              I thought I was straight for years but as of this past April I've realized I'm demisexual! Not out of the closet to anyone irl though.

                While PC seems to have a relatively large portion of gays vs straights compared to any real life situation I've been in, I think it's more so that the gays who currently lead and hang around this section are quite vivid outspoken people, and they like showing off their sexuality, so it becomes pretty visible in public. As I've understood it, about the lingo and all, it's totally fine to join in as long as you're not slurring, gay or not ^^

                  I think the larger perceived percentage compared to other places is simply because people are more likely to congregate where they feel safe and can be themselves.

                  If people around here were generally intolerant, racist or unaccepting towards others then I wouldn't be posting here.

                  How can you even read quoted messages on that forum theme? The font color is so similar to the quote box color.
