To live up a discussion, do you let it known that your gay or do you just keep it to yourself? (by let it know meaning, post it in your sig or wear a shirt that says "Im gay!" etc)
The only thing that I wear that's in any way related to my sexuality are three bracelets that together make up the colors of the asexuality flag. Other than that, I don't flaunt my sexuality, but I don't hide it either. Like -ty-, if the discussion that I'm having with my friends turns to people we're attracted to, I don't mention anyone, or I might mention that one person that I am attracted to. Other than that, I don't run the streets singing about my asexuality, panromantic side, or about how I'm non-binary. Though I have dropped hints that I do prefer more gender-neutral ways to refer to me in real life.

Well, and I can't really hide that I shop in the men's department even though I'm female-sexed, so...

What does your school do concerning LGBTQ issues?
I believe my high school might have had a GSA when I first started going there, but it ended and was never revived. And my college really had nothing. If they did, I wasn't aware of it.

Would you change anything about your sexuality/gender?

Yep. I'd be straight in a second. I can't find an actual reason to continue being gay if there was a choice in my sexuality.
What if you were really in love with a guy when the choice was made available to you?

If I became straight I wouldn't be in love with them afterwards though.

They don't do anything that doesn't happen to non-LGBT students. The straight kids actually suffer more because they tend to get into (really petty and really unnecessary) fights with each other (probably just to kick each others' cans) instead of with the LGBT students they don't even know.

Yes, this is what I'm saying lol - if you were in love with someone, would you be willing to sacrifice them for heterosexuality?

Actually, you know what? I like this question lol - I'm going to open it up to the whole community:

If the choice was made available to you to become straight, would being in love with someone of the same gender impact on your decision?

Personally, I couldn't. I have no interest in changing my sexuality regardless so I'm writing this response as though I do. If I were madly in love with another man and suddenly the 'miracle drug' (lol) became available to cancel out the gene or whatever it is that made me gay, I would not take it. I'd just hope he'd love me enough to make the same decision.

I'm well aware of what you're saying. I'm saying that if I was in love with them, after changing I wouldn't have feelings anymore so it would be null. Even then, if I was "in love" with them I would expect them to have a great understanding of what I'm going through and who I am. I would have a discussion with them on why I would do my decision the way I'm doing it. I'd obviously still remain friends with them, but I wouldn't be romantically or sexually attracted to them. In the end I would expect a great friend out of it all.

I want equal rights and to be looked as like equal from the social standpoint. Period.

Quote originally posted by Shining Raichu:
In straight relationships, it's generally accepted that the man will propose. In a homosexual relationship, there are either two men or no men at all. Would you rather be the one to propose, or would you prefer to be proposed to?
I would love to have the opportunity to do either. I would love to be proposed to, surprise me with that sort of question. On the other hand, I would also love to be able to plan out the perfect proposal. So I guess my answer is: doesn't matter. I'd love to be on either side. It'll be a competition with my future partner. :3

Quote originally posted by -ty-:
Does anyone else think that it is more difficult for LGBT people to date? And that there are more strains in relationships than in heterosexual relationships generally?
It's harder to find someone. =o= Even if you find another gay person, it's like "Erm, ewww." and srsly don't wanna date them. Or a man*****. The two gay guys I actually know fall into those categories. Sigh.

Here's a question...

Does anyone do something to "advertise" their sexuality?

I've taken to wearing a rainbow wristband. Nothing big, but it does say something. It made my heart-a-flutter when the guy I'm seriously crushing on complimented me on it. Heh...

Yes. I hate homosexual dating; it's more likely I would find love if I were straight. I would be less insecure, and feel less judged.

However, Andrew(I am horrible at remembering names, I hope I'm not mistaken) expanded upon the question; if I were to be in love and know that a guy loves me and doesn't want anyone else besides me, then I would not change my sexuality. Because the big problem "gay dating" would not be a huge issue if I had a good guy, the insecurity does not trump love.

BTW...has anyone watched the A-list on LOGO, what do you think? ( I don't know if we consider this to be a LGBT question, but the show is pretty much like the gay version of the real world, and that is rare to find on tv.)

I am not too big on reality tv, but I love this addicting show - it's pretty damn "juicy" haha

I watched the whole first season today, and I have to say that I am moving to New York City after I obtain my degree! Anyone that watches the show is going to think that i am crazy for this next part, but I have a huge crush on Austin.

Oooh, interesting. -answers-

Uuumm, yes, yes it would. Hope I'm understanding the question. I'd imagine if I were already in love with someone of the same gender, then the opportunity to become *~*magically straight*~* would be unappealing. Chances are I'd be happy with that person, and content enough in the relationship that I wouldn't care much at all to change my perspective and ruin whatever I had with them. Plus, being straight would be easier, but certainly not as interesting as swinging both ways. -shot-

Give up being Bi for that? No way!

To be honest...I don't care about gender. If I love someone, that's how I feel. The only thing that can stop me is that person. If they don't feel the same, that's fine...I'll pick myself up and move on. :3

It would impact my decision, but I still wouldn't go through with it. I wouldn't give up the happiness and time I spent with that person just to be straight. I mean, if I'm with someone who means that much to me that I take their feelings into consideration while making a decision that affects me, then I'll say that that person means enough to me to not give them up for any reason.

Just turned eighteen today, but I don't exactly feel any freer compared to seventeen. I'm still weird to any classmates that notice my behaviors; I don't smoke; and I don't feel like voting between the candidates we have right now.

Does anyone do something to "advertise" their sexuality?

Since last year or so, I've been somewhat more open with my interests regarding sexual attraction, though there isn't much of a change since it's difficult to be interested in most of my classmates (the most of which are potheads, party-lovers, and the gamers are generally boring because they only care about first-person shooters). But I digress. Basically, I've been more open about it, but it's gone overly unnoticed.

I don't really try, but the closest thing I have done was when some guy at school called me a *insert homosexual innuendo here* then I just sat their in the corner smiling, he noticed and continued to pick on me. These kinds of people amuse me.

No, I suppose not. But, if I like someone like a crush; I tend to smile a lot, give them subtle hints. If that counts at all whatsoever. >.>"

But it's not like I'm allowing myself to get crushes anymore.

Um.... being open about it if someone asks is about as far as I can note.

I have this attraction to this one guy recently who's friends with my best friend Laura- he acts so awkward near me (other people in general too I suppose, but shut up I'm fantisizing) and it makes me wonder if he finds me attractive. He kind acts like it, taking notice to things I had no idea he'd know about and making a bit of conversation even when Laura is not around and smiling.

I wouldn't mind grabbing a hamburger or somethin' somethin' you know.

AREN'T I FREAKING ADORABLE <3

Hm.... in addition to the recent question:

How do you (regardless if you're Lesbian, Bi, Gay, Trans, Straight, Pan, Questioning, WHATEVS) handle a crush?

I'm normally too shy to say anything if I'm crushing irl, which is something I guess I'll have to work on if I ever wanna find me a man but online I just tell everybody when I'm crushing on them - even the straight guys

Same response as Shining Raichu, except I don't tell them I have a crush. I just flirt a lot. It's tough in real life. Sometimes you don't know if they're the same orientation as you & if they're not there may be a chance they won't react well to your confession.

I would normally drop random hints on it, but they're usually too oblivious to pick it up, or it just seems like I'm doing it naturally. T_T I'm too timid to go up to my crush and blatantly tell them, "I freakin' love you!"
