is it normal for a stright female to be turned on when she see's a naked women or female parts? or does it mean she's lesbian.
p.s i come from a school full of lesbians and alot of girls hit on me but i never find myself with one although i have thought about it.

Nope, doesn't mean you're a lesbian. You're the only one who can assign an identity to yourself--whether it's lesbian, straight, bisexual, whatever.
We have some articles on this subject:

Think about as if you are the one to decide, its not a question you really have to ask because nohing in particular specifically means your a lesbian, just what you feel.
If you find you love someone more than you love yourself, I hope that person feels the same way.

Cuban: Set your mind at ease. It's a question a lot of us have had.
A lot of straight men and women are able to appreciate the beauty of their own sex. Many straight women in particular, recognize a special sensual gracefulness God gave women, and can even be turned on by looking at our OWN bodies.
In my Jr. high years, it was easier for me to relate to other girls on an emotional level. I think because our sexual responses are connected to our interpersonal emotions, it colored my early sexual urges. This was my case early on, but changed over time, as I matured and came to understand and appreciate the odd way most guys are wired.
You could also be bisexual. Don't conclude that you are gay-- unless you never develop any attraction whatsoever to boys. And don't presume that you have to be locked in to any one orientation for your whole life. People grow and change. I've seen this happen in myself and in friends.

I recently saw a program where a woman whose work is based on female sexual orientation, conducted an experiment.
She took 100 straight women and 100 gay women and showed each volunteer a film of two women together and then a man and a women together. Using some kind of device she was able to measure the womens sexual responses.
She concluded that there was not a huge amount of difference to the womens reactions of either film whether they were gay or straight. In fact most women in the experiment appeared to be more turned on by the two women rather than the straight couple.
She concluded that female sexuality is determined by many factors not just becoming turned on by a naked woman.
Hope this has helped.

I'll keep this short and sweet...
Just go with the flow. Whoever you're turned on by, just accept it. If you wouldn't actually want to be with those people ina a relationship way, fine, and if so, fine. And foremost, don't worry about trying to place yourself into one of the sexuality categories. It'll save a lot of frustration

Just a note: one can be homosexual or identify as such and still have some attraction to the opposite sex. Very few people are KInsey 0's or 6's, and thus have NO sexual attraction to either the same sex or the opposite sex whatsoever.
