    If you could become straight would you welcome it?

    But it doesn't seem to work that way. So I am what I am.

    A most emphatic NO! I pretended to be straight for most of my life and had unlimited "access" to the straight world and its inhabitants ways and ways of thinking. Never would I want to be part of that hypocritical, sexually repressed, judgemental, dogmatic, uptight world again. Yes, I know that its wrong to lump everyone in a group into the same pile, but having been there and now being here, I prefer here.

    Absolutely! I wouldn't be single for long. Girls LOVE me. Gay guys not so much. Hell, even straight guys like me more than gay guys. They usually want to "experiment" with me or are telling me if they were gay they'd go after me.

    I think it's easier to be straight.. I'm happy with who I am now though, so I don't think I'd want to change..

    I actually like the fact that I'm different. Being gay also helped me be more open minded towards other issues.

    I would say no because I'd miss looking at hot guys, but i'd say yes also because it appears that life would be easier, but then I was married and hated it, so I am who I am for a reason....

    I think it's easy for people to say No when they know that being gay is a permanent position, but let's be real and honest.

    Most who find out they are gay, their whole life is questioned. Their future, their afterlife...the jobs, kids, soulmate aspect is all questioned,

    Dealing with society, and economic, and coming out issues.

    I think anyone who would say No is in utter denial and foolish.

    I promise I am not trying to be rude
    but in a society where you cannot get married in most parts, and homophobic bullying is crazy high. People get condemned and the world and laws are based off religion. To say if you could be straight and chose not to is to say that you like being the outcast, the odd one, the under dog.

    It's easy to say because we know we would never change truly, but if we could...who would chose to be gay in this world.

    I think most gay people learn to deal and accept but being gay is a lifetime of diffcult choices and deep thoughts. its more than just sexuality.

    Now some say No because they can't imagine themselves changing and being someone else or with someone else, but I still think if a "Cure" or "Gene Reversal" Came out..people would pay buckets for it.

    Sounds so sick, and wrong and sad beyond belief but check out those Sexuality Conversion Camps and Gay Exorcisms...

    Its...sad but I think the majority would be straight if they could...just for a simpler life if nothing else.

    That's just my take on it.
    Sorry if I offended or made anyone upset. Not my goal.

    No.

    Sure you could be straight but life is still hard regardless if you're gay or straight.

    Besides if "easy" were what I were looking for in life I can assure you there's a long list of choices I could change before that. Fuck easy. I'm shooting for awesome. icon_razz.gif

    Not in a million years. Highschool was tough at times, but I'm in a completely happy place now, and wouldn't change!

    I'd say yes. Like someone else said, I probably wouldn't be still single today if I were straight. Then again, i'd probably feel differently if I were happily partnered.

    At one point in my life, early on, when I didn't know how to cope and I was still purging institutional/religious homophobia, I would have said yes.

    Having been through that crucible, and seeing how being challenged by some adversity strengthened me, the answer is
    an emphatic "NO!"

    JamieJfromtheA saidI think its easy to say NO

    [sappy, self-pitying drivel and douchebag blanket statements]


    You are wrong. Period.

    At least speak only for yourself.

    Great question and the answer is absolutely yes. Like others have said, it really doesn't work that way, does it?

    Maybe because I havent experienced the positives of being a gay male yet (an actual decent relationship, acceptance from my family and friends, feeling comfortable with who I am, etc.) I havent learned to embrace it as a good thing, and as a result, the chance to be straight seems like a great solution.

    ... but hey, I have had to work for everything I ever had in my life, and its never been easy, so naturally, I wouldnt be used to something if I was handed it on a silver platter. Nonetheless, things do seem like they would be so much easier if I was straight.
