If i could somehow make such a deliberate choice, i would remember it. So let's move on from that.
Now, either one is born with a "gay brain," or some stimulus makes the choice (with an assist from prefrontal cortex), but what is the diff for practical purposes? The result is still a homosexual, through no real fault of their own
Also if the prefrontal cortex is responsible and still changing up to age 20 or so, then sexuality should be in flux or easily alterable at least during the puberty up to age 20 period. But that wasn't the case for me, at all, and for plenty others i know
Or possibly i misunderstand your argument, but it does seem diff from ben carson

OK I got one
What do Sara Palin, Ben Carson, Allen West and Michelle Bachmann have in common.
they are republicans that will NEVER be elected president
sigh . . I HONESTLY hope these loons fade into the back ground and the ones that are there stay there . . . nothing would make me happier than two or more candidates (party doesnt matter) running that actually have a chance with the american people and current political climate.
What threw me off i guess is the socially *conscious choice* part, as if it's limited to an individual choice in 21st century. I mean no one that i recall admitted to jerking off, even though i'm sure everyone did, because it can be done in private and it's not a big deal anyway. Being gay in a homophobic environment where the whole school will find out? No one is so crazy as to make such a decision
