:-( idk why but some people tell “lmao you're no gay you've only liked x gender" it makes me angry to “prove" i'm gay :( idgi
Mod ember here.
I’m gay AF and I’ve only dated men so far. But that’s because it’s circumstantial. It’s hard to find someone I can really love and have fun with when I live in butt-fuck north carolina where HB2 was made, like???? You probably know your area and you know what’s available to you - So thAT PERSON CAN GO FUCK A CACTUS OK U ARE GAY IF YOU SAY YOU GAY
Mom, I need some advice.... I come from a Christian family and they think that being gay is a sin directly from 'Satan' and that gay people go to hell, etc. And I've discovered for the second time (long story) that I'm a lesbian... I'm really close with my parents and I don't want to ruin that... and I don't know if I'm struggling with internalized homophobia or what (thanks to my lack of ability to understand my emotions) but how do I come to terms with the fact that I'm a lesbian? Thank you.
Well, um, it wasn’t until after I got a girlfriend til I became fully comfortable with being a lesbian. (And now I never shut up about it, it’s all I talk about.) My dad always said lesbians were disgusting and when I came out he made me pray and I already told yall my stories of being catholic so.
So um these might not be the most helpful
- watch shows with healthy wlw to help remind yourself that you aren’t “weird” or “gross”
- sapphic youtubers can help, too
- following sapphic or lesbian blogs so you can just casually see it and get used to it
- look in the mirror and tell yourself you’re a lesbian and that it’s okay
- WATCH BILL BYE SAVES THE WORLD EPISODE 9 BC IT TALKS GOOD ABOUT SEXUALITY AND GENDER AND BILL NYE IS THE SCIENCE DAD
- try to remind yourself that even if your family don’t, people will accept you. Partners and friends. (My grandma told me she was glad I didn’t try and unlesbian myself because not being myself is unhealthy.)
Okaaaaaay that’s hard! But I like the headcanon that she wishes she could cook better and sometimes thinks she finally did it but her friends and boyfriend are just pretending to like it to make her feel better.
The cat she had growing up (the one she mentions to Hyde) was named some shit like ‘Stefan’ or something and she struggles to tell Hyde.
She didn’t like Ken barbies because he looked weird so her Barbies were single ladies or she would dress up some as boys and cut their hair. She learned her barbies were lesbians after commenting this out loud as Betsy was playing in the basement and everyone was laughing.
Every halloween she gets hers and Hyde’s costume, hoping this will be the year Hyde will dress up with her.
And she uses the Led Zeppelin shirt all the time to sleep and every time Hyde sees her wearing it, they have sex and she has to put it for laundry.
She used to like Laurie and thought she was awesome, something that only added to the pain Kelso and Laurie caused to her.
In her junior year, she liked Hyde, not Kelso. Kelso thought she was onto him and was the one to talk to her, but the one she was always looking at and was basically following around was Hyde.
She used to admire her mom a lot and wanting to marry a man like her dad, it was very painful to realize how awful they are.
She always wanted to have siblings and that’s why she wants to have at least two kids but is super scared of pain and becomes a mom older than she thought she will.
In my middle and high schools, we did have LGBT+ support groups. I was open about my sexuality (bi, now identify as pan) In 9th grade, a straight female, another bi female, and myself decided to do a little social experiment and walk down the halls hand in hand in hand. The students didn't mind, but our parents were called saying we were engaging in lesbian activities. My mom laughed, others didn't take it so lightly. One of the girls was forbidden to talk to me anymore.
I forgot to mention, this was in 1997
Wow that’s fucked up! But at least your mom was supportive about it. Unfortunately this stuff still happens :( Someone told me about a similar situation that happened at their school but they were actually holding hands with their partner. So weird how people can hate love so much, isn’t it?
i wanna give a shout out to all lgbt people who thought they were another identity before realizing they were something else. lesbians realizing they’re trans men, bi/pan people realizing they’re a lesbian/gay, binary trans people realizing they’re genderfluid, etc. even if you don’t know if your current identity is the final stop, even if you think it’s a “phase”, or you don’t know what label fits you best, you’re on a journey to self discovery, every step matters, it shapes you into the person you are or aspire to be, and you’re not fake or a bad person for figuring things out.
look call me a lesbian or w/e but i think girls who are unapologetically unladylike are super hot, like, girls who swear and have messy hair and wear sweatpants all the time and sit with their legs spread and eat as much as they want and don’t give a fuck about what people think. A+
i think the most fascinating thing about about learning you’re a lesbian is understanding in little bursts of memory that you’ve been a lesbian your whole life. if you’re a lesbian, you were a lesbian when you were six months old. you were just a lesbian baby. that’s just how it is. you were a 7-year-old lesbian and a 12-year-old lesbian and a sophomore in high school lesbian. you have been a lesbian in every facet and niche of memory you have. wow
Sixth grader Molly Neuner broke her school’s dress code on purpose to take a stand against sexism
On a Friday not long ago, sixth grader Molly Neuner went to a community meeting.
At that community meeting at King Middle School in Portland, Maine, half of her grade, both boys and girls, gathered to talk about the dress code.
That’s when Molly realized something: There were wildly different rules for the girls and the boys, with far more attention paid to what the girls were wearing than the boys.
“It made me feel uncomfortable, because I don’t want boys looking at me in weird ways and it was awkward. It made me feel sad, because I knew friends in that room who were lesbian or gay who were left out, and I saw another girl look down and looked upset because they said that.“
The following Monday, Molly experienced firsthand what it felt like to get called out at school because of her clothing, with a teacher telling her and a friend to stand up in front of the class and measure her shirt strap.
If she wore that shirt again, she was told, she’d get detention. When she came home and told her mother, Christina Neuner, this, that’s when the wheels started turning.
“I thought, ‘Oh hell no, this is not happening,’” Neuner said in an interview. “The next day, we started looking online at ‘girls and dress codes’ and saw it was a problem at other schools, and we found the #IAmNotADistraction campaign.”
So last Wednesday, Molly wore a tank top that she loved with lace at the top, but also one she knew would be breaking the dress code.
She paired it with the words #IAmNotADistraction written on her arm. Read more (4/17/17)
i was told i should definatley post this story so here we go!:
So I was selling Girl Scout cookies at a cookie booth this weekend, and this little old lady walks up to the booth to buy cookies! She looks to me like she’s at least 70 she’s really old. She’s super friendly talking to us and telling us about what it was like when she was a Girl Scout. So finally she picks out 5 boxes to buy and she says “you know I don’t really like these cookies but my, uh, my spouse Sharon did.” And she continued to tell us about her wife Sharon who died 2 years ago from cancer. Sharon was a Girl Scout leader and she was 6ft tall and she just loved thin mints. And then Margaret (she said at this point her name was Margaret) pointed down to her shirt (which was HUGE on her) and said it belonged to Sharon and even tho it’s really big on her she still wears it all the time because it feel like Sharon is still there hugging her. And she told us that they had been together for 28 years and really loved each other. Then Margarets old lady friends came over so she had to go and she said good bye and after she left we were talking about it and I was so happy to have met her because it just made me so happy to meet this elderly lesbian Girl Scout and all of the sudden the sort of sad mood is interrupted because the other girl in my troop looks over to me and says “wow Kaitlyn, she was the first gay Girl Scout I’ve ever met besides you!” and all I responded with was “it was an experience"
