    Default When did you choose to be straight?

    As above.

    How old were you? What made you choose heterosexuality? Why didn't you consider being gay instead?















    See how ridiculous this notion is?

    I have never asked anyone this question. If someone is gay I don't wonder why or whether they 'chose' it or assume they had some sort of personal struggle over it. It's just them, just like having brown hair or being good at the guitar. A person is a person, I don't get too hung up on the details.

    Exactly this. Just because some people think that way, doesn't mean everyone does .

    I have always felt that attraction comes from within us and is not goverened by our own decissions. I am attracted to both men and women and dated a few women when I was younger but it just so happened that the person I wanted to settle down with was a man.
    I fully support gay marriage and think the law needs to be passed but I also think it is great that society and technology have come so far that it is now possible for gay and lesbian couples to have children... something that (without sex outside your relationship) not to long ago was out of reach. I am lucky to live in a world that if I had fallen in love with a woman I would not have been giving up the chance to have children to be with her.

    There is never a point where the choice is made, I developed certain feelings for certain people and that's just how the pendulum swung.

    I gave it some thought. My best friend from primary school and early highschool liked girls so I was curious I guess about my feelings about boys.

    But I didnt choose. Nor did she. But I guess I gave my sexuality some thought rather than just assuming im straight.

    Though one time she asked me to describe 'my perfect woman' and I tried to imagine what I would look for in a girl and when I got to the end of my description my friend said 'rach, you just reinvented a man' lol. Fail. So no. My sexuality was totally involuntary - I like men. Even in 'what if?' land.
