My son says he "always knew" since he was young.
No he was never abused.
Came from a loving two parent home with a father that is manly yet sensitive, wise and kind.
I always knew I like boys more than girls. I remember being quite young and feeling a "tingle" whenever I saw some of the boys in my class.
I didn't know why I felt this way until I got much older but I always knew that I liked the boys.
You are trying to figure out something very simple.
It's a matter I believe of hormones and hard wiring of which we are all victims of the bodies we were given.
It is not a "matter of choice" as some self-righteous bigoted people want to believe.
Love sometimes knows no boundaries or sex, love sometimes just is.
You can't always chose who you fall in love with. As long as that person is kind, intellegent and adds to your life who is to say if it is right or
“I don't think homosexuality is a choice. Society forces you to think it's a choice, but in fact, it's in one's nature. The choice is whether
one expresses one's nature truthfully or spends the rest of one's life lying about it.”-Marlo Thomas
“In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being,
without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.”-Simone de Beauvoir
“The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love
heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.”-Lynn Lavner
When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one. ~Epitaph of Leonard P. Matlovich, 1988 (Thanks,
Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands? ~Ernest Gaines
No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody. ~Rita Mae Brown,

What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains. ~Tennessee Williams,

About a year ago I was a guest on a network news show in New York. They were showing film clips from a gay pride parade down Fifth Avenue, but they
only decided to show the part with men in dresses and heels. I had seen the parade, and there were men in business suits as well. After showing the
film, the newsperson made some comments, and I found the comments extremely offensive. "This is what's wrong with the media," I said. "You show
a fringe position. You show one point of view. You're closing the minds of the people by not showing them what the reality is." I got up and
walked out, and I've never been asked back again. ~Kathleen Nolan
