Why is sexual Identity permanent?
If a middle school age fkid says “I’m an astrophysicist. I have known it since I was 3. I was born this way and will always be this way,” we would smile indulgently, perhaps be supportive, maybe try to talk sense into him. We would not expect commitment. Test if this kid says he is gay, that we would believe, and expect him to follow through with the action all his life. How odd, when you think about it
