No, I'm not suggesting that at all.
You raised the issue about right/left-handedness and I noted that the natural tendency can be overcome and in her generation, made things easier for her. But that's purely a physical skill. Sexual orientation is different.

Though I do wonder, if times were as they were in the past where homosexuality was much less accepted, if some gays would choose to change their orientation, if it was possible. I certainly don't think anyone should be forced to do that under any circumstances.

So sorry!

I’m pansexual and although I’m (mostly) out of the closet and happy there are some times where I’ve been directly discriminated against for having girlfriends, as well as some horrible homophobic comments and slurs directed towards me. It does frequently pass my mind that it would be so, so much easier if I was straight (like, everyday).

I am very happy with my orientation and wouldnt change it for anything. Yeah, I might have had a few problems coming out as gay, but the good outweighs the bad all the way around.

Don't worry about it. Things get lost on the net. I'm glad we were able to clear it up.
And I should have made it clear the right/left-handed anecdote wasn't entirely parallel to the gay issue in some important ways.

I wonder if it has to do with each individuals' experiences being gay/bi. Maybe some haven't had the negative encounters you've had.

Then again, I've heard a similar question asked of Blacks: if they could be White, would they choose to be and most of them say no. Yet certainly most Blacks have experienced discrimination in some way.

It might also be that those who are currently in a gay relationship would feel guilty saying they'd rather be straight, as it would mean they wouldn't be with the person they're with.

Iím very happy to be bisexual, the options are endless!!! Lol. I often wonder if sexuality would be better examined as a spectrum though, perhaps a slidding spectrum.

I donít consider myself as bi in the sense of my understanding of the word. That youíre able to have relationships with either girls or boys. If I were to place myself on a sliding spectrum of sexuality then I would put me one or maybe two notches away from straight. Iíve messed around with lads, not to the point of full sex. Though I might be up for trying that if the opportunity presented itself.

Iím not really attracted to guys in the same way as I am girls and I couldnít see myself in a relationship with a lad. But at the same time Iíd like to think Iím open minded enough that I wouldnít totally rule it out. But for me with guys itís just physical. Nothing more.

So, I guess that if I were want to change anything about my sexuality is to maybe slide a bit further down the scale towards being bi and be able to form emotional bonds with a boy as easy as I can with a girl.

Mostly Str8. Mostly Harmless.

I am very happy with myself. I am fkn proud of being gay. It would have been nice if my coming out would have gone smoother, or if I didn’t get stereotyped from time to time. But otherwise I wouldn’t give me being who I am away for anything.

Not in the slightest. I'm more than happy being bisexual. Sexual preferences are fluid and can shift over time. When I was 12/13 I was far more interested in boys. Fast forward to age 15/16 I was more into girls. Now it's more 50/50 for me. It's all good.

There are already mentions posted, but I'll repeat anyway... Your orientation is what you are born with and there's no changing that. How it develops still is quite a mystery, but that comes in genes... Conversion therapy is a scam. You are basically drugged and under deep hypnosis convinced that you like what you like... It's a deep violation of state of consciouness and can lead to certain madness... Parents who send their children to such a "theraphy" should be jailed and educated...

It is.. It's called "Kinsey scale"... Quite controversial, though, but at some point it works...

Perhaps we change it to the Richard Scale and take the controversy out of it.

Huh?
