Heterosexuals and homosexuals can choose (at some level) the type of behaviours they will exhibit. But exhibiting some heterosexual behaviours will not remove a gay person’s sense of same-gender attraction or make it go away. The reverse is also true. Much as a left-hander who is forced to behave as a right-hander, it is not the person’s first choice and will usually be less comfortable. Human beings all get to make choices about how to conduct their lives, but not about their feelings of sexual attraction. (Marcus, Eric. Is it a Choice? p 9-12. NY:HarperCollins, 2005.)

Avoiding and suppressing does not dissipate the heart's natural yearnings. It just stock-piles emotional energy. In addition, shutting down some emotions and feeings may shut off most other emotions, as well. (Rix, Jallen, EdD. Ex-Gay; No Way. Survivial and recovery from Religious Abuse. p 13-14; 190-196. Scotland: Findhorn Press, 2010).
