"The issue has been hotly debated in the scientific community and among religious groups, some of which contend straights can become homosexual through prayer, counseling and shopping therapy."

some straights can stay straight, study proclaims!

some gays can stay gay, study finds.

some rocks may do nothing for years on end, famous scientist theorizes.

some grass may be green, independent of which side of the fence it's on, research group concludes.

some suvs actually haul crap, right wing extremist group finds.

some lava lamps display randomness, says the coalition of people for pot.

some music good for the soul, especially at 16.99 a pop, says a recently released RIAA study.

blah. i'm going back to bed. where's my drink?!

Pardon the pun, but is this considered flaming?

i think all this self-contradictory hype just shows that all types of gender studies are bull-pucky.

Friction is friction, that's what I say. Just close your eyes and ignore the whisker burn.

Everyone DOES know that the article was a sarcastic rebuttal to an article about 'gays turning straight'. Right? You do understand this was a joke.

Check the bottom of the article.

So, are these seemingly obvious articles proof that being homosexual is a decision a person makes in life, as opposed to being born a homosexual? It would seem that way to me.
