Listen, if you wake up each morning and "choose" to be straight, you're probably bisexual.

Case in point. A Conservative Christian I know on Facebook posted this:

Elizabeth, I myself have chosen to be straight. I make the choice anew all the time. As a human being, this ability to choose (free moral agency) if sown into my being. I believe every human being has some choice regrading their sexuality and their moral stance toward it. In fact, it is dehumanizing to deny that a homosexual has any choice in the matter. That attitude reduces them to just animals or robots controlled by genes or biology. Christians are becoming the ONLY ones in this culture to regard homosexuals as actual human beings with free moral agency. Christianity is the most dignifying worldview toward fellow humans in America today.

2. It's fucking twisted as hell to say that fundies in are in any way

"dignifying" gay people. They probably would say that they dignify women, too, by making them subservient to men. Any belief system that claims to dignify people by degrading them is perverse beyond description.

3. ...

to the Facebook poster ... if one thinks this each morning, they have some real sexual identity issues they need to work through. Most people I know do not think about their sexual orientation each morning when they awake.

5. And 99.99% of us here on this site would have no problem with that(your statement, that is).

 

What I'm saying is, bisexuality can indeed offer a choice, of what gender one might want to get it on with. But it doesn't change the fact that they were born with that predisposition, just like with homosexuality.

I, btw, happen to be "straight", but I didn't make this choice; my genes did that for me. I was born with this predisposition. And no amount of "ex-gay" Fundie agitprop and B.S. can change that. And there's nothing wrong with being straight, gay, lesbian, bi or transsexual. And I'm sure everyone here will agree with that.

6. Wondering how that conversation goes every morning. How come the mirror doesn't ask me to log in

 

"gay or straight" before brushing my teeth?

7. Some people are born straight...

 

some are born gay, and some are born bi. I probably fall into the bi area, I just didn't admit it until I got older and more comfortable with myself. I have never experienced the "other" side, and probably never will. I am married to a woman I have dearly loved for 20 years and would never step out on her. I have zero regrets.

8. Fuck, I've wished most of my adult life that my sexual orientation was a choice

Since I'm polyamorous, the field is both smaller and larger for me. I'm heterosexual but I don't want to be. I have wanted all along to be bisexual. I enjoy looking at women and if allowed, fondling their breasts. I love snuggling with women, more so than men. Women are soft. But, that's as far as my bisexuality goes and that always made me sad.

Every time I heard about those camps to make gays straight, I wanted a camp to make heteros bisexual. Alas, neither would work.

In the last ten years, I've come to peace with my inability to be fully bisexual.

And heck, since the breakup of my last quad, I'm currently choosing asexual. Easy choice as menopause hits. But were I to choose to have sex again, it would be with a male because I'm a heterosexual woman.

Sexual orientation is not a choice. I know it from personal experience!

10. Jesus Christ...

... save me from your followers, please.

I chose NOT to be a Christian. The only sane choice.
