If they are a guy, I'd like to ask him if he would like to go shopping sometime with me.

Oh, and your comparison to liking brussel sprouts is rediculous. With any food you can acquire the taste for them later in life or lose the taste for them.
Aside from the gibberish above me, I'd probably buy them an ice cream cone and play a game of basketball with them.
What you do with you body is none of my business unless it is birthing children you won't take care of. Homosexuality is a kind of ironic solution to the immorality of having children prematurely from my perspective.
Acceptance of a person's homosexuality is the right answer (unless its self-destructive sexual deviation, which is much different than preferring one gender over another or being non-gender specific).
The person who chooses homosexuality or bisexuality may notice in someone expressing acceptance that someone who can accept such a foreign thing to them must be knowledgeable, because to be knowledgeable (in this case) is to accept something for what it is indefinitely. Now, I'm not saying the smartest person to walk this Earth would agree or disagree with homosexuality or bisexuality, but the person who chooses one of the two paths would categorize the one who accepts their decisions as worldly because the two agree with each other.
The problem with objecting to a person's decision for homosexuality or bisexuality when it is not the effect of self-destructive behavior is that I may have my opinions and stance against homosexuality, but should I only hold them for myself because expressing them serves no substantial purpose to anyone's conscious well-being. Even if there were psychological implications of homosexuality from a subconscious level (as a Biblical reference: "porneia", which one may 'succumb' to), such shrouded activity would be undetectable to the reactive persona and the only possible result of anything I could possibly say would be rejection. To religion: That means you would actually deter people from your churches instead of enticing them if you got upset about their being homosexual or bisexual.
And while homosexuality and bisexuality is intrinsic to variants of self-destructive behavior (just as heterosexual intercourse can be), those who are making the decision to be either bisexual or homosexual and are even remotely healthy-minded should not be subject to criticism for the above reasons. And even so, those who are suffering from their acts the stemmed from self-destructive behavior should not be criticized either, actually; unstable or damaged psyches can adversely react to negative stimulants in their environments (and good intentions can be twisted into bad ones from the perspective of an unhealthy mind).
So at the end of the day, offering acceptance of the person's decision and sometimes offering an ear to lend in the future as needed if the person shows signs of unsureness or hasty decision-making regarding their sexual orientation.
My best friend is gay, nothing changed when i found out, it was just "Ohh you're gay,... alright that's fine, it doesn't change anything."
Of course! If I had a friend who later turned gay, I'd shun him FOREVER!
Same thing goes if I had a gay friend who later turned hetero!
FYI its not "are you gay" its "to what extent are you gay" -referencing Ron White
likewise, on one side of my family, the majority of family members are homosexual, and on the other side, bisexual- none of whom I've ever met or had contact with.
so, yes, to say there is no genetic component to sexual orientation, I would well beg to differ.
The Brighter the Light the Darker the Shadow
Again, I would not condemn a friend that I later find out to be a homosexual. I don't agree with their choice, but it is a choice anyone is free to make.
k, since you seem to have completely ignored my post, perhaps the American Psychological Association can shed some light for you.

the notion that people just wake up one day and go "oh, I'm going to be a homosexual now" is just garbage really.
You are quite right though that people do have a choice. people have a choice in that they can lie about who they are, have failed relationships, marry someone they don't really love, be miserable and alone their whole life, and succumb to stigma all so that people will see them as "normal".
The Brighter the Light the Darker the Shadow
I'm not saying I know exactly how this works, but I do know for a fact, after having made gay, bi, and trans friends, that all of them didn't consciously choose to be the way they are. Sure, in addition to genetics, environment may have had some influence, (and in some cases a huge impact), but neither genetics nor influence from the environment is one's choice.
I wouldn't mind, I'm a very open minded person. And seeing as i'm bisexual, it would be hypocritical to judge them.
"Fire all you like -- I'll just be taking attendance."
I guess I wouldn't care............
They chose and THEY will live with it
So and doesn't have all that much to do with me
I've make quite a few gay and bi friends myself. You assume I haven't?
