    Indeed I am.

    I never once made a decision to like women. To find their hips and breasts and all that good stuff alluring. Thier voices, the way they walk. The primal urge to ravish them. First I would take off thei... oh excuse me :blush:

    Anyway, I have never met one person EVER (hetero or homosexual) who recalls "deciding" to be attracted to either men or women. Have you?

    I think we are all sexual and "decide" who we don't find attractive.

    Perhaps it is more a decision to NOT be attracted to men (or women, as the case may be). Perhaps it is that we are taught, either by our parents or by society, to be one way or another.

    You asked me if I decided to like women? Well no, but that's because it's instinctive to be attracted to the opposite sex, as that is our method of procreation, if such an instinct was not programmed into us, we would not persist as a species. I think the rest of my opinion on that can be divulged through a proccess of elimination and following through logically.

    And you know.. if you were gay you'd find it instinctive to be attracted to the same sex.

    Congratulations, you've just figured out how sexual orientation works!

    No, if I was gay, then it would be by choice and not by instinct. Instinct is what preserves our species. Homosexual relations cannot produce offspring, so it's not instinctive to be attracted to the opposite sex, it's only weakness of character that allows such a perversion to take place. Thus it is unnatural, and therefore a choice.

    Appendixes do not directly help further our species. Therefore, people with appendixes are perversions and should not be allowed to marry one another!

    ;)

    I'm gay, I never woke up one morning and decided "I think, from now on, I'm going to like men."

    of course, being gay is a choice. Most gays wake up one morning and think, hmm, I don't feel hated enough. I think I'm gonna be gay, so that I can be hated by bigots around the world for it, can be called derisive names and can be discriminated against. :ack:

    By knowing more than 2 bisexuals in real life? It's not that difficult with a bit of experience.

    Of course, if you want to scream "WEIRDO!" and run a mile when you encounter something strange, that's your choice.

    This resonates as being true to me. I have no proof but my gut

    I encourage you to examine the science of left-handedness; the cause and the evolutionary support to maintain the genetic ability. The genetic support for homosexuality seems to be very similar. Remember, "homosexuals make good uncles".

    They both are 'errant behaviour', but both actually have evolutionary support. Evolutionary strength can be gained by having strong and prosperous families, the genes can be carried through the nephews and neices - if they thrive. And they're more likely to thrive if they're not competing with cousins, but teaming up to compete against others.

    To assume, de facto, that it's a 'perversion' because it's "unlikely to produce offspring" is doing yourself a disservice. You're setting yourself up to never actually understand the issue. Only a small minority of people claim to 'choose' their sexuality, a very small minority. It's not enough to label the whole crew.

    I generally find bisexual people to be the most glamourous!

    That's a joke statement. It implies that they're hogging all the sex

    This must be a record for the largest number of non-sequiturs to grace such a short post.
