Bigoted Christianity is a choice.

Orientation is not.

I know Republicans have to talk stupid so stupid people will vote for them but, shouldn't there be some kind of limit on how stupid they go?

The ONLY difference between "stupidity" and "intelligence" is that there are limits to intelligence.

First off, most gay men have ZERO interest in straight men for relationships of any meaningful kind.

Secondly, since you're obviously VERY anti-gay, what about yourself are you so in hate with that you have to threaten violence on someone when the action you are attempting to defend yourself against isn't even happening???

You can't "gay" someone. You either ARE gay or you are not. Just like you either ARE heterosexual or you are not. Some people are bisexual, also, and that, too, is not a choice for them. People are who they are and NOTHING anyone can do for, to or despite others will change who they are.

You will be forcibly recruited into the gay lifestyle and we'll turn you into a Catholic priest !

So it's ok for a woman to kick a guy in the crotch if he dares to make a pass at them?

Civilized people deal with the situation by saying something like, "Sorry, but I'm not interested."

Being homosexual or not is definitely a choice for sexually disordered, closet case politicians. A hard choice. But politics is all about hard choices....

Okay, so you just want to blow your partner. That is a valid preference. No need to protest so much about the kissing thing, although your desire to avoid kissing your dates could indicate some intimacy issues....

Just trying to be helpful.

And men in showers have the choice to point at your endowment and laugh. What's your point?

Was there a time in your life when you decided you liked girls and not boys? Did it take a long time for your body and mind to become aroused by naked women instead of naked men?

I really don't think you are as stupid as your post implies. Your sexual attraction is the way you are; just as my sexual attraction is the way I am. This is a point that has convinced a lot of heterosexual people, even ones uncomfortable around effeminate gay men.

YOU NEVER MADE A CHOICE. NEITHER DID I.

The crazy thing is I always wonder about people who try to peddle this "choice" gambit. Like I said I don't think you're that stupid and if you think about it why would a guy tell you he made a choice to like women?

Even non-bigoted Christianity is a choice. One has to choose to follow Christ and believe in God, having homosexual feelings is not chosen.

If we have to answer to God so does he, everyone does. He's not any more special than the rest of us. He's judging us and he is not God. He is just a man.

You are obviously overestimating your ability to attract a member of the same sex. Those with microphallatosis usually do, it's not really your fault.

Why would a gay man be attracted to you enough to want to kiss you? You must be quite a stud.
