    I think that you give way too much power to the idea of choice. Are yo usaying that you chose to be heterosexual, forgive me if I missed this mac.
    do you like anything now that you found distasteful as a child?

    I think you give to little power to the idea of choice.

    I thought your mother is gay?

    Good point, but I would counter that it was not that I now decided to choose to like it, but rather that my taste buds or my preferences matured. I dislike tomatoes sincerely when I was a kid and now I love them. I never once made a choice to like them. I just had one after twenty years of not eating them and found that I liked it intensely. I also liked tequila a lot, and then I drank too much of it, was violently sick and now it revolts me. I made no choice in the matter, I smell it and my stomach turns. I have tried drinking it a few times in fact, choosing to like it but it didn't work and then I just gave up. Choice doesn't define us... innate preferences do.

    I have brown eyes but they are very sensitive to light. I never chose this. I didn't choose to like pizza or sushi or sports or breasts... I never looked at a guys dick in gym and thought, hmmm... that might be fun to suck. I never chose to like the shape of a woman. Girls started getting curvy in middle school, started developing breasts and my eyes were drawn to them from some mystical power.

    My favorite TV show was Friends for the sole reason that Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox's nipples were hard in just about every scene. Damn I miss that show...

    Choice, the other white meat... it's over rated...


    I don't disagree with that.
    So one could say that you agree with it?

    In this case, matured is just a different word for changed.

    hmm, have you tried fellatio recently?

    Genetic, different entirely.

    There's a little evolution at work here....

    This is all just roundabout.

    Can you please tell us when you chose to be attracted to the first girl you were attracted to?

    Matured and changed are not the result of choice though... that was my point.

    hmm, have you tried fellatio recently?
    Ever? Nope...

    Except if sexual preference is genetic... I grant you that at least some homosexuals have chosen to be of that orientation. For various psychological reasons, abuse, whatever, they subconsciously chose this route, but not all... I would say not even most. Having been around literally thousands of gays and lesbians, they are just wired different, in general... There is no way that some bull dike lady or some flaming gay guy that shows up to the Halloween party in leopard skin tights, with a tail and riding roller blades chose to be gay. They are very naturally they way that they are...

    There's a little evolution at work here....
    Thank God for that too...

    I miss that too...
    Re-runs... it will happen. We just have to stay patient.

    So, there is never a choice?
    C'mon, you know that I am a reasonable guy. Of course there is choice. I chose to have kids but I didn't choose to love them. I chose to have sex with women, but I didn't choose to like a woman's body over a man's body. I choose pizza over burritos most of the time, though I love both, but I never chose to like Hawaiian Pizza. See where I am going with this?
