People that ask the question; usually are gay. Straight people dont even consider the question. If you are a straight man; the thought of sex with another man makes you angry and disgusted. If you have these questions...find a man that will help you answer them.
Friendly, if the thought of gay sex makes a man angry then I would assume that person has some sexual issues and fear of their own. Why would gay sex make a truly unquestioning stragiht man angry? Suspicious! I know a lot of straight men that aren't in any way angry about what I do in the privacy of my room or back seat of my car. They may be turned off and disgusted by the nature of anal sex but ...hey I know straight men and women that take it up the rear too because it feels good. So check your anger, ask why you are reading this "How do you know if you are gay?" blog and then be real.
I read you forum post "How do you know if you are gay?"
If you are confused about your gender, look at either your birth certificate or your plumbing.
You certainly don't need to wear mascara, lipstick, or makeup to figure this out. A female chimpanzee looks great with lipstick and clothes, but that does not make a chimpanzee human, does it? Even if a chimpanzee feels more human wearing cosmetics, there is no society on earth today that will register birth and death certificates to chimpanzees, because they feel like humans.
If they were born from a chimpanzee mother, they are a chimp. If you were born with a birth certificate indicating that you are male or female, go with that. Otherwise, you will always have an acceptance complex that the majority of homosexuals have. They always have the need to gain other peoples acceptance, because, they never feel good about themselves.
Do yourself a favor, be the person your mother and father, gave birth to. If you go contrary to this. You will never be at peace with yourself, no matter how much makeup you wear.
I'm bisexual and I always developed romantic and sexual feelings for both girls and boys when I was a kid. I didn't really separate noticing cute boys and girls, to me gender didn't matter, the separation in my mind was between friends and people I was attached to romantically. I think you always know what your sexuality is from childhood when you first become attracted in a special way to boys or girls or like me, both. Gay people know their gay just as simplistically and intuitively as straight people know they're straight.
I don't know ..I have only ever been attracted to men, maybe a gay person could answer this correctly, Im sorry I can not give you any kind of answer, I am stricktly a heterosexual....but every man or woman should be allowed to be themselves and love who they love, I have nothing against any man or woman just due to their sexual preferences, it is not my place to judge another in that aspect.
Well, you can tell by who you like. If you can sexually be around a man and not care then theirs a good chance your gay or bisexual. Strait people have a reaction to when they see a gay activity if there strait and around other people. If your alone, normally you can tolerate viewing anything much better because you don't need to worry. I have a friend whose gay who can't help but blush around almost every guy he's around just a like a schoolgirl. Normally, it is then followed by the natural reaction to when a man likes something.
I'm a gay man. I knew from as early as 5 years old that there was something 'different' about me. I was drawn towards the same sex emotionally, and despite my young age, even somewhat physically. Given the era i was raised in my feminine characteristics were either beaten or ridiculed out of me, thus I have grown to be a masculine man with many masculine interests. Many people can't tell I'm gay. I think that is a product of my environment, but had I been left without the ridicule and hatred I very well may have turned out to be feminine in mannerisms like so many gay men are. How does a person tell if they are gay? I think they have always known. In the early years they may not have identified it as homosexuality but the latent feelings, longing for someone of the same sex, have always been present. nature or nurture? I'd have to say I'm a product of nature. If a grown person is still struggling with whether or not he/she is gay then i would have to say that it's likely they are bi, there's no gray areas when it comes to being gay. It's easily identifiable.
I can't remember when I was last asked if I was a 'hetero'. I find this odd. I want equality. I want folks to start threads about what it takes to be heterosexual. Or plain walk up to me and ask when did I know, what games did I play, what did I eat or what made me heterosexual.
And I want the query to come from a gay man or woman. I think they've every right to ask such a thing, judging on the on-going curiosty from us socially acceptable heterosexuals.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander
P.s. - I chose to be heterosexual. After all, it's a choice thing right?
Well put! What does make a hetero? I'm curious to know. However, I question whether or not it is a "choice thing". Would you choose to be gay at some point in your life, if even for a moment? And would that make you gay, or would you still be straight just experimenting? I think there's a clear definition between a gay man, a curious one, a bi, and a hetero. No significant 'choice' exists. Nonetheless, I will begin to question the heteros about their sexuality. Brilliant idea. I'm interested in seeing what responses I will get. Cheers.
I think sometimes when people want to experiment then its a choice thing but the seriously gay people I believe are born this way. I knew I was heterosexual from a very young age. Being heterosexual just isn't as interesting to some people and thats why they don't wanna know about straight sex lol.
As a gay man I can say that being gay was definitley my mothers fault. She decided she wanted a gay son and brought me up in a totally gay way. Yes the food that I was fed was gay food, always pink in colour and my school tie was a pink feather boa. I played gay games including hide and peek, was sent to ballet school and was only allowed to wear a pink tutu. I was introduced to make up by the age of 11 and now refuse to leave the house unless my makeup is perfect. So yes being gay is totally by choice, just in my case it was my mother who made the choice!
Wow thats an interesting question. I have a son who is gay, he is 28 years old and I could tell by the time he was 5 that he was going to be gay. He loved to play with girl toys, not boy toys, he was very soft spoken and like to walk around with my high heels on, we thought it was cute and it actually was. He came out to me when he was 18 and thought that I would be shocked, I told him I knew before he did and we both started laughing and I let him know that no matter what he is still my boy. I happen to think he was born like this. With all the prejudice that people have to deal with, I can't imagine that anyone would choose this lifestlyle.
I have met a few 'serious gays' myself and they were not all born gay. Two old friends of mine, they were in their late 40s/early 50s, living together for many years, in a committed homosexual relationship. One of those guys was straight for half his life then changed his mind. They are most definitely gay.
What I mean by seriously gay is people who are gay and know it and are not going from bad hetero relationships and all of a sudden "decide" that they want to be gay. I think a person knows if they are or they aren't.
im a pansexual female so ill answer this best i can. when i first realized my sexual orientation (at first i thought i was just bi, and i didnt approve of gays or anything) i noticed i started having feelings for some of my female friends. i started find some girls that i met sexually attractive. for a guy it would be the same.
Do you think that maybe we are all gay, but many of us are in denial? Truthfully, this is one of those problems with humans, we like to catagorize people. He's strait, she's gay, he's a rebuplican. Maybe there is a reason. Perhaps we want to feel like part of a group, special. Truth is that we are all bisexual, everyone of us. We just don't admit it and we supress it or we have been raised this way or that and our environment has trained us to be repulsed by homosexual acts. On and on.
So, I challange you all to open your minds and free yourself from these bonds of social stereotyping and just be free and be yourself and do what makes you feel good, and love who you want to love.
How? Be a person who knows what YOU want and don't listen to anyone else. You can be manipulated to "feel female" with very complex high-tech mental manipulation. This doesn't mean that you are a "female trapped in a Man's body", you are being fooled with powerful subliminal presentations. If the idea of doing something is repellant to you, then it's probably not something you want to do. If your refusal to "come out of the closet" brings ringing in the ears, people talking weird or doing hand-gestures which freak you out, calling you "yellow",stalking, ANY mind-f66k games - this is YOUR ENVIRONMENT, NOT YOU. To avoid living a lie based on electronic body-stimulation, look into my hub page.
