Is sexual orientation immutable?


Born this way? Maybe not..

It seems this is based on Lisa Diamond and her research.

Some things to note is that she based her research on the ~3% of the population that did not identify themselves as hetero. She concludes that of that 3% fluidity is the norm rather than the exception.

I think when you can permit yourself to acknowledge your sexual desires do not conform to social pressures, you can also permit yourself to be more fluid.

It seems very likely that sexual orientation is not immutable, it can change over a lifetime;however, that does not mean that a persons orientation at a point in time is controllable. It also seems to me that a much more important question is: if a person is happy with their orientation why should they want to change? Just let them be.
