THIS SHOULD RUFFLE A FEW FEATHERS BUT, HE HAS A POINT YOU KNOW: 
""Homosexuality is a choice?"

Yes.

"Tell me all about the moment you chose to be straight"

Uh...when all I wanted, was to deal with only women in a intimate relations, kind of way. 
There is no such thing as a gay gene. You choose to be gay, there is no scientific breakthrough that discovered gay genes, you choose to like the same sex. Bisexuality, you choose to like both sexes. (Although I personally don't believe men can be bisexuals, it's either gay or straight). It's all a choice. 

"If I could choose to be straight, I would."

Then why don't you? Start right now. Become straight, right now. 

You don't want to fuck the opposite sex. That's all there is to it. Motherfuckers like to make Shit deeper & more complicated then it actually is, when it is really SIMPLE. Simply a CHOICE. Let's not get emotional, I really don't give a shit how you live you life. I'm comfortable in my choice in being a heterosexual, I have no issues with gay folk. Gay homies (if I had any).

The only thing I understand as a man that stands on his own 2 feet is GREEN $$$

Though friend or not I will use the F - Word, because I can. (Trying not to get reported)

I think Julie Bindel drives home some brilliant points (see Guardian link below).

Genes are just protein-making machines. The popular misconception of music-gene, language-gene, high IQ-gene etc have crept into political discourse now, muddying the situation. There is also this big misconception that biology=genes. Biology includes genetics, epigenetics, environmental factors and a vast array of interactions amongst all of these. As far as scientific expositions go, sexual preference can be influenced by genetics, epigenetics, non genetic biological factors and a myriad of as yet unknown environmental factors. Arguing that a person is gay/lesbian because he/she bears some kind of an active "gay gene", is akin to saying that he/she has a "disease". The argument entails that the rights of the LGBT people to be treated equally as citizens of the world, is granted out of some sort of pity for their "immutable condition" rather than out of a fundamental sense of democracy and respect for human dignity. Also, when the LGBT community hinge their sexual preference to genetic origins of "gayness", they are unknowingly promoting genetic determinism, which ultimately will boomerang on most political minorities within human societies. As societies evolve and human civilisation as a whole become more inclusive and cooperative, it is time for us to ask the big question : What is your problem with some people choosing to be gay ?

"Is there such thing as the "gay gene" ? Or a gene that makes you violent or alcoholic ? 

Read the "Behaviour: from genes to gender" article on the new TVP Magazine issue. An article full of examples, documentaries, videos and documents to back it up.

"An excellent article." - Jacque Fresco

Here's some evidence against the gay gene. Gender identity is still hard wired, but DNA doesn't appear to be the mechanism.

"In the wake of Lady Gaga's new song "Born This Way," there have been several online discussions about the worth of arguing whether queers are biologically determined or not.

I think it's a pointless issue. Whether or not science supports one view or the other, it seems far more imperative to ask: why should biology be the determinant of anyone's right to live, have health care, gain citizenship, get and keep a job and so on (note that I don't include marriage on the list - that's not a right, it's a cultural prescription to which the state has added essential benefits because that is simply the easiest way for capitalism to function via the family unit. Read: taxes and sundry other benefits).


Relying so much on the argument of biology is also bound to bite us in the ass. Even hypothetically speaking: what would happen to us if science, one day, decided that queerness was chosen or that, at the very least, we operated on a sliding scale where neither choice nor biology were fixed and immutable ways of being. I suspect that the carefully constructed house of cards built up by mainstream gays and lesbians who run around earnestly assuring so-called "allies" that really, truly, we really just can't help ourselves, we're really born this way, would come tumbling down around their ears. And they would be left trying to come up with yet another way to prove themselves worthy of the most basic protections.

I don't see straights, who are fine with dipping their toes and other parts into experiments with sexuality, having to defend themselves on the grounds of biology. So why are we so obsessed with the idea that we deserve basic rights only if we can first prove that we were just "born this way"? Why can't we see that talking about being "born this way" also implies a deep and lingering shame about who we are, as if there's something dirty about being "this way," and that we should be merely tolerated? How is it that we place so much emphasis on the (mostly Western) ceremony of "coming out" - which is an enactment of choice - but refuse to even consider that maybe, just maybe, being a particular way isn't permanent or even entirely unconscious or biologically driven? What if desire were really some combination of biology and volition? What if we simply surrendered to the possibility that sexuality is a happily mad and maddening vortex of impulses that we will never really trace to some basic, biological instinct?

It also seems peculiar that gays and lesbians, of all people, should be so eager to embrace a biological explanation of who we are given the dark history of science trying to cure us through institutionalization and/or forcing and ripping apart our physical, biological brains and our minds. The efforts to reverse gayness continue today, with organizations like Exodus International trying to cure us. Instead of either laughing in the face of such idiocy or simply refusing to engage with them and instead ensuring that none of us are subject to their machinations, we choose to get down to their level, get on the defensive, and scream that we are, in fact, "born this way." Why does that even matter? Aren't we simply giving such groups more fodder for their hare-brained campaigns? Don't we have bigger and better issues to fight for? Like, you know, labor rights? Health care? Citizenship that's not simply based on whom you fuck and for how long in a "committed relationship"?

I was reminded of all this when I recently revisited a document I've read a few times in the past, and which seems especially relevant today. "The Gay Gene Will Not Protect You" can be found on the ACT-UP NY website, and it points out that* "[e]arly sexologists supposedly proved 'scientifically' that there were genetically based physical differences between the sex organs of homosexuals and heterosexuals that justified - among other things - incarceration in mental hospitals"* and that "[b]y 1914, to prevent the inheritance of disabilities, 12 states had laws using genetics to justify the sterilization of the developmentally disabled, the blind, the deaf, the 'deformed.'" None of this is new information, yet today's mainstream gays and lesbians persist in turning to scientific explanations to justify their very existence, wilfully forgetting that science has, in the past, chosen to try to obliterate us and other vulnerable populations. And can do so again.

I want to be clear: I'm not against science per se, but "science" is not an essential and immutable, ah, science. Its history is riddled with the worst kind of exploitation of "scientific" facts and has led to the systematic and persistent torture of the most vulnerable among us: the mentally different/disabled, children, women, queers, racial and sexual minorities. When it comes to the issue of sexuality, I think it's time we stopped caring about whether or not people think we're born this way or not."
