I'm still waiting for a detailed explanation of the specific thought process that biz used to "choose" to be heterosexual.
You'll be waiting forever. My personal choices are none of your business and are certainly not up for debate here.
Of course, he'll continue to refuse to produce one because his assertion that sexuality is entirely a choice is complete bullshit that he is unable to defend with any kind of argument that makes sense.
Quite the opposite. I've already produced an argument that makes sense.
Despite the number of you who continue to argue vehemently against my position, your combined effort has yet to produce a single reason why sexuality should be defined the way you say other than "because we say so", which is meaningless.
When it was pointed out that virtually every implementation of a Socialist economy has eventually failed, he "explained" that it was because Socialism was never implemented "properly". Though he could never define what that meant, yet continually claimed that he did, but that none of us intellectual inferiors could understand it as he does.
I really don't want to get dragged into an off-topic discussion about another thread from months ago, but it is necessary to point out the fact that I did define what a proper implementation would be. The nutshell is that a proper socialist community includes only those who want to be a part of it because they realize it's ability to provide them with a better life. Many claim there is no incentive to produce in socialism, but if you don't produce in such a community, you get kicked out of it and must return to whatever other society will take you and would no longer benefit from the socialist community you value you so much.
If you want to discuss it further, create another topic. Let's stay on topic here.
He trolls. He's not trying to make a logical argument or prove a point. His one and only goal is to provoke a response.
Do you think everyone who dares to disagree with a majority viewpoint is a troll? "I'm BL and if anyone disagrees with my ideas, they are a troll!"
BL, I don't care if you or anyone in this thread EVER responds to what I'm saying. Stop responding right now and it won't bother me in the least. But when you do respond, I will respond in kind if I so desire. That's how message boards work.
Bistiza, I want to clear something up. You might have answered it earlier, but I'm not going to read this whole thread.
Do you define sexuality as:
A. A sexual preference or attraction
B. A lifestyle choice
Because there's an important difference.
Sexuality is defined by who you choose to be with in romantic and/or sexual relationships or encounters.
"Most times gender is an important preference; sometimes its not as important. It depends on the person."
Laughable. It's just not true.
The statement IS true - but not for you personally, so you can't understand it because you have no ability to see things from anyone's perspective but your own, much less from a neutral one.
The only thing that is "laughable" is your attempt to debate anything while never being able to see beyond your own point of view.
I gave you examples of terms assigned to people that aren't based on actions. Orioles fan. Not based on actions. Based on preferences.
Apparently you didn't read what I wrote before.
An "Orioles fan" indicates a preference for the Orioles. Having a preference and what you actually do are two different things. There is no way to establish that you're an "Orioles fan" (other than you saying so) unless you take action to show it. In the same way, there is no way to establish someone's sexuality (other than them saying so) unless they take action.
Someone saying they are something isn't a reliable method of determining what they are. If it were, many criminals would claim innocence and be set free, and I'd be the billionaire batpope because I said I was earlier in this thread.
So given that what people say isn't reliable to determine what they are, the only accurate way to do that is by their actions. Hence, the most accurate and logical way to determine sexuality is by who people choose to be with in romantic and/or sexual situations and relationships.
This right here is my justification for defining sexuality by choice. I've already stated it many times, so for you to act as though I haven't is either denial on your part or you showing you haven't been reading.
In this case there might have been an intelligent argument to be made, but you sure as hell aren't making it.
I made the argument a long time ago, and it's held up against a group of people for page after page now and none of them - including you - has put up so much as a single counter argument for their own side except "we say so".
So give me one. Tell me WHY sexuality should be defined by attraction rather than action, and please say something other than "because we say so" or "we agree so we're right".
