    My Honest Opinion!

    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...

    Say for instance a new born baby boy has to gay

    fathers. He grows up. Do you think he'll have interest in boys because his parents are gay or will that not have an effect on him. I feel in some cases a child can be brought up gay if that makes sense or can be persuaded to be gay. I don't think every child who is (LGB) are...

    I've Always Known I'm A Lesbian

    When I was four years old, my mom took me to the local swimming pool one afternoon. The two attendants on duty in the women's locker room caught my eye immediately: they were both middle-aged, with matching wedding bands, and kept giving each other that king of secret look/smile...

    Me and one of my good friends were talking

    about kids and she was like "Would you make your kids gay" and I said I wouldn't care if they were gay or straight but my child being around me and my husband all his life most likely he'll want the same thing but I'm not forcing him to be gay. And she was like she refuses to...

    Me Too

    I knew I was different from an early age. I had a normal childhood, did normal boy things. When I reached the age of 13, I started to notice boys instead of girls. It just all came naturally to me.  It wasn't a lifestyle choice. I am an observant Jew and believe that my gayness...

    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??

    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.

    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?

    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...

    Proclivities

    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.

    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.
