    I'm kind of like that (everything is always new and wonderful, in Boop land) - drives my sister mad. If I could choose not to let anybody engage me, or bring me down, or adversely affect me in any way, shape or form? O wait. That's probably the definition of Nirvana, to some degree.

    The first part of your post made me pause and think.

    Its abnormal but natural...I agree its abnormal but its natural to those so inclined...I never thought about it in that vein...

    The everyones bi thing is ridiculous imho

    Compulsive behavior is behavior performed without the choice of the performer. I do not believe all (healthy)sexual behavior is compulsive.

    Do you choose what foods you find repulsive and which ones you find delectable? If so, then why not choose to find the healthiest foods delectable and unhealthy foods like ice cream and cake to be repulsive?

    Because you have a hard time believing you don't have all the answers.

    Do you choose what foods you find repulsive and which ones you find delectable? If so, then why not choose to find the healthiest foods delectable and unhealthy foods like ice cream and cake to be repulsive?
    I don't find any foods repulsive, and I generally control what I eat. Not all of us are slaves to primal instincts......

    Without choice? I don't feel I have to have sex with someone of the same sex. I could remain celibate or I could have sex with someone of the opposite sex while fantasizing about someone of the same sex. I'm not compelled against my will to have sex with people of the same sex. That is who I find arousing and so I do. Not really any different than a heterosexual person. They could remain cellibate or have sex with someone of the same sex while fantasizing about someone of the opposite sex.

    Then being a homosexual is not compulsive....it's a choice....for you.

    Then you, my friend, are making a choice.

    Interesting.

    In theory, if you were not Christian, could you choose by the same process to be homosexual rather than heterosexual?
