    Trust me, it's pretty common. People don't just realise "Oh, I'm gay!", it sounds corny but sexuality is a voyage - you don't know until you reach the end.
    You try the girlfriend situation because that's what you're fed as a kid, and yet it doesn't quite feel right, something just isn't there. That special spark doesn't exist.
    The biggest thing is accepting yourself for who you are and realising "This is me, it's not going to change so there's no point debating it". Those people who claim to "cure" homosexuality are *******s - it's not a choice and it can't be "cured" - it's who you are! If other people don't like it, then tough - that's their loss.




    My mum said "poofs" too, my gran says "princesses" :rofl:. Weird thing is my mum and dad don't like it. Mum is borderline accepting, dad is a no no. Yet my grand and grandad, who you'd assume to be uber conservative, couldn't care less - they're happy for me! As are the rest of my family (and they're religious too, which is surprising).

    If anyone uses fag around me now I tell them how I don't like it and please stop. Usually they're fine and stop right away and apologise because they don't realise (a lot of people don't even realise it's a derogatory term for gay people). Those that keep saying it and push me to the edge, I just walk away and ignore. Not worth knowing.

    I've been known to hit some people (I promise I'm not violent, although it often sounds it ) that pushed me right over the edge (e.g. "Hey fag boy, get outside, don't want you in these changing rooms - might try and **** me" in PE.... he got decked. They get the picture then..... I'm not proud of it, but by the same token I don't regret it - he had it coming in my eyes.

    My mum and dad knew Well, mum did - dad refused to accept so didn't get it ("Tell me when you have a girlfriend, don't be scared"..."Dad, I'm gay. You know this. We discussed it at length you fool&quot.....

    Had one girl interested in me.... she was so lovely and nice, I feel bad for breaking her heart but what can I do :sad: Not seen her in years.
    I remember watching a Harry Potter premiere thing on TV a while after telling my mum and she asked if I'd suddenly become interested because Daniel Radcliffe had got older and I just looked at her like this she obviously has not yet seen Emma Watson. I'm lucky though, I think she did that out of habit, not because she chose not to believe me.

    I don't blame you for hitting them, if they carry on like that what do they expect?

    9 minutes :woo:

    I dont know if anyone's seen this, I posted it earlier, but I found it sort of strange:

    I dont know if people have mentioned this, but I was just thinking about Mean Girls (like we all do), and i was thinking about the plastics.
    Karen=Brittany (Love Amanda Seyfreid btw) because of the blonde bimboness and just general hilariousness.
    Gretchen=Santana cause of the *****iness and all the rumours and secrets
    Regina=Quinn. Just queen ***** and all.
    This is more season 1 though, when their storylines weren't really developed much.
    The more I think about it, the more I think Glee was based on Mean Girls. People manage to connect them all the time. This just confirms it.

    I'm not good at writing about stuff, I'm better at talking about them, so I won't be able to give you a block of text
    This guys actually my best guy friend, and an amazing guy, and it would actually kill me if he rejected me.

    One of my friends has the exact same movie and song taste as me, and its really getting weird. Every film or song I say, she loves it, and vice versa

    So I think some of my friends suspect, but they're just assuming i'm straight because of my ex-girlfriend and me confusing friendship feelings with attraction
    Toy Story <3
    I'm the opposite - I can write for days yet can hardly speak a word

    He might be your best friend, but you have to think that if he rejects you over something so trivial (and just think it is actually trivial to him because it doesn't affect him in any way at all) then he's not a true friend. He's friends with the "straight" you that he knows - if he can't accept the real you then he's not a worth friend. For everyone person who rejects the "straight" you, there's many more awesome people willing to accept the real you. Trust me It might take time, but it'll happen.

    They might suspect you're straight, but if they have any doubts then they probably won't be surprised

    Just don't be offended if they go quiet/withdrawn for a bit etc - if they genuinely didn't know then it can be quite a shock - they don't mean harm at all, they just need time Then they'll be back to being awesome :awesome:

    I'm not ignoring you so don't worry But I've never seen mean girls so I can't exactly comment

    :rofl: My dad still does that with Katy Perry Because I once said she's a good looking person He does it out of spite and wish that I'd change though

    And exactly, they had it coming They should be lucky I didn't break any bones After all, they broke my spirits and life for several years (even though I'm stronger for it now)

    2 minutes! :woo: Let's go!

    I have a Christian friend but I'm lucky that he was pretty awesome. He said "Look, I don't see homosexuality as natural and I do see it as against god, but if makes you happy, and as a friend that's what I want. I won't agree with you on it, but I will respect it and make sure I don't hurt you over it" (paraphrased obviously). I couldn't ask for more - we generally don't talk about it but I know he respects it, just like I respect his religion even though I don't agree with it. Like I said, I couldn't ask for more than that

    You're lucky that most of your close friends are girls because they might already think you are gay Not saying they will, but don't be too surprised if they say "Yeah, we know"
    I remember my ex's friends saying they thought he was about to tell them he was straight :rofl: he was so obviously gay to them, yet he didn't see it at all.

    Toy Story 2? I cried like a baby at Toy Story 3 too! When I was 18! Andy giving away all his toys :cry: So sad, I genuinely cried :sad:
    I cry all the time though especially at Glee


    Awwwwh thanks! :hugs: You sound awesome too :awesome: :yes:

    My school was homophobic to the extreme, but I honestly think it was due to ignorance and not hate.

    The "That's so gay"/"You're gay" etc insults were flung around like no ones business, even my friends did it... when I came out to them though and explained look that's actually pretty hurtful to say that, they apologized like I've never seen. *most* people don't mean to hurt someone with comments like that, they just don't realise it hurts.
    Our teachers didn't care for gay rights. I remember I brought it up once (fueling the gay rumors I guess!) and I was just fobbed off as "It's not important"..... Shame really. The thing that annoyed me most was Sex Ed. Plenty of advice for straight kids, nothing for gay kids. Now I know there would be laughing/teasing etc etc, but I know for a fact a fair few people I was at school with "Experimented" and they deserve to be taught safe sex. It's not much to ask surely. A real shame.
    We had no "out" gay teachers, but I suspect one or two were gay....
    As I said before I'd love to be a teacher, but if someone asked if I was gay I'd never deny it. If the kids teased me then fine, get out my class. I see teaching not only as teaching the subject but teaching life skills, which if anything is more important.
    I know at my primary school one of the female teachers is gay and recently got married (she's genuinely a lovely person so awesome) and I never knew. Fair enough because it's primary school and they don't say, but here's the killer - news of her wedding got out and parents complained to the head that they don't want their kids taught by her. Disgusting, it's not even a religious school. She told the parents fine, move your kids if you're that bothered but I'm not getting worked up about it. I really, really admire her for how she acted

    I know one other guy from school who is gay now, but that's it. Then again, I don't keep in touch with many He did come out in school and got beat up real bad for it. It's one of the reasons I wish I'd come out too, because I could actually beat up the bullies - I was stronger than them

    My parents hate "The gay" apparently it's a phase, who converted me?, you like girls really, it's a rebellion, it won't last etc etc.... Dad said "Gay adoption is wrong and unnatural, and I won't have it in my house".... simple answer "Fine, you won't see your grand-kids then" Apparently a single mother adopting is fine, as is a single father, but two guys isn't.....

    And that's awesome about your friend and how you reacted! :awesome: Honestly, I can assure you she was sooooooo please when you said that! Wish more people were like you :yes:

    I've also been known to bust a Glee tune at the odd party (I got in to the music waaaaaaay before the episodes ). I wanna hold your hand is my song - I actually sing it alright



    Plug it in! Plug it in! Can't miss Glee!


    Sorry for the walls of text tonight everyone, a combination of you guys actually being awesome and accepting and me feeling happy for a change make me write lots
    Awww, thank you! Toy Story 3... OMG don't! All my friends were going off to uni and I was like :cry: I should be going too! OMG Woody! :cry:
    My parents go on about 'the gay lifestyle' when I'm like 'Why would anyone choose to be gay when they have to deal with BS from people like you?' I hope this doesn't sound patronising but I really admire everyone who comes out, it must take such courage. Your ex-teacher sounds amazing.
    I hate how people act like being gay is catching or something to be ashamed of or when people are all faux confused like 'But how do you KNOW?' Even I know it's the same way you know you're straight. I can't reason with my family. They're all like 'You choose to be gay.' and I just say 'Why would anyone choose to be gay when they have to deal with BS from people like you?'. It REALLY gets on my nerves.

    They talk about 'the gay lifestyle' and I feel like shouting at them and saying 'You do know most of my friends are gay/bi, I loved Pride, I thought the gay bar my friend took me to was epic and I'm not actually gay, right?' But there's no reasoning with them, they think it's a Western thing and that it's a socialised concept and you see gay people on TV and somehow want to be gay. The mind boggles. My dad's like yours but at least he's equal in his discrimination. He's also against interracial relationships and a million other things I can't remember. I seriously can't believe he's a police officer. He said to me so proudly that one of the officers he trained with 'was a gay' and he's 'an alright guy.' Baby steps, I suppose. At least he's not a violent homophobe? He's just ignorant, they all are, really! I've had people call me camp before... I have no idea how that works.
