So, if sexual preference is a choice...maybe I can convince you to be hetero?
I can't think of anything off the top of my head of his that wasn't debunked later on or determined to be completely untestable. Even his psychoanalytic followers took that form of psychology in a very different direction. In modern psychology, even among clinical psychologists, Freud is generally considered important in a historical context for popularizing the study of psychology, but not much else. Leaning towards research psychology myself, I have a love-hate relationship with him. Edit: Mostly hate, though, so you know where I'm coming from.Tragedy said:Yeah, I know he had... questionable methods and morals, but extensive study has been done on this particular issue and he was... well, not proven, but found out to be on the right track.LetalisK said:
It'd be a laugh, no doubt. I would too, but the pussies choose not to get smashed by me.Mugen said:I don't post on internet forums such ridiculous things as I CHOOSE TO SMASH ZE PUSSY.
And I can say my house is made out of solid gold, with Uranium trim, and we both be just as wrongzelda2fanboy said:I say if you don't actually do stuff with your preferred gender, than you aren't whatever sexuality you proclaim to be.
Nope. Cross dressing isn't funny, it's weird.Spence Thompson said:Can you blame me? Have you been to a drag show, recently? Hilarious.
I happen to think of homosexual behaviour as aberrant behaviour (please don't confuse this with abhorrent or an abomination), it's not "normal" and who gives a fuck? To think that what most people do is the more moral thing to do is to say that slavery was a-ok as long as everyone kept slaves at the time.Spence Thompson said:I resent the idea that homosexuality is some condition that is the ultimate result of some less-than-ideal condition in the womb or the environment or my genes or the function of my brain, or whatever. What if I just choose to suck cock? What if I just like dick better than pussy?
It's easy, tell them that Christianity is a choice. Thousands of people around the world (mostly people under 30) are leaving the church and religion in general. A great testament to the notion that religious thinking and the homophobic bile it entails can be conquered. This eclipses the number of people that attest to being "cured" of their homosexual drives by several orders of magnitude. They don't have to hate the gays any more, there is a way!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.
I have a bachelors degree in Business Admin, so obviously I'm qualified to change the definitions of concepts and long held social norms. I presume the check for my services is already on its way. I just don't think preference deserves a name, especially when I was a virgin for 25 years. Actually being with girls is light years different from wanting to be with girls. I've been masturbating for so many years that I've quit watching porn. My ejaculatory fantasies have become so unsexual and off kilter, that it's hardly worth thinking that my "identity" is defined by what makes my penis function.Mortai Gravesend said:Where exactly did you get the authority to override the actual definition? Why exactly do you feel the need to throw your own definition of it in when that isn't the real one?
Oh thank the Lord, I was worried I was the only one! my fantasies all tend to involve feelings and love and all this really WEIRD crap I didn't think they did outside of Japan!zelda2fanboy said:I've been masturbating for so many years that I've quit watching porn.

However, I date (and want to date) girls, so therefore I guess that makes me a "heterosexual."
