Is being straight a choice?
Being straight is the basic framework of evolution. We're only on this earth to reproduce with women.

If it was entirely environmental, you'd get not as many closeted, frightened folks from intolerant places (the Sout') as you do. The environment is harder to study for, though. It's true that there are far more queers in cities, and that's not just because of uban/suburban migration patterns.

Still, it's based on who people are. So 80% nature, 20% nurture is a safe bet.
Homosexuality seems to breed from intolerance. That's why you'll find that almost half the male population of Barbados is Gay-and rising. It's something about the oppressive, overly religious conditions in places like that where homosexuality seems to grow and multiply like a fungus.

That kind of generalization can't be made.

I'm glad you feel that you have a purpose in life, however fucked up it is.

Interesting, but totally wrong. Queer persons get the least crap about who they are in the cities, and the cities tend to have the highest queer populations. This isn't just a matter of safety; the amount of queer persons born is higher in more metropolitan areas...and by extension (and by data), more developed countries. There's a reason Thailand has the largest population of transpersons in the world, and it's not because it's particurally oppressive against who they are.

And where the FUCK are you getting 50% and up?

I think it could be plausible. or how its existance would make sense just because there is an opposite to nearly everything in this world.

Well, if we were "evolving" into homosexuality (the select few of us), wouldn't the gene for this trait have died out with the people?

No. Its an ongoing thing that will never completely engulf the population, or completely die down.
It will be something that will just vary, like being left handed or something.

Hmmm. I guess it could be more apparent, but societal norms restrict it, although it's been getting more and more accepted nowadays.

I lean towards it being a genetic trait, or at least somehow affected in a subtle way that defies choice.

Uhh... just because something may be genetic does not grant it any positive standing. It is at best an anomaly. Sickle cell is genetic too. It does not mean however that we need to promote it and celebrate its cause as a condition among people.
