If we make this an argument based in logic then NO being straight is not a preference and being gay IS. Here is why
People love to make sex about the pleasures we get from it, but the primary
function of sexual activity is to REPRODUCE. To carry on and sustain the human race. But one thing that we all know, that CANNOT be argued, is that it takes a male sperm and a female egg to reproduce a human being. Therefore the attraction betweena male and a female is inherently natural, because it serves the intended purpose of reproduction.
On the other hand, we have never seen nor will we ever see a baby born from two sperm or two eggs. Homosexual couples can have babies through adoption, surrogacy, artificial insemination etc., but the fact remains that it MUST be a male sperm and a female egg. Therefore the attraction between two women or two men is inherently unnatural because it does not serve the intended purpose of reproduction.
I dont have any problem with homosexuals and I believe they should have the same rights any other couple has. They should be able to get married, share assets, and have visitation rights. I think they should be able to live a life free of any kind of discrimination or violence against them just because of who they love. But then again I think these are just basic human rights that everyone should enjoy.
But at the end of the day and on until the end of the next morning and through that afternoon and evening, I see a lot of kids that have yet to go through puberty but have already committed themselves to someone of the same sex. Which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
And that is why I lean
toward sexual preference being a choice. And I say lean, because there is a very small gray area in which sexual assignment at birth is disrupted, which can lead to complications down the road. But that gray area is not nearly a big as some people try to make it seem.
Those are my thoughts on the subject. You dont have to agree with me as I dont always agree with all of you, but I will respect your opinions and expect the same in return.
