Question for All DUers re Sexual Orientation and "choice"
Advertisements [?]
I've been pondering the fundie postulation that sexual orientation involves choice: that is, that we choose which gender we're attracted to. I've done a bit of personal memory sifting and honestly, I can't remember having made any such decision--but I do remember quite clearly getting in trouble in the first grade for drawing pictures of naked girls. My default setting, if there is such a thing, is apparently set to "breeder." Which leads me to wonder what other folks' experience is, and whether the fundies believe that everyone's default setting is "straight," or whether they think everyone, at some point, makes a "choice" about which gender they want to have sex with. Have you or anyone you know chosen to be gay? Or straight? What's the basis for the fundies' belief that sexual orientation is a matter of choice?
