This is such a patronizing attitude, and a common one with respect to LGBTQ people.

Why do all cis/straight people seem to remember feeling lost and confused in their youth, particularly when they’re talking to queer people?

I don’t remember feeling lost and confused in my youth. I remember feeling rejected and alienated by people who wanted to tell me I was lost and confused.

Grrrrrr ….
