*steps off soapbox*
I never hid it. I was one of those people that was "born gay"...falling into stereotypes such as playing with dinosaurs instead of Barbies, trying on daddy's clothes instead of mommy's, watching Alien instead of chick flicks (me having a female body).
What bothered me is that people don't view being gay/bi/pan as normal, so they feel they have to "come out". Straight people don't have to hide being straight, so why should gay people have to hide being gay?
The answer is obvious: Society.
However, that was always the philosophy I lived by....so my parents knew since ever without me having to tell them. When I got my first girlfriend, it was just like "Oh, hey, I'm going out with my girlfriend now."
"Alright."....well, that is coming from my mom...while my dad does hate me for me...but that's another story.
Apparently my family suspected, but never said anything to me. Im out to most of my family, but not my brother or step-dad yet. Kinda annoys me they never confronted me though. If they had, though by force I may have been out years earlier, and that would mean transitioning would well...have happened by now. I'd atleast have a larger wardrobe of clothes I actually enjoy wearing. (Its limited atm due to lack of money, figures Im out when we become poor)
The more people are used to seeing things the less they pay attention to them. Of course it would take time, just have to step up and take action. Now only if most of us could start doing this, even if only in small steps.
I'm thinking it might be easier to not "come out" at all, just start being bisexual without telling anyone.. sort of, know what I mean?
Like.. get a boyfriend and change the relationship status..
Then just tell people it should've been obvious if they ask.
Tjenaretjenare, signature, eh?
I'm thinking about telling my parents that I'm bi. My dad wouldn't care that much, he's really nice, but my mother... She wouldn't get angry, but she'd try to "embrace" the gay part by buying me short shorts, pink clothes, etc.
She terrifies me.
One of my half brothers was gay. She did stuff like this for him, but he was fully gay and not just bi tho.
Kind of scarry when have a parrent like this.
My dad dosent care either wayas long as im happy.
Most relitives on the other hand....
Isn't there a sticky in the den that completely rails on "coming out" because you can't come out as having a hobby? I like that thread more.
Nothing against her really, but I'm glad she's leaving.
Now if only she would get hired at microsoft...
wow i must be like the luckiest kid in the world if i told my parents that i was bi or gay they wouldnt care they both already know im furry and they were like "oh well thats cool its your life you can do what you want with it" they are soooo supportive of me
