Some Last Thoughts

Some people may regularly have sex with others of the same sex, without seeing themselves as lesbian or gay (whether due to cultural, religious or personal reasons). Gender presentation has got nothing to do with being lesbian or gay. Most lesbian women consider themselves as women and similarly, most gay men consider themselves to be men. Being transsexual has got nothing to do with being lesbian or gay. Transsexual people can be heterosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual. Being a transvestite has nothing to do with sexual orientation. Transvestites can be heterosexual, gay or bisexual. Intersex is a biological variant and NOT a sexual orientation, nor does it refer to sexual behavior. Having a penis does not necessarily make a man a man. Having breasts does not make a woman a good mother. Being heterosexual does not make an individual “normal”. Our language is just too limited to fully describe human beings’ sexuality and sexual expression.
