    I Just Wanted To Say..

    My best friend is a lesbian and at school she's being bullied for that. I stood up for her so many times and they say that we were in love with each other but I'm a straight girl. Even through all those talks I would never ever let her down! I have so many friends who are...

    Being gay was actually very normal back in the

    day. A lot of people today are gay almost half of the country. It's just that it's so suppressed by people that a lot of people are in the closet making it seem out of the norm or minorities.

    Why Would I Choose To Be A Lesbian?

    I am a firm believer that homosexuals are born that way. I am a lesbian and I have grown up in a very strict, closed minded family. Being raised in a Baptist church, I was always told that being gay was a sin, even an abomination. I've known from a pretty young age that I'm a...

    I Was Always Gay

    I've kissed one of my friends before. It was on the cheek, as a joke.Plus, I've never had a crush on a guy in the same way I've had a crush on a girl.I know a cute guy when I see one, but I think I blush when I see a cute girl. I don't know for sure, because I'm black, it doesn't...

    Everyone wants to be popular,

    nobody want to be in the minority so that's why I think that people are born gay and don't choose to be gay.

    Duh ,,

    Did any one weigh the pros

    and cons of being gay? Would you choose to be hated, to suffer discrimination and all the rest we endure. We are gay, we choose to live a gay life and not a lie so others will not hate us. Did any one choose to be str8 or were you born that way?

    You don't wake up one day and say: "oh you know what, I'm going to be gay." Yeah no that's like setting yourself up to be hated by society, and who would do that?

    What Causes Homosexuality?

    Three Classifications of Homosexual

    Yes, mostly biological.

    Maybe a very small percentage it is psychological? I do think there is a small number of people that choose to be gay for a plethora of reasons. ...as do some people pretend to be straight.

    A newborn knows nothing about sex. However, that newborn is born with sexual proclivities, and if it has the tendencies to being attracted/aroused by someone of the same sex it will grow up to be gay or bisexual.

    Same As Being Born Straight.

    Some people believe that people choose to be gay. . . Why would they do that?? Why would they choose to be hurt and alienated, in some cases, even by there own parents.The most  human instinct is self-preservation. So, why would anybody choose to be casted out from the world??

    The Heart Wants...

    As they say "the heart wants what the heart wants". You can't change your sexuality anymore than you can change anything else you like, love, or hate. Whatever turns you on is what turns you on period.

    that when you are born your sexuality is hard wired it's in your brain it may take a while to figure out wether your gay or not but it's there from birth. I personally knew u was gay from about 10 but I thought I was bi from age 7. it's a shame that society has put labels on...

    I believe that all gays, lesbians, bi-sexual, and transgender were born that way. That a person doesn't choose their sexuality no more than they choose the color of their skin or the color of their eyes. Think about it! Did you suddenly wake up one day and say, "Hey, I'm...

    Obviously gay dudes have more femininity than other dudes. They had to have been born with it. They have a higher voice and walk like a girl and stuff like that. There is no way that anyone can say that "Gays just want attention" um no hun, they were born that way #lovewins...
