    Well I don't remember choosing to be gay. Did you remember making the choice to be presumably straight?

    I think you're born with it and I don't think environmental pressures are an influence unless it happens very early on. I remember being aged 6/7 and feeling different as I didn't 'like' girls. I was also raised in a religious family, and believe me you certainly wouldn't choose to gay in that situation!

    I've raised this issue before. At no point do straight men 'decide' to like women, and at no point do straight women 'decide' to like men, so why should it be different for anybody else? Whilst I don't agree that there are zero environmental pressures (though I don't strictly agree, either) that's enough for me to see that sexuality is clearly not a conscious choice. It's just like if people have a preference. Blonde, redhead, tall, short, etc. At no point do you 'decide' to be attracted to that.. You just are.

    No boy of 6/7 likes girls! Nasty squealy things, and you get in trouble if you hit them.

    I just knew I was different though. If you were to ask a lot of gay people, most of them would say the same thing.

    They do... I have a lot of gay friends both male and female, and all except one of them say exactly that. They knew there was something different about the way they felt about people from a very early age. The one exception to this is a woman and has been in a string of relationships with both sexes, she is currently (and has been for 5 years) in a relationship with a woman. She says she simply falls for whoever makes her happy at the time.

    Homosexuals are only responsible for floods and hurricanes.

    Unwed mothers have earthquake powers.

    Non-believers bring about the end of days. [Come on, Zombie apocalypse!]


    For general snow, you need to be either an albino [mining] dwarf or a French-Canadian illegal immigrant working in the Banana packing industry.

    Unciviled? Is that like anti-social? Could we curb your weather influencing tendencies with an asbo?

    Woo, let's get this done! So, war, pestilence or famine? I'm all for zombie if that's what makes us happy...

    Personally, I'm just happy that civilised folks like us from all walks of life can laugh about it.

    You misunderstand.

    By "end of days" I just mean night. We non-believers bring about darkness in a literal sense. The Zombie remark wasn't related to anything.

    TBF, nerds/geeks have generally ALWAYS been like this.

    It doesn't matter what you look like, or who you're attracted to, if you're a nerd/geek you're one of us.

    Only if you're a white upper-middle class man who comes from "old money".

    But, that's just the standard patriarchal bureaucracy powers.

    Pansexual, then. She is much more focussed on the emotional attachment and can find physical pleasure with either gender satisfying.
    Hats off to her. Logically - from a happiness-in-a-relationship standpoint - that's the most best way to be.
