One of the most common justifications that Christians employ for the persecution of homosexuals is that homosexuality is a choice. “By actively choosing it,” they say, “they have condemned their souls to Hell.” Well, I’m a Christian, and who knows what happens to your soul if you’re gay? I sure don’t. All I know is, homosexuality is not a choice. If it were, I would have made that choice long ago.
Let me explain. Have any of your ever tried actually dating a woman? It is a horrible experience. Women are fickle creatures; they have no idea what they actually want, yet they insist on their every whim being catered to as though it were the will of God. Bought her a gift, but it’s not just what she wanted? Made her dinner, but forgot the garnish? Say goodbye to sex, for at least a week. And once a month, this already erratic behavior is exacerbated by the menstrual cycle, and if not for the promise that sex will resume when it’s all over, any reasonable man would slash his own throat to be free of it.
Ah, and sex. Yet another thing women can’t make their minds up over. Men are simple: show me something that arouses me, and I’m good to go. Womens’ sexual behavior can range from rabid to utterly frigid, and there is absolutely no consistent trigger for either end of that spectrum. I’ve been forced to go without sex for weeks at a time, followed by a whole week of nonstop, virulent, slave-driven intercourse. And then they complain when we can’t perform consistently!
I would totally be into this, if I had the choice.
I get along with men so much better than I get along with women. Men make sense. They know what they want, and they go after it. No hinting at it it or playing games. They do things when they want to do things. When a man wants sex, he doesn’t let petty feelings get in the way, he goes for it. And there is no menstrual cycle for a man; when he’s in a bad mood, it’s for a reason, and he’ll probably tell you what that reason is. Men don’t hold grudges, we settle them. Simply put, I would be happier dating some of my closest buddies than most of the women out there. If I could have chosen it, I would have chosen to be gay a long time ago.
But I didn’t, because I can’t. I’m attracted to women, and that’s just how it is.
God help me.
