I think that gender and sexuality are based off of several different things, such as the environment, and the social aspect that is around the developing child, but I also think that gender, sexuality, and identity come about with a child's own sense of self when they develop it. I personally was raised in a very free environment. My mother wasn't gay or bi, but she didn't push me in any way, even when I asked her about different sexualities. I watched several kids in high school struggle because of was what expected of them and what they felt. I saw several of my peers wither under their parents forceful shaping, because they didn't fit into their parents mold. I even saw one of my friends, a straight A student who was very involved in activities and and afterschool clubs and such get disowned simply because she liked girls. Her pastor wouldn't even allow her into the church after her family found out. It tore her apart, and she dropped out of school shortly after. On the other hand, I've seen people come out and be supported in their choice, and flourish as an individual. Whether or not sexuality and gender is something that can be chosen or is genetic, I don't believe that people really have a right to judge a person based on their sexuality or gender. Their actions, yes, but not gender or sexuality.
