It's amazing what you can avoid if you simply don't think about it.
I'm amazed that it took me 32 years to realize I like guys a lot.
Even though sex is all around us in the media, I was still able to
avoid thinking about it.  It simply wasn't interesting.  Maybe because
everything is 99.9999% heterosexual.  If homosexual wasn't such a
taboo and if I had seen some normal homosexual stuff, things might
have been different.

I can't help but think that many in my family knew my orientation long
before I knew.  I kind of wish that someone would have brought it to
my attention.  I probably would have flatly denied it at the time; but
it may have gotten me thinking years ago.

What I am trying to say is that many people simply don't know.  And
then I suppose they are not really in the closet.  They are trying to
live their daily lives without sex and that special love.  I don't
think it's a waste of a life.  But I think it is sad.  Let's hope
that, like me, they realize what they are missing before it's too
