When did you choose?


Sexuality. When did you choose? Were you young? Old? After an interesting experience, or a disturbing one? My belief is that if one states that sexuality is a choice, then it is one they have obviously had to make - to be straight, or to be gay. So, I'm looking to see when people made their choices, cause I'm curious. I am aiming to write a hub, because whilst we can all say "it is" or "it isn't" there is no proof other than anecdotal evidence one way or the other. REGARDLESS of the results, I will write the hub (i just need some answers people). Please do not derail the question however.

    Moon Daisy - thank you for your thoughtful answer. What I am hoping to do is get people to think about it, regardless of the side they sit on, and consider it without the threat of debate. Thank you for your answer (not long at all!)

    Perhaps that is where the choice in the matter lies - whether to act upon it or not. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks - your point that, whatever our inclinations, we choose our behavior and even how we direct our ttention and feelings is a good one. I am married. When my eye wanders, I sometimes just enjoy it, and others bring the energy home to my wife.

    John - thanks for your answer. Perhaps you should make a site that does let you choose 'both" as an option!?

    CantU - thank you for your answer. I like the way you thought about it.

    I guess, what I want to do is get people to think about it - both sides of the argument - to look into the other side.

    Thank you for answering!
