Atheism is in the rise in developed countries with higher rates of education/big percentage of people with high education level so i don't think it's just a coincidence.
I remember being attracted to men since a very early age, i was too young to ponder about it and think about repercussions and any alternatives… nobody 'taught' me it as well. So i personally don't agree it was a 'choice', at least in my case, but i'm aware there are people who are actually bi and 'chose' to only have relationships with people of one gender after a certain point in their lives. Still, they didn't chose to like who they like, it just happened, but to 'allow yourself' to live it fully it's a 'choice'.
