    Yup. At one point I got so frustrated I bought her the biggest ones I could find, damn near pillows (she's tiny), handed her money and said, "if you don't like these YOU buy the ones that suit you".

    I think they indicate in the article that the study did compare against single hetero dads. Personally, I'd find it more realistic if the study concluded that gay parents are just as suitable as hetero for raising children. A person's character, emotional balance and level of commitment seem like more relevant criteria than their orientation.

    For me, the first time my daughter wanted to have sex would be the mental crisis. Puberty and the anatomical changes I understand, the emotional changes and rebellion are more challenging to adjust too.

    For a 12 year old with gay feelings who has always been taught that guys go with girls, it can be like "why the hell do i feel this way when this person is around?" and believing it must be a phase rather than a crush. But the attractions are still there. I know all too well this is how it can go.

    Often for prisoners as well, there is no attraction, just the behavior cause again they're desperate to relieve urges to screw *something* Many people can manage sex with a person they're not attracted to at all, just having the mind wander.

    Boy howdy!

    I lucked out, my daughter was going through a discovery of Christianity at the time and boldly commanded to me that she was not having sex until she was married. Smart dad I was, I took the opposite argument, guaranteeing she would stay her course. Gotta love the predictability of teenagers.

    The problem with your position is that you cannot say that there is no attraction, because it is possible that the attraction is there, but the conditions have not manifested themselves such that the person is aware of the attraction. Again, you can't say someone is attracted to something, until they are aware of it.

    They wouldn't be attracted to opposite sex then. The term has meaning in that lack of attraction alone. Besides i didn't claim it happens to everyone. Such confusion can be common at start of puberty i would think, but not for an adult.

    What I am saying is that there is no way to determine if someone is attracted to something, unless they are aware of it. And if it is the case that people can be attracted to things that they are not aware of, it is possible that everyone is homosexual, and it's just a matter of the conditions manifesting themselves such that they are aware of it.
