Opposite sex attraction can be sinful

With the statement on pornography Create in Me, a Clean Heart by the USCCB and the new Exhortation Amoris Laetitia by Pope Francis, the harm pornography addiction had brought to marriage is coming to the forefront of Catholic teaching on human sexuality. Custody of the eyes and control of our subconcious attractions is a struggle of every human male on the planet, especially in our society where pornography is so common.

Opposite sex attraction when it is outside of marriage can, and often is, sinful. Entertaining a use of sex not ordered and not ordained to procreation can lead to all sorts of trouble- it's a major cause of everything from abuse to divorce to impotence.

In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in sins against Chastity- heterosexuality gets 97 paragraphs and homosexuality gets only 3.

So I have to as the question- if opposite sex attraction can be so sinful, and can lead to such destruction, why is it that Side B Christians claim that same sex attraction is never sinful? Why are they special snowflakes that attraction does not lead to destruction?
