Hello everybody. This is kind of horribly difficult for me. Not sure why. I’ve already told a good number of people who will read this. I have recently been berated for revealing my atheism to someone, so what the hell? Prune the rest of the tree while I’m at it.
If you decide to hate me based on learning more about me, what does that say about you?
If you’re gonna hate me for being myself, kindly fuck off.
Now, my parents are some of the best people in the world. I have, however, been terrified to tell them. It’s not really a big deal in my family, but I feel like I can’t really be myself until everyone knows. So, here goes:
I am bisexual. I like both guys and gals.
Some things to know:
- My attraction to both genders works just like straight or gay people’s attractions to each other. I am not attracted to everyone, nor am I some slut who wants to bang the world. I am attracted to different people for different reasons.
- I am not coming out as bi because I am scared to say I’m gay. I’m not gay. My family is the most accepting group of people ever. If I was gay, I’d say. If I was gay it would be easier to explain. A lot of people don’t understand bisexuality.
- I have known since I was 15 that I wasn’t straight. But it was confusing for a long time. I wasn’t sure until I turned 20 that I was bi. I definitely like girls and I definitely like guys.
- You don’t have to approve of me, but that won’t change who I am.
- Me being with a girl doesn’t make me straight.
- Me being with a guy doesn’t make me gay.
- Bisexuality doesn’t just vanish when you choose to be with someone.
- How do I know? Uh, idk, how’d you know you were straight? That’s what I thought.
I am still me. Still Lucas. The same person I was before I you read this. If you think this changes who I am, you’re wrong. If it changes you’re perception of me, that’s silly. I am quite literally no different than I was before, except I’m being more open about myself.
