Were You Born Gay? (VERY ROUGH of ESSAY ATTACHED)

Please, disregard the title. I am writing my final paper for English class, I would like to talk about sexuality. Personally, I believe that one isn't born gay, and I was just wondering if you guys could voice your opinions on the issue, and answer the poll, it is greatly appreciated.

---I have a veryyyyyy rough draft of the essay attached, please feel free to offer feedback and criticism.

Re: Were You Born Gay?

No, I don't think so. I was attracted to some girls at least until the 5th grade. After I discovered gay porn (in the 5th grade), my attraction towards them (girls/women) diminished.

This. That bolded part

Once puberty hit me, I'm only sexually attracted to guys...

I don't understand the hostility. His question is perfectly reasonable.

No, it's not a reasonable question.

Why, exactly, isn't it reasonable?

Re: Were You Born Gay?

Why does it matter if someone is born gay or not?

He's writing a paper discussing sexuality. An important question concerning sexuality is whether or not it is fixed at birth. Why do you think that question is unreasonable?

Re: Were You Born Gay?

you're right. I don't think the question is unreasonable; I think that the stance that people are not born gay is unreasonable. That is what I was in contention with in my first two posts. You confused me.

I actually think that's true for some people. But just because some people are not born gay, it doesn't follow that they had any choice in the matter.

I don't understand what you mean by this.

If the person wasn't born gay, then I do not consider him or her to be gay. He or she is something else.

Agree with some similar post. Puberty was when it all changed.

Umm...

I don't think I was born gay but I also know that I didn't make a conscious choice to be only attracted to men. But I can guarantee that I am gay.

An analogy: I wasn't born 5'8" tall. I didn't make a conscious choice to be 5'8" tall. Yet, I am 5'8" tall.
