No worries. Whether you have realized it or not, tonight you admitted that homosexuality is not a choice (you eloquently termed its cause "faulty wiring" or "maybe hormones").

Wasn't avoiding it just missed it last night.
I don't believe being gay is a choice no. That makes no sense either. You can't choose who you find attractive. If a chic walks in the room, in about 1.2 seconds you know whether or not you think if you'd bang her or if you think she's hot/ugly/whatever.
So no, I don't think it's a "choice". However I don't believe it's something people are born with either. Just like I don't believe that people are born wanting to bang animals or be pedophiles or hetero either. I believe most of those things happen through conditioning and/or experiences. Most men obviously grow up, attracted to women. However even then, what we come to find attractive to each of us can vary wildly for all sorts of reasons.
I used to like big tittays. However now, I'm a total ass and stomach guy and have been for a while. I actually prefer smaller boobs now unless they are implants. And even then I like a nice full C cup. But I used to love big tits.
Sexual preferences aren't a "choice" but I do believe (and there's lots of speculation about this from the medical community) that they are formed at an early age based on environmental factors and conditioning. So no one is ever going to find a gay gene any less than a hetero gene.
