I've felt for a long time that my sexuality is exactly how it is because of my gender presentation. I think if I never had to question my gender when I was a child, and to have struggled with feeling a disconnect between what gender I wanted to be, and what gender I was born as, then I feel it would be probable that I'd be straight.

There's no way to 'know' this, but I do know that the narrative of my understanding of my sexuality doesn't match those given by people who feel that they were 'born' gay. Plus, well, I'm bi, and I wonder if bisexual people feel they were 'born that way' in the same ways that a lot of gay and lesbian people talk about.
This reminds me of the bit in 'but i'm a cheerleader' when the butch girl with the shaved head and skater clothes is crying and yelling "but i like cock!!"..
I was more gender identified as a male i suppose when i was younger..i'm not sure if this affected my sexuality. My sexuality and gender identity is very fluid and there are times when i am more into men than others (i always prefer women i would say though)- I'm not sure if this matches up with when i am feeling more feminine or masculine.. perhaps i should take notes! lol. hmm..
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. lots to wonder about. Arn't humans interesting wee beasties?!
