Only when you're in college.
Why would any CHOOSE to be gay? Thats CHOOSING to be a minority and face bullying and a lot of crap. Especially in other countries. People are born the way they are with their sexuality. Do you CHOOSE to be straight or have you always liked the opposite sex just naturally? Sexual orientation and sexual urges are something every human being is born with. You don't CHOOSE to get turned on. It just happens, right? Same thing with orientation. Some people get turned on by the same sex. It just happens. Some people have a different orientation then you do. I don't choose to be bisexual. I naturally, out of my control, get turned on by men AND women, just as you naturally get sexually urges and get turned on by the opposite sex. I even happen to be more attracted to women. Why do you think people have to come out as gay? If it was their choice they would be walking around proud of it, not scared of any judgement from others.
Yeah, really :)
Of course it is.
I think I am gay by design, however if I had a choice I would still choose to be gay anyway. Playing with ***** are soooo much more fun than *******. <br />
However if I was a girl, I would choose to be straight. Same reason. :)
Anyone who thinks that sexuality is a choice is not up to date on the research in the area such as twin studies. There is a very strong genetic aspect to a person being gay or straight. When a statistically large number of genetically identical twins separated at birth and raised in different environments both develop the same sexuality that needs to be accepted as proof. When fraternal twins ( none identical twins) are followed the sexuality of the individuals is random and not statistically significant. It is the basis of scientific study into so many other things in a human being and it is accepted as evidence without question. Why can’t people accept the same evidence be accepted when considering sexuality?
Hypothetically , if i were gay i would feel better if i thought i was born like that , and if i thought that it was my decision to be gay maybe i wouldn't feel so great about it.<br />
if this makes sense
I do, I know, because I chose to be Bi-sexual
just about everybody in the Red states, from what I hear.
About as much of a choice as me liking women
Gay men report, on an average, slightly longer and thicker penises than non-gay men.<br />
Gay men and straight women have, on average, equally proportioned brain hemispheres. Lesbian women and straight men have, on average, slightly larger right brain hemispheres.<br />
The VIP SCN nucleus of the hypothalamus is larger in men than in women, and larger in gay men than in heterosexual men.<br />
The average size of the INAH-3 in the brains of gay men is approximately the same size as INAH 3 in women, which is significantly smaller, and the cells more densely packed, than in heterosexual men's brains.<br />
The anterior commissure is larger in women than men and was reported to be larger in gay men than in non-gay men, but a subsequent study found no such difference.<br />
Gay men's brains respond differently to fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor.<br />
The functioning of the inner ear and the central auditory system in lesbians and bisexual women are more like the functional properties found in men than in non-gay women (the researchers argued this finding was consistent with the prenatal hormonal theory of sexual orientation).<br />
The suprachiasmatic nucleus was found by Swaab and Hopffman to be larger in gay men than in non-gay men, the suprachiasmatic nucleus is also known to be larger in men than in women.<br />
The startle response (eyebl<x>ink following a loud sound) is similarly masculinized in lesbians and bisexual women.<br />
Gay and non-gay people's brains respond differently to two putative sex pheromones (AND, found in male armpit secretions, and EST, found in female urine).<br />
The amygdala, a region of the brain, is more active in gay men than non-gay men when exposed to sexually arousing material.<br />
Finger length ratios between the index and ring fingers may be different between non-gay and lesbian women.<br />
Gay men and lesbians are significantly more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous than non-gay men and women; Simon LeVay argues that because "[h]and preference is observable before birth... [t]he observation of increased non-right-handness in gay people is therefore consistent with the idea that sexual orientation is influenced by prenatal processes," perhaps heredity.<br />
A study of 50 gay men found 23% had counterclockwise hair whirl, as opposed to 8% in the general population. This may correlate with left-handedness.<br />
Gay men have increased ridge density in the fingerprints on their left thumbs and pinkies.<br />
Length of limbs and hands of gay men is smaller compared to height than the general population, but only among white men.
But if it were- and longer- thicker pen!ses were a perk-would you switch teams?
I don't know, but I can suggest...<br />
We're all different, yet, unless we want to give up the notion of "free-will," we're obligated to believe that sane human beings may have genetic or cultural tendencies they can choose to follow or suppress.<br />
Further, intimate activities to completion (ie., pleasure) tends to reinforce our mental states just as painful activites tend to discourage them. <br />
So my theory is that some portion of humanity is predisposed towards being Gay and...<br />
1. some accept it, indulge it, and thus reinforce it (they're Gay)<br />
2. some deny it, indulge it, and thus reinforce it (they're Gay)<br />
3. some deny it, indulge in fantasy and guilt, and thus reinforce it (they're Gay)<br />
4. some ignore it, indulge in other pleasurable activities, thus reinforcing Something Else (probably not Gay)<br />
But that's just how I feel about it.<br />
I identify as het m and yeah, I was Born That Way, too.
yeh they want to turn us lesbian<br />
hmm.... what a give away!
Someone said to me, "If being gay is a choice then they could choose to be turned on by the opposite sex, and the inverse would also have to be true. Straight people could choose to be turned on by the same sex."<br />
Are you referring to the intolerance?
is celibacy a choice?
No that happens when you're ugly and need an excuse I hear.
Idiots do. I dont think being gay is a choice any more than me being straight is.
