The Colonel you mention proves nothing. You say that no one knows whether he was gay all along and then 'came out'. Doesn't that include you who doesn't know?
However, I do personally know several people who have stated to me that they were gay long before they came out. Some of these people were with women, some were not, before they came out. Do you know of any single person who has stated that they were straight with no attraction to the same sex, an attraction to the opposite sex and just decided to flip? Is there a single anecdotal story of such, even from a country where it is not taboo to be gay???? I seriously doubt it. Your claims that there are 'documented cases' have not been backed up in the least.
People here have asked you to answer a very simple question. Could you choose to be gay? You have refused to answer. Yes, the question is a trap for such as you. If you answer no, then it lends support to their point. If you say yes, well, you just couldn't bring yourself to say yes because you're so friggin afraid. Of What? That it might actually be true? That saying it might make it true? Well let me tell you, unless you're already bisexual, you won't be attracted to men, ever. You're safe, ok? If you are bisexual, then just deal with it. Be at peace with yourself. But, above all, quit taking it out on people who have already managed to find their peace.
The other things that some gay people have told me is that while they were growing up and on into their adulthood before they came out, they were cruel to other gay people. The cruelty was different for different cases, but included political activism, virulent name calling, job discrimination, job harassment, property destruction and in extreme cases gay bashing. It is as if they believed that if they were cruel enough to gayness, it would leave them. It didn't. Eventually they came out.
