I saw this topic in another group and it has got me to thinking, maybe I am gay because of the confusion from the childhood trauma I went through. EDIT: I was 7.... it ended at 10. Perp was my Uncle. He left for the service, that is when I told others. I'm not a troll. A few are uncomfortable with this kind of post and have tried to start the whole "troll" thing so that no one will take me or others seriously. Just ignore them.

    Well I was going to ask if you think that "made you gay" but I'm assuming you're unsure? How old were you when it happened?

    Was it a woman who molested you?

    How long did the abuse go on for?

    I doubt it... You can't help who you fall in love with. Many straight men were abused by men, didn't make then gay.

    Do you prefer to be called gay? Lesbian? Or something else?

    The way to know is ask yourself if this plays a role in you decision making, or if it ever did. I'm sure it does some, but not others. Like any other part of our personalities our childhood plays a role, but is not definitively the cause.

    Nope. Do the research. You are born with your sexuality.

    I know mine played a huge role in why I became attracted to women. Doesn't mean it's the ONLY reason though.

    Quoting kngarber:

    Actually the medical field as well as the mental health field are in agreeance, people are born with their sexuality. Molestation can't make you gay.

    I had not given it much thought really, until a post in another group. A member brought up some interesting points. She was really smart about it, not mean, scientific. I was 7 and it happened over a 3 year period off and on.
