Does anyone else here get stigmatized by their own social circle any time you express sexual interest in someone? It’s the people who say they love you that won’t let you change. I call it gaslighting. Gaslighting is a personal pan gossip serving from hater to hated face to face. They make you question your own reality any time you get a sexual urge, and to me that’s called “sexual discrimination”. Thoughts?
It’s not either. Discrimination is being prejuidiced based on your gender/sexuality. Gaslighting is something else. Why do you think people treat you different? Do you come off as odd or creepy? I’d suspect your giving off the wrong signals and it’s nothing to do with either term. Perhaps rephrasing things and trying again. Some terms and ideas here are very triggering and not kosher.
