    I'm interested to see what you come up with because it's not true.

    My Dearest Nore,

    I don't think ANYONE, gay or str8 has a choice in the matter TBH!

    I am presuming you to be heterosexual here, considering your derogatory remarks about - for some... - for those that have that imbalance... - tend to sway the other way..

    Not even your lovely self, my special, has a choice in their sexuality when you for one, i am sure, are compelled to repeatedly dip your dongle in gangrous axe wounds on a daily basis. . . that's not a choice, that's a trauma

    Would any sane heterosexual male choose this for himself, I think not!

    For an educated man like yourself to be talking about 'chemical imbalances' - where are you stuck my boy, the 20th century, or prior . . .

    I agree it is a heavy burden that they choose for themselves, but IMHO they should just be themselves , and not what they think other people expect of them, then they will have no further burden, and they will find out who their supposed friends are really quickly.

    Chemical imbalances is the attempt to understand ,explain and conceptualize social problems...

    A few decades ago ,everything was based on life/childhood/family traumas shaping your social /mental map...

    Now , especially with the rise of SSRI as the magic bullet against chemical serotonine imbalances, we are trying to explain behaviour purely on a scientific basis..

    The truth is most likey a cocktail of genetics and life experiences.

    :uhoh:



    ...still checking...



    Most gays that I know suffered some sort of abuse in their lives. Mainly sexual abuse. Then they [presumably] made their choice.



    ...narrowing search results...



    :lol:

    Just found this doing a google search:

    Two large studies asked homosexual respondents to explain the origins of their desires and behaviors - how they "got that way." The first of these studies was conducted by Kinsey in the 1940s and involved 1700 homosexuals. The second, in 1970, (4) involved 979 homosexuals. Both were conducted prior to the period when the "gay rights" movement started to politicize the issue of homosexual origins. Both reported essentially the same findings: Homosexuals overwhelmingly believed their feelings and behavior were the result of social or environmental influences.

    In a 1983 study conducted by the Family Research Institute (5) (FRI) involving a random sample of 147 homosexuals, 35% said their sexual desires were hereditary. Interestingly, almost 80% of the 3,400 heterosexuals in the same study said that their preferences and behavior were learned (see Table 1 below).
    Table 1
    Reasons For Preferring:

    homosexuality (1940s and 1970)

    early homosexual experience(s) with adults and/or peers - 22%
    homosexual friends/ around homosexuals a lot - 16%
    poor relationship with mother - 15%
    unusual development (was a sissy, artistic, couldn't get along with own sex, tom-boy, et cetera) - 15%
    poor relationship with father - 14%
    heterosexual partners unavailable - 12%
    social ineptitude - 9%
    born that way - 9%

    heterosexuality (1983)
    I was around heterosexuals a lot - 39%
    society teaches heterosexuality and I responded - 34%
    born that way - 22%
    my parents, marriage was so good I wanted to have what they had - 21%
    I tried it and liked it - 12%
    childhood heterosexual experiences with peers it was the ''in thing" in my crowd - 9%
    I was seduced by a heterosexual adult - 5%

    While these results aren't conclusive, they tell something about the very recent tendency to believe that homosexual behavior is inherited or biologic. From the 1930s (when Kinsey started collecting data) to the early 1970s, before a "politically correct" answer emerged, only about 10% of homosexuals claimed they were "born that way." Heterosexuals apparently continue to believe that their behavior is primarily a result of social conditioning.

    Maybe in certain social circles and family background ,it is very hard to come out..

    I work with a guy who got married , had two kids and came out in his mid thirties.

    Can't be that easy..

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good wardrobe must be in want of a boyfriend with whom to share.

    What if you are attracted to the fatties? Do you have to pig out so you can share the same wardrobe?
