Well, I sure loved me some grown women when I was a little girl. Although I enjoyed being in the clothes closet with the other little girls from down the street. :em0100:

I loved sitting in the lap of my mom's best friend with my head laid on her chest and watching her walk around with those daisy dukes on. Yes Lord..:biggrin:

Those are fond memories that I still cherish. :couple:

That wasn't taught. That wasn't nurtured. That was innate and I loved it.

Nothing has changed in over 3 decades. :blowkiss:
Are you sure you wasn't watching these women to want to be like them. I used to look at body parts and claim them as mine in my mind. After I saw poetic justice I claimed Janet Jackson's breast. I used to think Im going to have boobies like those or Im going to have a body like that. I even used too work out everyday with my big sister so I can have a body like hers. I looked at women that I wanted to be like. I mimicked their styles and their walk. I watched how much class they had and how they were treated. How men talked about them. If a woman walked down the street I thought was pretty I even looked at all the men to see if they was watching her or not. I listened to the things grown women talked about. I had pretend birthday parties with my cousin for our dolls and denied my cousin chocolate frosting telling her my baby comes first and i need it for her birthday party. Yep I wanted to be a grown woman so bad. I watched my grandma's handshakes, leg crossings, cooking skills and society language. That was my socialization of being the type of woman I am today. I became everything I thought was good from the women I know not on purpose just happened that way. Even my taste of men are like the men in my family, conscience intelligent protective.

No darling.

I was watching them because I was attracted to them and stimulated by them. I knew the difference between the woman I wanted to mimic and those that I found very attractive and stimulating.

There was a difference, and in some cases it was the same woman, but usually not.

I had no attraction to boys or men, none. Still don't. So, I'd say I was born that way. :)

BTW, All of this started at a young ripe age of 7 yrs old.

I had No sexually abuse. No rape. None of that stuff that some would love to say turns women into lesbians. I was not exposed to it. I just knew thats what I wanted to be when I grew up. (I actually said that when I was a little girl)..I said, "I want to be gay when I grow up". I knew what it was and I was clear that it what I was.

The truth is though, when I think about it..I could see how that could turn a woman completely off from a man. (Rape, Abuse) But, I know many women who have this experience and they are still heterosexual women to the heart or some of them are bisexual as well.
