It is completely natural. You don’t have to feel shamed or uncomfortable about it, and don’t let anyone else make you uncomfortable about it. You have the right to feel how you feel. When I was younger I identified as straight, but as I got older I realized that I was attracted to women. And a couple years after that, I realized that women were all I could think about.. hence, I now identify as lesbian (as I have no attraction toward, or ever see myself being with a man in the future).
It’s healthy to explore your sexuality. It is in exploring yourself, needs, wants, and desires that you can really understand who you are. I have felt liberated in finally understanding my nature and my sexuality. Liberate yourself too! And stop worrying about what everyone else thinks. Be comfortable with yourself, and if others aren’t comfortable with your sexuality, they don’t have to be. You don’t need anyone else’ approval. Just Be You!

If you are straight you might take a moment to reflect on what it might be like to live in a society that only accepted homosexuality. How would you feel if people hated you strictly on the basis that you are wired to be attracted to the opposite sex? How would you feel if you couldn’t tell your parents, friends, or coworkers that you are attracted to the opposite sex? What if your parents wanted you to marry someone of the same sex, and to be straight was completely unacceptable in their eyes?
Its time that people wake up and use their brains.
WHY on earth would I want to subject myself to hate, discrimination, even violence?!

I want to talk about something that I feel I haven’t seen people talk about much lately, and that’s how it actually feels to be a homosexual living in a heterosexual society. I’ve experienced that many people will say that they are not homophobic, and will even tell themselves that they aren’t, but it will, even if subtly, show through their actions and words. Now, its important to state that I do not know why I am only attracted to the same sex. There is no explanation, it just is the way it is. It would be like me asking a straight person why they are straight. Its sad, because most of the time I feel like a dolphin lost in a sea of sharks. I feel like such an outsider sometimes because when you are gay you can never really talk about your life casually. You cant talk about the wonderful date you had the previous night with someone at school, a coworker, or even your parents!
Straight people may feel that they never hear the end of homosexuals ‘complaining’ about discrimination, but its because they don’t understand. You don’t know what its like to not be invited to that party, to not get that job, or to hear snide comments strictly on the basis that you are gay! And Yes, this is a reality for many gays. What people need to understand is that before someone is homosexual, they are a person just like everyone else. We still have human needs, we still need affection, love, and acceptance. We want to have a place in the world just like everyone else, and its not fair to deny people acceptance.. the acceptance that you receive from society every day.
Seriously, I’m tired of straight people assuming that EVERYONE is straight. The truth is, you have NO IDEA! So get a clue. When I think about some of the stupid shit that testosterone makes guys do, I thank God that I’m a lesbian!!!!
