Born Gay? In the first grade, Zoey’s mom chopped her daughter’s hair short, and the next day at lunch the other kids in her class ripped her apart with nasty comments. There were two tables to sit at during lunch hour, a girls’ and a boys’ table. To be really honest with herself, Zoey wasn 't certain where to sit. The other kids named her a boy; therefore, was she a boy? Obviously Zoey was a girl, but the trauma from the first grade haunted her forever. Flash forward 10 years: Zoey is 16 years old and is afflicted by sexual interest in girls.
