"Is being gay a choice?" Why the question matters

The reason that it matters whether or not homosexuality is a choice is because of the homosexual recruitment myth. If you believe people can choose to be gay, you believe people can be recruited into homosexuality. From that belief, it's only a short step to believing that homosexuals do recruit people into homosexuality.

Check how much anti-gay rhetoric either implicitly or explicitly rests on the assumption that homosexuality is something that is taught to people, children in particular. The worst of it even goes so far as to claim that this teaching is intentional on the part of the "homosexual agenda".
