Homosexuality is not a choice
KyleSays

Con

Homosexuality is a choice made by people just like how you chose who you want to date. You have no obligations to be homosexual and you could be straight if you want.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

All sexual orientations are determined by a complex interaction of traits, with no single gene acting as the "signal" for whether you like members of the same sex, members of the opposite sex, or both. Therefore, essentially your environment plays a role in deciding what sex(es) you end up being attracted too. For example, lets say I'm a gay male, I can choose to date, have sex, etc. with women (doesn't mean I'll like it) but, nonetheless I can choose to do it. On the other hand, I can't choose to be attracted to them because I'm gay, no matter how hard I try, I can't choose to be unattracted to men.
