    I'm not gay. I'm 13 and really can't say I'm

    anything but I think I am straight. That's how it feels anyway. I like to think I'm normal. My parents are gay. My mom and my anne (an-nay) are married lesbians and I am their daughter. I don't know any other parents and I don't want any other parents because I love mine and we...

    Its really hard when you've lived with a parent

    who is so against people who are gay and you are completely for it. You don't want to cause problems so you don't disagree with them you're just silent. I mean my sister is gay my uncle is gay I have gay friends and honestly even if I didn't have these people in my life it still...

    I support gays and lesbians.

    And this is my thought: imagine if we, straight people, were always judged because we are showing love to our bf/gf, how would we feel? Put yourself on their shoes, be empathic. I bet you would hate it to the point of hating yourself. So respect their decision and respect them.

    I am s closet lesbian myself

    and when people who are close to me say something offensive about homosexuality, it upsets me. they don't realise the damage they are cause around them.

    I don't see why people do .

    -. It's like Person 1-- "oh no!! Two guys just kissed eachother!!" Person 2-- "WHAT?! But that looks so weird!!" Person 1-- "I know right??!!!! We should have them thrown in jail for expressing their feelings toward eachother!!" Person 2-- "I'm with you 100%!!" I mean really...

    Honestly, I'm surprised

    that the human race still holds onto values from a book written so many years ago... Who cares if someone is gay... They're happy... Shouldn't we want that?

    If my son turns out to be gay,

    all I will do is hug him and say its okay. I would never say, "I'm not proud of you because you're gay," its like saying, "I'm not proud of you because you have brown hair or blue eyes," THEY ARE BORN WITH IT

    Why is it that there's always one member of

    your family that has known your sexuality for yonks? When I came out to my nan, the first other person except my best friend, and she was full on "I've suspected for years, it's not that hard to figure our" **** I love my nan, she was so nonchalant about it

    I am not bi or gay, I am straight.

    but i do support anyone who isn't, I have a nephew who came out, at 7 (yes I know it is a young age) but since he learned what gay means, he actually knew what he was feeling was normal. For those homophobic people who have children, when you curse about LGBT people, you might...

    I get jealous when my boyfriend talks to other

    guys even if they're just friends. it doesn't bother me when it's face to face just through text, as conversations escalate and get flirty. should I start talking to other guys to make me feel better?

    I was speaking to a friend of mine

    and my sexuality came up, unfortunately this is a regular occurrence. She said "why can't I have a gay best friend? I know you're bi but I want a real GBF. You're just not gay enough." I felt so offended by the random stereotyping of me "not being gay enough" considering I'm...

    I do not see a problem with same gender

    relationships. But I do have a problem if a man tries to make out with me. I am straight, but 50% asexual. It doesn't mean I don't want sex, I just don't want as much as the other guys.

    Most human beings have lost all humanity.

    To the point were we become just like Hitler except we are targeting people by their sexuallity. All of us are worth the same no matter our religion,race,or sexuallity. By the way I'm not gay but I think that the people who make it public are awesome.

    And bisexuals. And poly / pansexuals.

    And transgender people (though trans people really have nothing to do with the rest of the LGB spectrum as they're based in gender identity / expression and not sexual orientation).

    Why do you have to hate on other people just

    living their lives? Homosexual people aren't some alien species completely different from heterosexuals. We're all just people, doing our best to live in this crazy world. Not need to make anyone else's life any harder for no reason.

    What's annoying is when people try to use the

    term 'gay' as an insult. It's very ignorant to even associate someone's sexual orientation as something negative. We don't substitute the word 'stupid' with 'straight', so why is it okay to say 'that's gay'?
