What bugs me the most is how people ‘doubt’ when you’re really bisexual or not…just cause a lot of people ‘claim’ to be bi for a bit. I don’t know if you’ve dealt with that, but it’s like being bisexual is COOL or something and everyone suddenly rushes to be one. Nowadays, it’s being ‘pansexual’. It’s like, when something ‘new’ and ‘different’ pops up everyone wants to be ‘new’ and ‘different’ too. Sometimes I blame those crazy trend followers for creating this bi/pan-phobia.
I remember that from my 7th grade… I think it creates a lot of negative attitude as well. Thanks for sharing your opinion!
ive been gay since 6th grade & came out in high school lol (: girls are awesome :)
Thanks for sharing with us! :D Cute picture too ^^
Hi, my names Christy. I’m 17 years old, and I recently came out. I’m a lesbian. I was petrified that when I came out my friends would stop speaking to me. Due to moral and religious reasons. Thankfully they understood completely and now more people are coming out. Not wanting to sound selfish but I feel as though I have inspired people to come out. I told my parents, they said it was fine but they never really want to talk about it. Always changing the subject whenever I try. Oh well, if they can’t accept me then fine. & Now I’m sitting back and waiting for the perfect girl to come. <3 Thank you. If you want to speak to me and be friends, the photo is linked to my face book. :)
I think that’s awesome! Congratulations on coming out and getting such positive feedback :] Thanks for sharing <3
She has done SO much to help the LGBTQ community in Alabama!! She deserves to win this :]
The Associated Press:
A U.S. judge in Boston has ruled that a federal gay marriage ban is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define marriage.
U.S. District Judge Joseph Tauro on Thursday ruled in favor of gay couples’ rights in two separate challenges to the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
The state had argued the law denied benefits such as Medicaid to gay married couples in Massachusetts, where same-sex unions have been legal since 2004.
Tauro agreed, and said the act forces Massachusetts to discriminate against its own citizens.
Day 16 - A picture from your first LGBT relationship or of your first LGBT crush
This is me sitting on my friend Morgan’s lap from the night that made me realize I was bisexual.
The other days
Apparently not all the posts shared via /submit are anonymous. There is a way to find out the sender of some of them.
I believe I have a way to make the rest of them fully anonymous as well as the ones in my messages box, and I will do so, but to compensate, I’ve also enabled anonymous /ask.
If you have a post that you’re concerned contains your name and you’d like me to delete it, you can ask anonymously now.
I’m incredibly sorry if this causes anyone trouble.
Although I do like what you wrote to this girl about her question about having sex with someone and not dating them, I would also like to put a different perception in there.
I have had a couple of those “friends w/ benefits” relationships with my friends, and they worked out just fine. I believe that if you’re an adult [and although I don’t think 17 is, it’s pretty damn close to 18 and you’re old enough to make your own decisions] then if you want to have sex with no strings attached, you should be able to. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having sex, whether it’s with someone you love or not, as long as you’re not doing it to compensate for some kind of emotional issue. Sex is a beautiful thing, with or without strings.
But if you are going to involve yourself in a FWB relationship, you need to understand that it is a balance of some sorts. Firstly, you need to be able to understand the difference between sex and love and you need to be able to fully separate the two. Second, you probably shouldn’t do things that couples or friends would do outside of what you two do in the bedroom, spending time together will eventually lead you two [or just one of you] to develop feelings for each other and that could lead to disaster if one or both of you aren’t ready to be dating anyone.
All in all, yes, it is fully possible to have sex with someone and not date them. But a relationship like that can be a delicate one, so treat it that way. Have fun. Live, love, fuck, whatever, just as long as you’re treating yourself and the people you’re involved with well. :-)
While I agree that it’s a delicate situation and that sex is a beautiful thing, I think it’s much more beautiful when the people involved are committed :] Thanks for sharing your opinions as well!
