It is not a "free choice" type of thing. It is NOT a mutation.
Let me try to phrase it in a way a straight person will understand.
Example: Ten straight men. Of those ten, two are most sexually aroused ONLY by a woman's buttocks. The other eight straight men are
So...are the two Butt-lovers mutants?
Let's make it more difficult....some men whip their heads around at just about any redheaded woman. Other men turn away, completely uninterested.
All of these examples are superficial, I realize...BUT that is how we are wired, sexually. It goes a long way back, in our evolutionary history. In
fact, ALL animals select sex partners by purely superficial means, at first. Note the displays in the anilm al world, and courting rituals, etc.
Humans (and likely other animals, higher level animals as well) have a capacity to go beyond mere exterior appearances, and can form bonds, and love
deeply regardless of looks or "attractiveness" --- which also brings up ANOTHER point. ultural differences, even within Human populations, can
dictate standards of what's considered "attractive".
For instance, a few hundred years ago, or so, in Western society, plump women were favored over slender ones.
So...on a purely physical, sexual arousal and stimulation level, it is just a fact that there are men who are aroused by other men, and ONLY other
men. And, same for some women.
There are far, far more Humans out there who engage in bisexual behavior than most people realize. That aspect might
encompass a certain level
of "choice" (or just reflect a very horny, over-sexed insatiable appetite).
In any case, I find your OP a bit offensive, at first glance. Hope you merely wished to get attention, and flags, and decided to stir things a little
to see what happened.
