45. You know, I have to wonder
I'm gay. How in the FUCK can anyone think it's a choice, considering what gay people are up against? My family was freaked out that I'm a lesbian and threw me out of the house, I've had people make derisive comments when I've been out with a girlfriend, and I don't even suffer the dyke penalty, because I'm femme.

People act like you can just shut off your sexuality, and that you are making a choice. It's not a choice. It has never been a choice for me. I just plain love women, and no amount of men asking me out and no amount of peer/familial pressure is going to stop me from becoming emotionally attached to women. It's far more than just sexual. It's a mental and emotional thing, though of course, physicality does come into play.

This display of "Christianity" is yet another in a long line of atrocious behavior by those who consider themselves "Christian soldiers". If Christ was alive today, he'd be the first to rebuke followers like this like he did the Pharisees.
