    Really? Because I never made a decision about my sexuality, I became sexually aware around age 11, and I knew I was supposed to like boys, but I was attracted to girls instead. And I was quite comfortable with this, and had my first crush on a girl shortly after. I then became uncomfortable with my sexuality because I learned people didn't like gay people, and that it was somehow wrong, and I didn't get over that until recently. I tried to choose to like men during that time, but it wasn't possible, it wasn't who I was. I couldn't just say, well since homosexuality is disliked by alot of people, I'll just be heterosexual. It doesn't work that way.

    I guess not. I never made a decision. You on the other hand have taken the position that sexuality is a choice for everyone. That kind of screws your previous argument to hell and back doesn't it?

    I haven't taken the position that it is a choice for everyone. My position is that it may be a choice, consciously or subconsciously, it may be learned, it may be genetic and it may simply be a fetish.

    That's my official position on what causes homosexuality.

    Really, I was propositioned fairly early, buy an adult and several older teen and pre-teen boys that lived in my building and neighborhood....and I have (had) a gay uncle. I was aware of homosexuality at a young age and it was never really addressed in our family as a horrible sin or wrong, or whatever. Mainly in deference to my Uncle, I think. It wasn't ostracized.

    What about them? It is entirely possible (however difficult for you to accept) that Heterosexuality IS the normal and natural sexuality for humans and that homosexuality IS a deviancy. I don't mean that to be insulting, YS. Just offering a possibility.

    Would it be normal or natural for there to be no homosexuality in the human species?

    Good question, considering there are indications that homosexuality in humans has been around as long as we have....it's possible that it is not natural for it not to exist in humanity. That doesn't rule out it being a fetish or a choice of some sort though.
