You can't choose whether to be gay or straight anymore than you can choose if you're a girl or a boy. It's not like gays can change the way they are, why would they want to. Go ask a gay why they're gay (WARNING you will probably get punched)

Actually, probably not. You might get an answer like:"I got bitten by a spider. I have the proportionate gayness of a really gay spider."

People don't choose to be gay. They just feel attracted to the same gender. Why are some people straight?

It's just what they are attracted to.
They can't help it, same for straights, bis, pans ect.

It is a choice you can't be born like that cause when your born you're brain isn't just like "I'm gay". When your born all you know is goo goo gah gah, so you know nothing when you're born that's why homosexuality is a choice. And so is heterosexuality

Nobody wants to be gay. Nobody wants to be bullied and abused and discriminated against. Get the idea that "it's a choice" out of your mind NOW.

You can't help falling in love. Gay people happen to fall in love with people of the same sex. Bisexuals fall in love with females and males. They didn't choose it, and it's not how they were raised, because most gay people are raised by straight parents.

There are some clues and connections that the attraction to the same sex is part See More▼

It's how you are born. If you were born Homosexual than you physically cannot feel any kind of romantic or sexual relation with anyone other than your own gender. It's that way for every sexuality. I'm Pansexual, but if it were a choice I would be Heterosexual.

If God made everyone, do you think that maybe he made some people gay because it was a test to see who would treat everyone with love like 99% of the bible states, or who would use things in his book against him. You should love everyone!

That is a beautiful sentiment.

It's the way you are born, you can't help it, and you normally find out a bit later in life when you come to the natural age of selecting a partner and stuff.

Because they were born that way. Everyone who thinks being gay is a choice, IT'S NEVER A CHOICE! I'm panromantic. I would give ANYTHING to be hetero. I wish to be with all of my being. Why are you all hetero? It's not your choice, you just are.

Ok, here's what I have to say: Being gay is not a choice but it's not assigned to you, either; it's how you feel.

There is more. Again, not a choice. People don't 'want to be' gay, it's how they were born, is this really such a difficult concept to grasp?

Well I meant it's just how they are, not because they chose it... They just happened to be be gay like some people happen to be blonde or happen to like tacos. You can't help it... It just is.

Being gay and junk has to do with the brain. It's not a choice, nor does it mean that the person has an issue. It's just how their brain is. It doesn't mean they're anything less than anyone else. Being gay is found all throughout the animal kingdom, so don't think it's only humans that are gay.
