    :( People do not CHOOSE who they are attracted to, whether they are straight, bisexual, or gay…

    He said he DOESN’T choose to be attracted to both sexes… Implying it’s not a choice. So, what’s the friggin’ problem?

    The problem is, I think I just threw up at the bisexual comment… NOT cool people, its just wrong and disgusting…

    There is a choice as to who you are attracted to, and how you express that attraction.

    There is no reason that it should be wrong for a man to like both guys and gals,Artcreator is just an idiot.

    Oh my… it’s not wrong to be bisexual… but with people like AntCreator who complain about it, I wonder how much Pastis got on this day…

    You think you threw up? So you’re not sure whether the contents of your stomach sprayed out your mouth or not?

    It’s true that you cannot choose who you are attracted to. You CAN, however, choose how you act upon the attraction.

    ArtCreator is really mean. There is nothing wrong with being attracted to ANY gender

    God created man for woman, woman for man. That’s all I’m going to say. :)

    In fact we all evolved from the same asexual being, quite a long time ago.

    Actually, Benny sounds like he does choose.
    Anyway, I wonder what Pastis’ intent was with this strip. Was he making a comment about what certain people do? The only “desperasexuals” I’ve run across have been “straight” guys who would basically take anything female.
    This joke in this strip was not worth the controversy. Regardless of any given reader’s opinion on the subject, the strip would have been better without the “choose” statement in panel 2. (BTW, both “chosen” and “born that way” are inaccurate oversimplifications, but most people don’t care to learn enough about the subject to see that.)
