Where are you getting your info? Are you going back and forth on sex or just peeking through other peoples windows? Don't talk about things you have not personally seen, otherwise its called gossip. There is no choice in whether you are gay or straight, if I threatened you with harm if you did not go to bed with the same sex, could you????? Gays feel disgust at the thought of sex with the opposite sex just as straights feel disgust at the thought of going to the same sex. You rely on scientists to study and come up with cures or medicine for diseases and believe them when you get a flu shot or anything medical to save your life but you won't believe the same scientific research done that says gays are born gay. So, don't believe the latter, don't do any of the former because you just can't trust those scientist to be correct in their findings. Just rely on god to heal you and cross your fingers.

Yes, bisexual and it's not just a choice to be sexually attracted to someone. You either are, or you aren't. If you are a male, then you did not choose to be attracted to your wife... the chemicals in your body told you that you were sexually attracted to her A. because she is female and B. because you like her as a person. If what you are saying is a closed case, then if you are a male yourself, you are also attracted to the opposite sex, but you "choose" to not act upon it. That is not the case I'm sure..... and that is "Case Closed".

correction...if what you say is true....if you yourself are a male, then that means that you are attracted to the *same sex, and you choose not to act on it.

I used to work in theater and have meet innumerable gays not one of them ever said they chose to be gay.

So in short your post is just more made up BS from a ignorant godbot.

But that's OK because all godbots are the same, you all say:-
"You are not like me therefore I hate you."

For some believers it's a case of "you are not like me, therefore, I kill you".

After all, they're the ones whose holy book contains instruction to kill people.

lol....why must I be on drugs? I don't think that it takes scientific evidence to conclude that your statement that it's just a choice must be false. If so then you being straight would mean that you "could be attracted to the same sex", but you "choose" not to be.

Nicely put

If it was a choice (and judging by the seething rants from the xtians - a serious one) why didn't the bible god list it under his many "Thou shalt not's"?

When it comes to killing, stealing, what god to worship, keeping slaves, what food to eat, what clothes to wear, etc; the god of the bible tells his believers just what choice to make.

He does not do this in matters of homosexuality.

Why?

Because a person's sexuality is not a choice.

I wonder at what point in his deluded life did antiatheist choose not to be gay?

There is no scientific evidence for being born "straight" or "gay". You have no argument except for, "some" People think its choice and some people think a person is born that way.

It's in my opinion that they are born that way, and I base that on the fact that many many many people will say that they, even as a child, felt an attraction to the same sex.

I personally felt an attraction to females even before I knew what a lesbian was, or what being bisexual meant.

You can be opinionated on this matter, but when it comes down to it, religious or not, it's not your place to track the reasoning down, nor even care as to what a persons sexual preferences are.

So why do you?

Because some gay people cannot admit to themselves that they are gay. They date, sometimes they marry, sometimes even have kids. Some eventually reach a point where they can't keep up the denial any more, and they come out. Some knew all along that they were gay, but felt they couldn't deal with bigots like you, so they hid who they were. Perhaps even a closet case like yourself will reach a point where you can't lie to yourself anymore.
