Keep in mind that approx. 50% of people have a opposite-orientation experience in their lives. -I'll get the source of this statistics as soon as I remember where i read this from.-

I know for a fact that several people that originally posted here have changed over the years.   I recently read an article that discussed how a person's orientation can shift back and forth over time.  It referenced a study of 80 or so women over a 12 year period.  It was very interesting.   I doubt we will ever know for sure how it all works.  The important thing is to be true to yourself and your feelings, love is never wrong.  (when all involved are legal age of consent)

Las, did you read that in "Mother Jones" last month? They had an article along those lines.

yes! that is where it was.

and here is the link  Gay by Choice?

Should anyone decide to read this, please read the whole thing.  It does a good job of looking at both sides of the issue.

"It turns out that I didn't have the faintest idea what love was," he says. That's not all he didn't know. He also didn't know that his same-sex attraction, far from being inborn and inescapable, was a thirst for the love that he had not received from his father, a cold and distant man prone to angry outbursts, coupled with a fear of women kindled by his intrusive and overbearing mother, all of which added up to a man who wanted to have sex with other men just so he could get some male attention. He didn't understand any of this, he tells me, until he found a reparative therapist whom he consulted by phone for nearly 10 years, attended weekend workshops, and learned how to "be a man."


I thought the Oedipus complex had been officially debunked.

I put "bi."  I've really only ever gone out with girls, but I like to keep my options open.

Did you read the whole thing? They're just presenting that the way he believes it.

Straight. But love is love, things like sexuality can always change. This is why a poll would be so hard.

Well, I know that at least in some cases people changing how they would vote here is caused not by any real change but by getting to know themselves better. I know this is the case for me. Back when I voted on this thing I was still in denial about being gay.

Also people that are closer to true bi could easily appear to shift like that. For some of them sexual orientation may be more of a choice. Or they might find themselves pulled this way any that by their feelings. I know I call myself gay, but sometimes I find myself turned on by females. That seems to come and go though, and most the time I find they are more of a turn off than a turn on. So maybe there is a bit of truth to this shifting stuff.

Sexuality is by no means a simple thing.

I really was into girls before ':shock:'

Its really strange because I was straight (had basically no interest in guys) then before I posted that, for about two years I wasn't really interested in *anyone* and now I'm gay *shrugs*

You can tell from my post back in 2004 that I never really liked to define myself.  I don't know if you'd really consider me gay or bi -- I guess I could still force myself to out with a girl and could probably somewhat ejoy it, but that's not what interests me so I'm only dating guys now...  I guess that is a choice but the way I feel is obviously not.

This could still all change (but I doubt it) so who knows?  I'm sticking to the premise I won't define myself -- that would only serve to limit my options, anyway.

I'm bi, tho I tend to lean more towards guys than gals. (I'm a female)

I figure my soulmate is my soulmate, gender aside. Tho the guy I'm with now, I'm pretty sure he fits that bill '<img'>

I believe that everybody has the potential for loving either gender. :]

I wish I could have nulled my vote though. At first I voted I was "bisexual" though right now I'm thinking I'm actually straight. But of course, I have the rest of my life to find this out (or not) . I'm fine with not knowing my sexuality. I'll love who I want to love.

But I think I've found my soul mate. :3

I do wish this post was using the Kinsey Scale (no pun intended.)  From what I have read of people's posts so far it seems several people would be happier if they could have voted on a more flexiable rating system.  For instance the Kinsey Range goes from 0 being pure hetero, to 3 being perfect bi, and 6 for the purely homo.

Myself for instance, I'm a 2 on the Kinsey Scale (still not punning.)  I'm much more likely to be attracted to females, but I'm open to the male aesthetic and would have no hesitance in accepting a male partner should I feel he is the one for me.  I shy away from calling myself purely bi-sexual because I feel I don't quite fit the Bill (ok, a little pun there.)  Maybe other posters can understand what I mean by that?

I can understand that, I think there's very few 100% bi people.

I think it's because these boards aren't sexualized enough for the uber gay furs.

Yeah, that is the obvious image problem with the fandom - it's not the gayness that squicks non-furs, it's the openness.

I can. That's how I feel entirely. In fact, a friend of mine was doing a report on sexuality for a class and I took a survey she had. It was my first introduction to the Kinsey-Scale and I felt that I was a 2. At that time though, I felt the NEED to identify myself with a sexuality label. Now, I know better. :\

100% straight here. Never found myself attracted to a member of the same sex in any way. Never really found myself attracted to a women yet either, but at least I find myself admiring how they look, which I don't do for men.

Going to unpin and close this as theres been an updated version created. Its been noted that this poll isnt complete as it doesnt take into account Pansexuality or Asexuality.
