Do you think being gay is a choice (yes) or genetic makeup (no)?

  • I definitely think sexual orientation is a choice.

    I have known many people who believed that they were gay or lesbian then changed their mind and said they were bisexual or heterosexual. Mammal's will always prefer their opposite gender even if they occasionally engage in sexual act's with their own gender. However this doesn't mean that people shouldn't have the freedom to choose. Gay people should have all the same rights as straight people do.

  • Yes it is a choice- kind of

    I believe that sexual orientation is bullshit, but I do believe that homosexuality is a fetish. That's right- not an orientation. If it was an orientation, then there would be actual evidence, but there isn't evidence. There is evidence that homosexuality is a fetish, as the way they act leads me to believe that it's a fetish that has gone too far

  • It is a choice to be gay

    1. There's no scientific evidence to prove being gay is genetic, other factors must come into play.
    2. I have heard about a gay person, brandon ambrosini of bbc future, who clearly said he's gay but wasn't born that way and has had relationship with the opposite sex and has fallen in love with one before, and also Cynthia nixon who has also acknowledged that her being gay was a choice.
    3. Also we can't just conclude that we are what we are just because of one gene, it just doesn't make sense. Genes are like a pack of cards handed down to you, but what you do with it is totally up to you.
    4. There are instances where people go to jail straight and come out gay.

  • No concrete evidence

    There is no SOLID evidence that claims homosexuality is genetic. Many of the claims are just hypothetical ideas that scientists cannot completely explain. So when I say that being homosexual is a choice, I mean that it cannot be biological. It's absurd to not think its a choice since some people do actually choose to be gay.

  • Being Gay is A choice

    It is my opinion that being gay is ultimately a choice that people make. While I do believe in the notion that there is some predisposition to being gay, the choice of following through or rejecting homosexual behavior lies with each man and woman. Being gay is defined by the act, and not by the label.

  • I've been gay my whole life

    I grew up in a christian family, went to a Christian school; everyone in my world would have hated me if they know. Let me say i love God. But I've never had any sexual interest in females; NEVER! And i spent alot of my life trying to change & hating my self.But i couldn't change me, and i finally realize i dont want to change; im gay and i like being gay. But if i was straight there would be know way i would have woke up 1 day and decided i want to be gay. In my world thats stupid, lets be someone how. Will be hated by everyone i know. I was born gay, I've never had a sexual thought towards a women. I only had sexual desires and attraction for guys my whole life. And now im so happy im gay, i love what it brings to me

  • I have spoken with actual gay people and they didn't choose it.

    No one chooses to be a heterosexual, so why would one assume that it is a choice to be anything else. You don't choose to be anything, otherwise we would have a lot more bisexuals on the planet. It more than likely has something to do with the pregnancy and their environment, and very little to do with choice or genetic predisposition.

  • It's definitely not a choice.

    When people say that being gay is a choice, I like to ask them when it was they chose to be straight. They usually stutter and sputter for a bit, then change the subject. You can not change or decide your sexual orientation. You get what you're born with, and that's it.

  • Being gay is not a choice.

    I honestly believe the being gay is not a choice. If being gay was a choice, then a straight man or woman could choose to be gay for a while and then go back to being straight right after to prove this point. No straight man would "go gay" just to prove that being gay is a choice. I believe that something inside a person is the reason for their sexual preference and that they cannot help the way they feel.

  • Homosexuality is a genetic thing.

    A lot of people do not seem to realize that homosexuality has been observed in at least 150 species of mammals. It is not just a human thing. Our closest relatives, the chimpanzee and bonobo, have been observed in homosexual acts. Every gay person I have ever spoken to knew they were gay from a young age, as well; far before puberty.

  • Not A Choice

    Being a heterosexual person myself I have no way to know the answer of this question from a personal viewpoint. My understanding of this situation from those that do identify as homosexual is that it is not a choice. They didn't simply decide one day to be gay, they feel they were born that way.
