I tend to frequent topics that has a main focus on Sexualities and Sexual Orientation that claim that "so and so people just choose to be the way
they are." From what I've seen these same individuals who claim this have very poor abilities to respond to actual facts that are placed within
those same threads. Facts such as biological and neurological traits that have been documented within thousands of subjects in hundreds of studies,
lists of thousands of other species that exhibit sexualities that are anything but heterosexual, and peer reviewed paper after peer reviewed paper.
But, their claim HAS to come from somewhere, doesn't it? I mean, how can someone reject all that information (not disprove it, just reject it)
without having some foundation for their claim?
I personally did not choose to be straight, nor did my wife choose to be bisexual, nor did many of my friends choose to be homosexual or heterosexual
(their words, not mine). We all seemed to merely "discover" who we are attracted to, rather than choose it. Nevertheless, the claim that
"homosexuals choose to be homosexuals" and "it's just a lifestyle choice" float around in an ever-populous manner.
So I would like to hear from those that claim that "Sexual Orientation is a choice" when they can honestly remember when they chose to be attracted
to the same gender, the opposite gender, both genders, or what have you?
Has anyone else here ever chose who they were attracted to?
To clarify, I'm not trying to debate if sexual orientation or sexuality is a choice or not, but if someone here did make a conscious choice, I would
love to hear your experience leading up to that choice if you're willing to share.
