4. Well, they can let go of THAT fear.
It's my firm belief you can't just DECIDE to be gay anymore than a gay person can just DECIDE to be straight.

Oh I could have gay sex. But that wouldn't make me gay. I couldn't make myself gay anymore than I could make myself purple or the Queen of England.


Maybe righties should start understanding that. Then they'd relax a bit (we hope).
