Is heterosexuality a choice?
Is heterosexuality a choice?
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
No, a person is or a person is not gay. Gay people are not turned gay or turned straight. Gay is gay and straight is straight. Sure there are doubters, people who try it both ways but most of them will be bi-sexual or bi-curious. Fully straight men do not engage in homosexual behavior (or most of them do not at least).
People should allow other people to be what they want to be when it comes to gay/straight/bi-sexual/transgender, people do not choose the path they find themselves on so it would be pretty nice for other people to remember that and treat everyone like they want to be treated themselves.
I am straight but that does not define me, being a decent person defines me much more than my gender/age/etc. Live and let live IMHO.

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
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.
Attraction is a byproduct of hormonal and chemical as well as physiological reactions within the body. These are programmed into our DNA and at the right times are coded to take effect; love is a byproduct of such sequencing of events. Therefore if such events occur is heterosexual humans then they too must occur in homosexuals; the differences lie in how the sequencing unravels and the outcomes it creates. In heterosexuals men like women and vice versa. This is the way the code is written in most humans; it is a standard for the specie, however there are humans in which the sequencing can result in a different outcome such as homosexuality. This doesn't warrant a correction of a condition, it is simply how one comes to be; homosexuality is not standard to the specie however it does occur and how we deal with this variance is largely influenced by societal standards, expectations of such and the laws governing our particular cultures.
Neither heterosexuality nor homosexuality are choices, they are both byproduct of our generic sequencing with heterosexuality being the standard and natural outcome of such sequences.
But the homosexual sex drive, like the heterosexual sex drive, is simply not a choice.
Current scientific presentation (less than a year old) has revealed that homosexuality is epigenetically inculcated during gestation (not "genetically" inculcated) ..
.. And, when you examine the causative factors of homosexuality it bears an exact resemblance etiologically to the etiology of spina bifida and other birth defects: http://www.debatepolitics.com/sex-an...th-defect.html (Homosexuality Is A Birth Defect).
At this point in time, there is no other unrefuted scientific presentation on the cause of homosexuality .. and the current scientific presentation on the cause of homosexuality has yet to receive any rational scientific conjecture from other scientists.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
Anybody have statistics on the sexual orientation outcome of children raised by gay parents? After all...role modeling is a real effect of parenting.
My bet...NO...gay parents don't in anyway influence their child's sexual orientation.
If that's a good bet...then I'm betting that sexual orientation...is simply a product of wiring at birth.
However, I'm not claiming that environmental homosexuality doesn't exist. I don't doubt that it does. But I believe that environmental sexual orientation effects...are the exception and far from the rule.
