The question is passive aggressive. It is simply building up the gay community and victimizing it either for sympathy or idiotic perversion, I can't tell. Should people be ridiculed? Why the hell not? There is no reason for a gay human to be any more undeserving of ridicule then the not gay human.
People in every aspect of their life base choices on things they believe. For this reason it is evident that choices are subjective. For example someone can believe the Bible is true and think the world is 6000 years old. Thats a choice to believe that, and it is subjective as the evidence it is based on is probably the only evidence the person has ever seen.
