Do you believe people are born LGBTQ+ ?

If this is in the wrong section I am sorry.

Do you believe people are inherently born this way or is it learned?


At what age do people normally know they are?

  • I believe (nearly?) all men are born clearly straight of "gay". However,
    I believe that the complex hormone and emotional mix inherited in DNA gives some guys no predisposition to homosexuality and others some to varying degrees which can either be brought out by life experiences or eventually predominate for unknown reasons... or be filtered out by positive life experiences
    As I look back at pre-puberty, I was fat lonely, and felt mostly unloved by my mother. Fortunately, my father was no better. Not so much rejection as indifference. So no switch was thrown. But I found a same-age gal pal and we got surprising intimate together, although completely ignorant about sex. I knew more about the female body at 12 than most sexualized teens because all we did was explore and look.
    This was one of those childhood experiences that psychologists don't talk about because of positive consequences. I am resolutely straight and absolutely love everything about the female body. Flat? No problem. Hairy? No problem. Lippy? No problem. Dark pigment in intimate places? No problem. I love being straight.

  • I put it like this, when I was born, I didn't have an inclination of what it was to he attracted to anyone. I had to grow up and learn how to interpret my feelings to the point where I was sure what I liked. Now, during that time, I was bombarded with things, heterosexual was huge, I was influenced mainly by straight couples, and people who wanted to be with the opposite sex. Saw pretty much only that. So when I grew up, I didn't even know or understand what homosexuality was, until I had friends that were gay. So point is, I think a lot of it is nature vs. Nurture. What you are influenced by. What your brain picks up, are you spending time immersed in one or the other, it both.

  • I think sexuality like many other kind of preferences can change, but it can't be forced. Forced to act like people don't have that preference, but that's it. Gender identity and feeling the need to express it through clothing preferences and mannerisms however is mostly due to social pressure. Which is perfectly normal.

  • Born that way, but I think sexuality is a continuum. A LOT of people are somewhere in the middle.

  • Some are, some aren't.

  • Yes, I do. But it's probably a sliding scale like most things. Some will be strongly hetero or gay and never change. Others will decide their favourite later or at a stage in their life when it makes sense.

  • Born this way but might not be fully aware if raised within straight-is-the-only way culture.
