However, just because someone's bi or pan doesn't mean they're an attention *****. I know 2 girls who will date anyone for attention.. Just constantly recycle boyfriends over and over and make stupid decisions.

I'm definitely not saying only LGBT people do this, either. I know PLENTY of straight girls who put out the needy vibe and get a whole ton of boyfriends and then break up with them for attention.. Ugh.

But yes, the stereotype of bi and pans trying to **** everyone they meet needs to stop. It's inappropriate. Only some idiots actually do that

I.e. my cousin. Occasionally he just slips into convo "so uh.... have you gotten laid yet?" It's quite annoying really.

Also this is Aeon. I have switched to a different account in order to accomodate my slowly impending changes to my life (pretty much starting fresh for the most part.)

Oh I was wondering who you were. :p

Speaking of that, I hate it when my mom or grandmother asks, "So who do you like?". It makes me so uncomfortable and I usually have to lie..

I know exactly how you feel.

Every time I go to a get together with my mom's family (a huge farming family, and most of my aunts and uncles, and a fair number of my cousins, who are all at least 15 years older than me, got married quite young), I get asked (mostly by my uncles) why I didn't bring my boyfriend.

So of course I say "because I don't have one."

And nobody ever believes me. They all just think I'm embarrassed. And I doubt me coming out as ace will change any of that, at least with my extended family.

It's starting to get weird with my sister too. She's six years younger than me, so it wasn't until a couple years ago that we really started getting along and actually being able to have real conversations. But now she's gotten to that stage in life where when she says a guy is "cute" she means it in, well... a totally different way than I do, haha. I've been trying to slowly work my way into telling her I'm ace, just by being careful about how I phrase things, and mentioning things like how I don't find certain ("conventionally attractive") actors attractive, but I do like the way certain actors look not because I find them attractive but because they have an interesting face.

I'll get there eventually I guess.

I'll probably just blurt it out one day without meaning to. That's the way these things usually happen with me, haha XD

Sorry for throwing in an unrelated topic, but I've been rather confused lately. Exactly what status is the U.S. in regarding same-sex marriage? The conflict has been turbulent lately, I can't keep up. >.<

At least for now it is up to the States. The striking down of DOMA though has made it so couples can receive federal benefits, which DOMA would not allow, instead of just State benefits. Most States still don't recognize same-sex marriage, but acceptance has been picking up more momentum than before.

Cus I hate double-posting, I told my best friend I was trans* a week or so ago. His reaction was just as positive as my mom's if not more so.

Can I just say how much I like the term "ace?"

And congrats, Aeon/TéaQQ! You've got a good friend there.

And the whole status thing in the US is that the overarching federal level of the government is okay with same-sex marriage. So things that typically involve the federal government (like the military, federal taxes, immigration, etc.) are all going to be okay if you're legally married. Only trouble is that you can only be married in a minority of states. So, like, if you lived in New York, and wanted to marry someone from New Zealand and bring them over to the US you could do like that any straight married couple. There's only a weird grey area if you then decided to move states to one where they don't allow same-sex marriage. No one is sure what would happen then since you were legally married in one state, but are now living in another. States traditionally have recognized marriages from other states, but who knows if that's how this will play out.

It depends on the state's laws. Some would recognize a marriage from another state, and some wouldn't. I don't remember which state it was, but one recently changed its laws to not recognize any marriages from other states in response to it becoming federally legal.

I wouldn't worry so much about the US right now and start looking toward other countries. England is the latest domino to fall, not far behind France. The gays are taking over Europe!

Europe looks more appealing each and every day. You have epic castles and history, cute boy bands that actually produce good music, tons of crazy other awesome music, they got better tea than we do, and now that sassy french gay guy can get married.

Europe, at least western Europe is a place I want to visit so much

Sadly Russia-Europe and Greece, as well as a lot of eastern countrys all have bad stuff. It is illegal to be openly gay in russia, and if your trans in greece then you are going to be put into a gehtoo similar to what Germany did in WWII

Go western Europe! Please fix eastern erupoe 0u0'

So I just attended my first gay wedding. Sort of.

A sort of friend from several years ago got married a few years ago, but not where it was legal, and she just moved back to California earlier this year, and since it's legal now in California they're now legally married. They had an impromptu party a few hours from where I am and it seemed like a good idea so I went. It was nice. Nothing that looked like a wedding, just people hanging around and eating barbecue.

Out of curiosity, was it a barbeque or was it a grill? Slow-cooked low heat or fast-cooked high heat? I just learned this the other day, Canadians get it wrong all the time. Sorry I'm excited at applying newly-learned knowledge XD

I don't really know much about barbecue. All the food was vegan and gluten-free (lots of veggies and fruits on skewers) because one of them is vegetarian (and knows some vegans) and the other is gluten intolerant. That might determine how you should cook it. I dunno. I'm a terrible cook myself.

Oh, and um, here's a RAINBOW to make sure my post is still on topic.

I'd like to attend a gay wedding, unfortunately this is Kansas, and it's not legal here. Which is ironic considering that everyone that I know (mostly) fits into one LGBT category or another. Even if we held a celebration, Westboro would probably show up, like they do to everything else around here. I hate it.

I've attended a gay wedding, and it was quite fun! They tried more to have fun than make things too serious.

The food was pretty all over the place though, and I ended up with toast points (which I didn't know were a thing) and oysters, which are disgusting ;~;

Which, really, is how it should be for everyone, amirite? Your gender doesn't matter. Your love does.

Maybe something as simple as "I now pronounce you married"? Idk. I never really thought about it before, but now I am wondering what exactly they would say.

I was wondering if anyone here as heard Same Love by Macklemore? It is an amazing song about gay rights and it is all over the radio! The song apparently just went platinum. I think it is great that a song that would have been controversial not too long ago is now a hit. It shows how far we've come. If you haven't heard it, I suggest you listen to it.

Yes. I went to the youtubes thanks to you, and wooooow. It was absolutely amazing!! Macklemore is an absolute wordsmith and it was awesome hearing him express his message ... probably much much better than any of us here XD.

My friend told me about this song. It's good. I'm not much of a rap fan, but I liked it. Interesting that it's a white rapper though. I'm guessing there's too much stigma for a lot of black rappers to do something similar. Maybe that's already happened though, I wouldn't know.

I haven't heard a lot of his music, but from what I've seen, he hits hard at the non-mainstream side of things, so that just where he's coming from. There are black rappers that get at the non-mainstream topics/attitudes as well. I don't feel that there's any real stigma for black rappers. If they want to be mainstream, sure - but that's the same for fitting into any group, you have to go with the flow.

Have you guys heard "All-American Boy" yet? It's an openly gay song about a guy having a crush on another guy.

Lyrics for those that don't want to watch the vid, which you should do...:

Spoiler:

Ripped jeans, only drinks whiskey,
I find him by the fire while his girl was getting frisky.
Oh, I say we go this road tonight

He smiles, his arms around her,
But his eyes are holding me, just a captive to his wonder.
Oh, I say we go this road tonight

Now I know that that's your girl, I mean no disrespect,
The way that shirt hugs your chest boy, I just won't forget.
I'll be sittin here, drinking my whiskey.
I won't say goodnight unless I think ya might miss me.

Be my all-american boy tonight,
Where everyday's the Fourth of july,
And it's alright, alright.
And we can keep this up till the morning light.
And you can hold me deep in your eyes.
And it's alright, alright.
Be my, be my,
My All-American boy.

Ripped jeans, tight shirt,
He lights a cigarette, you know I'm glad that she can't stand it.
Oh, I drink the moonlight from his eyes

Now hold there, just a moment,
I want to take this in now, we don't need no photo of it, no.
We should go this road tonight.

Now I know that that's your girl, and I don't give a damn.
She's been cussin' and cryin', she don't know what she has.
So I'll be sittin here, tryin' hold down my whiskey,
You tell your girl good night cause somebody'd like to kiss me, ohh.

Be my all-american boy tonight.
Where everyday's the Fourth of july.
And it's alright, alright.
And we can keep this up till the morning light.
And you can hold me deep in your eyes.
And it's alright, alright.
Be my, be my,
My All-American boy.

Of all the girls and boys to look my way,
Ain't no body ever hit me this way.
So won't you come back with me,
And lay with me a while.

I'm gonna wrestle you out of them clothes,
Leave that beautiful body exposed,
And you can have my heart and my soul and my body...

Just be mine.

Be my All-American boy tonight.
Baby you light my fire!
I'll make you feel alright, alright!

And we can keep this up till the morning light.
And you can hold me deep in your eyes.
And it's alright, alright!
Be my, be my
Just, be my, be my
My all-american boy


The video's pretty beautiful, and so is the the singer/writer's story. I suggest you look him up.
