I didn’t even know what gay was ,when I was 8 or 9.
She is in the entertainment business, so probably had it explained to her, and then , of course, the church.
I wonder if I was born later, people would think that of me.
I’ve always loved sports. My dad took me to a lot of high school football games, hockey and baseball.
Later on, college games, ACC mainly.
I hated dolls and Barbie dolls. I loved sweatshirts with sports team. I’ve always hated flowers. I played baseball, basket ball and flag football, without the flag.
I had more guy friends than girl friends,
That was probably because our neighborhood had mainly boys.
I didn’t even liked guys that way until I was in my early 20s, just before I became a church member.

How about if we restate the idea? Something like:
"It is, on average, more difficult for such people to have a loving relationship with anyone."
That is true, isn't it? A person who is abused by authority figures and not protected by people who should be protectors will have somewhat more trouble learning to trust and love later in life. There is great variability around that generalization, with some people suffering little trouble and others experiencing extreme difficulty, but I'd bet that by such measures as divorce, substance abuse, psychological illness, etc., there is on average a significant cost associated with abuse.
