I don't think he/she is implying it is a conscious choice.
Sorry, attempt at humour. The one they use on those silly "talent" shows during auditions. When they've heard enough they hit the red button and blast the person off the stage
you could have added rolleyes for extra effect
"we all have the capacity to be in a same-sex relationship biologically but psychologically we choose not to. It is down to psychological reasons we choose our partners I believe"
who was that post for?
well fair enough, I hadn't intended on getting myself embroiled in such a hot topic but clearly differing views are out there and I'm of the minority at least in this forum!
I don't see the problem with the sentence, unless of course you have no idea what he is talking about.
It's not a choice dumbass. Gay people are born gay.
perhaps a dictionary might help?
Ouch. So, when you are replying to a post, I think the correct procedure is to press "quote" and then the person knows that you are replying to them.
I wasn't mocking, like I said, it was an attempt at humour - sorry you didn't find it funny. Incidentally, telling a gay person that they "psychologically chose" to be gay is, in my opinion, a far greater mockery.
Freud is not a reliable source for this. He has been challenged and in general his theories are not taken seriously any more. Freud also said that every boy wants to kill his father and have sex with his mother. His primary source for this? Hamlet. Not any actual empirical evidence. Just because Freud decided to theorise on this doesn't make it factual. I'd like to see some scientific evidence that everyone is bisexually predisposed. I really don't agree that biologically everyone has this capacity. Show me biological proof.
When you say that psychologically we choose not to engage in bisexual relationships due to societal pressure, you are implying that a lot of heterosexual people choose to be solely inclined towards heterosexuality in order to fit into societal norms. I don't know what your stance is on the motivations behind homosexuality in this case is. If societal pressure prevents someone being psychologically able to engage in bisexuality then what prevents a homosexual from doing so? I do not think my sexual orientation should be considered less valid (in the sense that is potentially motivated due to societal pressure) than a bisexual's and nor do I think homosexual people would be happy with this either.
in your case it's hit the "report post" function.
If you have an issue with the post, I suggest you report it. Or maybe you could help yourself by opening your mind up to understanding what it means.
