Homosexuality Is Not An Addiction But A Choice

Homosexuality Is Not An Addiction But A Choice
In the playbook of sexuality is there a defensive line for not being homosexual? Don’t think so!
  • My heart aches when I think about going back to pretending to be straight just to please everyone else. I was miserable and unhappy. Like many people, maybe even you, I lived in the shell of an existence. I was married with kids but that wasn't really me. Does that sound like how you want to live? I didn't think so. That pretty much explains why choosing to be gay just isn't an option; misery really doesn't love company.
  • Contrary to popular and misguided belief homosexuality isn't all about sex. If you read and believe everything you see, gays and lesbians live on the island of orgy but in reality we also live in homes, have children, hold down jobs, sit and watch TV and suffer through bouts of intimacy deprivation with our partners.

At the end of the day the one thing I know for me and the estimated four million gays and lesbians in the United States (not counting the other millions around the globe) is that we're human and we were born this way. All you have to do is take the religion out of the discussion and what do you end up with? A friendly game of football.
