    You can speak for yourself, though.
    You got that right.

    Do you have the 'Gay Gene'?
    And, yet, you claim, in post #30, to have made a choice to be heterosexual when you, and I quote, "...could comprehend the difference between right and wrong." So, which is it? Is it genetically hardwired, or did you make a choice?

    It did though. I was pushed to be heterosexual my whole life. My parents and friends always wanted me to have a girlfriend, as a jock I was expected to take a girl to homecoming in high school, etc. Always being asked by relatives when I was going to get a girlfriend...heterosexuality was always pushed on me. Nobody asked me what I wanted. But you know, I was a varsity athlete and clearly I was expected to be heterosexual.

    So was that wrong? I have to assume you'll say yes.

    My dad always tells a funny story at family gatherings- He says, "My straight son sings in a choir, my gay son plays hockey. How did that happen?" It took a long time to get to joke about that stuff. But the fact is, heterosexuality was definitely pushed on me.

    So was that wrong ?

    People usually do the best they can with their kids. When they know better, they do better.

    So yes, leekohler's parents were inadequate and they hurt him and that's wrong. But it sounds like he felt loved and that they learned to do better.

    If so, that's not wrong. That's just human.

    I don't believe that. Do you have a link and not just an opinion?

    Sure. It's the conclusion in the Kinsey studies and Masters & Johnson confirmed.

    Orientation is a spectrum, so a person who had ever even fantasized about both genders would be "a little bit bisexual".

    Offhand, I can't name a textbook on human sexuality that delves into this, but I can look around for one if you like.

    A straight man may like women but he could make a choice to sleep with men.

    A gay man could like men but make a choice to sleep with women.

    A man could sleep with women for any number of reasons or men for any number of reasons.

    Alas, sexual orientation is hardwired. Not even torture can change it.
    So why then do so many straight people try to take the stupid way out by saying that it can be changed one just has to wonder?

    Americans are the most neurotic people on earth when it comes to sex. Half the population at any given time seems to be in the throes of a panic attack about sex.

    Usually, about the sex someone ELSE might be having.

    We're immune to violence, that's always great.

    But sex is like kryptonite to us.
