    re: Would you change your sexuality if you could?

    "came my sexuality"? That seems redundant.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    The poll would be of interest if it separated the homosexual responses and heterosexual responses.

    Third option for me. At one point in time back when I thought me liking guys was wrong I would have changed my sexuality but now I wouldnt.

    Do that in the narrative. You have a sexuality don't you? Would you change it? It isn't about homosexuals and heterosexuals.

    Why would anyone be interested in changing their sexuality?

    Perhaps there is someone who see it greener on the other side? I don't know?

    I certainly would not be interested in changing my sexuality. I quite enjoy being gay. Obviously, I have no experience in the opposite sex (nor have I ever wanted to seek that experience), but going from the advice that I have doled out to my straight guy and girl friends and my own experiences in return, it seems to me that the dynamics of gay relationships are a heck of a lot easier to understand and handle. There is no gender gap to bridge, no stereotypes or preconceived "rules" of dating, and I generally run on the same wavelength as the guys I have dated. Plus, no hair in the drain.

    As a teenager, definitely; as an adult, I don't see the point.
