Sexual identity

OH-KAY! So this isn’t something that I’ve really covered before. I’ve concentrated a lot on gender seeing as my blog is about being transgender. I’m not planning to get into anything explicit, but if this post sounds like it’s going to be TMI, then feel free to skip it.

You know I’m a girl…..except for when I’m being a boy. So does that mean my sexual orientation is bisexual? No it isn’t. In fact I’m only attracted to girls. It doesn’t matter if I’m boy me or girl me, I’m only attracted to girls.

I guess that means that when I’m a boy I’m heterosexual, but when I’m a girl I’m a lesbian. Confused? Welcome to my world! It only gets better. Anyway, so that’s my sexual orientation.

But is that also my sexual identity? You would think so, right?….. I have a strong girl side, you’ve read all about her in my blog. And she’s fully one half of my gender, but I think she’s almost all of my sexual side.

I identify as a girl when it comes to sex. That’s kind of incongruous given that I have boy bits. But there it is. I guess it’s like an extension of being Loretta. Except identifying as a girl, when it comes to sex, came a long time before Loretta got her name.

So given that I identify as a girl when it comes to sex, and that I’m exclusively attracted to girls, I think that my sexual identity is actually lesbian.
