    An alternating orientation isn't bisexual, bisexual is a rather static orientation. my sexual attraction or orientation never altered and it never will. I am certainly not bisexual.

    You just told me i am bisexual, no i am not, i know meter than you about my sexuality.
    Of course you do. I said, "I believe we are all bisexual." That is a statement of my personal belief.


    You suggested that it was circumstances that made me gay, you never elaborated on that "theory." Do so now, what circumstances?
    I didn't suggest it. I asked it. I don't know what circumstances. I was hoping to learn from You.

    "change as many times he/she wants" well then in that case it is just a simple matter of choice?
    All I know is the concept of being sodomized isn't something I could ever 'go for' if I lived ten lifetimes.

    Atheist? A poor choice. God is an open question, and likely always will be. Come on over to the logical folks, the Agnostics.

    Most American men love it, although we call it a blowjob. It's also Sodomy.

    At least get it right.

    My perspective on you is that you are an "everybody is just like me opinion, there isn't even a choice of either or, its your way or no way.
    you believe things about my sexuality? Its none of your concern. I am not bisexual I thought i was for a long time, I wanted to be because i could have a choice. But I am gay. Listen it isn't your way or no way. Most people can't change their orientation because that dint have the same orientation as you do. Yours is fixed you will always be bisexual, its the orientation with the most choice. But out will likely not change you even said it wouldn't.

    Let me put it this way, I have experienced bisexuality, I know first hand it isn't the same for everybody. I couldn't choose, i attempted. By your own Admission you are to scared to try. So don't sit in your ivory tower and tell somebody who has tried that they just didn't try hard enough. You don't know. I have walked the mile and survived you are to afraid to do so. So don't you lecture me on it..
    I feel the heat of your self-righteous fire. Something I said set you off. You've reacted. I hope you feel better. I re-iterate: I only state what I believe and I question beliefs. Remember what website you are on.

    That must be an interesting Bible you have there? What does it say about the Love of Money?

    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.
    No I'm not.

    People are different do to many factors. John, for example, is simply not attracted to females. There's no choice. He just isn't attracted to them. Never was and never will be. Sue, for example, could never really be attracted to females either. She just isn't built that way. Again no choice.

    My problem s with those of you who insist it s choice, but demonstrate no mechanism for making this supposed choice. Instead, you show people who never once considered any alternative other than the one they always were attracted to. It's like you don't understand the nature of choosing. If I cannot consider any alternative, there is no choice at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
