    I'm curious when people say being gay, bisexual etc is a choice surely being straight is a choice too since it's also a sexuality, I completely disagree I believe you don't have a choice about your sexuality, you realise you're attracted to males/females/non binary etc and from those people you choose the traits you find the most appealing and that's your type (but this is my opinion not trying to start a fight). So I'm wondering you had the choice handed to you to be gay or straight (keeping it simple so it doesn't get too complicated) would you take this opportunity and if so what would you rather be gay or straight-also why?

    I'm straight but my thought on it was that your life experience determines your sexuality.

    I'd choose to be straight anyway because it's just easier.

    I'm bisexual, and I knew that from being 15, well I felt gay when left school at 16; sexual orientation is something you just know about when you growing up, its not a choice, I just know.
