Man oh man, does the dialog on this issue need to change. The "I was born this way" broken record needs to be seriously replaced and soon. Not only is this not getting gay rights activists anywhere, but it's demonstratably untrue.
Let's say a guy goes to prison for ten years and has no contact with women. For that whole ten years, our hypothetical convict only has sex with other men. Upon being released, our subject only has relations with women and never looks at another man. Is he straight or gay? What about male prostitutes that are only "gay for pay?" if it was purely a matter of biology then neither of those scenarios would even be possible. There is a danger with attributing human behaviors to genetic propensity. Given any other "oppressed" group and the idea of genetic causation would be considered racist and dehumanizing. Rightfully so I might add.
Better yet, go talk to a bisexual over the age of 25. Most homosexuals identify as bisexual in their late teens and early twenties, but you don't find too many 30 year olds publicly announcing that they swing both ways. Why is that? As it turns out, I've met and associated with closeted bisexuals quite a bit in my adult life. Most bisexuals, that I have met, are heterosexually married and publicly identify as straight. I did meet one gay man who was bisexual and hadn't breached the subject with his boyfriend yet, but he still only identified as homosexual in public and didn't talke about his bisexuality unless the subject came up specifically.
So why are bisexauls publicly choosing sides but privately doing what they've always done? Maybe it's because the gay community doesn't want them. The very existence of bisexuals undermines the political foundation on which gay rights is built. One of the bisexual men that I knew told me about how in college he tried being openly bisexaul. The result was that his straight friends wanted him to act like stereotypical pansy while his gay friends were always wanting to talk discreetly with him about his "confusion." You can tell people who identify as "straight" or "gay" about the Kinsey scale all day, but they generally don't want to hear about anything doesn't fit into the current political orthodoxy.
Sexuality may not be exatcly be a choice, any more than one's "choice" of a favorite food or style of music, but it isn't set in stone either. The real track that gay rights should take is that what a person does in their bedroom isn't up for public debate. Unfortunately, "it's no one's goddamn business but my own" doesn't work as a gay rights bumper sticker since the nature of the gay rights movement brings direct attention on the sexual behavior of individuals. Too bad since that would probably get them much farther than pretending that their kink is some kind of birth defect.
Having said all that....
Sexuality is NOT the same as religious preferrence of political affiliation when it comes to hiring for positions where the individual is going to be working with CHILDREN. Rest assured, if Mr. Hubman were a happily married heterosexual and it came to light that he and his wife were into the BDSM swing scene, he would be directly out on his ass. The only reason he is even able to be considered for this position is due to the political movement surrounding gay rights. Sorry folks, but when it comes to most people's kids, you don't have any rights. In a perfect world, what this man did in his bedroom wouldn't matter one wit. We live in a world where children disappear and get trafficked for the illicit sex trade on a daily basis. The last thing we need right now is a potential predatory pervert in charge of our children's well being.
