I'm trying to make the point that we can make choices, but the influences for them are unknown to us.
Sexual orientation isn't a preference that is why you are having difficulty explaining. Nothing In or psyche compares to it.
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.
I think the "middle" group is where most "psycho-social" gays come from. Various developmental factors tipping them one way or the other.
I don't think a "1" homosexual could be hetero or a "10" hetero could be homosexual.
I still don't think its a conscious "choice" even for the "middles", although I've met gays who appear to be gay as a "fallback". That just gave up on being hetero for one reason or another.
Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:

Weather you are attracted to the same sex is not a choice Its something determined bye home life and genes like sexuality in general.
