When did I even say that? I'm attracted to both, regardless, I made that choice myself, I think men and women are attractive. It's my choice, probably because of how I was raised. I'm also into a lot of other things that most women aren't into. I don't really want to say I'm masculine, but I guess I'm tomboyish, and all of my sisters as well, but it's because my dad raised us like that.

Following the line of logic, if you chose to be attracted to a certain sex, why couldn't you choose to stop being attracted to them?

Saying I choose implies that I choose for my dick to go erect and my hormones to fluctuate. Again, I don't see it.

Psychological choices are different, you're comparing apples to oranges. Sexual attraction is based off of fixations, so it's more or less an addiction, I'm pretty sure if you spent your life straight, and you thought a lot about what it would be like to go the other way, you could get into it. In fact, I know that you can, because I started off that way. I didn't switch teams, I just developed fixations for the female body, and perversions.

You can more or less choose if you want, just like you can choose to smoke pot, or be a sadist.

Umm, how could you even choose to change your preference? I could understand if you're talking about pansexuality because you are CHOOSING to be attracted to everyone on the gender spectrum, as you have to decide that you can accept that in a mate.

Why would anyone choose to be gay? After all the disparaging, ignorant remarks such as your own, why would anyone want to risk that? And "perversions" lawl.
Perversions are like pedophilia. There is absolutely nothing wrong with liking other women's bodies. I find women's bodies to be much more appealing than men's, does that make me gay? I'm on a steady of diet of cock, last time I checked.

I heard about that as well. Three boys and my sister were born before me, so I laughed when I heard that. It may explain why I'm so different from my two other brothers, who are both conventionally masculine, whereas I'm more of a creative type/weirdo.

Yeah I completely feel the same, I find women beautiful (well certain ones) and am attracted to them. However, I've never felt like I wanted to be with a woman. Sexy man arms and penis all the way.

If it did, there would be a lot more lesbians out there!

I am really interested to hear about when/how you made said choice. It seems that it would make more sense to say that one realizes they're attracted to both men and women - I can't personally remember any single moment in my life when I felt there was any conscious choice involved in regards to whom I was or was not attracted.

I'm not meaning to criticize you necessarily, and I appreciate that in one of your previous posts you made it clear that you don't claim to speak for anyone but yourself, but I am genuinely curious to know more about your experience in making this "choice."

But is there any valid, conclusive scientific evidence supporting that sexual orientation is not a choice?
