I know two guys who are gay and they always take the time to talk to me and I feel like they understand me and I always hang out with them.

Do you think that's because they're gay though or is it because they're just nice people?

but of course, chromosomes contain your parents DNA, so yes it is related but I think the changes that would influence homosexuality are VERY minute.


Understood.
Then again, I don't think that being gay is in your DNA,
But, that's just me.

Yeah, I have straight friends that are like that,
And gay one's too.
What does sexual preference have to do with anything?

Uhm, no?

But if you get half of your DNA from your mother and half from your mother,
Then how is it that your DNA causes you be gay,
I don't understand that.

Okay, I don't want to compare homosexuality to a disease, but in the same way genetic diseases happen (this is the theory).
Yes, they get DNA from their parents, but it is a basis. If one strand of DNA coils itself in the wrong way, transmits the wrong code, a certain protein doesn't fold the way it should, these microchanges can cause effects on the macro level.

See what he says.

Bio?
And if so, what kind of bio. are you?

My point exactly and this is what annoys me about some people. They believe homosexuality is fine but feel that the way to show this is by befriending every homosexual they know in order to display their tolerance, regardless of that person's personality.

If I'm honest, I only have one friend of that sexual orientation, not because I don't know any others but because I don't simply like them AS PEOPLE. It's not that I'm homophobic, or that I don't care about equality, if anything, I care about equality so much that I am willing to treat people as human beings- all the same. If you're gay, straight, pan, bi, trans, whatever, and I don't like you, it has nothing to do with your sexual orientation. I just... don't like you.

Yes if you're interested definitely ask him. I'm basing this theory just based on what I understand from my college-level classes.
Right now I'm finishing up prerequesite general science classes (among others; currently taking 'General Biology 2' and Human Genetics) before I can start my major, I will be hopefully majoring in Wildlife Biology.

I think that being gay means that a switch in that person's brain has been turned off or something and they just like their sex instead of the opposite. They don't choose to be gay. Their brains are hardwired from birth.

What about bisexual people? Is that when the switch gets stuck in the middle?

Yeah. I think about it in that way for some reason.

or maybe being bisexual or pansexual or maybe asexual means you dont have a switch?

What about if you just like to wear women's clothing? Is it like the main switch is turned on but the extension cord isn't plugged in?

i know it was a joke, but crossdressing doesn't have to have anything to do with who you're attracted to..

It doesn't. I remember Gerard Way saying that he used to cross-dress all the time while he was in art school and he's not gay. He married Lyn-z from Mindless Self Indulgence.
