I guess i'll add my .02
I'm gay and it is most definately not a choice, i've never been attracted to the opposite sex, i may look at a woman and think, oh she's pretty but
I don't go 'Damn, I would like to get her in bed'. It's nothing like that, I live in Alabama, a very conservative part, and I tried so badly to
fit in, having long term heterosexual relationships, denying my homosexuality to myself, I even had sex with a woman just to see if it would trigger
some sort of desire for women that was not showing itself. Then finally I came to terms with it. I was gay, so I told my parents, and they reacted
horribly, but still loved me. I ended up dropping out of school in 10th grade because I was litterally getting the # beat out of me just because of my
I used to lay in bed throughout my teen years beggin God to change me, i cursed him for making me this way. I don't see how anyone could say it's a
choice to be this way, it's a lot harder than alot of people think, just being gay.
Eventually I embraced it, i'm glad im gay, I love men, the male body, attitutde etc.
Never fell in love with a female, never thought of them in that way, they make good best friends but that's about it.
You don't choose who to fall in love with, or who you are attracted to. It just happens.
