    No gay gene has been found, and it has been looked for.

    No proof has been offered of any intrinsic physiological difference, present at birth, that distinguishes gay from straight consistently.

    Experts in the field are divided in their opinions on causes.

    We have Orion, who is homosexual, rightfully noting that that any attempt to say "all gay people are gay because of this one cause" is to ignore a massive amount of individual variation, and to ignore that individuals have the capacity to choose or change in at least some cases. I agree. Pointing to any one thing and saying "this is the source of the gayness" is probably ridiculous.

    Of course I cannot prove that all people are born bi-sexual which is why I made sure to say "I feel".. Just sharing "my" thoughts.
    Hmm, I was never attracted to ANYONE until I hit puberty...

    Really? I was attracted to boys in elementary school. In fact, the only thing I ever got in trouble for in school was passing an "I <heart> you" note to my 1st grade "boyfriend".

    I'm pretty sure that doesn't count. That's more of a thing where children want to be 'grown-up'.

    Children have sexuality, it's just underdeveloped.

    I'm pretty sure children aren't sexually attracted to eachother. Evolutionary there would be no reason for it and I certainly didn't experience it as a child. Sure, I could tell which kids looked more like tree stump than an actual human being but I don't consider that sexuality. If by underdeveloped you mean not yet present or noticed or acted upon, sure I'll agree with you.

    It is common knowledge in the field of psychology that children have innate sexuality. We don't just go from having no sexuality to having fully adult sexual personalities simply due to puberty. Those behaviors are rooted in the human psyche from birth in our innate foundation; they just become more activated and amplified via puberty.

    The way children act out those feelings often is mimmickery of adulthood and not serious, but the ground behaviors are definitely there.

    Okay. I never knew kid who said he or she was gay as an elementary schooler. This is because they don't know. If anything they'll chase around the opposite sex because that is usually what they see. The field of psychology can say whatever it wants, the fact is there is no sexuality the way there is at an older age still remains. It's simillar to how and 8 year old girls chest may still be breasts because she is a girl, but they certainly aren't developed in anyway and they certainly don't lactate.

    Why do I feel like we're arguing over semantics?
