A recent article on the Scientific American blog discusses what developmental psychologists call "prehomosexual ", that is children who exhibit a set of early behavioral indicators that homosexuals seem to have in common.

So fess up, did you play with the toys that "matched" your gender or did your parents worry you might be gay or a lesbian when you were very young?

I am not sure in my case. I enjoyed going to the neighbor boy's house and playing with his Matchbox cars, trucks, and legos. I coveted his father's train set. I rode my bike like crazy. My favorite toy was a set of wooden blocks. I apparently (according to my mother) refused to take ballet lessons because "those were for girls." I did better in toughskin jeans than any other clothing. (but I had a favorite Winnie the Pooh dress in Kindergarten and First Grade)

On the other hand, I loved brushing my older sister's long hair. I had dolls aplenty and played with them. (admittedly by making them "fly" by tying a string around them and spinning them around. I spent a lot of time getting into my older sister's make up, playing house with my sister, and loved to cook.
