I am sicked and tired of hearing how gay and lesbian people chose to be gay and that it is a 'preference.' Black people talk about their strife and long waiting for a Black president and they don't have to deal with people thinking they 'chose' to be black or that they weren't born black. Their counter? Gay people weren't. And the other thought is that gay people suffered a traumatic event or where sexually abused as a child to be 'changed.'
