That's not entirely true. And you have no evidence to back up such a claim.
I also have a theory on sexuality, that I hope to expand upon and publish some day.
Imagine that our sexual attraction to a person can be measured on a scale of 1 to 100.
We are each of us born with a measure of attraction to the opposite sex, and a measure of attraction to the same sex. These attractions are completely independent from one another.
Let's call these values of attraction XY (opposite sex) and XX (same sex).
A person's XY can be high and their XX also high, and they are naturally bisexual.
A person's XY can be low and their XX also low, and they are naturally asexual.
A person's XY can be high and their XX low, and they are naturally heterosexual.
A person's XY can be low and their XX high, and they are naturally homosexual.
And all levels of gray fall in-between.
But then we have the effect of society, which includes religious and cultural beliefs, as well as the species' natural tendency to procreate. These all tend toward heterosexual behavior.
A naturally bisexual person can easily choose to behave in a heterosexual manner, as they can find someone of the opposite sex to be sexually attracted to.
A naturally homosexual person has to fight a little harder.
Anyway, I think if you think about my theory a bit you'll see how it makes perfect sense, and real-world data about the incidence of homosexual behavior would appear to support this theory perfectly. It also explains how some people can "choose" the side of sexuality upon which they act.
However, there are people who are born homosexual, who simply have a tougher time ignoring their natural tendencies.
Now, let's all go out and support IDAHO.http://www.idahohk.org/2008/index.htm
This is where I'll be this Sunday, as I have been for the last 3 years. In support of my fellow homo-sapiens, against the anti-Christian bigots of the world who "hate fags".
