    There's the Kinsey Scale, which places people on a spectrum. One end they are totally gay, and on the other end they are totally straight. The theory is that most people, including perhaps your uncle, fall somewhere in the middle.

    I see you edited your post.

    In response to your last sentence, far be it from me to say that people aren't socially groomed into homosexuality; I will say that it is not the case for me.

    Definitely this, with regards to sexual preference and even personality.

    " I don't think people are born gay at all. I DONT MEAN TO MAKE A DEBATE ABOUT IT. "

    ...but you posted it on a forum as a topic, making it subject to debate and speculation. icon_wink.gif

    The idea that people are not born gay and can be coerced into being gay through traumatic experiences such as being raped is exactly what the religious Right want to hear so they can pass laws against you.

    I have a relative who was sexually assaulted by an older boy when he was young. No gay. Straight and married and happy as it gets.

    Your Mom's Uncle went on to a straight relationship, and in spite of rape (your Mom's perspective) enjoyed his gay experiences. Logic would dictate rape would turn him off men, not on.

    Very likely he's Bi. See above posts for the different degrees of Bi.

    Yes, there are two kinds of gay.

    One kind of gay means you are aesthetically and emotionally attracted to the same gender.

    One kind of gay means you are happy.

    Sexuality is more complicated than simply genetics or experience.

    Being raped doesn't make you homosexual.
    Otherwise, every woman who had ever been raped would have become a dyke.

    It's amazing to me how many gay men have gone down the path of a straight marriage, only to be miserable, and, sooner or later, end the marriage because they were living a lie, and couldn't stand it any longer.

    I wonder how happy your mother's uncle is.
    Some people are able to make their choice (your mother's uncle getting married and having a family, for instance) and live with it, and be reasonably happy.

    I was born gay.

    This. Sexuality is something that is very complicated, It's like a spider web that is very intricate. I don't think that people are born gay or straight, but mostly bisexual.

    Stop being concern about the religious right.
