    It makes perfect sense. Science has at many points in history refuted it's previous findings, especially where newer and better methods/equipment have been developed and as new discoveries change what we can test on any given issue/topic.item.

    It was voted off, not proven by science, so no, it makes absolutely no sense.

    Based on science at the time, never any science when voted off, only public "PC" pressure

    Science? Nope. Tradition and prejudice.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    I picked maybe. The reason is because I have gay friends who have never felt sexually attracted to the opposite sex (which leads me to believe it is not always a choice). But I also know people who have considered themselves gay/lesbian at one point but 'switched back' later on. Even then, I wouldn't say it is 100% 'choice'. For example, one friend of mine was a lesbian from elementary school through most of high school. As a child she was molested by a male adult. This led her to distrust all men and become attracted only to females. When it comes to homosexuality, I don't think it's as black-and-white as either side makes it out to be. I believe some are born gay, and I believe some 'choose' to be gay based upon environment and past experiences.

    Human sexual orientation, likes most things, grades on a curve.

    Of course its a choice, like any other human behavior
    to believe otherwise shrinks a basic grasp of reality?

    A true believer in Free Will I see? It's a shame that science has pretty much proven that to be bunk, but that's not to say that people don't choose one side or the other, and switch from time to time. As the old joke goes, being bisexual instantly doubles your chances of getting laid on Saturday night.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    I can't be held responsible for my actions
    I was born this way
    society is to blame
    I had a bad home life
    Now I will say that I've known a very few homosexuals over the decades that were definitely 'born that way'
    but at the end of the day any non-deranged human being is in control of and responsible for their actions.
    the poll question was: " Is Homosexuality A Choice"
    hmm no wait a minute, if you are hetero and choose to be celibate does that mean what?
