  •  "I didn't choose to be straight" doesn't translate (4+ / 0-)

    In the bigot's mind, straight is what happens when you don't make any choices and follow God's plan.  When they say being gay is a "lifestyle choice", they mean "willfully choosing to go against God's plan and wallow in perversion."

    So follow along here down the path of their reasoning:

    Straight is natural and requires no choice.

    Homosexuality is perversion and those who choose to go against nature and God and follow this path are evil.  

    When you say "I didn't choose to be straight" their reaction is "well duh."

    They have no concept of anyone having different desires and needs.  Except when they recognize that as Other and label it evil.

    •  Even straight people have a sexual orientation (2+ / 0-)

      it's called being straight.  And it's not a preference, it's an orientation.  Anyone who was ever a teenager and had a mad crush on another teen of the opposite sex knows very well that this attraction had nothing to do with some logical "preference"; it was mysterious, and it was powerful, and it was lizard brain instinct.

      Why should it be any different for our gay brothers and sisters?  Why is it so hard for them to understand this?

      Most reasonable people who actually know LGBT people are eventually going to get it. That's why equality will eventually win.
