I chose my sexuality no more than I chose who my parents were or what my eye colour is or how many siblings I had. I didn't choose at all.
In fact, I don't even know that I am straight. The might woman might come along and I could find myself falling in love with her. I consider myself straight because I've never fallen in love with a woman, or had romantic/sexual feelings for a woman... but it could happen, for all I know.
I actually, personally believe, that most people are on a sliding scale of bisexuality... where very few are "completely" gay or straight.
I would consider myself completely straight lol not bc I'm adverse to the idea of being with a woman, just that I have absolutely no interest in being with one, either sexually or a relationship. Totally a zero on the scale here
I didn't choose to be straight, natural instinct for a male to be attracted to a female and vice versa. Its not something I had to stop and think about.
Lambjam, I believe asexuality is an 'orientation' more than a 'lack of orientation'.
But like Ana said, takes many forms. No attraction whatsoever, platonic attraction but not sexual...I read a fantastic article on asexuality in my uni's Queer edition of the magazine.

I later (and now) identify as Pansexual, my ability to be atracted physically to someone does not depend on presented gender or physical sex (whats between the legs so to say) but rather just what I find atractive and that ranges from male, female, Androgynous, gender queer, FTM and MTF etc etc although I am mostly atracted to "pretty boys" and "butch girls" or people of indeterminable gender (androgynous people like Davey from AFI)
Thanks for sharing Nemmi I never knew about Pansexual. Very interesting
