Who are you talking about here? Us gays?

I was born gay. I guess raised straight since I live in a heterosexist world, but have been gay all along.

I'm referencing my concept that while people are born gay, straight men really aren't born that way. They're bi and get turned seemingly exclusively straight by culture.

I wouldn't say every straight identifying man was born bi and made straight. I guess some are.

We live in a heteronormative world where most of us are raised as though we're straight. I was one of them, but have been gay all the time.
