"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.

"You don't know your sexuality yet" nobody said to any straight teen ever

Straight pride xD

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.
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.

Thank you, that helps in understanding my mistake. 
TheTabbyCat1999 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
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.
ShadowDoodles9927 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Student General Artist
Thank you for explaining. Like I said, I'm not too educated on the subject of sexualities :XD: Your decision to correct me is completely valid. Again, thank you for clearing this up

I remember me talking about this with a group of friends, and someone in the toilets (we were just standing outside of them) who overheard us, came out and just started singing "I'm gonna be gay!"
Good times.
hyenacub Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Hobbyist
LOL!  That's random and amusing.
Infinity-Bacon Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Student Digital Artist
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.
NoxFeline Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Student General Artist
The "phobia" in homophobia doesn't mean scared it means "extreme hatred or dislike".

Okay to answer your question:

June 2013. :)
EnriqueArreguin777 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2014
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.
Adoptables-Hoe Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2014  New member Hobbyist Artist
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 ;
EnriqueArreguin777 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2014
I also noticed the fad thing going on, not to mention the curious minds that just wanted to experiment. lol
Adoptables-Hoe Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  New member Hobbyist Artist
Yeah, hehe. xD I don't mind experimenting, but calling yourself a sexuality because 'i wanna be like the c00l kids' is pretty dumb. cx

I agree, there's wiring and mindsets that make you homosexual. People may try to change that, church, parents, and friends. But honestly, you should be yourself.

when i chose to fall in love with a man
hyenacub Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Hobbyist
Did you really choose to fall in love with him?  Like you saw this dude and made a conscious chouice that you would fall in love with him?  I'm pretty sure that's not how it usually works....

No one has a choice in what sex they are attracted to.

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.
ChocolatePeachKitty Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014  Hobbyist
...I'm wondering where she got that logic from XD

AerialNavigation Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Blah thank you.  I'm asexual and some people try to claim my sexuality doesn't even exist.  :stare:  Like I just don't get any kind of sexual attraction.  It's not something I asked for though - not having it, that is.  Now, I'm 16, there's still time for it to change and I acknowledge that.  But at the moment, I lack the sexual urges that most kids my age seem to have.

Romantic orientation I would say is a bit different though.  To a certain point being panromantic was a choice after thinking for a while about how much gender just doesn't matter.  I'd considered myself heteroromantic until then but eventually just stopped and realized...I don't even give a fuck.

People don't comb out of the womb and say "Hey, I wanna be gay!"
KARKlTTY Featured By Owner Edited Aug 21, 2014  Student General Artist
Comb? :lol:
and by the way...
they don't. But it's something they realize through life. Such as, they look at someone who isn't of the opposite sex and think "I wanna kiss, etc. him/her/them"
XteySockies Featured By Owner Edited Aug 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Let me get this straight...
People can choose to be gay, tras, pan, bi, etc, yet I can't be straight? Wonderful. :icongo-on-plz:
Infinity-Bacon Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Student Digital Artist
no one ever said that. the stamp is just pointing out that no one chooses their sexuality.
if by your logic you say i chose to be bi, i'd ask you when you chose to be straight.
XteySockies Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, this is an old comment, and I'm no longer against gays. Sorry for offending you if I did.

Nah. If I fall for my neighbor's wife, that may not be my choice, but if I try to act on that, , THAT is my choice. And there is a moral component to any action, regardless of what the moral relativists keep trying to suggest. 

Basically, you're asking the wrong question.

Stamps like these remind of something my mother said to me a few weeks ago.

Me: When I have a kid, if I have a boy, I'm going to name him Luca.

Mom: I like the name Luca.

Sister: I like the name Luca, too.

Mom: He's probably going to grow up to be gay, though. Just so you know.

Sister: Yeah...

You don't grow up gay, and if you did, a name would certainly not be the cause of it happening.

My mother also say, when I talk to her about homosexuality, to "hate the sin, love the sinner".

You shouldn't hate the sin in the first place.

It doesn't physically harm you.

Back the truck up, bitches.

It would be nice if you could choose your sexuality. Because if you choose your sexuality I sure as hell wouldn't choose to be strait, gay, or bi. I would choose to be asexual.

Fuck kids.

Fuck relationships.

Fuck spending money on both.

Fuck all the drama that happens in relationships.

Fuck all the stress of raising/dealing with a child.
