Being straight isn’t the default. It’s just more common

This is wrong, there is no (according to recent research) "default" position, or any position, as sexuality is not solely determined by genetics - it develops with environmental exposure. The positions we currently hold are still very open to new information, but what is known is that sexuality is only partially biologically determined at most.

But I'm feeling obnoxious today so I'll say, they weren't born anything.

Not obnoxious at all, it's the most scientifically supported position.
A) No driving sexual force exists at birth.
B) Recent research suggests a maximum of "25% contribution" of heredity towards development of homosexuality - of course the report was made PC and had huge LGBTQ input (not so scientific) to please them. So the conclusions made on the terms of the LGBTQ community refuted the long-held myth that one is "born gay or straight".

So you weren't born straight? Given another situation where homosexuality was seen as the most positive, then you would just as likely be gay?

Yeah well thanks for this tidbit. I personally don't think it's scientific at all. Homosexuality can't be studied under a microscope. No idea why people come up with theories that suggest you can. 😂

No. I was not born straight and don't even try to tell me what I was born as. We were born naked and covered in placenta.

Everything has been made empirical and objective these days . But on a serious note, it appears the very same people who try to use science to justify particular ideas are the first to refute it when it doesn't suit them.

Not everything is about sex. When I was in year 5 I didn't want to have sex with my female crush, but I liked her and wanted to hold her hand. That's all that young people think about when they have a crush on people and that can be of any gender.

Not trying to be antagonistic, but what do people in year 5 and babies have in common? No problem with you liking people, but considering your point sounds like a refutation, I just want to know the connection and relevance of your statement to what I said.

Okay, we've established that. What I meant to ask, perhaps, is what differentiates a homosexual from a heterosexual aside from sexual preference? Because that probably is your grievance with what I'm saying.

The fact remains, no-one is born a homosexual, or heterosexual - the differentiation in sexual preference comes as a result of interaction with the environment (with a partial genetic component).

Jesus - a year five boy can like a year five boy. That's homosexual but it has nothing to do with sex.

I dunno. There have been lots of studies comparing identical and non-identical twins where it is possible to isolate genetics. Turns out much of our behaviour has its roots in genetics. Certainly more than some might have speculated. That said, I agree that other have suggested sexuality isn't 100% genetic.
