    I think some do and some don't. As to whether most choose it, I can't say either way. Guess I am not much help.

    I think some people are more gay than others. I don't think people have to be definitively gay or straight. The line is blurred with a gray area where some people are inclined to be more attracted to one sex over another. Some people are only attracted to one sex. This is all just a natural fact of human existence.

    i don't think they actually choose it. research has shown that genetics make up part of the reasoning behind it. i think it has become almost fashionable in teen girls but they tend to change as they grow up.

    Most of the gay people I know were molested as children and grew up living a gay lifestyle. So molestation triggered confusion but choosing relationships with same sex as opposed to opposite sex I would have to say is a choice.

    Sexual identity is a sliding scale. Everyone has some small slight inclination of gay in them. Everyone has some small slight inclination of straight in them. The proportions vary depending on the person and how willing they are to acknowledge their genetics. Some people produce testosterone in greater quantities than estrogen, but both are produced. The link between those 2 and sexual identity has been strongly supported by science.

    I point to Roman culture as the example. The Roman aristocracy believed that sex with women was for procreation and recreation. True love could only be found between men.

    Some people lean so far one way or the other that they find the opposite absolutely unthinkable.

    Lesbianism is put on a pedastal in our culture for young women, so it's not surprising that some people that aren't naturally more inclined to it would indulge in it by choice. Others are absolutely 100% opposed to heterosexual intercourse. Some so much so that they voluntarily have surgery to become the opposite sex.

    So in summation, some do choose it, but I'd highly doubt that "most" do. Gay men are one of the most discriminated against in our society. I can't see someone choosing that for themselves.

    I believe sexuality and preference is on a continuum...people will fall somewhere on this line. Most people are on the straight end of the continuum, there are others that will be closer to the middle, and then those of us on the gay/lesbian end. Being gay is not a choice (acting on it is)...it is a feeling, an attraction, a desire. Some of us are comfortable with this feeling and others of us try to quell it because of fear, shame, embarrassment, etc. Anyway...that's my 2 cents...definitely not a choice (and I'm glad because I'm absolutely fine with it)!

    I certainly believe that people does not choose this lifestyle. Why? because depending on their experience with the same sex, they are just doing what satisfies them. some people does it for fun& some people have a hard time figuring out whether or not who they are based on their sexual orientation. my answer to this question is No.
