It is never wrong to love someone else or feel attraction. Being gay or any other sexuality is not a measure of how good of a person someone is.

Is it wrong to be straight? Everyone would say "No" immediatey. Why? Because society says so. It isn't wrong to be gay/bisexual/pansexual, etc. Homosexuality is a sexual orientation, just like heterosexuality is; the only difference is that the first one is stigmatized.

It is never wrong to be gay. You can't help who you are, so if you're gay that's who you are and you should in no way be ashamed of that?

Yes, it is wrong, it's antinatural. It's not at all a good habit

No, of course not! Why would it be wrong to be gay? Being gay is just like being straight, it's a sexuality and they can't be wrong. it's just who you are

No, it's not. There is nothing wrong with loving who you live no matter what gender. There will always be people who say hurtful things about people who are gay, but ignore them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with loving the same gender.

Being gay or any other sexuality is not wronger than being straight. People tend to think so but it is not at all.

No! You can not choose who fall in love with. You can't control the weather or time and you certainly can't control who you fall in love with.

Being gay is not wrong. You were born gay and it's okay. Love is love.

No, your life's decisions are entirely your own, don't be ashamed of being gay. It is okay to feel attracted to the same sex.

It is not wrong to be gay, no matter what anyone says. Be yourself and love yourself. You have to realize who you are as a person and hopefully those people that said it was wrong will learn to love and support you.

No. Under no circumstance is it wrong to be gay. While I am not gay, I am pansexual, which means that I am interested in dating anyone with any identity. Some people may try to paint any identity that is not straight as something wrong, but I promise you that there isn't anything wrong with it at all.

We should all be free to love whomever we want to. Love is the same wether it's between a man and a woman, 2 women or 2 men. As long as both people are happy and care about each other, neither is at fault.

Absolutely not. No matter what anyone tells you it is not wrong to be gay. Unfortunately, there are people who will ridicule people who are gay but it is not wrong.

There is nothing unnatural about being gay. You are loved just as you are!

No, it is not wrong at all. Gay people didn't chose to be gay, just like straight people didn't chose to be straight and bisexual people didn't chose to be bi. Everyone should be able to love who they want to love, and being gay is no different than being straight except you like the same sex instead of the opposite one. There should be nothing wrong with that.

No, I believe being gay is something that you are, it isn't really a choice or a conscious decision to prefer one gender over the other.

No. You do not choose who you are attracted to. It is actually something that is wired in your brain. If your brain is wired like that since birth then it can not be wrong. It is normal and natural.

This is an impossible question to answer because everybody has a different opinion on this extraordinarily subjective concept. Personally, I feel that one's own sexual orientation and identity does not reflect, in any way, the moral principles of an individual's character and humanity. So, the short answer to this question is 'No.' Hope this helps!

Not at all, it's perfectly okay to be of any sexuality, gender, etc. You're awesome just the way you are :) You're not alone in this!

It is definitely not wrong to be gay. If you are gay, it is because you were gay from the moment you were born. It is just as much a part of you as your hair color or your height. You can't change these things, no matter how much you try. You are you, and you should love yourself as yourself. Best of luck to you! - Meagan

As someone who I among the LGBTQ+ community I do not think so. I used to ask myself this question a lot too because I grew up among a family that told me that it was unacceptable and wrong, but I no longer think this way. Being gay is simply just loving someone of the same gender which I do not think there is anything wrong with that.

No it is not wrong to be gay. Being gay is something you can not help. You can not control it. Don't be ashamed if you are gay be proud of who you are, because you are you and you are perfect just the way you are even if you are gay.

It is not wrong. It is not a choice to be gay you are born that way just like straight people are born that way. It is not something that you can control and it had been scientifically proven that it is in the genes so don't worry about it you can't change it.

It's not wrong. It's natural part of your character. You cannot choose who you love. You are born this way. Although it may be hard to accept at first, one day you'll be comfortable with the fact that this is who you are, and no one can make you anything else.

No not ever. Being gay is a part of who someone is. Its just like having green eyes. Its a part of you but not all of you. You can't control it and you don't choose it. It just is. Society gives messages that one thing is "right" and another is "wrong" but that is untrue. There is no one way to be, and there is no "right" way to be.
