Homosexuals are born gay.
Gay is a choice.
We can't choose what floats our boats.
Given how sh*tty gays are treated in this country and have been treated in this country... Why would anyone ever CHOOSE to be gay if they even were able to choose in the first place?
Everyone knows this. Why are you asking this question?
I don't exactly think that they are born that way. I think that the 'nature vs. nuture' concept really plays into it. I would be curious to find out if children who were never even exposed to the concept of homosexuality would identify themselves as gay when they get older.... But, regardless, whether it's nature or nurture, who cares? How does what one person does in their bedroom affect you? Oh right, it doesn't!
If you truly are gay and the idea of having sex with your opposite gender repulses you then you must have been born that way because I could never be gay just the idea makes my skin crawl.
We can all say what we want. Look at society. Most people are followers of "what's hip" or the norm. If gay was a choice, gay people would have turned straight a long time ago and there would be no conflict. Plain. Simple. Done
What are the steps to become gay?
You may not choose to want to have sex with men but you choose to have sex, otherwise its rape.
Of course it's a choice, what else would it be, an involuntary spasm?
In 2003, we sequenced the entire human genome. Not one single gene was found that renders a romantic preference in humans. See, there really only are two ways a gene can exist: dominant or recessive. If being gay were a dominant gene, then gay people would grow up, be unable to reproduce, and thus not pass on their genes, while straight people would, thus making homosexuality genetically extinct within the first generation of a species. If being gay were recessive, like blue eyes, for example, it could be passed on in theory, but then we would expect the trait to become less and less common down the generations, which contradicts what we see. If romantic preference is not dictated by dominant genes, and it's not dictated by recessive genes, then by definition it cannot be inherent in a person from birth, which is exactly what we found when we sequenced the entire human genome back in 2003. Thank you.
You have to look deeply into biology for a correct answer, something we do not possess the technology for. This leaves us all to personal oppinion. I've deided in our limited knowledge of the human mind it is a choice. And that shouldn't be offensive in the least. To say it's a bad choice, or a sin can be taken as offensive, but not simply thating it's a choice.
This is almost a false dichotomy as there is probably some middle ground. Saying it's genetic though isn't questionable to say the least. -Identical twins, where one is gay, almost always sees the other as straight. -It's unreasonable to say something is genetic when you are engaging in behaviors that do not allow you to pass your genes down to a next in kin!
the blame points to the parents and society. do you let your son play barbie? do you differentiate to your son what are for girls and what are for boys? does your father have ball-time with you? do you watch transformers or carebears? yes, of course, it is a choice. there are people who thinks they are vampires. are they really vampires or are they just retarded? why are they forcing to be blood suckers when the reality is theyre numskulls. same thing. when u try to be what you aren't.. that's not normal.
