    Simply vote and discuss whether you believe that homosexuals have a choice in the matter, or were simply born that way, with no choice whatsoever.

    Please be courteous - thanks in advance.
    I don't necessarily believe I was born gay, but I am certain that I did not really have a choice in it. I kicked that dead horse long after it was bone. But there are so many different people that I can believe people choose homosexuality. I can only speak for myself. I did not choose it.

    I tried to make it clear that I asserted that people are different. You make it sound as if all people are the same.

    But again one needs not do A and B to decide to pick B or A. What you are claiming is a false dilemma of sorts. You are claiming that for their to be a choice one must first be bisexual. Which I am sure is true for some people but that doesnt mean that all people who can choose their sexuality are bisexual. Some people can simply say hey I am gay without ever kissing or doing anything sexual with the opposite sex or even the same sex.

    Now the part where you are inferring that there wasnt a choice because something else was at play is only relevant for those that claim that their sexuality isnt a choice. You are trying to over simplify sexuality way too much. Human is a very complex system of variables. For example I met a lady at a artists party once that said that she was born a male in a females body. But she was dressed very very femininely, she asserted that she was a gay man so she dresses and acts like a woman. And to further demonstrate the complexities, Some people identify as being female when their body is male but they are straight. Personally I dont dispute anyones sexuality since that is their personal situation.

    Indeed we learn more as time goes on. Apparently somebody doesn't like the idea that we learn things and assignee new things make old superstitions obsolete. Galileo and the Catholic church come to mind.

    A choice usually means that a decision was made. If a person chose to be hetero then they are straight, they are by no means bisexual. Since bisexual would be a different choice rather than being straight.

    Its like this choose A B or C (A being Straight, B being Bi, C being not straight) So obviously choosing A isnt choosing B or C.

    The list of what Christianity has been right about grows shorter by the day.

    He is claiming that everybody is bisexual. He is dictating to everybody what their sexuality is. I fail to see his point, because out makes no sense, he doesn't have any education or didn't appear to. This hypothesis he has is debunked. He has not given any means to support this hypothesis.

    I would like for him to post some support fur this theory, but i assume that it is simply his interpretation, therefore it is esoteric and rather meaningless.

    I think we are all bisexual. To me, Bisexual means that one can choose his/her orientation and change as many times he/she wants.
