when i knew #40.

“I would lie if I said I didn’t somewhat know when I was 12-years-old, when I was surfing the Internet and, one miraculous day, dozens of gay porn pop-ups hit me all at once. I supposed straight boys ought to find it grotesque, and yet I didn’t immediately turn away. But I wouldn’t say I knew then and there. Don’t all young boys have gay phases?
“The high school locker rooms pretty much cemented it for me. I knew it when I saw it. There was something alluring about the male form that the female form didn’t do for me. No matter how hard I tried, it would always be the male form.”
