You know, even if we somehow equate adding same-gender options to existing characters as "external forces changing their sexuality" I still want my Consular to be able to flirt with Nadia even if she does turn her down. I don't think the characters need to be altered to allow them to be open-minded to the possibility of same-sex romance.

Also, speaking from personal experience, external factors can play a part. No, you don't "turn gay" nor can you "cure gay", but being faced with new facts can reveal facets of our own person we did not reckognize before that - someone who is gay or bi might not realize it until it "hits them", so to speak.
