Yes, the GPL is "take it or leave it".  Your options are:

 "take it"  -  include GPL code in your work and comply with the GPL.
 "leave it" -  don't do the above.

Some people think that the GPL forces the "take it" option on people.  It 
doesn't.

Does that answer your question?  Or did I misinterpret it?
