He isn't gay in fact he's one hell of a ladies man. His parents would tell him he would have no choice in the matter he was going to be gay and like it. My friend didn't like that lifestyle his dads had and decided he doesn't want to end up like them and tell his kids why they don't have a mother.
Your using an example of opinion there, that it incredibly different. This is a sexual feeling, you've got to be sexually attracted to your gender, really try it, I promise that you won't succeed.
No offense but just saying it's not a choice and come up w/ a excuse to make it sound like being gay is natural really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. People who commit suicide because of that are being told by other people that you have no choice and start to believe them then eventually when they are so in the dumps they kill themselves because of that. You have a free will. The choice on how you want to run your life is up to you. You always always have a choice.
You have a choice about what you do, not about your sexual feelings, to all males here: do you choose when you get your erections? Using Zaraki's logic you should be able to. And read some of the storys about those people who kill themselves, and try to bring some respect into it, I don't know anyone who has done it and your remarks still offend me. You used the word natural, I should point out the existence of gay animals when the word natural is flown about.
I talked about the people who have killed themselves, but I have said nothing about those who didn't. People have been thrown out of their houses, discriminated against, and killed. If they had a choice, what do you think that they would have chosen.
The gay and bi friends I have say it's a choice. They have chosen that kind of lifestyle because they do feel comfortable with it. They have tried being w/ the opposite and doesn't work out for them. Then they decided maybe they could do better with the same.
They have tried being with the opposite and they don't feel attracted to them. Sexual preference is not about comfortability, its about a sexual feeling (if I haven't said it enough). Ask your friends whether they choose who they are attracted to.
