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...<br />
That's your lifestyle choice!<br />
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 ?
Why do people hurt themselves over being gay? This is easy to answer! It is because other humans can't accept them for the person they are. We cause our fellow humans so much conflict
they can't be happy as a person. You can't help who you love! How sad that a man or woman would try to live a life and pretend to be happy rather than ask family and friends to accept them for the person they really are.
No it's how they are born
For those of you who still think that people choose to be gay, I would like to ask you: Do you remember the time in your life whe you choose to be straight? (Probably not). Then it is safe to say that you were born straight. (If you had mad any choice as important as that, you would surely remember) It's exactly the same for gays, they don'e remember either, since they were born that way just like you. But since our society is so opposed to being gay, most gays fake being straight until they decide to comeout, which is a choice, which they certainly remember.
