I did say that sexuality is a choice, but I did not say sexual orientation was.
Yes you did. I quoted you. So either you're lying then, or lying now. Either way you're lying.
Sexuality and sexual orientation are not one in the same. Sexuality involves behavior while sexual orientation is about who one's erotic desire is directed towards. Sexuality can be controlled whereas we have no evidence that sexual orientation can be controlled or manipulated by any scientific means.
And you have said that sexual orientation (ones sexual desires) is a choice. As I said I QUOTED YOU SAYING THAT
. As for the evidence, quite a bit was already provided by myself and others, most of which you ignored and didn't respond to. Remember Truth, this is a forum not a verbal conversation. The words don't go away. We can just scroll up and see where people have provided evidence, as well as the things you've said. So trying to lie doesn't help you much.
Based on the fact that being a homosexual is defined as a type of sexual orientation, I must agree with you.
See? Here we have it again. You are agreeing that homosexual is a type of sexual orientation. Whereas you previously stated outright that homosexuality is a choice. So you ARE
claiming that we choose sexual orientation. If you're going to rely on pathetic lies, at least keep them straight.
But from a logical standpoint, if you have a person that chooses to willfully engage in homosexual activity, how can you classify them any other way but homo or bisexual? As I have said countless times, it makes very little practical sense to weight orientation above actual sexuality. The two both carry weight.
But they are not the same thing. As I said before, acting Japanese does not make
me japanese. If a person chooses to engage in homosexual activity you do not necessarily classify them as such because there could be many other factors that cause the behaviour instead of their sexual orientation. That's why your position is not only idiotic, but useless. It ignores all other factors involved.
Your standpoint is not logical, it's shallow and narrow-minded.
I thought I was clear. I don't know is my answer as it pertains to the origins of S.O. What I stated an opinion on was not S.O. but rather sexuality (sexual behavior). That is what I declare we all have a choice in. If you call that claim baseless I must ask; How can that idea be disputed?
Well first off I can dispute it because you can't even use your terms consistently. You use sexual orientation and sexuality interchangeably as you feel they help your case. For example, you say "I don't know" is your answer to the origins of sexual orientation. Except you have repeatedly classified it as a choice. Only to say that you were referring to sexuality, then go back to talking about sexual orientation as a choice. That alone pretty much invalidates anything you have to say on the topic.
Also this is an argument from ignorance. You are trying to make a claim that you have no proof for it and then claiming that you can't see how it can be disputed in lieu or providing supporting evidence. Which also further wrecks your claims of logic that you made earlier.
Furthermore there is much of human behaviour that we don't have a choice in. We react naturally in certain ways to certain stimuli and based on the wiring of our brains. So no, our sexual behaviour is not necessarily governed by choice. That's why you have to actually back up what you're saying. Which you clearly can't.
A man can learn and progress people. I get that sexuality and sexual orientation have separate definitions. I DO NOT equate the 2.
Yes, you do. You've been doing it this whole time. Do I need to go back and start pointing out the specifics again?
What I will say is this: If one's lifestyle is lived in a manner that is not reflective of the person's sexual orientation, then that person's sexual orientation looses relavance.
First off, why? Second off, you mean it loses relevance to you. Third off, justify it.
That's my opinion of course, but I will ask those of you with a differing opinion to illustrate how and why in the above described scenario one's sexual orientation is most relavant.
It's your claim, it's up to you to back it up. Otherwise it's to be dsicarded.
