The Abomination refuses to reply to my argument, I have won and there is no reason to carry on.
This is how debating works.
I think he's obviously a troll

I honestly don't see what the problem is with gays. A few of my friends happen to be gay, and I'm perfectly fine with that. It's a lifestyle choice, and although others may not agree with it, they have the right to be treated like everyone else regardless of their sexual preference. The only reason people would think otherwise is mainly because of the ignorance that they were taught by their religion(s) or family upbringings.
It's not that complicated. If you discover that you have "feelings" for people of the same sex, you can choose to encourage or discourage those feelings by a number of ways - including coming out and submitting to a lifestyle, that while being stereotypical, does exist.
Being gay today is more than just the technical aspects of it. Labeling yourself as homo, bi, or hetero will greatly affect the way the world looks at you, and thus will probably in some way affect the way you feel. So being gay or not is a choice to some degree.
I doubt you chose your sexuality, just like how I didn't choose to be homosexual. That was the point I was trying to make.
Seriously, who in their right mind would freely choose to be treated as lesser beings and not be given rights?
In some developed countries you don't even have to sacrifice any rights.
This just in.
It's a known fact.

Yes I think so.
I don't think it's impossible for you to learn to appreciate another man (/woman) sexually.
But I would be incredibly hesitant of doing so, even in a society dominated by homosexuals because it is not immediately pleasing for me. In fact it wouldn't be pleasing for me at all. So I would continue to be a heterosexual. I didn't inherently choose to be strictly heterosexual but I'm choosing to continue to be one every day. In the most technical use of the word "choice" I choose nearly everything. But I didn't actively choose to be a heterosexual at first, I chose not to change my natural urges.
So you would agree that I have no choice in my original sexuality? But your argument is that I could potentially have a choice to change it if I really wanted to?
I'm gay. I didn't choose to be gay, it just happened. I could try and fancy women, but that would be difficult, much like a straight man trying to fancy men.
Doesn't happen I'm afraid.
It obviously isn't applicable to everyone, but it does happen. Trust me.
It's not like it makes any difference anyway. Why some people are gay is completely irrelevant imo.
Just to clear things up a little...
Gays are not "born" being gay. They adopt the belief somewhere during their life, usually at a very young age.
Lets face it, there is no gay gene (although, it would be kind of funny if there was).
And what would such evidence even look like? What are you expecting?
I feel like I've explained my reasoning thoroughly already.
There's this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/20...nce.psychology
Basically it says that homosexual men/heterosexual women have similarly shaped brains, and homosexual females/heterosexual men have similar brains to each other. It's not definitive evidence, but it is good evidence to show support to the theory that you are born gay or straight.
And if you want further evidence, I'm gay and I did not choose to be this way.
Your turn, skippy.
No one can force you to like the same sex.
You aren't born believing a certain religion. That has to be taught and influenced to you by others. That's nurture.
You are born with your sexuality set. Even if you are taught to hate homosexuals and shit, the person may end up later realizing he's homosexual. Of course he's going to preach against it because of nurture and date women, but he'll be unhappy.
