On the other hand we have all sorts of people who go out of their way to alienate themselves from the general society.
One highly visible area is tattoos. Talking here not of the small discrete tattoo but the guys and gals who get massive sleeve tattoos, tattoos on their necks and faces and just generally use tattoos to generate a massive "fuck you" vibe. Piercings and other body modifications as well, though to a lesser and less permanent extent. (Good article on this here http://www.city-journal.org/html/5_4_oh_to_be.html
I don't think that anyone would argue that this is not a choice or that they do this because of genetics.
Ditto other self-destructive behaviors that people choose to engage in. Drinking, whoring around (men and women) crime, drugs and a long list more. There are some long known genetic dispositions towards alcoholism but it is also at least partly a choice.
Why might not some people choose to be gay for similar reasons? "Hey society, you don't like homosexuality? Well fuck you. I am going to do this just to piss you off" Not saying that all, or even most gays do this. I mention it as one of many possible factors.
Or perhaps, since it seems a lot easier for gay men to get sex, they do it just because it is an easy way to get laid. Not much difference between a woman's and a man's mouth, is there? Why be fussy, take what is available with least hassle.
