    Homosexuality

    Is it a choice? I know some people who believe it is and some people who believe it isn't. I've seen evidence to support both sides and I've talked to homosexuals about it but I'm still not convinced either way.

    What do you believe? I would prefer to believe it's a choice but some studies and personal opinions/experiences say different. I know there will be varying circumstances but is homosexuality the choice of the individual or is it something they simply cannot control?

    It's definitely not a "choice", but whether it's 100% nature or 100% nurture is debatable. Like most things in the nature vs. nurture debate, it's probably a mixture of both genetic and environmental factors.

    Re: Homosexuality

    I am 15% homosexual.

    Anyways, homosexuality is not a choice, but choosing to become one is a choice. I can be a homosexual but I choose not to be one. I have some homosexual friends. Most of them are affected by their environment and their friends. They said that they chose to be homosexual because they find it more comfortable to be one (after they have changed and turned into homosexual)

    tl;dr
    Homosexuality is natural, but accepting the fact that you are one isn't.

    I am no way against homosexuals.

    I think some of it is already decided when you're born, but I think the major effect comes from the enviroment in wich you grow up.

    It's not a choice. I sure as hell couldn't just choose who I'm attracted to.

    Re: Homosexuality

    Say this
    Your standing infront of two firls (Im saying if your a hetero guy)
    Anyways, one you find attractive and one, Not so attractive
    Your brain is the one telling you that shes the attractive one
    See, you brain is "Programmed" to like her instead
    Now say your homo or bisexual
    Your brain may be programmed to find somebody, who just happens to be of the same gender, attractive
    That was more of a bisexual explanation
    But for homosexuality, it's more of, your brain is "Programmed" that you only find someone of the same gender for your whole life (Not the same person)
    Thats my view mixed with other views.

    I'm confused. You said it isn't a choice, but then go on to explain how your friends chose to be gay.

    Also I'm sure they didn't have a neutral stance on who they were attracted to when they were younger, and then said "I choose to be attracted to people of the same gender as me." Maybe at some point they realized they were gay and accepted it, but that isn't choosing to be gay. That's choosing to accept the fact that they are already more comfortable being with people of the same sex as them.

    Re: Homosexuality

    Homosexuality is not a choice. Anything you are attracted to is preference. You can't choose what you prefer, and you can't just change it randomly, just like you can't hate a certain genre of music one day and just choose to like it the next. Your preferences change over time on its own, though, and that's natural with anything. There's no way of controlling it. The only thing about homosexuality that is a choice is acceptance. Those who say they choose to be gay probably mean they choose to be open about their homosexuality and accept themselves for who they are. Those who don't accept usually are insecure about it and lash out at other homosexuals in order to suppress their own preference. I have nothing against homosexuality; I know a few people who are openly gay and I don't think it's wrong at all.
