Book Review -- Bias Incident: The World's Most Politically Incorrect Novel

Bias Incident: The World's Most Politically Incorrect Novel.  It deals with a college student who gets in trouble for writing the world's most politically incorrect college essay.  His topic:  can a person with homosexual tendencies have a happy life if he gets married and has a family?

It tackles the issue in a fairly off-beat manner: by asserting that stoicism is a great virtue, that the human being is very resilient and adaptable  and by showing that psychology has shown that human beings are pretty bad at predicting how events in their lives will affect their happiness.  Since this is the case, it is hard to predict a person's happiness in that situation (despite the fondness for gay rights people for saying that such a situation would almost invariably lead to misery, depression and suicide) and that some people can be very happy if they overcome their desires that conflict with their religious beliefs (even assuming those desires are left intact).
