alasta:Teeps: Did you choose your hair colour? Being gay isn't a lifestyle choice it is how I am, it is part of me just as the colour of your hair is part of you.
Homosexuality is a behaviour, not a physical attribute. I would have considered it to be tantamount to someone's choice of whether to drink, go to church, etc.
I'm not saying it's a harmful behaviour, but the suggestion that people are not responsible for their own lifestyle choices has dangerous implications in my view.
Well did you choose to be straight? Did you wake up one day and go "mmmm gonna eat me some carpet today"? Didnt think so. Just like we gays just know we're gay.
