So I was talking to a christian fundamentalist and they said everyone who is gay was molested by a member of the same sex when they were a child. Surprisingly, many homosexuals I've asked confirm this... input?
Please don't, for your own safety.
Unless you're straight, then get out.

Never been molested in my life yet I'm a complete homo.
We don't know what triggers homosexuality or if it's an inborn thing. The best explanation we have is the "early childhood" thing. Who knows if a child is even able to see how traumatizing molestation is? We were born hundreds of years too early.
actually, when a child becomes in adolescent, he or she is wired to go a certain way based on the first sex related things the adolescent has seen as a child. typically children will naturally be curious on what the opposite sex body parts look like, so they relate that to sex before they even know how sex works. if a child has seen anyone naked, he or she will relate that to there orientation when puberty starts. for example, I like men, the reason I like men was do to a man being the first person I saw naked. and by the way, nudity is natural. two people can be naked right next to each other and never decide to touch even if there orientation goes that way. It's not that gay men are gay because of a molestation, there gay because that may have been the only sex related thing they've seen as a child, making it hard to be attracted to anything else. this is why its important that children should know what different people's bodies look like, so that when they're ready for actual sex when hitting puberty, they can chose what sex or gender they want to be attracted to for the rest of their life, if they choose a specific gender at all.
I don't think so. I was too autistic I think.
I had one old guy try once and he asked me to tell him my dick size when I was pretty young, was like 13 I think, and I was too retarded to figure out what he was trying to do. Eventually he got so frustrated that I wasn't responding to his sexual cues that he gave up and just let me go.
this seems wrong but it confirms my own sexuality so i can't say anything.
i think you did hit on one important thing; not all gay people were molested, but a big chunk of kids who were molested turn out to be gay.
Though my father was a bit rough at times, I knew I was gay long before that, I mean I stared at male underwear magazines in secret for HOURS for fuck's sake, long before I even fapped
1. Correlation does not imply causation.
2. what >>5710210 said.
3. Not that it matters, because the plural of anecdotes is not data, but no OP. I was not molested into wanting the D.
This does not matter one bit to fundies though. Evangelicals and fundies will find any other ad hoc explanation to justify a convenient belief that people choose to be gay.
I just had three sisters and associated vaginas with being disgusting because of family.
Plus not having a brother or a close father and craving some sort of male relationship.
I honestly think if I had a closer relationship with my father or a male friend I wouldn't have ended up gay.
