  1. Emery was awesome! I have seen the Aristocrats and loved the movie. Emery himself before.

    Regarding gay/bi as a choice; I think I personally would go the full mile and say that I do think that everyone has the potential to be any/all types of sexuality (gender identity too I guess), but I’m not sure that I would couch it as a ‘choice’ as such. The way I think of it is like preference for smells or foods – there are some foods we just don’t like, and we didn’t ‘choose’ not to like them. However, it is totally possible to work at it and gain an appreciation, even fondness, for flavours. So, while I’m sure people have a genetic tendancy towards certain preferances, people are quite ‘plastic’ in their tastes and can develop new ones. I have known a vegan lesbian go on to become a meat-eating (straight) married mother! I’m sure other people have known gay people to switch. What alot of people then say is ‘oh, they were probably bi or not really gay’, but I don’t buy this. My partner used to be gay, then straight, then gay, then straight. Bi you say? Maybe, but if you talk to her what she actually says is at the time she was gay/straight she wasn’t actually sexually interested in the converse gender. I think something that probably camoflagues this is the social pressure; there is ALOT of pressure not to be gay, so there are probably many more people switching from gay to straight/bi rather than vica versa…

    Anyhow, I do agree that the LGBT movement should make less of a song and dance about being ‘born’ that way. It shouldn’t matter if it is a choice. And if it’s found out one day that it is possible to change from one to another it would still be right to give everyone equal rights, regardless.
