Well, it's been too damn long
« on: October 13, 2013, 03:08:03 AM »
So Pat Robertson sent me off the damn deep end once again and now I'm back here.  Things that have happened since my last appearance 'round these parts (not including that one post a few months back):

-I turned 14.  And 15.
-I came out as gay.
-I hit puberty.

In that order.

I'm making another thread here because I barely remember my friends and I'm sure there are a few new kitten-toasters among us.

My new catchphrase in real life has been "hugs and love."  So hugs and love to all of you.
I'm here every now and again.

Welcome back. I'm bisexual myself, but I haven't outed myself except to a few close friends and my mom.

I was only counting real-life stuff. In my second intro thread[1], I already revealed my sexuality, as well as a thread asking the users here for advice on telling my mom.
 1. For those of you who remember its title: as it turns out, I had already written another.

Just use Google to search for something like "Apparently I've never written one of these..."
If you can't find it, try using the forum's search feature, although it's slow as hell and will temporarily keep everyone from accessing the forum.

That's fine by me. I was just telling you how to find it, if you wanted to.

Welcome back, and kudos for the courage to come out about your sexuality. I hope you haven't taken flack from those close to you because of that.

I've been doing pretty well.  The family's okay with it, school's been alright for the most part.  Joined the school GSA and I'm having a good time.  Thanks for the Darwin--it's like a rechristening of sorts.

Welcome back. I'm bisexual myself, but I haven't outed myself except to a few close friends and my mom.

Good to see you, OAA.  Are you still in school?  Depending on where you live, it might be a good idea to attend a GSA meeting, or equivalent.

Same here.

College, yes.

No clue what that is.

Glad to know that, after some of the sad, scary reactions to GLBT teens outing themselves I've heard about. And you're more than welcome to the Darwin; courage should be recognized.

Bingo.  OAA may be able to talk to people in similar situations and get advice and support.  You know I support you, OAA.

Bingo.

Still don't know what that is. Mind giving me a short explanation?

Doubtful. Bisexuals are not thought of in good ways, even by other LGBTQ members. That said, I don't need help. If I feel coming out to everyone is the right choice, I will come out. However, I do appreciate your concern.

You know I support you, OAA.

Indeed I do. Thanks.

A GSA is basically a student-run support group for gender/sexual minorities and their allies.  It's a safe space, and most high schools and colleges in the US have them.  If yours doesn't, maybe you would want to start one.  It may help you and people like you.

Doubtful. Bisexuals are not thought of in good ways, even by other LGBTQ members. That said, I don't need help. If I feel coming out to everyone is the right choice, I will come out. However, I do appreciate your concern.

Absolutely right--bisexual erasure is a big problem.  However, you could go once or twice and see if there are cool people there.  Nothing to lose, right?

Never mind all the sexuality stuff[1] ... the only issue here is ... Arsenal?! I mean ... ARSENAL?!!! REALLY?!!!

 ;)

Just kidding, Benny. I have a slight preference for West Ham, on account of being a Maiden fan, but other than that, all English teams are cool by me.

So ... Welcome!

I haven't felt or seen the need for such a group. People there appear to be tolerant.

Absolutely right--bisexual erasure is a big problem.

Indeed. It makes me sad that people who are discriminated against can discriminate against an even smaller minority.

Except being outed prematurely. As I said, I don't need help.

Hm.  Very true.  Well, you do what's best for you, and I'll keep sending hugs and love.

Arsenal?! I mean ... ARSENAL?!!! REALLY?!!!

Gah, I haven't watched soccer in forever.  But yes, I grew up watching Arsenal so I'm kind of stuck with them :P
