Would you still change if you could?

    I'm pretty sure this kind of topic has been discussed here before, but I was wondering, if something was developed that could magically re-wire your brain and make you straight, would you do it, or are you so used to be being gay you wouldn't want to change?

    As for myself, part of me would want to change just to get a huge burden off my back (life is a lot easier being straight), and the other part of me has just been so used to it I couldn't imagine not being attracted to men. It's hard to explain but I like being attracted to men, but I don't like everything bad that goes with it. I just couldn't imagine suddenly having an attraction for women.

    This is all just wishful thinking isn't it? We don't get this option at all. But it doesn't hurt to share?

    Straight men have their issues as well. I've seen gay men without issues, usually those men are the more lax type with very good genes, and nice bodys. I call those the heart-breakers. haha

    You seem like a guy that's been hurt. Just keep at it one day at a time. No reason to change or deny who you are.

    And as for the question. No, I would not.

    I can get used to rush hour traffic for a job I might otherwise enjoy, but I'll never like that part of it even as used to it as I might get.

    I so often see people treating others terribly and so I've become quite used to that though I'll never like it. But when I see someone treating someone kindly, even though I might not be as used to that, on first sight, I fucking love it.

    My loving a thing isn't dependent upon what I am used to. Being gay isn't an acquired taste.

    When I accept and love who I am, while that has to do with being familiar with myself--nice to know familiarity doesn't always breed contempt--it has nothing to do with something I simply got used to.

    Being gay isn't me being gay. It is me being.
