I have been watching a lot of your videos on and gender.. and i have a boyfriend whos an extreme leftist. Hes really sweet and hes a great boyfriend.. we just don't agree with each other. One of the things he said was thats sexuality and gender are fluid. I sorta want to focus on sexuality part because.. if your sexuality is fluid then doesnt that completely invalidate people saying that they were born that way? If sexuality is fluid for everyone as he says. Then wouldnt that mean that even a gay person can be straight if they wanted to because "theirs sexuality and their preferences" is fluid? And vise versa. I don't understand at all to be honest. And whenever I try to talk to him as to why i don't believe sexuality and gender aren't fluid he just calls me a bigot. Im just super confused on this whole topic.
I do think that sexuality can be fluid for some people. I also believe sexual orientation can sometimes take a shift in life. I also believe the MAJORITY of people are born whatever way they are born and will not "shift." I think that all of these things are involuntary. You cannot choose to change your sexual orientation.
It seems illogical to me to take part for the whole, no matter which way you go. If some people have fluid sexuality, that doesn't mean all people do. If most people are solid in sexuality, that doesn't mean all people are. That's just how I think of it. That's my opinion on gender as well.
There is plenty of science to dispute your boyfriend’s belief but the problem if he is an extreme leftist is, on the whole, their take on just about everything is fluid and the truth is subjective. That’s why it is impossible to argue with them even though you may have the facts in hand. The truth is though, there is objective reality and objective truths. I wish you luck.
