Past ages also come with higher stigma, so the only ones likely to seek treatment are the ones who are an absolute mess, too old numbers are as useless as too new ones.
Also correlation doesn't equal causation.
>>How the fuck was it confusing? As soon as I could feel any sort of attraction to others it was always guys and never girls
Wasn't that way for me. I was always a bit on the girly side, grew up moderately religious, just enough to become a bit homophobic as a teenager, which created a problem, so I rejected my own attraction to not end up in hell, which I thought was a real place at the time, even though I was attracted to men, even older men. So I questioned my gender. I wasn't sure I was meant to be a man, since I had somewhat the demeanor and the sexual attraction of a woman, also being gay was a no-no cause imaginary skydaddy. But the Bible didn't really say anything about becoming
And I was also having zoophilic tendencies, which made things just 10 times more confusing.
I eventually untangled it all, being a girly male is ok. God's fictional, so being gay is also ok (this took me until I was about 17-18 to process, and about until 24 to completely get rid of lingering "what if I'm wrong" fear). I don't need to be a female, not missing out on much. And most of my zoophilic desires were pleased by being a furry, though I have embraced it to a degree, I'm fairly certain I'm not imposing myself or being a bother so there's no harm in it.
Thank fuck Tumblr wasn't a thing back then. By the time I joined tumblr I embraced my masculinity.
