The choice for them then seems to become either living without this deep psychological need being met, or living with those other things. Which would you prefer? Anyone who has grown up with severe lack in their primary relationships, or who has known an absence of need in some way, knows that those other things pale in comparison to getting that need fulfilled. It is a driving force that stems from a very real emotion and need. It's just that even when that need seems to be met by having a relationship with a person of the same gender (which is a reenactment of the primary relationship, a do-over, if you will), it will inevitably result in dissatisfaction, just as pursuing any relationship out of lack results in dissatisfaction. Because the original need can only be met by the parent, or healed by God with consciousness and therapeutic discourse.
    so basically everyone was pretty much gay up until recently when dads started being active caregivers?

    What do you mean by this? If you could elaborate and clarify that would be great.

    Upon contemplating a hypothetical romantic partner for myself, it dawned on me that if I say, "I am heterosexual and therefore my perfect mate is a male," that is the same as saying, "I am a homosexual and my perfect mate is a female". But what if my perfect mate is actually something other than what I think I identify with? This happens in other things regarding our lives, we think we *know* something but God shows us otherwise.

    I think perhaps the Godliest way to be, if we want to live in God's will for us, is to just say we are sexual, if we must say anything at all. Perhaps we should just say we are loving, because we should not really be sexing for sex's sake, but for love, making love the primary impetus for sensual and sexual relations anyway.

    If we say we are X-sexual, we are trying to control who we love. And we are saying that who we love is based on who we want to have sex with. We are allowing our sexual inclinations (more superficial) to dictate love. Since love is THE primary substance of everything (because God is love and God is everything), this is wrong. So, for these reasons identifying who we are based on some misguided sexual notions, is not Godly.

    So, no, I'm not bisexual. I'm not heterosexual. I'm not homosexual. I'm just loving. And when God wants me to have a sexualoving relationship, he'll give me someone to love that I may be sexual with.

    I don't think I could be long-term friends with anyone who was essentially Freudian in their way of thinking.

    I wonder if this burning sensation will stop if I put ice on it? But then, do I really want to put ice on it?

    Sounds like a personal problem.
