    ● How does this affect the notion of being born gay/straight?

    In the social work world that I used to be a part of, we used the term "Men who have sex with men" (or MSM) as opposed to gay.

    There are frequently people (especially in highly religious minorities) who have sex with people of the same sex but would never identify as gay, because it isn't acceptable within their culture.

    Gay (again, in the social work world) is considered an identity, whereas sexual behaviors are just that, sexual behaviors.

    No one has explained to me how a straight man can have sex with other men, especially on a regular basis, without being at least bisexual. Sexual behavior and preferences are not separate.

    You don't have to be attracted to someone in order to get aroused around them or have sex with them. Fantasies take care of the former and fortitude, desperation or drugs take care of the latter.

    Drugs, I can see. But there's not enough fantasizing in the world to make me lick...well you know. No way.

    Same here.

    In fact: when I'm drunk I'm less likely to be turned on or willing ot have sex - drunk sex is ****ty sex. I don't like it much.

    That being said: I have no shame in saying I like other women - just not *that* way No amount of liquor would change that.
