When Did You Choose To Be Straight?

I came across this video today and of course, absolutely loved it. People seem to have a lot of opinions on why being gay is wrong, or blasphemous, or why they don’t personally agree with it. The idea that someone ‘chooses’ to be gay is beyond me. I don’t know how you can choose or determine your genetic make-up upon creation. The next time I hear someone arguing or criticizing ‘gayness’, you better believe I will be asking them this question:

Here’s another really great video. I love the idea of flipping the stereotypes around on each other. The results are always the same. When you switch the victims of oppression or discrimination around, it’s then that you see how absolutely ridiculous it is:

One last video that isn’t necessarily about sexual orientation but it was created by students from Saskatchewan. It already has over 500000 hits. It looks at the representation of gender in advertising and how ridiculous it would be if we were to switch the roles around:
