I believe I was born homosexual, that is the only explaination I have for why I am a way that I don't wish to be and remain homosexual despite 20 years of attempting every method ever heard of to try to change.

And I have no problem telling you to "shove it" if you decide to diagnose my "problems" without my specifically asking you too.
