  • I think it is a choice, but one that they have made by feeling they were made that way. My husband's cuz is gay, but he has alot of dad issues. I think it boils down to that. My husband's sister is gay, but she got asked out by a guy a few years ago and I have never seen her happier. so you tell me!!

  • It is a choice. If it were a "fluke of nature", you would see homosexual animals, which does not happen. I think there are many physical, emotional, and psychological traumas that cause people to believe that they were born that way, but they were not.

  • They Have Actually Done Studies on the brains of homosexuals and heterosexuals and have found that a certain part of the brain in the homosexuals is actually bigger then that of heterosexuals. They found this to be true in most homosexuals. It is not a Choice. Why would anyone choose to be dicriminated against? Why would anyone choose to be hated and hazed? This is not a Choice.

  • I think it depends on the person. For some it's a choice and for some it's just natural.
