"@lauriloo: Nooo, it's all about gender self-identification and orientation."
The point, which you seem incapable of understanding despite what so many of us are saying, is being gay isn`t just who you want to drat. It`s who you want to have romantic love with and that can be experienced way before a person starts to have sexual feelings. I don`t know why you say "gender self-identification" unless you are specifically talking about transgenders. Gay men don`t want to be women unless they are transgender. They still see themselves as their original gender so there`s no "gender self-identification" any different than you knowing you`re a male.
BTW- I started masturbating and looking at my brother`s dirty magazines (for the forum stories in Penthouse) before puberty, so puberty has very little to do with any of this. Puberty had no affect on my being straight and wanting to be in love with a man.

Parallel to this, every "trans" person I've ever seen on TV said they knew they were the wrong gender as a small kid. They had no concept of all the things that implied - social roles, expectations, hazards - but still knew what they wanted. So I don`t see why knowing you`re gay should be any different.

I'm not saying it "cannot happen"! Obviously it can and does. I THINK that it`s unlikely to be "permanent" and life-long. The mix-master of puberty throws most of your childhood experiences into the blender and hits "puree"...

Again, you think being gay is only about sex. @lauriloo: Nooo, it's all about gender self-identification and orientation. Children can "have sex" at a sickeningly early age, long before puberty, but that doesn`t mean it`s a good idea. Same for "hetero- vs homo-" in a child.
