The person chose to pretend to be heterosexual to comform. He could have also chosen to be celibate, or to not comform and act within his innate orientation. The fact that in the example he chose to behave as expected does not mean he is not homosexual or that this type of choice indicates his actual orientation is also just a choice.

I don't have a choice as to whether I find men attractive..I just do
And I am not attracted to women...
It's not a choice...
I am certainly not arguing Homosexuality is a choice. However, when the man in the scenario decided to comform that WAS a choice. It was not about his homosexual orientation. It was about how he wanted to appear to family, and society at large. In doing so he made an informed decision...i.e. a rational "choice"
He then kept making the effort, no matter what it took. Again, all choices. But he was, and still is homosexual. That was never a "choice." Is that any clearer, or is my post and position still unclear?
I believe that in 29 states in the USA..you can be fired if you are openly gay...
Quote from Martina Navratilova..
''29 states in this country you can still get fired for not just being gay, but if your employer thinks you are gay."
Never fear that by accepting some anti-gay argument that visible choices to comform to social expectation means that you must also making a choice to be gay. They simply confuse the difference and think it proves their point.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
