Pro should attempt to arrive at the resolution:
Sexual Orientation is not a choice.

First round: Accepting, Rule requests
Second round: Presentation of Arguments.

Other than that free debate. Keep it respectful.

I accept the debate, and i have one rule request.

No religious sidings when discussing the debate. People are influenced by more than religion.

I will start the debate by simply proposing that 'Sexual Orientation' is a choice because loving is an action of the soul, and not only of the body. We are not slaves to our flesh, and we choose who to love. Because we are all human, and all endowed with the same rational soul, there is no reason to beleive that certain males just happen to be attracted to other males, and certain females happen to be attracted to certain females.

This is a very light argument, I am very open minded about this subject and I'm glad to hear what you think about it.

I think we should be good for equal number of posts. Sexual Orientation is not a choice because a person can not always choose who they are attracted to. Some people are so influenced at a young age that the choices are made for them before they can make them themselves. I have to gay uncles, and their children may be so influenced by that fact that they become gay.

I formally back out of this debate, for the reason of not being able to come up with a reasonable argument that I actually agree with. I believe it is a choice, but would have debated it anyway. However, I cannot find any reasonable evidence to support my side of the argument.

Keep in mind that the brain structure of a homosexual female is structured like that of a heterosexual male and a homosexual male's is structured like that of a heterosexual females.
