My take on gender and sexuality and a little on me.
I’m going to start off by saying this: this is my opinion. I’m not trying to persuade you with what I believe is right, even though I completely believe that what I believe is right. This is me putting myself out there, so please respect my thoughts and read this open minded.
I identify as gay. I’m white. I’m a male. Not necessarily straight passing but regardless I’m cis. All my life that I can remember, I’ve been attracted to the same gender. I didn’t know what it meant but I remember having a crush on a boy in my kindergarten class. I had no idea what was going on, just thought those were normal friendship feelings, maybe they were I was only like 5. Either way I was about this boy. He moved away after 1st grade to Tennessee and that was when I experienced my first heartbreak.
I didn’t hide my feminine side when I was growing up. My parents actually embraced it and I remember my mom and my aunt encouraging me to workout with them in my cousins rainbow leotard that was 2 sizes too small.
So I’ve had it pretty easy growing up in a household that allows expression of all kinds. I understand a lot of people don’t have this kind of experience and words cannot describe for how sorry I feel. I will do whatever it takes to help the people singled out get to a better place physically and mentally.
I believe that sexuality is on a spectrum that may change it may not as well as gender. Gender isn’t so black and white with people. Sometimes it’s gray, maybe even kinda different shades of gray each day. This isn’t something for you to choose for someone else. This is entirely up to the person to decide. And using they/them pronouns isn’t that difficult to get used to.
This started out with me saying that I respect your opinion, but really if you’re the type of person that doesn’t accept some people as people, I don’t respect you. You don’t get my respect if you don’t respect people based on the gender, sexuality, race, religion or class or whatever the hell group of people you hate. Also fuck nazis and fascists and the white supremacists in our government.
I hope you enjoyed getting a little deep and personal with my beliefs. If you didn’t like this and you completely disagree with all that I said go suck a fuck and write a book about it.
