being gay is not a choice its a natural feeling for the same sex
pedophiles don't choose to be attracted to children as bad as it sounds. people who are attracted to animals can't help it. some people dont choose to fall in love with a family member but it happens.
of course it is possible to ignore your true nature and let society influence your actions (manipulate you into believing that being something out of norm is wrong), but being someone you are not and bidding your true self just because the society expects you to doesn't change your inner characteristics. scientifically you only have one type of sexuality, whatever it might be. and pretence will never change it.
Well even if they ignore it, at the end of the day theyre still gay.
As ReadytoBegin says, are you attracted to those of the same sex and choosing not to act on those feelings? If not, you did not choose to be straight, you just are.
People can not choose who to be attracted to, so they cannot choose to be gay. They can choose to be with someone of the same gender, but to say that this is choosing to be gay is not accurate. Demanding that people who are not attracted to the opposite sex form heterosexuals couples to conform to society is absurd.
You sound like you are contradicting yourself. Your argument says they will just not like it and can be straight, but you say the choice is there. If they do not "like it" they probably are naturally homosexual.
If you believe in your statement than you must agree that heterosexuals choose to be striaght out of convenience in society. Do you?
But the point Dave is that the freedom of choice is there and has been there. You aren't born gay and there is no concrete scientific evidence to support this although people say there is and also give their own personal life experiences claiming they feel they were born gay and that's no difference from a Christian saying they see God every night before bed and know he exists.
For this to be true, those voting agree would have to be sexually attracted to the same sex and be actively ignoring those feelings to pursue heterosexuals relationships. If that is the case, fine. I'd not, you are asserting something that is contradicted by your own experience, which is never a good start to an debate.
Because living a lie is a positive thing is society? Marry that women and when she finds out you have been banging her brother it will be a okay!
