Healthinnovations, perhaps you didn’t have any clues as to your sexual orientation at an early age, but it is in fact quite normal and common to figure out that you’re attracted to the opposite (or same) sex as a young child. I myself realized I was interested in boys when I was about 4 and got all flustered and confused by my cute college-aged swim instructor’s bright red swim trunks. And yes, I too had a giant crush on David Bowie in Labyrinth! And Tom Cruise in Legend. And Wesley Crusher on Star Trek TNG. It’s not inappropriate to acknowledge that children can have a sexuality. I think maybe you’re feeling uncomfortable because you are linking sexuality with sexual activity? But they are two separate things!
