What is your opinion of this? I know a lot of people who are gay usually say you're born that way and are offended if you think otherwise, but im bi leaning more towards gay and I don't feel you were born that way at all. I think everyone is born asexual and that sexuality develops in your late pre-teen to teen stage.
The thing about it is that usually most people are inclined to think that if you don't believe you're born gay that you think you can magically decide your orientation at any given second, but I don't believe that at all. I think it ties into puberty and your surroundings growing up. Once you hit that developing stage you can't really change orientation from there because its a mental and emotional attachment to one or both sexes that's ingrained in you.
Although i'd have to question how there are stories of people changing orientation in alter stages of life, but that could be a number of things including suppressed feelings towards X sex or realization that you were never attracted to Y sex in the first place.
OR ITS ALL A BIG MYSTERY NO IDEA.
I'm gonna stop here and see what your opinions are on this. I've been wanting to bring this up for a LONG time because I had a debate about it months ago in my Government class and I brought up that I thought it was surroundings that affected orientation and was quickly chastised for it with arguments that "why would you choose to live a harder life" and whatnot. I figure most people here would be able to debate it maturely.
(Also im probably thinking way too hard into this thread but i've been sitting here for half an hour trying to get all my thoughts together because im exhausted and having mass deja vu that i've made this topic before or posted in one like this...)
