This took a billion rewrites and I nearly didn’t post it but thank you to my friend in real life who told me to speak my mind even if I’m scared people will judge me for it.

So, as I believe most of you know, I am gay and I like guys. Now, guess what? For whatever reason tons of people think that it’s perfectly alright to insult people just for liking the same gender. As a victim of homophobia from peers, teachers and family I am sick of this and so I hope that by reading an account of what I have experienced someone on here will stand up for a minority and stop letting this ignorance run in our world.

"Lol that’s so gay"
No it isn’t. Take your stereotypes and get out. I love Disney princesses and I still would if I was straight.

"You can’t be gay and Muslim!!"
Yes I can. I worship a God who believes in love and equality, not one who supports the killing of minorities.

"F-g"
If you hear someone use the f-g word, kindly tell them to stop. This is blatant discrimination. I don’t insult you for being straight. The fact that we let people use this word is why it’s getting worse.

I could go on and on about how my peers are unintentionally insulting me simply based on my sexual orientation but the people I felt the most victimised by were my very own parents.

When I came out to my mother I was told that this cannot possibly happen (but it did?), I’ll have to pretend to like girls from now on, and that I was worth less. When my father found out I was verbally and physically abused to the brink of suicide until I sought help. All because of cultural values instilled from an early age that this is unnatural, plus multiple stereotypes ("We’re not buying you any dresses"). But even my parents have slightly softened their stance since because I have told them about how we can change together.

There’s my story. I refuse to be silenced any longer. Stop making a world where people are discriminated for reasons they cannot change. If you have children, teach them to accept homosexuality or being transgender because THAT is how we, as humans, can be united once again. This was accepted thousands of years ago—why did we stop?

Yas you go thapple :3
I am seriously sorry about what happened with your parents, and your friends. Sadly it’s imbedded I. People’s minds that gays are supposedly bad.
I’m very proud of you for having the confidence to say all this

Thought you were a?

But nevertheless I am happy that you aren't hiding from it and accepted it of yourself, because that is the only thing that matters. Don't let anyone tell you to be or pretend to be what you are not. Wink

Well eventually I realised that I was just saying I was asexual because I didn’t want to accept that I liked guys myself; I came to terms with it maybe February to April-ish.

And thank you to Robin and Cherry too :3

In a world that ridicules and, in some cases, executes gay people, it is really brave of you to come out and say that to your parents. I'm proud.

Wow okay that was rude. I just thought something like this didn't have a place as a topic and would fit better as a PM to other users or a shoutbox conversation. I thought if the sole purpose of the topic was simply for the OP, there wasn't much of a reason to make it a full topic.

It's off-topic why does this matter

It just seems like something that doesn't need a whole topic on itself, if we're just focusing on one post in the OP that doesn't offer any reasons to reply back to it. Sorry you can't see my point of view  Hmm
