I love trans girls but i still see myself as straight
Wow! That felt good I’m sure! I’m glad you were able to help a friend
I have a question, were you born gay or is it a choice that you made? I know my neice is gay and I remember her being quite and shy. I never remember her showing any interest in boys. I myself am not gay but I think that it’s a good thing to come out if you are.
I think the politically correct answer is that you are born gay. I really don’t know though. When I realized I was gay it explained what was different about me, and I felt at peace with myself.
Nobody can choose to be gay.
Some discover they’re gay later in life, some know early on.
not trying to be rude maybe i dont understand but i dont see the point in publicly coming out. why tell a bunch of people about your sexual identity/preference, it is personal
I agree that romantic/sexual preferences should be on a need to know basis. But what I came out with is a gender identity, and in order to transition I will at some point need to change my name and my appearance. I did what I did to soften the blow, so there wouldn’t be a huge shock if I do one day get a new passport or have surgeries or hormonal treatments.
Also because I want as many people as possible to know they should call me Miika, not my birth name.
Is @Miika a Finnish name or is it also used in other Scandinavian countries?
It’s a lesser known variant of the Finnish name Mika.
It all comes down to pronounciation. With the english sounds, Mika sounds “myk-kah” while Miika is more “Mee-ka”
I have an uncle named Michael, but he grew up in Sweden where Mille is a nickname for Michael.
Funny enough my sister is also called Mille, short for Emilie
I also have a relation named Michael. We are German. I love the German pronunciation of that name. It’s so cool.
Though in our family we say Makkel for short lol
People should feel comfortable being themselves every day. It’s sad that a day has to be set aside.
I think it’s nice that there’s a day for it.
Some people, like me, need that extra push and the excuse it provides. “It’s coming out day so I might as well”
Keeps people from asking “why now?”
I hear you and I support it. I just wish people wouldn’t question it.
Me too. In an ideal world, people should be free to ask for proper pronouns without having to weight the pros and cons.
This happened to me, except replace gay with Schizophrenic.
That’s what scares me most, as one of the things I keep close to me is my diagnosis, so coming out as gay I would worry I’d get the same reaction. I cannot afford to lose any more people from my life, otherwise I will have nobody
People who call themselves friends, yet are willing to leave you that quickly really aren’t your friends.
Love shouldn’t be conditional.
I am not sure if it’s because of where I live, but being gay in my town is not accepted as much as other places.
My step-brother is gay, and he moved out of this town because he used to get harassed so much and beaten up for his sexual orientation
Also, I have no reason to come out as I am yet to find a partner
A lot of folks now make their preferred pronouns part of their email signature. This is becoming more common place at my workplace, for example.
