    It's ridiculous. One of my nieces best friends announced that she is transgender when she was barely even a teenager.

    Biologically, it is quite normal for animals to have a same-sex phase in youth and intermittently thereafter. It's our sick society and feeble-minded preachers that force people into a binary mindset.

    IT's honestly not that surprising that kids are coming out that early what with there being more recognition of homosexuality is compared to back then when it wasn't really talked about as much.

    Speaking for myself, I had an attraction for guys around 7 or 8 I believe. I still remember my first male crush and how I would look at other fellow boys and find them cute/attractive (The tingling feeling in my heart mind you. Kind of like butterflies in your stomach lol).

    Before advanced internet, it was much much different and difficult coming out. Other than cassette tape, there was no real recording device(s) to which your coming out would apply. If your parents were 'advanced' enough themselves in the early 70's, they may have had a Super 8mm film recorder, for home movies. We as a family, didn't have one but my neighbors parents did

    I have seen late 60's early 70's clips of us kids riding our Big Wheel (toy) or so I was told, walking around outside wearing mom's high heel shoes. Because I was a puberty late bloomer (almost 15 years old), I suppose it was then, that I discovered I liked the same sex, when the usual teen hormones finally kicked in. icon_confused.gif

    Maybe there are a couple factors now, more boys are reaching puberty earlier than in the past, combine that with todays on line, know everything instantly, technology with LGBT acceptance, its no surprise how young they come out today

    Too young, not mature, how can they declare they are gay, or anything, for that matter? May be it is what they feel today… I had my first girl-friend at the age of 14, but look at me nowicon_lol.gif Kids Kids Kids! your growing up is not finished. And I think you cannot stop maturing, and decide this today.

    I knew I was attracted to other boys when I was 6 years old but I didn't finally come out to myself and the world at large until my late twenties, after years of mostly futile attempts at dating women where my heart (let alone my libido) were ever really into it.

    I knew I was different from about the age of 6, but really couldn't put an identity to it until I was 13 and realized that shirtless guys did a whole lot more for me than girls in bikinis. I owned it to myself at 14 and came out to a few friends when I was 16, fully out at 17.

    I think when I was about 13-14. It was innocent at first, I had crushes on actors/celebs on TV. I dated girls in HS and college, it took a while for me to come out, I officially came out and acted on my feelings when I was about 22.

    Well, I don't know what a "real homosexual" is, but I do know that I had crushes on girls before I was 13, which is when puberty happened and hormones kicked in. After that girl crushes just sorta went away. In retrospect, when I was a kid, I also had some weird pre-sexual fantasies involving guys even when I was as young as 3, but that's it. I didn't even know what sex was until I was 11 and learned it from the Catholic school I went to. My parents kept me pretty sheltered and never gave me "the talk", they just let the school handle it. Presumably, because they knew I was gay and were too chicken shit to have that conversation. And you better believe gay sex was not part of my sex-ed. So for that first year when I was 13 I didn't really have any context or labels for my feelings I wasn't even sure if other guys felt that way. Then I learned the word gay and that that was a thing, and it made sense. I think the difference between me and these kids in the videos is that they were exposed to these categories, whereas I was not as a kid. Sapir-Whorf ftw.

    I started thinking about sex when I was 4, although I had no idea how to materialize it, I just knew I was attracted to guys. Some kids develop this instinct faster than others.

    A lot of these kids just want attention. YouTube is a jumble of herd mentalities.

    For me, I started realizing I was different in grade 7. At my school, that was the year PE class broke up by the sexes. The boys class started playing basketball. The coach would divide us into teams: shirts vs. skins. I found myself staring at shirtless classmates and feeling that inner flutter in my stomach. It didn't help that we had to take a health and life skills class in which we learned all about the changes in our bodies and about how "having strange feelings is perfectly normal and you are not alone." I kept noticing how my classmates' bodies were becoming more defined and how I was fixated on certain people. It took years to admit the truth to myself, but growing up in a fundamentalist Southern denomination helped that delay along nicely.

    It was both my parents who knew, and they tried some mild intervention. Nothing extreme like being sent away for anti-gay conversion therapy, I'm not sure that quackery existed back then.

    One method was hypnosis by an MD in his office. I don't believe it accomplished anything. BTW, I was not told the true reason for the sessions, instead that they were to address my "nervousness".

    Another worked a little better: getting a home tape recorder. I wasn't told the real reason for that, either, other than being a parlor novelty to record and play back voices for our amusement, and to play some musical recordings. On an open reel-to-reel in 1962.

    At the first playback I realized what an embarrassing, over-accentuated, faggy voice I had. Horrified, I ran into my bedroom and wouldn't come out for a day. And for the next week I hardly spoke unless necessary, in clipped, short sentences.

    I began to work on making my voice sound more manly, and deeper. As flat and emotionless as I could, almost robot-like.

    A few months later the recorder disappeared without explanation (no music was ever bought for it), and it was never discussed again by my parents. But that gimmick did seem to work, because I lost most of my effeminate sound on my own, without my parents ever needing to correct me about it themselves. Nothing like feedback and harsh reality.

    Another earlier approach was boys summer camp. But common in the 1950s for many boys, to "toughen us up" and make sure we grew up to be sturdy "red-blooded" American men. Frighteningly like concepts of the German "Master Race" and the Hitler Youth.

    But the very primitive camp my parents chose may have backfired on them, and produced an opposite result. By my second summer camp at age 9 I found myself oddly attracted to our young, college-age camp counselors. Every 15-boy cabin had 1 counselor assigned 24/7, and he'd sleep in our cabin, dress with us, hike and skinny dip in the forest with us.

    I'd never seen naked adult males before, and it gave me a thrill. And each summer I'd form a crush on my counselor. Guys who also had to mentor us, and be our surrogate big brothers. And who never did anything inappropriate with us, I might add. So I guess by 9 I was feeling my orientation, but still didn't understand what it was.

    When I was 5 years old, I remember sitting on the floor watching TV when a romance scene came on. It was an old black and white film with a man kissing a woman passionately. I remember thinking it was really gross for that man to be kissing that woman and wondered why in the world he would do such a thing. That thought was immediately followed by "but it must be really nice for her." Then I somehow realized this was not going to go over well if I ever told anyone I felt this way.

    I started having sex at 6 years old with my 8 year old cousin. We had an ongoing sexual relationship until I was 19 years old. In fact, he was the only person I had sex with until 19.

    I am extremely thankful for having sex at such a young age. It allowed me to know who I was and what I wanted out of life way before other kids. At puberty, when other male boys were confused, depressed and feeling pressured to have sex with females, I just looked at them with absolute pity. I could very clearly see the horrible mistakes they were making but couldn't really say anything about it. As an adult, my therapist also told me I should be very grateful I got to experience intimacy at such an early age and I totally agree with him.

    I remember crushes on guys as early as maybe 3rd Grade, and serious attractions from about 5th or 6th Grade. Unfortunately, when I was that age, there was no concept of gayness, at least that I was aware of. But as I look back, I was 100% homosexual from pre-puberty on. These really young guys are lucky - it took me till my 20's to figure it out, and even then, in the prevailing climate, it was really frightening.

    I remember preschool playing with my best friend Jimmy and in a game of hide and seek, the two of us were hiding in a closet together. Rubbed my hand over his blond buzz-cut and knew I wanted kiss him and feel his body. Never did. Never told anyone. Started messing around with guys my age in about 6th grade.

    Though I didn't have a name for my sexuality, I was aware of my orientation before kindergarten, but I didn't do an 8mm home movie announcing that I wanted dick for Valentines day.

    Those first two vids were quite disturbing. The first only because the kid is tad obnoxious while the second couldn't have been much more inappropriate. As soon as he mentioned dick I clicked that off. Does the kid not have parents?

    The third video was cool. Seems like a good kid.

    I'm of mixed feelings with kids outing themselves like this, mostly by my fears of them putting themselves in danger.

    How old were you when you knew? It's easier for some, who believe that sexuality is binary - "gay", "straight", born that way - and maybe, for some, it is.

    Prepubescent children? Get a life.

    I don't think you can have an impression of your sexuality until you become a sexual being.

    These kids should all be too young to understand sexuality, and even still too young to understand their OWN sexuality.

    Man... do I sound like an old fart or what?
