The claim has been made that one chooses to be heterosexual or homosexual. Therefore it seems reasonable to ask the very obvious question of when did folks here voluntarily choose the sex they are physically attracted to. The question seems very straightforward to me.

My guess is the reason a lot of others aren't responding or don't see the question as straightforward is they don't accept the basic assumption. The basic assumption, as I read it, is that everyone has to make a choice, both homosexuals and heterosexuals.

I think I've read at least three different options:

1. A human is born heterosexual and must choose to "change" to homosexual

2. A human is born either a heterosexual or a homosexual and choice is not involved

3. A human is born neither heterosexual or homosexual and must make a choice at some point

My guess, and it's only a guess, is that most people believe either 1 or 2.

I could post a poll to see, but someone would just go to some other board and invite people to come over and distort the results.
