Indeed, Cart...I do not care that you have been known to run around entirely covered in white greasepaint, with a red wig, and covering your naughty bits with a cluster of clown noses...
That's your lifestyle choice!
I still like you!
I think it's been pretty well established that it's NOT a choice, anymore than someone chooses to be heterosexual. It just IS.
Respectfully, people have killed themselves over being gay. Others have spent fortunes trying NOT to be. Why would the attempt even be necessary if it was a choice ? There are still countries that murder people over it. Why would anyone choose that ?
