Skip to comments.Yes, Gay is a Choice. Get Over It.

Crystal Dixon of the University of Toledo was fired for writing an editorial in a local newspaper. She referred to Exodus and mentioned people who chose to leave the gay lifestyle.
The case against Dixon is based purely on wild assumption that gay men cannot stop themselves from having anal sex or engaging in fellatio.
These assumptions bestialize and infantilize gay men.
Dixon said that gays had the choice to leave the lifestyle (in other words, stop engaging in anal sex and fellatio). According to her detractors, such was tantamount to being anti-gay. Her detractors are following the lead of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which lists "conversion therapy" as a hate crime.
[snip] I went from being in the gay lifestyle to marrying a woman, having a daughter, and living a happy heterosexual life.
Consider the difference that twenty years make. Twenty years ago, I had never been with a woman, but I had had relations with quite a few men. Virtually all of my friends were gays, lesbians, or women who enjoyed gay company. I found girls pretty, but I was scared of them.
Now I am twelve years into a happy and faithful marriage to a woman. You couldn't pay me to have sex with a man at this point in my life.
Gay is not the new black. "Gay" is about sex and genitalia. People we call "gay" make choices about what they do with their genitals; blacks do not make choices about the color of their skin. Period. If one is going to fire Crystal Dixon for harming gay men by reminding all of us that no penis is beyond the executive decisions of its owner, then one might as well fire all the humanities professors in the United States --- starting with me.

But “orientation” is with all of us constantly.
Most men are “oriented” to young women with large breasts, beautiful faces, and few clothes. Most women are “oriented” to tall, athletic, good-looking men with money or great jobs.
We may be inclined that way but most of us become wise enough to realize that inclinations shouldn’t drive behavior.
We all come into the world equipped and inclined to lie, deceive, hurt others, or to dislike hard work. We don’t give a pass to people who persist in that all their lives.
Yup. We MUST take back the English language according to Webster!
This culture of euphemistic BULL#@&! (led by the academia) AND media needs to be turned on its head. "HOMOSEXUAL" is the true technical word of description for those men for whom sodomy "consummates" their mutual "act of love"....I will not describe the technical physical act for female homosexuals.
Apologies for all those eating lunch or breakfast at the moment :-&
There ain’t nothing ‘gay’ about pederasty!
Precisely!! That's why homosexual 'marriage' is NOT a civil right! Sexual orientation and activity are NOT immutable; race and ethnicity ARE.
Sounds like Crystal Dixon has a multi-level 1st amendment case covering, speech, religion, assembly and possibly the press. All people who made the decision to fire her should be sued until they’re living under a bridge, they’re lawyers too.
“These assumptions bestialize and infantilize gay men.”
But... but... that’s the whole point.
You bring up an interesting point, about your father. I haven't heard of many lesbians who think they were 'born that way'. Most like to proudly say they CHOSE their way of life, and in many cases, it was because some man or other, and usually their father, was abusive in some way, so they reject ALL men.
I'm glad you had the strength of mind and will to see why that lifestyle looked in any way attractive to you, and still choose to avoid it.
They chose... poorly.
I agree with most of what you say, I too have some experience with this, not the same as yours, but personal as well.
Identical twin studies prove Homosexuality is NOT genetic.
George Orwell, “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
Sounds reasonable to me.
I am so sorry to hear that you suffered under an abusive father. On the other hand, I am glad that you decided not to allow him to destroy you. Prayers for you.

... Yup ... it's about as much a choice as being a drunkard. Just stop doing it ... right?
"Gay" is an age-old pain in the arse.
Everything mankind says or does involves choice.
