    No I agree with you. I was more concerned with other things, which is why I kept/keep pressing. Based off the stuff I have read over the years, the general consensus from research in this field is that there is likely multiple factors, and multiple ways in which sexuality manifests. Many also seem to believe that a single mechanism in which it occurs will ever be found, due to the inherient complexity of it all.

    As far as I can tell homosexuality and heterosexuality are just recently invented social constructs with little scientific basis. The only reason why people are even bothering to prove this stuff scientifically is because the LGBT movement currently finds such a divide in sexuality to be politically helpful towards their aims.

    And just think, the ancient Greek city-states valued homosexuality and made it part of their culture.

    Anyone can sex with anyone or anything!!!!!!!!!!!! Who you are aroused by is NOT a reason for whom you should or could LOVE! If that were the case, I'd indentify as a Poly Demi bi-sexual into kink and D/s. That is the fleshly side of me, not the spiritual side. Feeding the flesh will not lead me to a higher spiritual plane, or glorify God, which I (and you) are made for.

    I could be aroused by pretty much any sexual scenario you can imagine, with pretty much any gender or probably even animal. But I'm not about to define myself thus!! I'm not an animal. I'm a higher-minded human being. God made me for more than that. He made me to spiritually love Him and possibly my Divine partner. And to unconditionally love all humans.

    Let's stop letting our sex drive us. It debases you and makes you commit sexual immorality by living by the desires of your flesh.
    And what if God's divine partner for others is indeed of the same gender?

    That's fair. I have actually met a guy before who identified as straight until his 30's, then realized that women just weren't doing it. Experimented with some guys, and it was like he had an epiphany and suddenly realized that is what he was looking for after all this time, then came to the conclusion that he was bi, but leaning more strongly gay. Interesting note that stuck me, is he did not seem like a very self-aware person at all, so it fit. As I said, sexuality can be really really complex. I have to remind myself of that from time to time since I identify as exclusively homsexual so I am always on the other end of the spectrum.

    My Divine partner, if he exists, has the sex of a male. He might be slightly gender-confused, but he will be a male nonetheless.

    Yeah, ancient greek men used to have sex with boys at parties... They were without christianity. Hmm... I wonder if that was before the birth of christ? assuming they didn't have an opportunity to meet christ.

    No. They didn't. They engaged in male on male sodomy and pederasty, but they didn't use such activity as a means of personal identity.

    Damn it, I bought into another historical myth. Sorry about that.

    So you're just condmning sex in general? *sigh*. I'm not going to discuss this with god in place, as I said in the past you can' not prove he exists, so I have no reason to take it seriously. Thus I won't.

    And, actually. We are by scientific definition, an animal. Human, but still animal with animal urges.


    And I am going to quote this in highlight:

    If that were the case, I'd indentify as a Poly Demi bi-sexual into kink and D/s.
    Why would you suppress that? Sexual kinks and release are completely normal and healthy. They are things we should express and release. Assuming of course it's with a partner(s) that are mutually receptive to it.
