for people to function normally in society, so they're big problems (one's that I'll always have), I've just worked hard on overcoming them. I do occasionally have homosexual desires, but it's never been anything major nor something I've ever acted on *shrugs*If they're not all that big, why would they control you over your predominating heterosexual or neutral proclivities? Furthermore, why should you work on overcoming the homosexual ones in particular? The heterosexual inclinations have a much better chance of ruling you, and if it's truly homosexual attributes you're worried about, they're an unchanging part of you. The only way they could be changed is if they turned out to instead be fetishes, or you were tortured/had brain surgery to try and remove those inclinations.
The reason that a person would want to work out homosexual attributes outside of biblical principals is non-existent. In fact, I completely understand why people don't see it as an issue outside the bible. However, within the bible a person would want to work them out for obvious reasons. In the same way, there are plenty of heterosexual issues people may have to work out too (sleeping around, etc.)
