Myth 1: I woke up one day and decided to be gay!

It’s actually hard to believe how clueless some people still are! Even now, in the 21st century, some people seem to think gay people woke up one day and made a choice. I mean, yeah, what a great idea! I want to be constantly ridiculed, judged, condemned, kicked out, rejected by family, and discriminated against, YES! What a great idea. Not to mention shrinking the pool of fish in the sea by an order of magnitude! Surely my chances of finding a soul mate would be better if I fish in my own pond! Les Be Real people.. ask any gay person.. they would not choose to be gay.. it’s a MUCH harder life to live.. do yourself a favour, and just think about it without all your ridiculous pre-conceived ideas.. and imagine if you were gay. In fact, scratch that.. if you are as straight as you may profess to be.. what on this earth would ever make you decide to change your mind and be gay?!

    Wow, can I scream AMEN to this blog entry?! Please?! I have tried and tried to explain to some people…it’s not a choice, it’s not something I just woke up and decided “oh I guess I’ll go ahead and be gay today.” It’s something that we’ve dealt with for years and being a Christian it was also something I tried to pray away…I dated guys and enjoyed my time with them for the most part, though something was never quite right. For a long time I just thought I wasn’t gay, I just liked girls a little…maybe that was my justification or my way of dealing with it all. Either way, thank you for being honest about this and joining my way of thinking in this matter. I don’t look at straight people and say “when did you decide to be straight?…” why does this happen to us?

    Hi Wilma,

    Thank you for your comment! It honestly does surprise me how so many people have this mentality, and don’t for one second stop and think about it logically! I do hope this blog is read by both gay and straight people, and that gay people would be encouraged, and straight people would stop and think!

    All the best to you.
