I don't believe being heterosexual is a choice. I don't think people wake up one day and say to themselves..."I think I am going to be straight today."

No heterosexuality is not a choice. It is what our species is naturally inclined towards. A man has a penis, and a woman has a vagina. Procreation takes place between men and women. The vast, vast majority of the world is heterosexual. However, just like there is sickness, there is mental disease, deviations. Such as homosexuality and pedophilia.

One, only men and women can procreate.

Two, the vast majority of mankind is heterosexual.

Three, our biology is naturally built for heterosexuality.

Four, many things can nurture us in ways that bring about deviation, even natural things, but those deviations are not in line with the first three points.

Therefore heterosexuality is natural and a given.

The perversion of heterosexuality lies in its sensory psychophysics. Sexual arousal with body limbs that do not have the same form, function,and composition is a sensory perversion regardless of whether it leads to reproduction or not. If you can't distinguish the difference between sexual arousal with extraneous body parts,sexuality,copulation/insemination and parenting guess what, homosexuals do it very well.Homosexuals can experience the same sensory mechanism with or without the opposite sex and even without their own as well, in the hypothetical case of being completely isolated, a sensory faculty that those inclined to sexual arousal with non physiological body parts lack . Therefore the sensory psycho-physical and biophysical properties of the neural mechanism of homosexuality in many different computational and mathematical models as detected by FMRI, and other statistical techniques such as multidimensional scaling is extremely well establish, therefore heterosexuality is an inferior form of sensory development since it mirrors the neural processes related to homosexuality, this is why homosexuals partners both have the same sexuality,the same physical sensations and functions including that of copulation. Heterosexuality is an effeminacy of maleness and masculinity due to the heavy sensory stimulation with a whole bunch of body parts that you do not have in your body and that leads males to basically become used to feel feminine body parts as if they were born with them as well,this effeminacy becomes second nature to them. Heterosexual males use non reproductive body parts that they are basically nonsensitive to such us breasts among other body limbs that they borrow from the opposite sexual group;they have sex with menstruating females and pregnant ones. Heterosexual couples have their bodies so physically dichotomous that it is often sick to even stare at the repulsive amount of sexual dimorphism that they exhibit. Please prove to me that sexual arousal

What does this have to do with God?

Given the perfect being discussed is God:

To claim to know whether or not God exists is an extremely arrogant notion on the part of humanity. From the scientific perspective, it is a hypothesis that can never be tested nor is it a theory that can ever be observed. To claim otherwise would be to circumvent the scientific method and ignore the process by which all scientific knowledge has been established. From the religious and/or spiritual perspective, think that we could possibly see or much less understand the intentions, mind, or even the mere idea of God is in itself heresy. If God does exist, and God created everything in existence, to fully understand God would be infinitely beyond our comprehension. Take sub intelligent life form that exists in our world as an example (rodent, lizard, bacteria, or a virus). Would any of these life forms be able to understand the intricacies of language, self consciousness, and self realization/actualization? Would they ever understand the idea of partial differential equations? the nuanced language and double entendre of Shakespeare? or the dialectic method? The obvious answer to all of these questions is a deep and resounding NO. Our understanding and intelligence is orders of magnitude beyond what any of these life forms could even come close to after generations of evolution. Similarly, who are we, as mere humans to believe that we can even begin to understand God, the master and creator of the universe? The one and only way to possibly understand God is to create a universe of our own, including all matter and life therein. So in effect, there is no way to know, which makes both the contention of a theist and an atheist contradictory to their stance. A theist could not possibly understand God, an atheist could not possibly prove (by testing and/or observation) whether God existed or not.
