The Mystery of Puberty, Part 2


The other girls' astonishing and inexplicable transformation at puberty remained a mystery to me until I was grown up and finally understood my true lesbian nature. Then everything fell into place and I finally understood.

When all those girls hit puberty, it jump started their heterosexual orientation. I reached puberty too but no heterosexuality kicked in for me. Boys remained the complete doofuses they always had been, as far as I was concerned. Why on earth would anyone go all gaga over them?

It probably speaks to my good self-esteem or perhaps my big ego that never once did I think that perhaps there might be something wrong with me. Oh no, it was the other girls. They were all weirdos. I knew I was perfectly fine. And I was, LOL! A perfectly fine young lesbian, although one who was completely clueless about that fact.

I was kind of a late bloomer...though there was never a doubt about my heterosexuality.

laurie said...

that is so sweet, the innocence of youth, you were lucky to be self confident, was it your parents who brought up such a self assured child or was it just your natural essence I wonder.Puberty is such a hard time for some, I never had doubts of my sexuality but was a shy girl, no boy chasing for me, married at 17 almost eighteen to boy 6 years my senior, just a child, but still together together almost forty years later, I guess it stuck!
Somehow I had a feeling you were a confident and probably sassy teen, ha ha, love these, in depth peek at the real you posts , thanks for sharing,

Surviving puberty is tough!

Francie said...

I agree with Laurie, Debra. That is a sweet story. I suspect it wasn't always smooth sailing for you but hopefully it is getting better for girls today.

Lois said...

Now I see it... While all the boy-crazy girls were distracted by the thought of sex, and flunking courses and immersed in drama, the quiet studious girls getting the good marks were probably lesbians. Lol.

Lois said...

Lauie! 17??? I thought I was young getting married at 21.

DEZMOND said...

methinks we go gaga after those who aren't doofuses :))

Snap said...

Loved your story. I hated high school ... those kids were all crazy. Now university was a completely different story. YEEHAW!!! :D :D :D

Lois said...

Can't credit the husband with the book, but my ex-boss. She owns an antique store I used to work at, and I stopped by last week and was going on [and on] about the gypsy caravan! She must have had the book somewhere...

laughingwolf said...

often, ignorance is bliss... and, like joe campbell sez, follow it! :)

Wendy S. said...

Good for you to be a rockin' goddess during a time that most teenagers can't stand anything or anyone!

Jane said...

I wish I could say I wasn't one of those girls going gaga over the doofuses... I would have accomplished so much more during that period of my life - including better grades. I love that you never for a moment considered there was something wrong with you - right on!

Joyful Things said...

My friends son let us all know he was gay at the age of 16 and he has the same attitude as you, and he is right, there is nothing wrong with him, and nothing wrong with you.

Deborah said...

Oh that is an awkward stage of life, the whole boy crazy thing. I like how confident you were in yourself. Not common at that age! **kisses** Deb

Crack You Whip said...

I wasn't interested in boys when I was younger. Way too immature. Now that I am older, I see men as immature but the good ones are already taken...sigh.

turquoisemoon said...

hmmm...I'm heterosexual, but thought and still think guys are doofuses..hahaha!!! Some things just don't change! There is nothing wrong with you...or me, except you like cats!!! :D

Riot Kitty said...

I'm so glad you knew you were OK, and they were weird!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Sounds to me like you were a very confident girl. It's such an awkward stage with all the changes teens go through, not to mention all the peer pressure. I had my fair share of doofuses in high school. If only I knew then what I know now...

Kay G. said...

Bee yourself! (I love your bee photo, Debra means "bee" does it not?)
I found you from Martha's blog!
Good to know that someone was confident in high school! Thanks for sharing this.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

I like the way you think.

Elsie said...

Debra, first, I'm sorry some idiot placed hateful comments on here. You deserve better than that. I've had my share on my blog to - so I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

Anyway, to my point! =)

I'm glad you always knew there was nothing "wrong" with you. That is was perfectly fine to feel the way you felt. I wish that other children going through these changes knew the same thing. That their parents, their loved ones, let them know it was "okay" to be so called "different".

As I say, I may be straight, but I'm not narrow minded.

Oh, and love your picture with your rainbow blanket. So cute =)

Annie said...

I'm so glad you had the confidence to be you and not change yourself to fit someone else's ideal.

Like Elsie I'm straight but not narrow minded, and I hope that the percentage of accepting people is growing every day.

Tricky Nag said...

Proving once again that confidence and a decent level of self-esteem goes a long way.

Sarita Rucker said...

lol! Good for you, being sure that you were fine and the others were nuts. :)

I used to wonder how people could take a while to figure out their orientation. But it actually took me a while to figure out that I'm bisexual. Actually I only really properly recognized the fact after I started dating my boyfriend.

How old were you when you figured out that you're lesbian?
