Yes, but these are intrinsic desires that are biological in nature, the urges are independent from our choice in what pleases us. These are socially manufactured and as of yet, not entirely understood.This is kind of disturbing...i dunno about you but i don't experience 'uncontrollable rage' just cause of crap on tv.
I don't think you understand that the sex drive is quite different and not dependent on any trigger really. It's not like if i were put in a padded cell i would stop having homosexual thoughts. No amount of staring at tits or even sex with females will do the trick either. The urges come consistently, with or without provocation. It's just not the same as getting upset at crap on the news
Gay thoughts and gay acts are the same thing. My state of mind is the same whether I'm thinking about it or acting it out, my brain is behaving and lighting up exactly the same way.no, we are the ones making a distinction between gay thoughts and acts, just like you have murderous thoughts but don't (i hope) commit murder
This is quite possibly correct that, for some at least, lesbianism is more fluid. I suppose it has to do with the effect of hormones in the womb being different (androgen vs estrogen or whatever)
But it begs the question, which I posed.
The choice, as it were, may not be something you can remember, or pinpoint, but I believe that one was certainly made for you at some point in your life. Young boys are especially susceptible to outside stimulus, and there can be many factors that play into it. I will admit, it isn't anywhere near understood, but the brain does work in very mysterious ways, and we're just scratching the surface of the surface right now. Everyone has different upbringings, and like fingerprints no two are the same which adds to the complexities of finding correlations from one experience to the next, but there is defiantly something that triggers the brain to escape from its observably normal biological evolutionary path.Sweeping generalizations like this don't help. For some it might be, probably somewhere in the middle of the sexuality continuum, while for others, it definitely is not fluid. I've never been attracted to females, for instance, so where is the fluidity in that? Where is the choice in that?
I don't profess to know, but the subject is fascinating to me, like many enigmas in human evolution.
