10. I had a crazy crush on a boy when I was five.

“I’ve thought about it, and I guess the first signs of it when I had a crazy crush on a boy when I was five. I mean, in a five-year-old way, I was really in love with him. We were even girlfriend and boyfriend for eleven days, until he kissed Jenny during block clean-up—I cried the whole time (and conveniently missed clean-up). I still remember the little round stain my tears made on the reading corner pillow, and I still think of him fondly.

I was always pretty boy-crazy, I always had some sort of mad, passionate crush. And I was always kind of a daddy’s girl in a very stereotypical heterosexual development sort of way, so I can probably remember having heterosexual feelings even before I really was able to index my memories in time.

Oddly, as hardcore hardwired heterosexual as I am, later in life I did find that I have some very homoromantic inclinations and have had a several very intimate and intense friendships with lesbians or bi women that fizzled disappointingly. I don’t know what to do with this part of myself or what it really means.”

16. Boys have given me butterflies in my tummy since I was in preschool.

“Boys have given me butterflies in my tummy since I was in preschool. College experimentation with women proved to be physically exciting, but I’ve never been emotionally fulfilled by a woman in the same way that I’ve been able to connect and fall in love with men.”

19. David Duchovny was a puberty bombshell for many of us females back in the 90’s.

“David Duchovny was a puberty bombshell for many of us females back in the 90’s. Once I started rationalizing how maybe it could work out once I turned 18 even though it was a big age difference (he’s like 20 years older than me?) there remained little doubt.”

“I remember being four years old and staring at older guys I thought were cute (cashiers, grocery baggers, parents’ friends’ kids, etc.) who fit the punky type I’m still attracted to. I think I’ve always known I like boys.”

23. I realized—even though a lot of my friends were gorgeous, vagina just isn’t for me.

“I knew I always liked boys, but never really knew there was another option until I was probably 9 or 10. Even then, I didn’t really think about it. Then in middle school, my best friend confessed to me she was bi. I started thinking about it, and I realized—even though a lot of my friends were gorgeous, vagina just isn’t for me.”

28. A boy named Charles bitch-slapped 12-year-old me with his face and hair and body.

“When I really realized it was in 6th grade. If I didn’t have a clue before (and I kind of did because boys made me uncomfortable and I thought one was cute in 4th grade), a boy named Charles bitch-slapped 12-year-old me with his face and hair and body into my own personal hell-terosexuality. I couldn’t stop thinking about him and how amazing he was. It was terribly uncomfortable. Nowadays, when I like a guy, there is far less fanfare. Mainly just shyness and general awkwardness in their presence. Puberty, man. It really sticks it to ya.”

30. Watched the DiCaprio version of Romeo and Juliet in class.

“Watched the DiCaprio version of Romeo and Juliet in class….The moment Leo first walked on screen and turned to look straight at the camera. Time stopped. Sound went fuzzy. I forgot how to breathe. The other girls in the class were squealing up a storm but I forgot how to function. I’m not exaggerating. That man is a danger to society.”
