Question Do you think it's possible for a gay person to turn a straight person gay?

I read a magazine article that talked about that and I totally think it's not possible. Straight is straight and gay is gay so I can't even see a gay person turn like some of the straight guys at my school gays. The jocks especially would probably kick your butt if you tried. The article said that it doesn't like happen real fast but the gay person can slowly turn the straight person gay just like kinda convincing them by making them think thaty being gay like seems really cool and exciting. What do you guys think?

I think it's possible...it depends a lot on the person you want to turn, there are some boys who are so ambiguous and you can´t know if they´re gay or not!It's certain that it would be very difficult to make someone gay in one night if they have not any gay inclination...but with the time you can convince anyone,just making them feel loved.

why wouldn't that be possible? What about all those bi people then? I don't see any reason why that would be totally impossible.

You guys I was talking about straight people not bisexuals. I just think that let's say a gay guy liked a straight guy then it would be totally impossible for the gay guy to turn the straight guy gay because the straight guy has only liked girls
and would never even think of being with a guy. To me it's just impossible. If the gay guy was able to turn the straight guy gay then the straight guy was never straight to begin with.

It all depends what your view on your sexuality is i guess. To me part of it comes with the genes or so, but another part is how you got through your childhood, what you experienced as a kid. So in my opinion it is possible that someone changes from gay to hetero or viceversa because of strong feelings or experiences in your life. But what do i know lol.

But what if you fall in love with that gay guy and take the plunge and have a relationship with him? Then don't you become at least bisexual?

OMG, it's complicated

I totally agree with Poe. I'm not attracted to females in the least, but there are some girls that I have totally fallen for. And, I think that I might handle being with them. Even though I'm gay. So, I think it's possible for a str8 person to fall in love with someone of their own sex, but like Poe, I don't think it would make them gay.

no, definetly not. if a gay guy turned a straight guy "gay", then he probably wasn't "straight" in the first place...i think that that person must have already been a least bisexual to begin with, in order to recognize such an attraction. i don't think anyone's 100% one or the other anyway though, so based on that theory, i think it is possible for anyone to find a strong connection with anyone of any gender.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

wow, good question.

If a gay guy can turn a straight guy to like/love a guy, then that means that a straight girl can turn a gay guy to like/love her.
Meaning that a straight guy can turn a lesbian to a straight girl...further to complicate things, a straight girl might fall in love with a gay guy, who was a straight guy, who know became gay guy, who now became stairght.

There are women who were only with men for about 20 years and those men treated them bad, left them for another women or whatever they did but the point is they are tired of them and then they met a women who makes them feel comfortable again and so they start a relationship with her. are these women suddenly gay or bi or is it just the situation of life who put them in to it?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
