I was 6th grade, and I remember walking around in the hallway and going "He's hot." or "I'd do him."

Ugh I'm disgusted in those guys Renii. I'm reminded of a line from my blog, "The fact that we prefer penises does not mean that we want yours". You should tell them not to flatter themselves. One day, everybody will wake up.

OMG YOU WERE THINKING THAT IN 6TH GRADE? ;o; So young, lol. Or maybe I was just sheltered. I didn't know how sex even worked til 10th grade. I mean, I knew the technical stuff, but I mean, I literally thought that a guy's penis slithered into a girl's vagina. And that's all she wrote. lol As for how homosexual sex would happen, I don't even think I wanna try to remember how I thought that was supposed to work out. XD; I was dumb, yeah yeah.

I hit puberty early >_> And had corrupting cousins. And I spent my childhood watching soap operas.

...yes, I can lay the blame anywhere. :3

Well I knew about sex when I was in 4th grade, but idk. I hit puberty in 6th grade, but eh, sex wasn't on the brain. XD; I guess I wasn't informed enough about it and wasn't really curious enough to know. OH WELL tales of a sheltered child etc.

    I made that clear. I was annoyed at them. They replied, "we were just confirming and publicly announcing that you are bi."
    I am trying so hard to be angry... But the talk like 5 year olds -_-

    You're still better off than people I know. They didn't hit puberty till they were 16. :O
    Oh well I started puberty at around 9-10, so... :P

    Oh, I'd forgotten it was tomorrow. I mean, I knew it was happening since my friend kept talking about saving up enough drinking money to go (because apparently Pride in SF is just an excuse to drink at 3 in the afternoon), but I already made plans and it seems like yet another year before I can actually see it in person.

      At what point in life did you come to realize you are [whatever sexual orientation you are]? Well, sexual orientation aside, while I didn't know the name for it until much later, I've known I was transgender since I was a baby. I had long hair until I started school, and for my first three Halloweens I was Raggedy Anne, a Native American princess, and the Queen of Hearts, respectively. Haha. I remember really accepting it and contemplating telling my parents when I was 7, but that never happened until I was 22. *sweatdrop*

      As for sexual orientation, I wasn't really sure what to think growing up. When I was 11 I formally decided to keep my gender a secret "for the rest of my life," and since I wasn't a gay guy or a straight guy, and had no intentions of 'playing' either, I consequently denied myself from exploring my sexual preferences. I mistook dysphoria for attraction for the longest time, and finally accepted that I was straight when I was around 19.

      I just heard about this on Twitter too, I'm so excited! I literally cannot stop smiling, and I don't even live anywhere near New York! I made a thread about it in Other Chat, y'all should post!

      How wonderful is it? We got New York!

      EDIT: It seems fitting that my 666th post is in the LGBT thread. I should have put it in the atheist alliance, but oh well XD

        I'm going to Minus18, it's a organisation which organises parties for gay and lesbian teens under 21 (straight people are allowed to come of course too!). This time it's a mask party ; D

        I have a question. Are any of you bothered by the use of the term "gay" to express disapproval. Example: "That's so gay."?

        I'm not. I actually don't think that people should have to filter their language if they clearly didn't mean for it to be an attack on a group of people. I think that people need to lighten up and drop this whole politically correct nonsense where people can't speak their minds because it might offend someone.

        There's a clear difference is using slurs to put down a homosexual and saying that something they disapprove of is "gay."

        Remember, that word actually means happy, so technically, using it to mean homosexual is also an incorrect usage of the word.

        I was probably around 13 - 15 when I figured out I was attractive to boys >.<
        But I'm bisexual. ;3.
        But I live more to the heterosexual side, But I do find boys attractive. But I'm not exactly "open" to it, since in the past I tried it, but I had @$$holes friends who would call out your fail, or anything they dont agree on, and bash it to you for your whole life. But the people I care about know I am, but just not everyone, basically it's non of their beeswax, man. Lol.

        But I'd like to join tho :3

        Well that is an interesting question. I mean I use it. :x But I dont say it to my gay friends except my bestie who is lesbians, and she said "hey, I'm gay you know", and I said "I know, but I loooove you", and She said "I prefer you used, "That is so homosexual"", she said she uses it all the time.
        But everyone knows the rapper Eminem, uses slurrs that offends homosexuality people. But he said in an interview the word "[email protected]" isnt really towards homosexual, he said when he was growing up, that word was throwed alot in battles, and raps. He also said "If you're Straight, Gay, White, Black, Fat or Skinny, If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you". So the word gay has two meanings too, Homosexual gay, and Happy Gay. But the slur for gay has been thrown around since i was in middle school and Highschool, its just grew on me when I'm like pissed like at this game "this is so gay" as in "Lame" not in a homophobic way. More of a lame, stinks, suck term. But mostly my friends who are gay dont care, they laugh and say it too, sometimes.

        When I hear people say "That's so gay" (though it's actually been quite a while since I've heard that so maybe the times are a-changing) I say things like "No, that's so straight" or "Yeah, it's totally attracted to _____ of the same sex." Basically, I make fun of them and try to make using the word in that context sound lame so no one will do it anyone. But yeah, it does bother me, partially because it's unconsciously hateful and partially because it's just a lazy/stupid use of English.

        Now I'm curious. Does anyone hear stuff like that on a daily basis? I'd like to think we've kind of moved past that now.

        This is where I disagree. I don't see it as hateful if it's not used in a context where it refers negatively to homosexuality. I just see it as slang. Just like the word "gay" developed a new meaning from happy to homosexual, this could be yet a new meaning. Slang terms have been added to the dictionary over time.

        It doesn't offend me as such, but yeah it does bug me. Mostly because it's completely unnecessary, and when people used it in school it was clear that it did come from the homosexual meaning and was not a new meaning unto itself. We have enough words to express "bad", we don't need another one.

        It is a little offensive & I understand some people aren't doing it of hate, but like Raichu said there are so many other out there you can use out there to describe your disapproval over something. Think about it this way, people don't say that's so black to say they disapprove of something or think it's stupid.
