In response to the bolded part of this: Actually, it very much can. Biology can be used to explain ALL of what anyone does. The human brain is very much a deterministic state machine, we just don't understand all the pieces yet. We will eventually discover the particular combination of chemicals or other stimuli that governs sexual arousal/interest, and will therefore be able to determine Random Schlub #37's preferred sexual orientation just by looking at a brain scan.Spence Thompson said:The religious right argue that homosexuality is a "choice," and when public opinion was strongest against homosexuality it was certainly beneficial to point discover and highlight some of the possible origins for same-sex sexual attraction. Biology certainly does have a significant effect on anyone's taste for anything- but it can't and shouldn't be used to explain every single possible instance of same-sex sexual expression, which certainly goes well beyond and public and avowed homosexuals such as myself. Shouldn't we just accept that gay sex is just, itself, great? Not for everybody, certainly. Wouldn't give cashews to someone with a peanut allergy. But in general, among whoever's doing it, gay sex is pretty awesome. And ought not be culturally discouraged or legally discriminated against in any way.
We're nowhere near that level of understanding the human brain, but we will get there eventually. Most likely in the 50-80 years from now range.
As for the rest of your post: Congratulations, you're gay. Did you want a parade in your honor or something? Nobody with any sense gives a flying fuck what you like to stick your dick into. Your sexuality does not make you special, nor does it make you matter. Get the fuck over yourself.
And as a rebuttal to the inevitable "DIE HOMOPHOBE!" I'm likely to get, this thread is very much akin to me making a thread "Woohoo! I'm straight! Let's all circlejerk about how awesome being straight is!". It's purely masturbatory and utterly pointless.
