    A bisexual is someone who wants to double their chances of having a date on Saturday night.

    But that is not exactly the same question as the OP. Not everyone is singularly driven by gender and sex for a relationship.

    No bisexual is when you are attracted to both. There is a difference between choosing between one attraction or the other and being attracted to both.

    You don't choose attraction. You only choose whether or not you're going to suppress the attraction that you already feel. If you have the choice, that's the choice you're making.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    the 1st line of my post, which you quoted...
    Originally Posted by Empirica

    leading to the following question...

    to which I respond...
    You misunderstood me Ari;
    I believe we all have a right to express our opinions but some of us should avoid discussing them with those who might disagree_

    The reason being, some people with a strong emotional connection to an issue are unable to rationally discuss it with dissenters_

    Such people are convinced that all dissent of popular gay myths and issues are rooted in hate, homophobia and religious fanaticism_

    I will admit to having a couple of issues for which I am passionate about, but pro/con gay rights isn't even close to making the list_

    You must have missed the 2nd line of my post(below):

    Which basically translates to:
    I have no official position on gay issues at this time and therefore am able to discuss them logically and rationally_

    And to better clarify the 3rd line of that same post(below):

    Which basically translates to:
    If the United States wasn't under multiple threats from terrorism, economic disaster, the AGW scam, assaults on the Constitution, the destruction of the American Dream from with-in and a clueless Main Stream Media; then I might take the time to consider whether Gay Rights was an important enough issue to get involved with, one way or the other_

    In a less chaotic world with fewer major issues, I might be inclined to add a personal emotional approach to the strictly logical one I now rely on when discussing minor issues such as "LGBT equality" and "school lunches"_

    Long story short people who are LGBT or people have empathy for LGBT people shouldn't discuss it because, well they care. You don't care or take a position. Does that summarize it?
