you stated:"As for "being born" gay. Or not having a choice. Sorry. Not buying it nor has it ever been scientifically proven no matter what anyone says."i'm not going to argue. science cannot prove what makes gay people, and so far, that's the only real fact. what i /will/ argue is your suggestion that someone would sit down, at the age of nine or ten and willingly pick something that would make their life completely frustrating from that point onward and then - on top of that - not go back when they see exactly how difficult it is.if it's a choice, i assume that you "picked" heterosexuality. and that it would be pretty easy for you to choose homosexuality, too. so, why haven't you tried it? is it because that entire "lifestyle" would be untenable? for example, you might have figured out that it's too difficult to get child support benefits because you're gay? or maybe you found that it was very difficult for the people at your church to accept you, because you chose to be gay?it cannot be scientifically proven, given what we know at this point in time, but i'm willing to bet money [and i'm not generally the betting sort] that most people would not "choose" to be homosexual, given the absurd level of frustration they would be dealing with for the remainder of their lives.i also want to take a mild amount of time to talk about this:"Just tired of the gay/lesbian community imposing their ideas on me and getting away with it for a select few."gay/lesbian people aren't actually imposing anything on anyone. they're suggesting that if equality is so important, then we really should be treating everyone the same. not have a tiered system where it's "ok to be a next of kin" if you're heterosexual, but not ok if you're gay.imagine for a second what that's like. your wife gets hit by a car and is in an ambulance and you finally figure all this out, only to be told that you "can't see her, because you're heterosexual."all gay people/people of colour/people of various creeds that aren't christianity would like is simple: to be treated with respect and dignity and be viewed as "equals" of the white, male, american person we keep coming back to.
