It's possible for children to know they are gay, even at an early age. Just as other children know they are attracted to the opposite sex. Neither gay or straight 12-year- olds should be thinking of sex till they are older, of course.
* In the meantime they just develop their appreciation of what being gay is. They learn what it means. They look for gay friends, and they have straight friends as well. They might talk about being gay with their friends, or they might keep it a secret till they are really confident. * They might tell their parents, or they might wait till they are older, as parents often say, "Oh, you're much too young to know." (They wouldn't say that to a straight kid, would they?) If your child tells you he or she is gay, then listen carefully to them and don't say anything you might regret later. They may have thought about this much more than you have. Maybe for years. Remember, gay people can't change into straights. (Is there any chance of you, straight parent, turning gay?) So treat your child's words with respect. If they are gay, then you have a task ahead of you, smoothing out the bumps in the road. The first thing you do is show them you love them and accept them for what they are.
If you think your child might be gay but hasn't told you yet, you can help by showing a tolerance and respect for gay people that you see in the media and the news. If your child realizes that you are accepting of gay people in general, then they will be able to deal with their own situation more easily. There is nothing wrong in being gay (homosexual) but children as young as 12-years-old are unlikely to know for sure if they are or not. This age they are entering puberty and having mixed feelings about their sexuality. They may get confused and experiment with the same sex because they are more likely to have friends the same sex. Discovering themselves will come later. Not all gay people tell their parents or friends that they are gay. Some feel they cannot because of their parents attitude towards gays. Some because they are ashamed of being gay. It is still somewhat a stigma in many societies around the world.
Every gay man I have talked to can look back to his childhood and see the signs that he was gay from an early age -- frequently way before age 12.
On the other hand, a lot of boys in early adolescence have sexual feelings for other guys. Early in puberty everything seems sexy! Give yourself a few years to let things settle.
Yes. It's important to understand that you can be gay or lesbian before you ever have sex, just like you can be straight before you ever have sex!
i am 12 and i am a bisexual it is completely normal but at your age i would not say lesbian just bi probably
Not necessarily, but 12 is a hard age to know for sure. Kids that age are liable to latch on and hold tight any person they like, and sometimes that can trick the persons brain into thinking it's love, when really, it's just puberty messing with your mind.
On the other hand, when you ask most adult gay people, we'll tell you we were gay when we were 12, even if we didn't realize it yet!
Absolutely not! Sexuality is something you can't help. You can start developing feelings for certain gender(s) at a young age, or an older one. Don't feel ashamed for what you are, no matter what people say. If you think you're gay, you probably are. Age doesn't affect this at all whatsoever.
What about them? Since you are born Gay, at any given point there are going to be some that are 12.
. Some are. I found out Im bisexual when I was 12. One of my close friends found out he was gay when he was 9
Cheeks: okay-ish (if he was dared)
All above is gay...
But it's okay to be gay. Don't hide it.
Yes, of course. I knew I liked girls when I was nine years old. Love isn't limited to a certain age.
Gay=boy hug/mary/kiss another boy lisbeind =girl hug/Mary/kiss another girl Very SUS question!
If hes not gay you cant make him that way
come down with dat gay stuff!!!!!
If you are a girl who wishes you were a boy, then you are transgendered, not gay. If you are a boy who wishes you were another boy, this has nothing to do with being straight or gay.
if you are attracted to anouther boy you are gay. If you feel like you want to kiss them than you are gay
No not really
Most women fall in love with men because of their personality - women don't go for physical looks as much as men do, as a rule. You find a nice guy who makes you feel good and makes you laugh and enjoys doing the same things you enjoy, and slowly you go from being friends to being boyfriend and girlfriend.
You can't make anyone kiss you. If he really wants to than he would.
Some things are just impossible to do. You can always just come up and kiss him, but he is likely to punch you and will probably figure it out. Perhaps it is better to let this one get away until you are ready to come out of the closet.
How one gay boy acts towards another gay boy varies depending on his personality. He might be friendly or he may feel intimidated and shy away from any conversation.
