It is possible to change sex.

It is possible to change race to some extent, if you define "race" to include things like religion and language, which, in practice, almost everyone does: Jewish, Hispanic, ...

It is possible for someone with homosexual tendencies to adopt a purely heterosexual lifestyle.

It is not possible to make a hard distinction between "things you can control" and "things you can't control". In practice it's a continuum. It would probably be easier for me to become Judaeo-Spanish than for some overweight people to become thin like I am. I have a lot of sympathy for overweight people because I myself have a completely uncontrollable appetite. I just can't stop eating. Fortunately my metabolism can cope with it and I remain thin despite being too lazy to get any exercise.
