    I don't think I've ever chosen to be straight...maybe once i realized I liked dick there was this reaction and I tried to ignore it for awhile .


    I've honestly gone back and forth, back and forth.

    I've actually never liked that come back. At some point, prepuberty, we were all unaware of our sexuality, and while there was no choosing, the idea that we have all known our sexuality from birth is inaccurate.

    One person answered that it was mixture of nature and nurture, and the interviewer "countered" with asking when she decided to be straight. She answered that she didn't and I got the feeling that the interviewer got a sensation of "I sure shut her up". Without taking sides in this debate that reoccurs, how is nurture a choice for an individual? Sure it's a variable that might change but for the single individual who is brought up in an environment I think choice is very much absent to almost the same degree as nature.

    Does she constantly remind you that you're going to hell and that she prays for you to change every day? icon_lol.gif

    I love this question because it's a quick way to make those that think it's a choice realize there was no choosing.

    I tried as I'm sure we all have. I dated a girl in high school and it wasn't bad. And at times the thought of doing that again makes me feel unnerved.

    I find women to be very beautiful and have no problem admiring a good-looking woman, but I've always found men good-looking not to mention sexually attractive and arousing. A man's penis does things for men a woman's vagina doesn't; it's as simple as that. Yay!

    I actually had to use this argument on my parents when their response to me telling them I'm gay was "this isn't something I want you to choose for yourself." When I asked them when they chose to be straight, they were quite speechless.

    ...HahahahaHaha.... I remember being asked these questions once on the campus of my Alma Mater - I think it was Coming Out day & I guess the guy got me twisted for straight... So I told him that, the way I saw it, it depended on what the word 'gay' - as used in his questions - was referring to: If he meant 'gay' as in 'innate sexual attractions', then my answer was no... If he meant it as 'patterns of sexual activities' - more specifically in the case of closeted LGB folks -, then my answer was 'yes' - one can perfectly decide & try NOT to be gay. And finally, if he meant 'gay' as 'sexual identity', then the answer was also 'yes' - one can choose to be out or remain closeted... That is, unless some third parties decide to do you a 'favor'...icon_confused.gificon_confused.gificon_eek.gif

    The guy just grinned and made some smart comments about me being out & proud....icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Thank you! I am being told I'm choosing this, that it is demonic and spiritual and that I'm turning my back on my family. That I'm choosing to be "gay" over "staying" with them. Funny these are the same people that told me at one time i needed to be brutally honest with myself and others as I had been unfaithful in the past many times. So now I choose to stop the lies and deceit...it was killing me... And to face this once and for all. Now these people, my family, wont speak to me.

    So now that I'm being honest it seems others in my life were happier when I lied. That is too bad. Because I am not good at lying and I am not that kind of person that I can lie like that.

    Oh I'm also told i had to have been molested or some thing like that as a child and I just don't know it. That is why I am "that way". So. It seems people don't want to believe that we are what we are and i didn't choose this any more than i chose to have blue eyes.

    So I may have gotten a little too personal and wandered off topic. But it just goes to prove that most people still prefer we lie to ourselves and everyone else. It is hypocritical.

    Those who say we "choose" homosexuality irritate me. So, sexuality is supposed to be a "choice." When you ask these straights when they chose to be heterosexual, they have no answer. Their claim is that homosexuals choose, but they don't. Where is the logic in that? A Quaker group said that homosexuality is no more perverse than lefthandedness. 'Nuff said.
