This thread isn't about how you feel about gay people and whether or not you accept them! It's about how gays/bis have come to terms with themselves and how they think of themselves now.

Okay, so uhmm... just curious to compare my life story to other people's. When did you acknowledge the possibility that you might be gay/bi, and when did you accept it?

As for me personally, I've never actually had a sexual preference, as odd as that may sound. I was taught to look down on gays, but I eventually came around to opening my mind and realized that no matter who you are, you're still human. Earlier in life when I was close-minded I'd occasionally have a "gay thought", but I always ignored them and told myself they were just random thought bubbles that meant nothing. At one point I even prayed that these thought bubbles would never pop up again, and swore at myself for having them. About a year ago was when I became kinda liberal and accepting other people's beliefs and lifestyles, although I still kept my own sexuality somewhat of a secret. Up until a few months ago, I was convinced I was straight as an arrow, although there were many issues that I questioned. One of which was that I didn't find any man attractive, but neither did I feel that way to woman. Over the Summer, I became great friends with another guy that made me think about his lifestyle. I never questioned him, but I always question myself. I asked him what he thought of me and what kind of aura do I give off, and he simply said, "Don't worry, Kipi. I know you're straight". I kinda forgot about that for a while, and continued to live out my life. A few weeks later, I started questioning why I wasn't attracted to anyone, and asked for some advice from a group of furries. They told me that "the first ten years of your life is spent not caring, the next ten is spent experimenting and figuring it out, and the rest is spent knowing." I wasn't really satisfied with that response, but I kept living as I did, treating everyone I met exactly the same regardless of gender. At this point I acknowledged the possibility that I might be gay. A few days later, a guy named Shara started showering me with complements and I knew he liked me, but It didn't bother me at all; I didn't give a crap about his appearance or gender: I figured that I was attracted more to personality than anything else... That's when I accepted that I was bi. If someone told me that I was going to get into a homosexual relationship with someone a few weeks earlier, I would've thought that person was a moron and try to ignore them. I'm completely satisfied with myself. I haven't changed at all; the only thing that is different is my new relationship with my love, Shara.

ok i dont know if my story is going to count because im still kind of confused about my orientation but im thinking i might be bi. Um, let me see. it first started when i became friends with this one girl in tenth grade, who was lesbian. she dressed like a guy and had a girlfriend and everything and at first i thought she was a boy and i thought she was HOTT then i found out she was a girl so i thought she was super pretty. but then we became really good friends and i noticed i suddenly started too have like..thee desire too kiss her sometimes. yeah, its nothing big or whatever. but yeah, ever since then ive always sometimes been attracted too some girls. but i LOVE boys at thee same time too. ah, it's kind of difficult too explain. sorry if this didnt make sense. i dont really know how too explain it since im still kind of like..confused about it and all that.

Too much to read. Going from the title, i'll say I accept Gays and Bis, as long as they try not to rape me. The possiblility of me being gay is 1/10000, and the possibility of me being bi is 1/100.

Interesting story. It's nice and all that you came out. Some people are still confused at your age. I know a person who didn't come out until they were 27 years old.

The thread is discussing people discovering themselves, not how you feel about other people. And all you had to read was this line:

"Okay, so uhmm... just curious to compare my life story to other people's. When did you acknowledge the possibility that you might be gay/bi, and when did you accept it?"


The rest was just my story.

What a nice story. I am not judgmental at all to any gays or lesbians or whatsoever. As long that a person has a nice personality, and they are not supercilious, I will be friends with them.

Don't be worried. Bisexuality started long long time ago. It is said/rumored that the ancient Greeks were bisexuals.

It's good that you're not confused anymore, happy for you ^^. I have some gay and bi friends, they're really open about their sexuality, and it doesn't bother me at all.

I liked your story =]]
Me personally, I'm a Lesbian. I had to pretend to crush on guys though in middle school and early high school because I was also raised to look down on gays and that it was a sin. It freaked me out when I first head this in church because I felt like I was a freak. I'm still "in the closet" but I've come to somewhat accept myself now, but I do feel guilty that i'll never be able to truly fulfill what my parents wishes are when it comes to marriage and possibly grandchildren. My mom would've made a great grandmother. It's great that you've come to accept yourself ^.^
