It is amazing how much time is spent on the question of how much choice a persons has in their sexual orientation. Here is a great article from Scientific American on the issue.
Although I find the question fascinating from a scientific viewpoint, it is a question that ultimately just shouldn't matter. Even if sexual orientation was a choice, does that change anything? Why would that make it any more or less acceptable? Why someones sexuality matters to anyone else is something I have just never understood. Why should I care who someone is attracted to? How does the sexual orientation of someone else matter to me?
I just don't understand why people discriminate based on sexual orientation. I can understand how someone might think homosexuality is a sin but there are plenty of other sins that people do all the time and it doesn't result in nearly the same amount of outrage. Can someone please explain why sexual orientation is still such a big deal?
