Gay Issues & Sexuality

In today’s society, there is a label for essentially everything. With all the different types of sexual orientations and gender identifications, it can be confusing figuring out exactly who you are, and even more confusing to figure out who you like.

Maybe you had a crush on a girl when you were 12 years old, but you can’t distinguish if those feelings were admiration or lust; maybe you’ve dated both guys and girls and you can’t really determine a preference; or maybe you just have absolutely no desire for intimacy at all.
