Here's my opinion. I think it's evident that there is some inherent sexuality (whether it's bi, homo, hetero, or asexual) in a child at birth. But it is subject to change throughout your life. As many (such as Crowley) describe such a change or "realization". It is not a conscious choice however, there may be some currently unknown way to deliberately change your sexuality but I doubt it. And although some sort of treatment (that sounds like I disapprove of homosexuality, I don't I just can't think of another word) may be possible, it would be an extremely tedious process that could be ruined by any number of things, such as the knowledge the you're being treated. I also feel like sexuality could (and maybe should?) be graphed. On the x-axis would be what sex you're attracted to and the y-axis would be your sex-drive. so for instance the coordinates (with girls being negative and guys being positive) 4,7 would mean you're more attracted to guys than girls and you have a higher sex drive than someone who is only 6 on the y-axis. There would of course be a limit on the x axis because there is the rare sexuality of being solely and not at all attracted to on gender. Just my thoughts, No matter what your impression is I'm definitely in support of the LGBT community and am part of it as a bisexual.

I'm so confused. I thought you said that you thought being asexual was a choice. Something clearly got lost in translation, lmao. But yeaaaahhhh being asexual doesn't sound like too much fun, but sex isn't the most important part of life.

Asexuality can be discovered throughout ones life similar to how all types of sexuality are not apparent at birth typically but realized throughout time. Such as when I was a kid I was attracted to girls but now I am attracted to guys. And even if it is realized over time as it is in your case Crowley it might have not been you lost your heterosexuality but realized another version of sexuality. So never is ones sexuality a choice in the sense that someone can choose to be sexually driven to one person, object, ect. but instead it is a choice by the subconscious brain. 

This again is only my opinion and understanding of how sexuality works and offer it for nothing more than something to be considered.

I can't imagine why anybody would choose to be asexual.

 

It's not as great as it sounds. :/

Comment by Chuck Rogers on February 26, 2011 at 8:27pm
Ohhh okay, I understand. But the thing is, unless someone wants to be asexual no one should say "choose to be asexual it's better". I sincerely think that a person's sexuality should only be between themselves and the person (or people...) they're having sex with (or just themselves if they choose not to have sex)
Comment by Fake Crowley on February 26, 2011 at 8:21pm

Oh, I definitely crave relationships. Hell, even romantic ones.

 

However, I said heterosexuality and homosexuality. Not gay or straight. There is a difference, or at least in my mind.

 

I apologize for the confusion.

Comment by Chuck Rogers on February 26, 2011 at 8:19pm

Okay, then I stand corrected. Maybe it's not something you're born with but something you realize along the way. 

In any case, most asexuals (maybe not you in particular, but most) are still attracted to people. Meaning that they do want relationships. So asexuality as a means to get rid of being gay is not possible because you will still be attracted to people of the same sex and want to have a relationship with a person of the same sex they just won't want to have sex with them.

Edit: My mistake. I didn't gain asexuality, I lost heterosexuality.
Comment by Fake Crowley on February 26, 2011 at 8:15pm

Being an Asexual myself, I'm actually quite aware of what it's like, thanks.

 

I have no sex drive. I used to have one. I am now asexual. I used to be a heterosexual.

 

I gained asexuality, although through what means I'm not entirely sure. I'll admit, it wasn't a choice in my case--but given that most experts believe it to be a psychological thing rather than genetic, I find it likely that yes, I am right when I say that it can be gained by choice.

Comment by Chuck Rogers on February 26, 2011 at 8:10pm

Actually, asexuality (like all other sexualities) is something you are born with. People who are asexual are still attracted to people (and can be gay or straight) they just have no desire for a sexual relationship with anyone. 

I suggest you visit this website if you wish to know more on the subject of asexuality.
