Is this a subtle pretext for you to come out of the closet Winston? Are you finally ready to admit what we've all known for a while? :lol:

LOL hell no. There is no logical reason to suspect such a thing, and zero evidence to support it. No gay guy is as crazy about girls as I am!

How do you know this? What about all the evidence to the contrary? Have you ever known anyone who went back from gay to straight? Why do all gay men say that they didn't want to be gay but could not resist it?

Sexual urges aren't a choice. They are instinctive to all life.

I've had this conversation with a few people who say people are that way. NO! It's a choice. I have a co-worker who openly admitted that he knows he's not supposed to be homosexual but he is because of his own personal reasons. There you go. It's a choice. I worked with a girl while in college who was a lesbian and she confessed to two of my other co-workers that she didn't want to be gay anymore. They said she was very emotional about it. So there you go again. She made the choice to be gay. It wasn't innate. Just like eurobrat said everything we do in life is a choice.

People will argue that they are born like that but I've always asked, how can they be born that way when they can't reproduce? There's no way it could be genetically inherited.

From what I have read, it is like this- a default human is a female and then, while a fetus is in the womb, some hormones are secreted to turn it into a male if need be. The fetus is androgynous and has both characteristics. If it becomes a female it keeps a small penis- the clit and the scrotum becomes the labia, and the male keeps nipples and a scar on the scrotum where the vagina was supposed to be located.
The thing is in a natural non stress environment, the fetus becomes one sex or another with appropriate characteristics both physical and emotional. If it is high stress, then it suppresses the production of the hormone and creates confusion.
When I was with the T'boli tribe in Mindanao, I noticed that they had no lesbos and no gays in it. Like zilch. The same goes for all people who live a natural stress free life.
Once there is some artificial stress through wars or urban life, such people are born.
However, when their numbers get large, they can subvert other people into it by promoting the lifestyle. Then those others make "the choice".

This is very interesting and it goes against the "rule" that 10% of the population is gay. I personally don't know if sexuality is nature or nurture & I doubt there's any gays on happierabroad as it's about going overseas for a wife, not a husband!

I know a girl who has 2 kids and got divorced, trust me it's a choice or else she would have never had 2 kids in the first place.


Why should we trust you in a matter that you are not an expert and have done no research in? How can you be so sure about something you've done no research in? Does guessing = fact to you?

Totally illogical.

You can't be so sure about something you've done no research in.

Did you watch the videos posted above? Watch them first and then comment.

Why do all major organizations and medical/scientific establishments say that you are wrong?

Sometimes nature screws up? Nature is not perfect.

If she didn't want to be a lesbian, then why did her sexual urges make her a lesbian and go against her will? That doesn't make sense.

I don't see any evidence or logical reason why it's a choice and not in the genes.

Why would gays say that their sexual orientation is hardwired if they aren't?

It could be the result of either or, in some cases, neither.

I think that sexuality is the result of conditioning or early experiences. If a child is aroused by a member of the same sex early on, it might wire the child's brain to be homosexual later.

Also, some people are simply open to trying a homosexual lifestyle due to boredom, disillusionment with the opposite sex, and feminism (dare I say). Feminism tells women that women are better, and it tells men that being like women is better.

Pretty much. Homosexuality has also been observed all throughout the animal kingdom. I doubt animals choose to be gay one day. I read somewhere that homosexuality might be a biological mechanism that prevented excess population growth.

The only exception to homosexuality being genetically determined is abuse and trauma. People who have experience sexual abuse/trauma in their childhood can develop homosexuality and/or a warped view of sex.
