Why Do People Assume You Choose To Be Gay Or Lesbian?Today during my Sociology class, we were talking about deviance and how a lot of psychologists believe that you're born 'bad'. Well, one of my stupid classmates, Ian, said, "I don't believe you can be born bad just as much as you can be born gay,"
Well, that got me ticked off. Why is it some people think gays & lesbians choose to be homosexual? That's insane! I know I don't wake up in the morning and say, "You know what, I'm feeling being straight today." Hell no. I know that I like guys and I know that I like girls, too. I am old enough to say that I was born that way, but didn't realize it or fully understand it until I was in 8th grade.
If being homosexual truly was a CHOICE, then there would be no such thing as a 'closet'. If you chose to be gay, wouldn't you come out and say, "Hey, I'm gay!" Who wouldn't? But if you're born gay, you can't control it, whether you like it or not. That's why a lot of people who know they're homosexual are in the 'closet'.
Know what I'm saying?
I don't know, this really bothered me today at how stupid some people can be. Why can't people just learn to accept others?
