Why are you gay

DLZ

because Hitler, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, Saddam Hussein and Mussolini made being gay popular.

Please clap.
I was strongly attracted to girls and women from as far back as I can remember.

Had girlfriends all my life. Good relationships that lasted for a while but then fizzled out due to lack of long term compatibility.

When I entered the fandom, I dated a gay furry I met. It was kinda fun but I decided I still wasn't gay.

Then suddenly a couple years ago I got a boyfriend who matches me completely. He is transgender, but not planning to have surgery or anything. He passes for a dude when we go out but in the bedroom it's like being with a girl.

I would never have believed such a thing years ago if you told me. But I'm super happy, more than ever before.

You never truly know. Stay open minded. Trysexual!

Why? Girls don't like me. Yes it's that simple. And I get too horny, too fast around them.

Isn't bi gay and straight at the same time?
no. it's bi.
gay means guys exclusively.
straight means gals exclusively. (if you're a guy)

you cannot be bi and gay at the same time. and you cannot be bi and straight at the same time.

I'm asexual, what does that make me? Neither gay or straight? Both? D:

who would you like to be your partner? not really as much as who you'd bone. just who you'd be attracted to.

me? I'd be attracted to REALDOLLS©. therefore.. I am REALDOLL©sexual.

It is actually quite perplexing why male homosexuality is observed to be fairly widespread in the animal kingdom. There are numerous explanations, including the 'sneaky male' hypothesis, which only really works in harem models of reproduction and which I don't find compelling.

I think the best explanation is that the complex of genetic factors which determine sexual attraction are pleiotropically tied to other functions, so overall those genes have a fitness advantage even if they do occasionally combine to produce an individual who is predisposed to be gay.

This idea would be compatible with the observation of the 'brother effect' whereby a man with more older brothers is more likely to be gay- presumably because of changes in the uterine environment caused by previous pregnancies.
Genes can be inactive unless they are 'triggered', so it's possible that a mosaic of genes which could produce a homosexual male is increasingly likely to be triggered by specific uterine conditions.

So maybe everyone has the gay genes, and we just need to activate them with gay porn?

Lol no.

I think an apt comparison might be sickle cell anaemia. If you inherit two copies of the sickle cell gene then you get the disease, very bad. if you inherit only 1 copy then you get boosted immunity to malaria, very good.
Hence in regions of the world where malaria is endemic, the sickle cell gene has a lot of success, eventhough as much as 10% of the population may die from sickle cell anaemia, the gene survives as long as malaria is a bigger threat.

I doubt there is a single gay gene, but maybe the situation is sort of similar, and there is a cluster of loosely associated genes which determine libido.

Why? Because I invited some boy I met on FAF to Fur The 'More 2015 to be my roommate...... and then things uh... happened..

i realized i was gay by getting a chub watching guys do butt stuff

Because I like dicks?

You don't have to be explicit, it was just a friendly question. Please don't be so sexual in my thread.

Please can we stay on-topic? This is not an asexuality thread, though please feel free to make a thread about asexuality to have a lively and wonderful discussion about that!
