Recently I've been running out of things to do on PC besides DCC and VP so I thought "sigh, might as well join a club".

And I freaked out because there is a.. GAY club! :D

And I'm a super dyke!

So hello everybody, super rainbows and unicorns for everyone.
WOO! YES! ENTHUSIASM! THIS IS WHAT WE NEED! THIS FILLS THE HOLE IN OUR AGENDA!

Yeah, welcome to the club Insomniac! And if you're so super, what's your power? Rainbow farts? Super gayness? Unicorn summoning?

This conversation reminds me of this video:



(Hi New Members)
Ohmygosh, I had never seen that video before but it's fricken hilarious, and also so, so accurate. HETEROSEXUAL DESTRUCTION NIGHT. HOORAY.

Thanks for sharing! :D

Haha, that video IS great. I want to be referred to as "your gayness" xD

I have to say, I am really glad this club exists. When I first joined in 2005 (O_O), I remember someone making a gay thread or club and it was locked almost immediately. I am glad things have become more accepting over the years.

I just find it funny that whenever the issue of legalizing gay marriage or stuff like that comes up in the spotlight, those who oppose it automatically claim that everyone that isn't heterosexual is trying to "transform society" and all this bs. lol. That video was spot-on. Equality is a right, not a privilege. Damn you, non-believers! We just want what's fair!

Anyways, that's surprising to hear that a potential LGBT club existed before on PC but it was closed. Maybe it wasn't a club after all? Who knows lol.

There was at least one other club before this one that I know of, that didn't really get popular, and closed down. If a club goes without any posts for 30 days it gets closed, and you have to make a new thread for it, if you want to continue the club. So, there's probably been a few.

I agree. Equality is a human right.

I remember a mod coming to the thread and saying that they didn't think people would feel comfortable discussing gay-related issues, so they closed it. This was in 2005, almost ten years ago (omg I am so old ;_;). Even back then, homosexuality wasn't as accepted as it is today. We have made such progress in the last few years :3

If I remember correctly, this club came into existence after a 1000+ post thread (about gay marriage specifically or something) in the chat forum got so off topic all the time and basically turned into what this club is. I think at one point people were just posting pictures of their favorite celebrities and stuff like that.

It's kind of amazing to think that PC was ever unwilling to talk about gay things.

@Scarf: I still laugh at the irony.

In other news, now that I have a mate...
I want to come out to my family. I know that they probably won't care, but, I'm still scared....

It is possible that it was the moderator that was bias, not PC itself.

And that is great! I understand how it can be scary; it was nerve racking when I came out to my parents. But just be yourself and practice in front of the mirror a few times.

I was so nervous that I had to write it down for my mom to read.

I know that feel bro. I still haven't been able to work up the courage to tell anyone I'm trans. It's like, I know most of them will be supportive but it's not an easy thing to just randomly bring up in a conversation, you know?

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck and I hope you can find the strength to tell them. Remember, even if it makes them uncomfortable at first, if they really love you they'll accept you for who you are.

*notice "RIP MCR" in user title*

Well, obviously she's referring to something else... I mean, there's no way My Chemical Romance broke up, r-right?

*looks it up*

That's three of my favorite bands that have broken up in the last three years. What the hell. :'(

Yeah... they broke up... and they are my favorite band of all time...

But they were actually big supporters of gays, which made me love them even more. I loved Frank's (the guitarist) phrase "Homophobia is gay."

I have always thought that Gerard (the singer) is bi, even though he is married to a woman.

Mine too. Hopefully they'll all form new bands that are equally amazing.

In other news, here's a funny story I'm sure you'll all get a kick out of. Don't vaccinate your kids, guys, we wouldn't want them to catch the gay.

I would love to get a big list of all the crazy stuff people have claimed will turn you gay. Eating chicken is the weirdest one I can remember at the moment.

Oh, I've heard taking French classes makes you gay once. Or getting good grades and overall trying your best at school and not getting drunk with your friends at age 15 makes you gay. And not liking football. And not wanting to testosteron trip and destroy stuff with a football every PE lesson.

You know, when I think back to French class and the people in it, this one actually seems kind of plausible. :p

No, probably it's because too many of the straight guys don't want anyone to think they're gay for taking French.

My French teacher did reminisce on his experiences when he studied French at the university. He recalled being around only women, and the few men were all, as he put it, differently oriented.

Though I don't think that in my case, it could be true. I was forced to weigh my options between German and French (I HAVE to take at least 2 foreign language classes, one of them always being English) so I went with what worked best for me, which was French.

This must explain why I am gay :O Lol jk.

Nothing causes you to be gay. You are born that way. I remember having crushes on girls when I was in kindergarten. What excuse could they come up with to explain that?

The correlation is likely the other way round, ie. homosexuals are statistically more inclined to XYZ.
This would be due to subtle subcultural differences, I'd think... you know, the same sort of thing that means boys and girls usually play different games.

I'm 15.
I'm bisexual.
I really don't like football, and I've never gotten drunk.

lol

I'm not sure what I said, but I'm keeping it!

Posting in this thread will turn you queer. It's scientifically proven, yep.

And, I'm glad you guys enjoyed the video! I thought it was pretty funny.

I'm 21 and have never tasted alcohol, don't like football, and took French throughout high school, and I'm only half gay. Maybe I have a high resistance to the gay? :P

I'm like 120% gay and I've never taken a French class in my life.

This just got weird.

I have a legit-ish question.

After it was a decent amount of time, I decided to tell my best friend of ten years that I was dating a woman. I had come out to him before, but this is the first time I've told him I was actively dating someone. He took it very well. Honestly, he says he doesn't care, and actually asks about how things are going with her.

Anywho, this stuff lead to a discussion of sorts. Technically, as I've said here, I'm bi, with a slight preference towards women. I've dated men before, and this brought up some questions from him. He actually asked if it was like a switch in my head or something. I wacked him in the head with a pen for that question, mainly because I was too dumbstruck to even think of an answer.

He did mention something though, I asked him what if he dated a bi woman, and she got a crush on another girl, what would he think. He laughed and asked if it was serious or not, and I said whatever. The answer he gave was, "I'd be more pissed off if I didn't get to watch."

Thing is... I've heard this before. From many guys, even guys I've dated and mentioned I was bi...

Someone please explain this. I mean I get it. I'm not stupid... but why?


Oh, and hi guys and stuff. I am alive. :3

Being a 15-year-old, hormonal, bisexual male teenager(though I do have a boyfriend).
I think I can help you answer this, I hope.

You know what he means, in that, yes, for many straight males, two females y'know, doing it, is very sexually appealing from thing, yes?

...Damn, I forgot everything else I was going to say...
You can ignore me if you want, I'm just a 15-year-old mated male. :3
