"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.

I feel like it depends on how you were raised, and then how you choose to experiment-or not. I was a shitty little homophobe as a kid, and was straight as heck. then my friend told me he was gay, and we were so close that I couldn't drop him for anything. I started learning more about it, and I became open to looking at girls as potential romantic relationships. I learned I liked both girls and guys. It wasn't exactly a choice, but it was definitely not how I was born. I think its more about when you choose to look at things differently and try it out.

Yee! You cannot change or choose your sexuality, but you can choose whether or not to follow your heart. Like, a gay male/female can take a beard/dress to hide their sexuality.

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.

And empirically false.

Nobody's saying that straight people aren't cool for being gay.  If they are, they're either be facetious, or they support gay rights for the wrong reasons.

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.
