Being a Liberal--and proudly so--I may change my opinion on an issue in the face of new facts or compelling argument. And so I do that in this thread. I have decided to become homosexual. Here are my reasons:
I can revel in the "friendship" people show me on the Internet, on the street, from "ex-gay" counselors, within a whole shitload of court decisions and legislation, and, of course on Mudcat.
I can have sex without worrying about pregnancy.
I can have sex and enjoy the risk of getting HIV.
I can enjoy special treatment when I apply for a job, because most employers prefer to hire gays.
I can enjoy special treatment if I go to prison.
I can enjoy feeling universally loved wherever I go, because everyone is so friendly to people who "choose" to love someone of their own gender.
And so much more...
I have "decided" at the age of 30(++) that I will make this change in my life, because to not do so would suggest that I was unable to make correct choices.
