Well there you go, you've cracked the case...if that were the same for all gay people. But it isn't. As I just stated in a previous post, there are plenty of straight kids from divorced families, and there are plenty of gay kids from intact families.Tony,
Your real father divorced your mom at 5? That explains why you geared toward another male because you longed for your real father and his love and you sought it out in another male. Does not matter if there was another male role model. A father's presence in a child's life is very important especially the natural father. Your step dad cannot fulfill the same role as your natural father.
In fact, my 3 long term relationships (the first two being about 1 year each, plus my marriage) were each with a man who had a run of the mill, intact family. My first lover's parents were married until they died in their old age, and there was nothing unusual about their relationship to each other or to him. Oh and he has two straight brothers and one gay sister.
My second lover's parents are still married. Very nice people. No issues of attachment or bonding or other nonsense you'd like to make up. He has two straight brothers.
And my husband's parents were married well into his adulthood until his mother died of cancer relatively young. He was already in college at the time. He had a great relationship with her, and still to this day has a great relationship with his Dad (as do I.) He has 4 straight brothers.
Your little theories are being blown to bits left and right - by the truth.
