I realised I was gay about 30 seconds after reading the definition of the word "transgender." I didn't even know if there were any other gay transmen, but I knew that's exactly what I was.(Yes, there are others. We're not quite legion, but there are quite a few more than one might expect.)

I was 4 or 5. I had a crush on the kid that played the son on 'The Rifleman'. I know, I'm... older. Of course, I didn't actually 'realize I was gay'. I didn't even know what it meant.

Johnny Crawford!!!!(Yes, I'm older, too) He was so cute.(I think after he left "Rifleman," he did some porn...or is that an urban legend???)

I was seven, and allowed to go at night to the skating rink. I worshipped the older girl's there (from afar) but there was one I was especially infatuated with. I even, 47 years later, remember her name. By age 11, I would stand across the street from my current heartthrobs house, hoping to catch a glimpse of her.
Halley Mills was my favorite!! Annette and Darlene on the Mickey Mouse Show also made my temperature rise. Later on, Princess Leia really did it for me.

I think that's an urban legend; however, I think he may have done a nude scene in a Hollywood movie.

Alas, I did not keep up with him for, by the age of six, my crush had moved on to the boy in the old 'Lassie' series,'Jeff's Collie'- Tommy Rettig. He was a little dorky looking - heavy lidded eyes, slightly buck-toothed - but I liked him, especially as he got older through the series.

The only reason I remember his name is because he later became one of the primary software developers for 'D-Base'.

As a kid, I can remember having such a crush on Jim West, in the "Wild, Wild West." He was so hot.(My father even noticed it...and called me names because of that!) Don't care for the actor in real life...but he was HOT.

Also liked David McCallum in "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

4 years old... nothing taught to me, no abuse , nothing negative in the environment.. realized I felt this "attraction" or wanting this "closeness' to men..Looking at them and saying "he's cute' he's hansom! wanting the "closeness" for strong arms around me.. not sexual,, that came later as I was growing up..
and as I look back,, never a desire for the female body even as I was realizing my attraction for men was become stronger.. This was NOT A CHOICE... this was THERE.. GOD MADE ME THIS way. and I'm not the least bit confused or discouraged. I NEVER & WOULD NOT ever considering changing my orientation,... the same way a heterosexual feels about theirs.. Anyone out there have this experience as well??
Four years old ? What would you know at four years of age - you have looked back and distorted your memory to suit your later choices.
Its never too late to be put straight

enjoying your time here in the GAY/LESBIAN FORUM, are you? I can only think of two reasons you would come here and post ignorance - 1) you are questioning your self, or 2) you are an asshole, in which case, your parents must be so proud.

Come back anytime...

You should do some research on child development as you are obviously very uneducated on any aspect of it.

Don't know if my parents are proud - i'm not after the attention.

I know they are not quietly ashamed of what I am, I know they are proud to be grandparents. Its a bit of pride to see your seed go on after you. Every man who has kids gets an inner joy to see their life reborn in someone else.

I do question myself - daily as god requires, but you are clearly not listening to your common sense
