Question: Is Being Gay A Choice?
Answer: Although many researchers continue to debate why some men are gay and other's not, most psychologists believe that being gay is not a choice—specifically since sexual orientation develops in early adolescence without any previous sexual experience. THe American Psychological Association says, "Although we can choose whether to act on our feelings, psychologists do not consider sexual orientation to be a conscious choice that can be voluntarily changed."
