<checks himself> nope pretty healthy, hm...also I'm in norfolk, not really the hotspot for crime.
I would say the reason I am homosexual is because I like men, I don't think it's due to me having stress, I have the same amount of highs and lows as most teenagers throughout there life really. If you want my personal opinion I think homosexuality occurs through socialisation, all based on the culture. Or it could be there is no reason for homosexuality, it is all just random. I just find it funny the most asked question I get is 'how did you tell people you were gay', is it really such a thing I have to label myself gay for people to identify me? I have yet to see a culture that is purely based on 'straight' and 'gay' (well ok you could argue nazis but they were also killing everyone else not like them).
If you really think about it the best think for everyone would be for everyone in the world to be bisexual, I mean it was popular in roman times. <shrugs> anyhow making dinner while posting this so sorry if this reply seems sorta distant.
mental health is also a big clue. and while society may suggest personality may be anything, one knows that if a man believes he is a woman his whole life, this is unhealthy. consequently, if a woman believes she is a man, it is unhealthy. why? because it is not true. sexuality, however, goes much deeper, and when one entertains his sexual preferences, it is hard to believe it is unhealthy because it simply is. heterosexuality is NATURAL because procreation is the basis behind it, however pleasure is also important.
to suggest your sexual preference as a homosexual is "normal" would be to say people who are attracted to little kids are normal, because it's just what gets them off. however, not being "normal" isn't necessarily bad, and in the case of me, i don't judge anyone, i just simply agree it is choice to pursue.
people who lose their ego often meet their true self face to face. however, their ego also plays a role in affecting the true self, which is really the basis to its existence. sexuality is an expression of the ego, and yes this has been proven scientifically. you cannot masturbate with fantasy. ultimately it is your choice what you pursue in your fantasy, however, your ego/personality, perception on life, etc. affects what gets you aroused.
neither is better, nor worse, but when someone has a healthy perception of truth (ie a man who believes he is a woman will remain restless and pursue transvestism) they act more "naturally", because the personality reflects beliefs, emotions, etc. (ego)
this is also why people who develop amnesia come out with much different personalities, and often times different sexual preferences. people who build up lots of self-worth, love, attention, or need of, etc. can often times be homosexual (see the story of narcissus)
people content in their self are more "healthy", personality wise, or truthful, and their sexuality usually reflects this
again, neither is better nor worse, simply choice, whether conscious or not. dont let religion lie or judge you, things go deeper than they appear
