Am I Gay? I guess this is a question a lot of young people will have asked themselves during their confusing adolescent years. Of course, there are the lucky ones – the majority – ( you know the popular kids). Those people for whom their sexuality has never been in any doubt. Not to be one of the majority…..not have the same appetite for the opposite sex does not immediately make anyone gay.
Faced with this feeling of being different, young men and women may react in many different ways. Only a few will cope with the situation easily. Some may become reclusive; some may turn to bullying others; some to drink and drugs. This act, and the feeling of a need to prove themselves to their family and friends, will often only exasperate the problem. It is a time when some may even come to consider suicide! (that’s a new kinda hell)
Puberty, arrives at different times for different people. There is nothing wrong about being a late developer – talk about late. I just discovered people actually get gray pubic hair-. And even once everything is found to be in working order, it is quite normal for the feelings and the desires that arrive around this time to be “strange”, to say the least! The sudden explosion of hormones the body has to try to make some sense out of can for some bring forth quite peculiar urges, fascinations, and attractions. It could be a teacher; it may be a friend – it could be anyone.
Sexual orientation is not hereditary. It is what you are.
Being gay does come with some burdens that heterosexuals never have to face. For instance, there is the gay scene – known by all to be notoriously promiscuous – and although it is representative of less than a quarter of all gay people it is what a gay person will always be seen as being a part of. Next there is the whole “coming out” saga. Should you come out to family and friends, at work,… knuckle up or shut-up?? And last staying “in the closet”, it will not be without some implications.
We now come to the crunch question: How do I know if I am gay? Ouch! These sit-ups hurt. I suppose the simple answer is – you just know. Gay, straight or bisexual, – you are you, and you are unique. Whatever sexuality you may be, no two people are ever exactly the same – not even identical twins. Be proud of who and what you are!
Here is a crude question, what makes you “cum”?
