although i find this thread fascinating, its like chewing a piece of gum and fast losing its flavour.
the fact is homosexuality has become very "popular" in the last few years.
i firmly believe being "gay" is a choice, the same as being "straight" is a choice.
saying someone gay was born that way, is like like saying someone was born to be a paedophile.
or can people be born peadophiles ?
can people be born evil murderers ?
i think not, but homosexuality has become acceptable by the masses.
even our prime minister is in favour (should secure another term in office)
anyway i digress.
my point being we are born as boy or girl.
but everyone has a choice in life, and its wrong to take away that choice.
i know i am in a minority with my beliefs.
but i respect everyone's view. so please have some respect for mine.
peace to all retrobikers.
I'm not sure being gay has become popular more that as it becomes more socially acceptable more people are being open about there sexuality and and less likely to live in heterosexual relationships in which they clearly don't belong.
As to we are born either boy or girl, don't forget intersex people who are born with both genitalia some of whom now have to take hormones to keep them into the gender that the medical profession decided they belonged.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
