A William Haefeli cartoon from the New Yorker of 11/11/02:

The speaker is treating his sexuality not as a permanent enduring state or property, but as something that can change over time — though he might be viewing sexuality as a noun that can denote either behavior (which can of course change over time) or a state of desire (which is more enduring, though someone might fail to appreciate its strength or significance for some time; see my posting on “Taste Y”).

The cartoon is a great favorite of lesbians and gay men who have children from a marriage to someone of the opposite sex.
