Hey Hank! There are some real words of wisedom here on this thread. It is important that you love yourself and who you are first, including your sexuality. Worrying about labels is irrelevant, and really, it is but a cultural construct. What is important is what you like and what makes you happy. It will take time coming to terms with your attractions to men, but please understand that our society casts non-heteronormativity as shameful, wrong, "other", and so forth. Don't let these external views cloud your own self-image and acceptance...

Hang in there Bud! Remember too, so many of us here too have accepted our attractions to men, and we all have encountered struggle within it in some capacity or another. You are not alone.

SSA seems to be common among CSA survivors, both gay and straight. Try not to worry too much about the labels. In time you'll figure it all out and be who you were meant to be.
