Today more children than ever consider themselves Gay or even something like Transgender and with lots of them it's not because they are Gay or Transgender, it's because it's become PC to ask them the big question before they are old enough to understand what it means.
Most have been told what Gay is but not been informed about what is normal for people who aren't Gay. They understandably decide they must be Gay because they have feelings they have been told are "Gay" feelings, but unfortunately not been made aware how normal it is for people of either gender who are straight, to feel just like they do.
Where we once called a girl a tomboy for wanting to play with boys, get dirty and do all the boy stuff, we now tell them that might mean they are gay. If a boy wants to wear pretty clothes and play with his sister's dolls, he's told that's a girl thing and he might be gay.
Telling young children that if they are more comfortable with members of their own sex means they might be gay is absurd because most really wont know until they go though puberty. Even participating in and enjoying sexual activities with members of the same sex is no real indicator, it's often no more than experimentation, that means far less when they are young than how they feel after puberty and a few relationships. Lots of people in prison have opportunistic sex with members of the same sex and that hardly makes them gay. Masturbation is proof positive that men and women enjoy getting off and all the hardware many spend money on proves they don't have to be in love to go to great lengths to get off.
Many Transgender people flip flop, sometimes more than a few times, as adults, so how can we ever expect confused kids to make decisions about emotional issues they aren't mature enough to analyze fully.
I think we were all better off when kids grew up and decided these things for themselves. We should stay out of their lives and let them grow up naturally.
