"Sexuality is a choice? Okay... So when did you decide to be straight?"

Most scientists today agree that sexual orientation is the result of a combination of biological, hormonal, emotional, and environmental factors - meaning that there are many factors that contribute to a person's sexual orientation. Most agree that sexual orientation is not a choice, and it cannot be changed.

Still, some people claim that sexuality is a choice, and that homosexuals and bisexuals are simply choosing to sexually deviate from the 'norm' of heterosexuality.

:bulletpink: Why would people choose to be homosexual if they knew that their parents and family would disown them if they knew? This point by ~MinZki!:D
:bulletpurple: If sexuality is a choice, then when did you choose to become straight?
:bulletpink: If sexuality is a choice, why don't you choose to be gay? If it's so simple to change what sex you are sexually attracted to, flip the switch for a day and choose not to be attracted to members of the opposite sex. Only become aroused by members of the same sex. Seriously, do it! I'd like to know how that works out for you.

Point is, sexuality is not a choice, no more than our skin color is a choice, or our natural hair color. It's just a part of who we are, and people who claim they can change are just fooling themselves. That's all I've got to say for now on this topic.

Some people don't know what their sexuality is until they are more 'mature'. But, others might have that off feeling when they are younger. You can 'experiment' about with your sexuality, trying to find it (I'm going through that faze >.>) testing what sexuality you are is (and should be) completely normal, especially when your having those crazy weird thoughts in your head and you're panicking about your crush on the same sex as you (this is more normal than anyone says)

In which the human baseline is suddenly equivalent to a paraphilia.

Because IDENTITY POLITICS!




Also, the entire idea of "sexual identity", the view that sexual lust (or any desire) is somehow inalienable and deterministic to someone's being, is nothing more than pleading insanity.

I would like to add that being a certain orientation is also like having a disability XD You're born with it and as I far as I know you'll always have/be with that, so that's the one that I use. Just shows I'm 'broken' in more than one way haha.
But yes. I agree very much.

As I am very uneducated on this subject, my statement may be pointless. However, I will state it nonetheless.
I am heterosexual. I am straight because I am attracted to women and not men (As well as my Christian beliefs, but that's besides the point). Right? Right.
Homosexuals and bisexuals, on the other hand, are gay/lesbian/whatever because they are attracted to the same sex/both sexes for whatever reason.
And what of asexuals? They don't participate in sexual interactions because they don't fine pleasure or stimulation in it, as well as a lack of interest. It is their choice to be asexual.
I am on both sides of the argument, to be perfectly honest. I myself believe that it's a combination of biological factors, etc. AS WELL as a choice.

No, it's not their choice to be asexual. They're that way because they are. "You're just white because you chose to be white" would be the exact same logic as yours, and it too, would be incorrect; seeing as "Some people are black/straight/whatever because they are. Some people are Asian/bisexual/whatever because they are. BUT WHITE PEOPLE? THEY AREN'T BLACK OR ASIAN, SO THEY *CHOOSE* TO BE WHITE!"

No. They're white for the same reasons a black person is black, etc.

Okay, I just want to calmly correct one of your statements.
Asexuals just don't feel sexual attraction. Some asexuals do participate in sexual interactions, find pleasure and stimulation, and have interest. Some don't. A thing I've seen popularly used is, Action=/=Attraction. Meaning they can still be asexual if they have/had sex.
However, someone identifying with a label is a choice(Like, I'm ___ now.) but what they feel is not.

Sorry to bother you, sir, but this was just messing with me.

good point!
the bisexuality's always been in me but i didn't realize it until just this year.
i have kissed another girl before, but i was like 8 so i'm not sure if it counts ^^
either way, it shouldn't be called "homophobia" because they aren't scared.
they just choose to be jerks to anyone who doesn't love the same gender that they love.

The "phobia" in homophobia doesn't mean scared it means "extreme hatred or dislike".

I chose to be straight because I just don't see the point in being with other men. Plus it is forbidden and seen as a sin. Also, I think girls are pretty and guys.... yeah no. :l

And your point is actually controversial. There have been cases where former homosexuals are gay or lesbian for years, then suddenly realize they weren't. 

So really, it wouldn't be the same for everyone.

I figure that you just realized you're straight. Just like the people of other sexualities. ^ ^ Just a speculation, however. May or may not be true. ;p

There are people who wear sexualities as fads in their teenage years (not always teenagers, but I hope you get my point), and finally come out as heterosexual in the end because they can't handle their lie anymore. u v u Some people even lie about being straight to prevent backlash from society about their orientation. They raise families with the opposite sex, and hide their sexuality.

Not really a recommended choice for any LGBT+ person, since it can be mentally and emotionally harmful, but whatever floats their boat. c:

Plus, sexuality is a very fluid spectrum. In fact, very few bisexuals are 50 / 50 in terms of attraction. They can hold one gender or sex above the other, and prefer them over it's opposite. o v o It's pretty hard to call yourself completely lesbian or gay when you hold attraction to the opposite sex. Which may be where some of the confusion comes from, as some people believe that sexuality is just 'heterosexual-homosexual' when there is actually far more to human sexuality. c:

I hope this made sense. I'm on antibiotics right now, and I'm surprised I can even type with proper-ish English grammar. cx

I also didn't mean for this to come off as rude, if you read it that way. I don't mean it in a disrespectful way, as it's just my two cents on the matter. ; v ;

This is something that my mom can't seem to understand, she think that girls can choose their sexuality but guys can't. :/ I'm just like mom that doesn't make any sense. Even though her logic is messed up she's still fine with people being gay, bi, trans, etc.
