My only comment would be in a question as well. What do you mean by same-sex attraction? You can look at someone of the same gender and admire the way they look (maybe a body-builder, or fitness enthusiast, or whatever you find "attractive" about that person-their character or values). The risk (or should I say caution) is if the attraction is physical in a lustful sense or has any sexual tone to it at all. Michael already answered the question perfectly so I won't "parrot" what he has already said. I just wanted to add that an attraction to the same gender can be ok if it is a character or physical but not sexual or lustful attraction. Although that is a very fine line and avoiding such temptation honors God the most.
