What the fuck. This guy is actually quite progressive when it comes to sexuality. Maybe he was trying TOO hard to say, "It's not such a big deal, Anon."
But it didn't have that effect. It just trivialized the whole thing. Maybe I should just continue to repress this and hide it from everyone? Better luck next time?
>Maybe he was trying TOO hard to say, "It's not such a big deal, Anon."
I did this when my friend came out as gay in high school. It hurt his feelings pretty bad and I didn't really realize til later. I never apologized :(
That sucks that you got a bad reaction from someone you trusted, but try not to take it too hard. People in liberal areas have gotten so accepting of LGBT people that coming out as bi probably will just elicit a reaction of "huh, ok" unless you're actually dating a member of the same sex.
I am not in a relationship with a member of the same sex, but I am actively seeking one out. My preference would be for it not to be a complete surprise to everyone (to see me with a boyfriend).
That is all I am trying to accomplish.
Also... even if this weren't true, there is something to be said for living openly and honestly. If it hurts you to keep it in, then don't keep it in.
Ok so, why do I even want to come out as bisexual? Wouldn't it be more convenient for me to hide it?
No. I don't think so. I have been repressing this for 3 decades now. I want to date a guy. Keeping this all a secret just... hurts. I assume some of you understand what I am talking about.
>wanting people to acknowledge said problems
Go eat a bag of dicks sprinkled with vagina juices.
Actually, no, do us all a favor and come out, it will be easier to avoid you.
Nobody will care, once you're in a same sex relationship and people know, you'll be labeled gay and every person of the oposite sex you date will make people think she is your beard.
