A far more learned member than myself stated:
Ask a closeted gay teenager if they're terrified of coming out of the closet at high school, and if their decision to find the same sex attractive is a conscious decision.My layman's corollary to that:
2. Look at an assortment of gay females and sometimes you can see a definite difference in physical appearance, bone structure, and body type from their peers.
As a straight scientist, I firmly believe that there is a genetic biological component to homosexuality and we just haven't mapped it out yet.
Homosexuality is far more than the sexual act. Just as is heterosexuality. It is the chemical/emotional attraction to the specific gender.What do you think...and why?
The very definition of choice implies that one could feasibly go in either direction. In other words, those here who state unequivocally that it is a choice, must then posit [to be logically consistent] that they at a certain age decided that they would be more attracted to women than men. Being a choice, they can then decide to be chemically and emotionally attracted to men at any other time in their life.
I don't know about anyone else, but I've always been emotionally and physically attracted to women. There was never a choice in the matter for me.
