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.

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 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!

I was raised as an East-African (Tanzanian) and Catholic, and I was taught that being gay is a wrong thing. I asked why and it's because in Leviticus, one of the verses says this: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” This means that you cannot be gay in this point. In my opinion, homosexuality is quite normal in America. I understand that many countries in Africa DON'T allow it due to its highly religious rules. In other words, I don't think it's wrong to be gay, but if you are highly religious, then yes.
