    No, I didn't say most aspects of traits are not chosen either. I said, most traits are not chosen. These are two completely separate ideas.

    Things I did not say: 1) Traits are un-choosable. 2) Aspects of traits are un-choosable.

    Things I did say: Most traits are unchosen. (That most traits are unchosen does not mean that said traits are unchangeable).

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Any favorite color other than Red is a one way trip to hell. I have a book that says so.
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    So, you just can't leave the house without wearing something green and your a 500 pounder because you can't stop eating whatever they hell it is you like?

    EXACTLY, everyone knows homosexuals can't go more than 5 minutes without having rough bareback sex, everything they do is affected by their sexual preference.

    Ok, which traits are not chosen and which are? What is the physical limitation of traits? Where do traits reside? Are they physical facts or philosophical constructs? Are traits uncontrollable drivers of day to day human existence? What is the overall impact of said traits?

    I can. Just like straights can choose to be celibate, and homos can choose not to have gay sex for as long as they choose not to have sex.

    Then....we aren't dogs with no control over our sexual impulses?

    Eh, I guess people differ with regard to their sexual impulses. Some men and women feel they have to get some, right now, the moment they walk through the door. But generally I'd say the answer to your question is Yes.

    Sexual impulses aren't the same thing as sexual identity/orientation though.
