1. False
2. False
3. True, over 90% of child molestation is committed by heterosexual men against young girls

4. False
- sexual experiences as a child are not necessarily indicative of one's sexual orientation as an adult. Many, and perhaps most, lesbian, gay, and bisexual people have early heterosexual experiences, but are still lesbian, gay, or bisexual; many heterosexuals have had sexual contact, including orgasm, with members of their own sex, but are still heterosexual

5. True
- It is impossible to convert heterosexuals to being homosexual. Nor is it possible to convert homosexuals to being heterosexual. Homosexuality is not a type of mental illness and cannot be "cured" by appropriate psychotherapy. Most psychiatric and psychological attempts to "cure" lesbians and gay men have failed to change the sexual attraction of the patient, and instead, have created emotional trauma. Many lesbians and gay men have known heterosexuals who tried to convert them to being heterosexual, without success

6. False
- people's sexual behaviours and practices differ widely. If you think about heterosexuals you know, they will fall across a spectrum of sexual activity and types of relationships. This is also true for gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. We have more information about the sexuality of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people and little information about the diversity and depth of their relationships. Many people accuse lesbian, gay, and bisexual people of "flaunting" their sexuality when they hold hands or kiss one another in public. And yet these are the activities that heterosexual couples do all the time

7. False

8. False

9. False

10. Some lesbian, gay, and bisexual people know that they are attracted to members of their own sex at an early age, sometimes as young as 7 or 8 years old. Others learn much later in life, in their 60's and 70's. Some research indicates that sexual orientation is determined between birth and age 3. No one knows what causes sexual orientation.
