    Red face Can someone go from bisexual to lesbian? I am confused

    Sooo I have been recently as I mature get more and more attracted to girls and less and less attracted to guys. I only really like transguys anymore. I tend to think girls are hotter then guys. Guys always tend to be ugly. Girls turn me on sooo much more then guys. Guys can hardly turn me on. I never get turned on. Could I be asexual? I was raped at 13 and still have PTSD from it/flashbacks. Sooo could this be part of it? Maybe fear of being raped again? I don't know... any opinions? thanks.

    Hello survivor,

    I'm so glad that you're here talking with us today. I am truly so sorry for what you have been through. Have you ever opened up and talked with a professional about the flashbacks and the PTSD? If so, do you currently talk with them? How about someone like a family member or other trusted adult? It can be so helpful just having someone that you can talk with, and you deserve that support.

    Some things that can help with coping are writing, taking walks, yoga, meditation, and talking with someone (which I mentioned above as well). Also, be kind and patient with yourself. Do you have some coping strategies that you often turn to? We'd love to hear them if you'd like to share.

    One thing that you can do is call the helpline Your Life Your Voice at 1-800-448-3000. That number is free to call, confidential, and secure. Additionally, it's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so any time that you'd like to talk with someone, they'll be there! You can find out more about the helpline and other services they offer by visiting their site via THIS LINK.

    Another helpline that I'd like to share with you is RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), which is also free, confidential, and available 24/7 by calling 1-800-656-HOPE(4673).

    I can see that you're also starting to put some thought into your sexuality, and wondering of you possibly identify as asexual. I'm including a link to an information page over at The Trevor Project that offers some information that may be helpful. Just remember that your feelings are completely yours, and there is no rush to find a label. Take your time, and love yourself for the incredible, beautiful person that you are!
