I am not homophobic. I am curious. With the deluge of information out there can anyone give me a definitve answer...are there indicators in as young as toddlerhood in boys that will predict a homosexual orientation...my friends and I were discussing this last night and no one seemd to have an answer they could back up with any solid evidence...any advice????
I dont know about definitive answers, I am not an expert, however I would say from perception and some knowledge of child behavior, No, it is learned behavior,for a toddler to be doing anything homosexual he would be copying it and someone would have shown him .I doubt if it would show an orientation ..
Some people say that they knew they were different from as far back as I can remember. I say it's possible. I do NOT see how they would display their feelings at that age. Most kids still have 'cooties' until they reach about 12 or so, at least that's how it was when I was in school. If a toddler is acting in a sexual manner, and it isn't just normal exploration, chances are that they were exposed in one way or another to that kind of behavior, whether it was a movie, watching someone else, or being abused.
