Choice

Everyone has a choice, including having no choice. I saw a post about how some people have no choice in their sexual orientation, gender identity, appearance, disability, and race. The following text was my reply. Added a few more info in arrow brackets.

Orientation, possible, I almost saw a gay guy turn straight for this one chick, she turned him down.
Gender identity, definitely can, people can have sex change. Although xx or xy chromosome remain.
Appearance, thats what fashion and plastic surgery is for.
Disability, yeah I agree. But they can choose whether that disability defines them or not.
Mental illness, unfortunately I mostly agree, some people are just so down that they cant see the light of day even if it was shining on them. But some do get a breakthrough when they full embrace their power.
Race, interestingly, technically possible. u might not be able to change ur dna, but extensive plastic surgery and a few cultural classes, u cud act and be another race.
Truth as it turns out, is subjective. The truth I submit to is an individual can be powerful when they know they can have choices and they do something. It is more powerful to say that I am the way I am because I CHOOSE to be who I am, rather than because I have no choice. Although having no choice is also a choice.
