    Probably not in the true sense. They can chose to perform homosexual acts and not actually be homosexual. (It's called acting). But I believe someone who is truly gay didn't wake up one day and say, "You know what? I think I'm going to be gay." I believe most were born gay, and it wasn't a choice.

    Gay and lesbians aren't gay by choice

    However straight women can be gay by choice

    THe choice is whether you act on your feelings or not. You can be gay/lesbian and never have gay sex. How lonely would that be?!!!!

    Apparently not. But you can choose to have sex or not.

    No they do not.

    But a bisexual person could choose to only explore say his same sex interest and so to people looking on appear to have chosen his sexuality. Where as if he choose to only seek opposite sex interest, people would just accept that, no one would be saying he choose to be straight.

    Nobody chooses their sexual orientation.
