My story is so typical in these forums that it's almost redundant to mention it, but the super-short version is this: I don't identify as gay but I am attracted to white-haired men; I am attracted to women, but my relationships with them always end in tears.

I am not gay; I am not straight; I am not bi; nor am I trans. I am a survivor. That's what I am. The abuse eliminated my ability to have any identity that is currently discussed in the mainstream world, even in the LGBT community.

Therefore, I suggest that we as survivors advocate for those who advocate for the LGBT community to consider adding an "S" to their un-pronouncable acronym.

I do not identify as LGBT, but I could find a home under an LGBTS umbrella. We are survivors; that's what we are.

Thoughts?

Good thoughts Cant Remember,

I have similar issues. I have been told I am a Sexual Anorexic. Like the food anorexic is afraid of food, the sexual anorexic is afraid of the sex in all its complexities.

Lots of shit happens with CSA!

I wish the best for your situation and that you may find answers and hope. I would be glad to hear from you, or bcl092, in a PM (private message) if you want to talk about anything.

take care you two

peace

paul
