Look, it is a choice. You have to find out if you feel that when, and CHOOSE whether or not to embrace that feeling. Many people CHOOSE to not come out. That is their choice not your's or mine.
I believe that homosexual marriage should be allowed in every state, it makes no sense how it hasn't been. Homosexuals are recognized but not given any rights. That is wrong, wrong, wrongity, WRONG!

No, it's not. Did you choose to like girls or boys? I don't ever remember doing so.

and CHOOSE whether or not to embrace that feeling.

That's not a choice.

While I agree homosexual marriage should be allowed, how someone feels about something isn't a choice. Whether that be if they like doritos or anything else, you don't pick what you like.

that they choose to not come out as a homosexual. does not mean that they are not homosexual.

they choose to not come out because homosexuals are shunned upon by a big part of todays society.

They always have been. Even though many countries' laws recognize and support homosexuals, the society at large, at least a big part of it, considers it wrong. Calling someone gay is even used as an insult (why they are so mad at happy people, I have no idea :D)

The mere fact that we're talking about "choice" of coming out or not shows how bad the case of homosexuals still is. Homosexuality is not a conscious behaviour; homosexuality is the attraction to the same gender. It can't be a choice. Acting like a heterosexual is not being heterosexual; you're still homosexual per definition. Many hide those feelings and lead a heterosexual's life. However I don't qualify this as a real choice as it is made under constraint and pressure. In a tolerant society homosexuals shouldn't even have to decide what to do with their feelings.

We won't ever really have an entirely tolerant society.

Homosexuality is not a conscious behaviour; homosexuality is the attraction to the same gender.

It is a conscious behavior, at least at first, because you have to realize you feel that way. And choose whether or not to act homosexual, if there is indeed a different way they act.

This is called a seg-way. There are gays who act very...flamboyant in nature, and there are others who simply don't care and just be themselves. They're not particularly acting heterosexual, they're just being themselves. There really isn't a specific way to act if you are of either sexual orientation.

Found the problem.

You don't "act" how you feel. You either do or don't.

Do you have a sexual attraction to people the same gender as you? Y/N.

If Y, you're a homosexual (or bisexual). If N, you're not. There is no action involved.

There really isn't a specific way to act if you are of either sexual orientation.

That's because how one acts has absolutely nothing to do with the subject. It's how you feel. Even if you don't ever do anything homosexual, you still ARE a homosexual if you feel an attraction to someone of the same gender.

Don't you think there might be a slight contradiction here?

Again from the beginning, homosexuality is the attraction to the other gender.. you don't consciously attract yourself to someone, don't you? This is what I mean by saying it's not a choice; you don't choose your sexual attraction.

Now what you mean are the conscious part of behaviour, the image you give of yourself etc. As you said yourself those are usually just character traits of individuals, not their actual sexual orientation.

hmmmm... no, during the greek and roman times homosexuality was not shunned upon. the 1 earliest records on homosexuality between man was a religious praying practice.(some 1000 year ago) i dont recall right away what religion it was. but it is 1 of the bigger ones in history. it was a prayer to the goddess of love.

Well who has the right to say if it's right or wrong for humanity? I think when there is more freedom for people to think freely. Like in the Roman days. No one can impose "right" or "wrong" as well and so people decide for themselves it's not wrong.
