Homosexuality is a choice. How else would you explain the unusual rise of homosexuals in the last 10 to 20 years. I see it more as a fad/hype really. Kids see it's popular so they do it and most remain that way because they seem to like it. So yes, it's? a choice. 50 years ago the homosexual population was not even 1% of the total population in the U.S and now all of a sudden it's between 10-20%. Perhaps TV is what's causing this, nowadays most cartoons for kids even show homosexual behaviors.

Because violent, irrational apes like you frightened them all into hiding.

What was the percentage of closeted homosexuals?

*shakes head* It's just like how everyone's kids are getting kidnapped and everyone is being murdered. There's not necessarily more of it, we're just hearing about it more. And unlike my examples, this is a good thing. . . some people are starting to learn that different is not necessarily the same as wrong.

People have engaged in homosexual behaviors and desires since the beginning of time. The reason it seems that there are more homosexuals today is that at this moment in time, we are relatively accepting of homosexuality (i.e. it's legal), and people are being open about it instead of suppressing their feelings and/or sneaking around.

50 years ago the Kinsey Report estimated that the percentage of homosexuals was about 10%.

Now about 8% of males ages 18-44 consider themselves as homosexual/bisexual/something else. Only 2.3% consider themselves exclusively homosexual.

In women 18-44, 7.9% considered themselves as homosexual/bisexual/something else, with 1.3% identifying as exclusively homosexual.

If you can operate youtube you can do a simple google search, so get your facts straight or shut the hell up.

It's sort of like the unusual rise in interracial relationships. People don't automatically get beaten for acknowledging these things so a lot more people are being open about it.

It's not people are becoming more gay or lesbian, the enviornment is becoming more tolerant so people can no longer hide in the closet in fear.

Homosexuality is a choice. How else would you explain the unusual rise of homosexuals in the last 10 to 20 years.

There isn't more gays now than there has been. They just aren't afraid to come out now.

I see it more as a fad/hype really. Kids see it's popular so they do it and most remain that way because they seem to like it. So yes, it's? a choice.

If they try it and like it, they're either gay or bi. If someone is straight, they won't care for it.

50 years ago the homosexual population was not even 1% of the total population in the U.S and now all of a sudden it's between 10-20%.

There has always been the same amount of homosexuals. They were just scared to come out.

Perhaps TV is what's causing this, nowadays most cartoons for kids even show homosexual behaviors.

*sigh*

No, it's not. People are just out of the closet now. Tv shows are pretty open about homosexuality now because it's acceptable to be out of the closet, so, like everyone else, producers are no longer pretending that homosexuality doesn't exist. If anything, the only "fad" or "hype" being encouraged by television is tweens being overly angsty and skanky...but trust me, kids don't see stereotypical gay behavior and go "gee, I think being gay sounds cool, that's just the thing for me!"

I guess you're pretty young, because in the 70's everyone was fucking everyone. Even if the numbers have increased, I'd say it has more to do with coming out of the closet than anything else.

Kids see it's popular so they do it and most remain that way because they seem to like it.
I see you don't know any teenage boys, because they're constantly using fag and gay as insults. They're not hanging around blowing each other.

50 years ago the homosexual population was not even 1%
50 years ago you could be put in a mental institution and sterilized for being homosexual.

now all of a sudden it's between 10-20%.
Where the hell do you live?

most cartoons for kids even show homosexual behaviors.
What the fuck are you letting your kids watch? Or are you just turned on by a cross dressing Bugs Bunny?

Years ago you could be jailed, institutionalized or killed for being gay.

In most parts of the world, things aren't like that anymore, so more people are being open about their sexuality. That's why it seems like there are more gay people around today than a long time ago. They were always there, they were just hiding in fear.

As the sane parts of society become more tolerant of homosexuals, more homosexuals publically admit to being homosexuals.

Your claim that homosexuality is a choice is worthless as you have no education in the subject... assuming you are not a licensed psychiatrist, psycologist or such.

7/22/2009 9:04:19 PM



50 years ago, nearly all of the homosexual population kept their sexuality secret to "outsiders". It wasn't that long ago that homosexuality was a prosecutable crime.

it's call a closet. you know, the same one you and your homophobe friends have been living in for the past few centuries.

"I see it more as a fad/hype really."

Because you don't want to believe that rational people could choose differently than you. I bet you think godlessness is a fad/hype as well?

"Kids see it's popular"

You don't know any kids. I'm 18, I know 2 gay guys. One killed himself last week, the other was thrown out of his house and lives on youth allowance and govt housing assistance.
Gay/fag is a very common insult, so much so it has basically created a 3rd meaning of the word totally separate from the previous meanings. Homosexuality is not, by any stretch of the imagination, popular.

"so they do it and most remain that way because they seem to like it."

Even a Cosmo study found that straight guys don't get turned on by gay porn! Any credible study will show this! Homosexuality does not happen like that!

"50 years ago the homosexual population was not even 1% of the total population in the U.S"

[citation needed]

"all of a sudden it's between 10-20%"

you mean since people started coming out after the 60's? 40 years is not "all of a sudden", have you been living in a closet all this time?

"nowadays most cartoons for kids even show homosexual behaviors."

Alot of cartoons include some kind of M/F love interest or dynamic. Spongebob is the only cartoon I know with such homosexual undertones and you'll only see them if you're looking for them.

"Perhaps TV is what's causing this"

So many people have said that about so many modern issues.

It's not that there are more LGBTI folks, it's just that we're more OPEN about it.

At my high school, Statistics was an elective.

It should be required.

Spongebob has homosexual undertones?

Someday, we may find the cure for human stupidity. In the meantime, we have to quarantine people like infernalcross to prevent the spread of this contagion.

You don't think that rise might have something to do with the fact that people are becoming more comfortable displaying their sexuality?

7/22/2009 11:20:04 PM

Yeah a"fad" except for the fact years ago you would be killed,beaten,jailed and institunalized if you were gay.Since it's legalized here in the States and society is becoming more tolerant theres no need to hide in the closet.

Maybe, just maybe its because gay people feel they can be honest about who they are without getting killed by the state for it?
