Gay: Natural?

So, are people born homosexual, or is it a choice they make. Is it a genetic thing, or is it something brought about by their environment, trauma, abuse, or any other social factors?

Born that way or not?

I say: Born that way.

EDIT: And let me just say, before this gets out of hand, we're not arguing about whether homosexuality is right or wrong, here. Just how it comes about in people.

I say people decide.

Example: Woman has a bad experience with a man. She turns to women.
Example2: Someone in my school was straight, but 2 years ago decided she was a lesbian.

Is it possible she had a bad experience with a man because she was a lesbian, and just didn't understand that yet?

Is it possible that two years ago someone in your school discovered she was a lesbian, rather than decided?

I think it's both.

Let me explain...

From personal experience I know that there are varying degrees of homo- or bi-sexuality. Some women have had bad experiences with men (rape, incest) and don't feel like they can trust them, so they turn to women for love, because they are more comfortable with them. Some people date the opposite gender for a while because it's what society dictates, not how they truly feel.
Some people are comfortable showing their sexuality to both genders. I tend to think bisexuality is more natural than strictly one way or the other. I do think people have genetic predispositions towards one thing or another, but ultimately, we make up our mind about who or what we're going to be.
This does not mean gays are making it up. Or that lesbians haven't "found the right guy" or something. Just that human emotion simply does not play on only one level.
I'm sure most guys here have been attracted to a male at one point or another. A so called "guy crush". But the social conditioning (that instant revulsion you feel when you think of being gay with someone) makes you hide that part of yourself.

Like the Weezer song says,

"Everyone's a little gay"

I think people just decide it. When people get older, they realize new things, finding things they like, and things they don't. Maybe Homosexuality is one of those things.

You can't really say if they are born with it or not, since it's just the way they think, and not a illness =/

I think people are born that way in 95% of the cases. I'll allow for some who have had terrible experiences in their lives with the opposite sex.

But saying that people choose a lifestyle like that is ridiculous. Why would anyone choose to be a minority group, hated by several, spurned by most religions, and denied basic rights?

My opinion is that people are born into their destiny. They can slowly discover themselves throughout their lives, but I believe that some people were born to be gay.

I don't know what to think. Some people decide to be gay, and some people just fall into it. It's quite curious.

EDIT: The existence of gay people could be used to prove the existence of a divine being, if they're born that way. Why would evolution spawn a being who's sexual urges went against the goal of evolution, to reproduce?
