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.

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.

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.

Honestly, I need to stop doing this. I'm going to get myself shot one day...

 

It's a choice. Between the sexuality you are and asexuality. That much is fact. You can't suddenly make yourself attracted to boys, or girls, or animals, or whatever. But you can make yourself attracted to nothing.

 

Admittedly, I'm not entirely sure how you do it without self mutilation, but I digress.

 

Ms. Anderson, I'd like to take the time to thank you for completely disregarding the part where I said, "Where most people get it wrong is by thinking that the choice is usually between the two..." which I suspect you completely ignored as it interfered with your uncalled for sudden hatred towards me. Had you actually read my post with any amount of thought, you would have seen that I am, in fact, agreeing with you. Shame.

My opinion on sexual orientation is that when a baby is being developed there are two rounds of hormones that hit the body, one affects what types of genitals the baby has and then another round that can affect what the baby is attracted towards to reproduce. Most males will get the hormones that make them attracted to females and visa versa while there are mistakes while this is taking place, an average 10%, and these will be attracted towards people of their same gender. This 10% naturally attracted to those of their same sex though this provides no reproductive use. I think it is simply a genetic mistake, but not a mistake that is bad or wrong just something to live with. While it is possible to gay men to sleep with woman and lesbians to sleep with men, that does not make it a physically or mentally correct action.

To fully understand this concept we must stop looking at humans as different from all other animal species since when it comes down to it our bodies naturally want to reproduce though some peoples minds think that someone of their same sex will be able to reproduce with them. So it is a mistake but animals in all species have this same mistake.

 

To me at least this is a complicated thing to wrap my brain around, but it also makes sense. Though I wish to clarify this is only my theory it is not proven in anyway, and is all of my own thinking. 

 

If anyone would like to debate with me about it, or bring up problems with my idea, or propose something else I am happy to entertain that.

It is not a choice.  And it is not a lifestyle.  It's just a part of you.  It's just what you like.  And, Fake Crowley, if you are going to blurt some crap out like its a "fact" then you'd better start puking out some evidence to support your "fact". 

Unicorns are real.  That much is a fact.  I can support that claim just as much as you have supported yours. 

Also, dillhole, there is no wrong.  One cannot get one's sexuality wrong.  It doesn't work that way.  It's like English, there is no wrong. 

Another thing, there's not just two choices either!  God, you're ignorant.  If you think you can make a choice between whether you like girls or boys, your probably pan or bi. 

Comment by Fake Crowley on February 26, 2011 at 5:19pm

Homosexuality is a choice, and so is heterosexuality. That much is fact.

 

Where most people get it wrong is by thinking that the choice is usually between the two...

I think that there IS an orientation in which one can  focus ones attention on any sex one likes and not on the other, simply because they willed it to be that way. And other orientations are fixed. Also, for bisexuals(pansexuals etc.), you cannot choose the set of desires allotted to you, however you can act on whichever while being perfectly content.
