Being any sexual orientation is NATURAL. Do you think heterosexual people ask themselves if being straight is ok? No. So why should being gay be any different? We are progressing as a society, albeit slowly but acceptance is happening all around us. Be true to who you are and most importantly be happy. Gay, straight, pan or otherwise, it's all beautiful and it's all love.

Of course not! Homosexuality has been scientifically proved to be a normal and innate identity. It doesn't make you better or worse than anyone else, you're still you, you just love people of the same gender. But how can something be wrong, if it doesn't hurt anyone and it allows you to experience the beauty of love, even if in a different way than others?

No absolutely not. You can't change who you are. You are hardwired to be you and you can help but be you.

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.

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!

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?

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!

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.

It is never wrong to be the person you are!

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

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!
July 18th, 2016 2:52pm
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.
July 19th, 2016 6:33am
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.

Of course it is not wrong to be gay. Many people think it is or that being queer is a "weird" thing. They think it's not normal. But the reason most people think this way is because some people (mostly older people) were raised to believe it is weird and abnormal. Sadly, that's just the way people thought back then but like most things in life, times change and we as people need to adapt. While I definitely cannot say that the LGBTQ+ community is completely 100% supported, I do feel that the support has improved in general. Plus people generally don't have any choice over their sexual attraction, the same way you can't force a straight person to have feelings towards their gender. It's something you are born with and it is in most cases genetic. So, to reiterate, no, there is nothing wrong with being gay. Just be you and then everything else will come naturally. And if people don't accept you, just remember this quote: "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter, don't mind."

Simple answer: No Complicated answer: To some perspectives, it might be. However, it's proven to be a natural part of you. It's not something you can change, and people may say some cruel things, but my love: You are never alone. Toxic people will always be around, but the best you can do it to cut them out of your life. Even if it's hard, it's okay. There will always be people who love you, and care for you. Because you are amazing

Nope then again it's not right either the same way being straight is neither wrong or right it just is
July 7th, 2015 6:06pm
Absolutley not! Is it wrong to be hetrosexual? is it wrong to like onion but not garlic? its all genetics. its not something you can choose, to be gay is a part of your life and who you are. dont hide it. embrace it. :)

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
November 15th, 2015 10:04pm
No! Not at all! Its just another thing that makes you who you are!

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.
November 17th, 2015 4:16pm
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.
