    I'm just curious of what the biggest risk/chance or the most you'd be willing to give to just be straight, Or match your birth gender.

    I personally would do most anything for it, I'd even risk my life if I had to for a true shot at being straight.
    I'm curious about others what would you do? that is if anything at all.

    I'd risk a lot to have a male body. I am risking a lot to have a male body.

    But if it were a choice to be born cis, I don't know. Being trans has been pivotal to my character and who I am now. I think if I were cis I'd be a very different person.

    As for sexuality, I would not change it.

    I used to want to be straight. I would've given my left arm to be stright! Hell I would've given both my arms and my legs! But as I got older and accpeted mysefl more there is nothing I would rather be than gay. Well maybe the queen of england. It's something I'm proud of now and I accept as who I am. I've learned a lot of great lessons becasue I am gay, I've become (in my opinion) a pretty good person. I don't know what my life owuld be like if I was straight and I don't want to know.

    Ew why would I want to be straight? There's a lot of sexism, power imbalances, and dumb hypocritical double standards straight men force on women. No thanks. I'd rather deal with worldwide oppression by straights than have a partner that would make me miserable.

    As much as I am struggling to accept being attracted to women, I actually in no way would change it. If I woke up tomorrow and found myself only interested in men I think I would feel an incredibly strong sense of grief.
    Despite all the confusing and debilitating emotions that can sometimes come with this, I'm actually glad I am attracted to the same-sex. I don't know why. It just feels... Right. Anything else would make me not feel like me.

    Being gay is part of what makes me me--and I'm pretty awesome! If I wasn't gay I'd be someone else--and I suppose it's always possible that that person would be this awesome but I certainly wouldn't count it. I'll stick with me, gay ol' me.

    I don't think I would have always answered this way, but today I wouldn't want to be turned straight. It's not been easy - it's still not easy - but I wouldn't want to grow up without the insights that I got from being an invisible outsider; I think that's one of the major factors that helped me develop a sense of empathy that I don't see as strongly in many of the straight, cis people (evangelical Christians, the lot of them, who are not known for their empathy for people of other orientations, gender identities, or - for that matter - races) I know in real life.

    I'm risking a lot just being transgender. Heck, I'm worried about being treated like some pervert just for wanting to use the men's locker room at the local gym. As for my sexuality, I'm still working it out, for the most part. I'm at this point where I'm not sure anymore, I don't know but I doubt I want to change it(whatever it is).

    I wouldn't risk anything. I don't want to be straight. What I want is to fall in love with a guy and be totally accepted.

    Well hearing the majority say no to even giving up anything whatsoever to be straight makes me strangely feel like "if they got THAT comfortable with it" than there's hope of a nice adulthood in my life.

    Pretty much this~

    Heard it varies by area, but it's seemingly prevalent in the south US where I'm stuck.
