Although research on childhood gender nonconformity (CGN) has shown to be the only consistently correlated measure with adult self-identification of sexual orientation for men and women, little research has focused on other dimensions of sexual orientation are also correlated with CGN. In an online survey of adults (N = 2,372), information on participants’ self-identified sexual orientations, sexual attractions, sexual behaviors, and sexual fantasies correlated with recalled CGN. The only significant predictor that an adult would recall CGN behaviors was sexual attraction. Implications of the findings as well as limitations to the current study are discussed.
