Good question. I guess it has to do with how they identify. Homosexuality isn't defined by sex and only sex. There's more to it.
If we think about it, we're not defined ONLY by who we want to have sex with, we're defined by many things. We have our own individual interests,
our own "style", our own likes and dislikes. There are also the male and female stereotypes.
Say a man is gay. He's not only sexually attracted to other men the way women are, he also has many of the same interests that women have. He may be
interested in fashion, in makeup, in things we may consider "feminine" and expresses that interest in the way he dresses. If his interests are in
fashion, he probably won't be wearing jeans and a flannel shirt.
A woman may be gay, but that doesn't mean the only thing that defines her is her sexual interest in females. She may be interested in the outdoors,
in sports, in woodworking, in a variety of other things that we consider to be "masculine". When you so some of these activities, your clothing is a
factor. You couldn't really go deer hunting in a dress and heels. You couldn't really play softball in one either.
So, I guess it's an outward expression of who they feel they are. At times it may be instrumental in activies, at other times it's merely what they
are more comfortable with or how they see themselves.
I like wearing sneakers, that doesn't make me a basketball player. I like wearing jeans, boots and western shirts, it doesn't make me a cowboy. I
have a flight jacket, it doesn't make me a pilot. But I like wearing those things. I like the way they feel and the way they look, so I wear them. I
guess the people you are wondering about feel the same way about what they wear.
Being gay isn't a choice, however, there is a choice involved in how you deal with it, in this case, what they wear. The people who scream "it's a
choice" can't differentiate the two. It's there no matter what, the only choice involved is in how you react to it. In today's world, they are
allowed to react to it in a healthy, accepting manner instead of hiding in a closet and contemplating suicide. Sounds like a wise "choice" to me in
