People need to understand the difference between "choosing to act on homosexual impulses" and "having homosexual impulses in the first place". You can choose not to suck dick, that doesn't mean you aren't still attracted to dicks.

You know, it's possible that at least one person out there decided to be homosexual. That doesn't make it a choice for everyone though, but when it comes to humans, there's always the outliers.

What was most likely going on is that the gentleman in the class was trying to explain an argument, based on facts and studies, that maybe, possibly, being homosexual might be a choice.

Your opinions on the matter notwithstanding, I pictured this scene in my minds eye and laughed. There the poor guy stood, trying to explain a reasonable though unpopular argument to a group of hostile classmates, and this bitch gets in his face, with no argument whatsoever other than "WELL BE GAY RITE NOW LOL."

with the Tumblr poster's moron logic, the guys argument is destroyed, simply because you can't argue with someone who won't debate with studies and facts - and instead decides to base her entire argument on the decision of one person.
Victory for homosexuality against bigotry? Probably not. Victory for morons against thoughtful discussion of psychological issues? Probably.

The example is a bit retarded. The brain is a complex biochemical system, you cannot expect to change it in a second. However, why would it not be possible to change orientation over a longer period of time? We can change our brains in many different ways, so changing orientation shouldn't be an impossible task.

Of course one would have to genuinely want to do this, and it is not just as simple as "well I'm gay and everyone mocks me so I want to be straight", because you would most likely - in the environment you live in - still be getting signals encouraging your current orientation, which would probably override any counter measures.

It could be for example, that in our sensitive childhood our orientation is created, and as we grow older we tend to embrace it both consciously and unconsciously, resulting effectively in an equilibrium.

Therefore I think it could be fair to suggest that orientation can be changed, only not in a natural environment. It would require strict conditions (e.g. lack of stimulus encouraging old behavior, strong encouraging stimulus for wanted behavior) for a long period of time, and strong genuine willingness from the subject.

The argument of the OP in the post is a fallacy. It's like if someone said that murdering someone is not a choice because you would not do it when asked. I don't want in any way to compare murder to being gay. It's just that the fact, that you may not able to understand the influences that make you attracted by men or women (wether those influences are social or more psychologically rooted), doesn't mean at all that you have no choice on the matter of accepting those influences. I could decide that I'm attracted by men, but to do so I would have to sacrifice some parts of my personnality. The sexual orientation is a choice even if you have predisposition that makes one option more natural and easy. In conclusion, there is absolutly nothing bad about being gay, but it's a choice. Some people may argue that it's not a choice because you're only adding difficulty to your life when you choose that option; so why would anyone choose to be gay? I think that people decides to be gay because the difficulties that come with such a choice are not as bad as the difficulties that come with choosing to modify their personnality so they would be attracted by the opposite sex. I think that believing in free will is something that you need to extand to every aspect of life, including sexual orientation. For me, there is only two options: you have always the choice (except for defying natural law, like gravity, etc) or you have never the choice and life is the result of some determinism. STOP! GET ON THE FLOOR! EVERYBODY WALK THE DINOSAUR!

if sexual orientation was a choice, i'd be gay just to work at victoria's secret, then halfway through my first day, become straight again for some fun.

then i'd become jewish, black, a woman, and a manager of a movie theater

Sexual orientation isn't black and white, straight or gay. For **** sakes the theory of evolution supports the fact that no, orientation isn't a choice and yes there are more than two options.

Even if it was a choice, I still don't see a problem.

I'm so sick of people arguing over this topic. If you want to be gay alright. Long as you don't go into McDonald dressed in a full slave outfit with a leash on, i see any problem.

"If people are choosing to be gay, then conversely people must choose to be straight.

if you're a guy who feels like they are choosing to be straight, guess what?

you're gay."

People need to understand they aren't born with it either. You can get some genetic predisposition towards it but that only helps slightly. It is formed from a persons experiences and their environment. It's like people who kill cats, they weren't born with it but were molded into it to where that's a logical and acceptable thing to do. The difference in cat killing and homosexuality is the public's opinion on it. It's also comparable to certain kinds of foods. Some people like Broccoli and some don't based off their taste buds preference and their experience with it. With some time and conditioning however you can learn to love or hate broccoli, the same thing is true about being homosexual.    
   
tl;dr: don't be a douche bag who thinks you were born with it, you sound just as ignorant as people who think it's 100% your choice whether you enjoy packing fudge or not. It is a mental state which every person gets molded in

I disagree one hundred percent. Let me tell you a couple of stories.

There is a little girl across the street from the house I grew up in. She's about twelve now. Since she has been able to speak, and since she has been able to dress herself, she has known she was a girl. Told everyone she is a girl. Dressed like, acted like, and been a girl. She was born a boy. And if you want to ******* tell me it was her parents, stop that ******** in the bud because she has four older brothers that are "normal".

I have a friend whom I've known for a very long time. He dated girls, did the regular high school guy kind of thing, and it never felt right to him. The attraction was just not there. Ever. And it never would have been. He didn't choose to be gay. He just realized it. You absolutely CANNOT choose to be straight, just as straight people cannot choose to be gay. Think it was his parents, or his life experience? His dad tried to tell him they'd "fix it". He wouldn't come out to his mom until after an important surgery because he was afraid she'd delay it until he agreed to be straight.

Don't pretend to know **** about sexuality. All of you who judge or make statements about it don't know diddly **** . I'd like to hear a gay person comment on these for once. It's like when I tell people I'm a buddhist and they tell me I must believe in god because I'm buddhist. They have no perspective, and it is horribly ignorant. The best part is that they believe it. Just like people like you.

Why can't people stop with this **** ? Seriously? What others do and who they love does not affect you.

It's a mix of both. No single definite answer.
