At what age does gayness start?

I would probably agree that origins are no later than birth but trends may manifest well before puberty. However, if no identity for the phenomena exists then one may not have the opportunity for that identification. And even once one identifies a preference a decision as to an extent of participation may not lend itself to a given identity.

Flamboyance may be another topic altogether.

So, was she straight at that time?
That is really odd. Reminds me of a woman I know who lives as a Lesbian now whos really Bi. She always professed her affinity for the hmm part of the male anatomy. Now that shes acts as if she is just a Lesbian. Face it you can't have a thing for a Johnson and declare yourself a Lesbian to?

You lived in Iran?

I think it starts after birth but at an early age. When people say they were born that way, I think it's more likely the case that they were that way for as long as they can remember which to the individual conflates to birth.

At what age does transgenderness start?

Homosexuality is common in many species of higher mammals.

So no, it isn't "brainwash"ing.

Likely it starts at meiosis.

No one had to brainwash me. I've felt this way for as long as I can remember.

perhaps the question in this case is when does bigotry start?
