Not at all. Being gay is not a choice anyone has made. People are just people. Please, if you are feeling confused upset or sad about reactions of others talk to a therapist, connect to your community, talk to a listener here you feel connected to. I am here for you friend, feel free to reach out and find support where you can, know that you have it here.

No. It is perfectly alright to be gay as it doesn't define you as a person it just helps make you who you are, it just affects who you are romantically/sexually attracted to.

No it is not wrong to be gay. It is perfectly normal, just like it is to have any other sexual orientation. If you are gay then that is totally fine, it is you and nobody should say that being who you are is wrong.

No, what's wrong is to judge and butt into other people's sexuality. Being gay does not define you, and it never will. Don't worry so much about what other people will think of you, go kiss that person you been into. Go be proud of who you love and send off rainbows and happiness! Acceptance and understanding is key.

It's not wrong to be gay. Just like there isn't anything wrong with being straight. You are who you are and you like what you like. Sometimes we as people can't help who/what we fall for. We are all only human at the end of the day. Don't be hard on yourself just because you are different/ Being different is what makes you unique.

Of course not! Being homosexual is never wrong, you just have a different interest than the majority. It's never wrong to have any belief or way of living! As long as you don't do anything harmful to others, no one should discriminate against you.

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

Of course not! Don't ever think that something is wrong with you just because you are gay, No not everybody is going to be on board and happy with some of the choices you make in life however, It is your life and you are what you make of it. Love is Love and that's just how it is. We can't control who we love or who we fall in love with. Be happy with yourself and understand that no matter what anybody says or tells you about how wrong it is or any rude opinion they may have that it doesn't change anything. You are who you are, You have to love yourself for others to accept you. Don't ever be ashamed of who you love because none of us can control who we truly love.

No, being yourself could never be wrong. Therefore being gay, is the same as being white black or anything else.

Of course not. Despite what people may believe its a very natural thing. The only thing wrong is the people who tell you that it isn't natural or okay.

No, it is not. You can not choose what your heart feels. Love is love, and no one can stop or judge it.

Not at all. Be proud of who you are and who you love. Love is beautiful no matter who you are with.

In no way, shape, or form is it wrong to be gay. There is nothing wrong about loving someone of your gender!

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?
