Stamp: Please tell me when by 8manderz8 Stamp: Please tell me when by 8manderz8
"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.

Exactly!!
I used this argument once, though, and the person just said "I did choose, and it was the right choice". 
I mean, it was on Instagram though, so I guess I should've expected stupidity.

If Sexuality WAS A Choice, I'd Be Bisexual Or Pansexual Right Now.

I totally feel for this stamp. Sexuality is something one is born with.
I honestly found it funny when I heard that there are therapists that can supposedly 'fix' one's sexuality.

I made the choice around 6 years old....cause I was a pretty screwed up kid, knew alot of stuff I shouldn't...

Everything a man does, he has a choice, I don't know what's it like with females or 'others', but as a man, you just gotta make a choice.

This is just my thought.

There are actually some people who used different sexualities as lables to make them "edgy" and "cool" so in a way there are still people who choose them. But again, there are also some real ones. (Like my two of my friends that I know)

In my opinion, physically humans have different gender for a reason. If one is to follow their instinct, they would of course, be "straight". It's like animals, we follow our instincts. There are some animals too that are different. Being gay is not wrong and it's not defying "instincts" Because well, the universe is.. "amazing"

I hope I don't offend anyone! I just want to give some ideas, so people could calm down about this. LGBT community is already having a hard time, and you can't fight hate with hate. :D

i'm pansexual myself, but i think it could be a choice. bc i could abstain from sex and deprave myself of sexual needs, and say i'm asexual. i chould choose to only like dicks and say i'm straight. i could also choose to only like vaginas and say i'm homo as hell. but i like both of them, and more, so i don't want to give that up. humans, imo, aren't born w/ sexualities. if you grew up in a different time period or society, you might think otherwise, tbh.

I once heard that a renowned lesbian actually became straight :lol: Not only that, i also heard a married man with 2 kids actually became gay.

So yeah, I believe its a choice. I can't scan my 5-year old cousin to see if she's gay or straight. Why do i believe it? Because being gay is a lifestyle and should not be compared to race. If a married man came choose to be gay, then i can choose to be straight :lol:

2nd, he was full on gay, not go.

3rd, it is a lifestyle. My mom knows a guy who actually turned gay. She goes to work all the time with the guy. Knows him for years. I'll believe her more than you pal.

People are born gay, but many do not realize it until they are much older. I've been gay pretty much my entire life, but I did not figure it out until I was old enough to know what it was. 
And for the lesbian? People's sexualities change, but do not 'become'. I was bisexual when I was much younger, then pansexual, and so forth. Gays can also become 'straight' due to pressure, abuse, and so forth. Although, they are still very much gay, and may even be bisexual or a different sexuality. There is no way in saying that they aren't, lying, which happens a lot in lgbt, that they really are is another case played in the part of sexuality. It's not a choice, chemicals, the brain, and genetics all play a part. Seemingly, they may be making it seem like they are x sexuality when they could also not be. People tend to believe in their own lies if they tell themselves it enough.

Though I'm not too sure on the whole subject, I do see one point in how it couldn't possibly be a choice in most occasions. 

Like, do you think a guy would choose to be gay, if he was living in a family that despised even the mention of homosexuality?

To be honest, I personally believe that humans aren't born with any sexuality. We choose to be what we choose to be; just like I chose to be pansexual. It's a jaded logic, but I think in that specific way. I don't support those who are against homosexual marriage though.

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.

Well now that's weird. 
Personally speaking I did not choose my sexuality, if I could I would have rather chosen to be heterosexual than having to deal with the idiocy of bigots around me, but I just can't help the fact I feel attraction to all and any sex/gender.

People choosing their sexuality is just a dumb myth to me.
