Or a far simpler argument: People have committed suicide due to the hatred and oppression they have dealt with for being gay. If it is a choice, then why not "choose" to be straight"? Do these people really think that given suicide or switching over, they would still kill themselves?

Such a simple question! And it has an absolutely easy answer.
If homosexuality is truly a choice then it can be changed. And if it can be changed you'd think that those who've made a business of it, and been leaders in the attempt to change gay to straight, would be able to provide examples of success.
However, the head of the leading ex-gay group Exodus International, a man by the name of Alan Chambers, has admitted very publicly that you can't make a gay person straight no matter what method they try. And they've tried for years and years!

You haven't disproved anything either. Prove that it is not a choice of who you are or are not attracted to.
You've already proven that sexuality is not a choice. You yourself said that you "chose" to be heterosexual because you were attracted to members of the opposite sex. In your bizarro world, you "chose" to be attracted to the sex you were already attracted to (LOL on your sad definition of the word 'choice')

Thus you have already admitted that the gender a person is attracted to is inherent and not a choice.

Thanks for making the argument for us!
