Homosexuality is a choice. It's made by those that either are not interested in women or can't get women. People aren't born this way, you don't know what you're attracted to when you're a toddler. Enjoy your choice, but don't make it out to be some disease or human rights issue. It's an alternate lifestyle, nothing more.
High-functioning alcoholics can go years and even decades without being confronted, although as time goes on, most will incur some consequences: an angry spouse, maybe a failed marriage blamed on “other problems,” a DUI, or some other indication that they should address their drinking behavior. Often, until some major event occurs related to their addiction, they and those around them do not address the behavior.
A good example might be Diane Shuler, a 36-year-old mother who killed herself and eight others driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana. Among the dead were one of her children and three nieces. Her son survived the crash. Her family reacted with shock and dismay: the woman they knew was not an alcoholic.

I went to Christian youth group activities in high school, I tried to follow that herd. I have never been one to follow a herd......
Maybe I'm just more of a shepherd that a sheep.
. . . the president of the Exodus organization gave up the idea that psychotherapy could reverse the homosexual impulse. Even after some 20 or so years of him being married to a woman he couldn't shake his attraction to other men. So be it.
Homosexuality is a very complex issue but if one has a serious desire to change they can!
