Who would choose this?

Here's a good one on the parameters of queerness, whether and why people might choose to be queer. Now, sexual orientation seems to be fixed for most people: it stays the same their whole life. For others, it changes, sometimes more than once. For a few, it is truly fluid. Some of us have a range through which we might express ourselves. We could explore one part, or another part, depending on many factors. Some really obvious examples of "Who would choose this?" Adventurers. Activists. People who get bored easily. People who believe that anyone trying to tell them who to love should just fuck the hell off already.
