    2 years ago when this came out i never knew that they were both guys and i didnt know that 2 guys could love eachother and i was really confused i wasnt hating i just didnt understand it but now im like
    *I FRICKING SHIP IT JWNXOANKW WOWKQNSKOQPQO2929W* 😂😂 and now i understand alot and to say this i always thought he was a girl with a boy haircut 💕💕
    I always loved watching it even though i never understood it i always thought it was really cute x3
    But one thing about me is that im christen and christens dont believen LBGTQ+ stuff because were all straight but not me im lesbian and yet i dont wanna be but its not my fault for liking girls..its my choice and i still love jesus and god but i just feel like im commiting a sin well atleast thats what my friend told me (yes hes homophobic ;-;) but i dont understand why is my question why is it a sin to like your own gender? And why am i lesbian? Why cant i be straight like normal people? im just siting and wondering everyday everytime and everywhere
    Why arent i normal like other people? I still dont understand why but ill just keep in mind that i should be straight not lesbian..

    Hey so I’ve tried this before and it kind of devolved into an argument between two other people, but I’m really curious and would like to try again.
    Is there anyone who genuinely believes homosexuality is wrong/unnatural/should be illegal etc. who would be willing to explain their views to me, preferably in a civilized manner? I’d like to try to have a genuine discussion about it.

    • Alice Bodle

      The problem is that most debates about homosexuality devolve into people accusing the LGBT community into "forcing" their sexualities. It's so fucking frustratjng trying rationalizing with these people.

      That dead end desire causes a burden on society, because people with that abnormal desire fail to use self control

      @pyrochemists you literally just said the same thing again. Do you gave any actual points?

    • pyrochemists
      pyrochemists 7 hours ago +3

      @Alice Bodle that dead end desire only leads to sickness and other problems that are easily avoided with self control

    • Alice Bodle
      Alice Bodle 8 hours ago

      @pyrochemists do you have any proof of that either? Because i don't think you do. All you have done so far was skip all the other party's questions with the same excuses.

    I’m bisexual and planning on coming out to my pan friend. My best friend is homophobic. My community is homophobic. My friend can’t tell people in her own ward (she’s Mormon) that she’s pan. Homophobes, you hurt people. I don’t feel welcome around my best friend. That hurts.

      I am so sorry to hear that, about your community and best friend. Just tell someone that you feel safe around and know will love and accept you no matter what. And if you come out to your best friend, and she/he doesn't like you for being you then their not a real friend.

      But just know that there will always be people out there who love and accept you for who you are. And just to let you know, I'm also bi and I am very proud of you

      Hey so I know that many people are saying you’re trans and that definitely might be true! But depending on how old you are, I wouldn’t say that you should be definite about this or anything. You seem young, so take your time. If you’re confident that you feel this way, try to see if there’s anyone you know will be accepting, if you want to come out (which you should only do when you’re comfortable doing so. Don’t let anyone pressure you). This accepting person can be a friend, a teacher, a parent, whoever. Note that, while I’m not saying “this is a phase!! You’ll grow out of it!”, this may be a phase. Ask yourself, do you genuinely feel like a boy, or do you just dislike typically girly things? Remember, you don’t have to figure this out super quickly. Take your time. Make sure you’re comfortable with yourself and sure about this.

      Oh honey, that is not stupid at all. It just means that your transgender. And there is no a damn thing wrong with that.There is always, always, going to be people who are going to be rude, and just straight up awful but all you have to do is ignore them.

      Yeah, some things they say will hurt. I totally know the feeling. I'm bisexual and I've dealt with a lot of homophobia especially recently. And yes, the things they say have hurt me in the past. But when somebody says something about how you're disgusting, your gonna go to hell and all of the bs, I just ignore them cause I know that they are not correct in any sense.

      I'm not religious in the slightest but I do know one thing. Why would God have created me, just to simply hate me?

      And I just want you to know that despite there being people who won't like you and accept you, you always have to remember that there is people out there who are going to love and accept you for who you are. And I may not know you, but I love and accept you for the way that you are.
