    Comeing out of the closet

    This thread is about comeing out of the closet (not the broom closet) feel free to share your own stories, advice tips, and such. I am too chicken to tell my family but everyone else knows. It took some time to get around but most people have been cool with it (pretty good for a 99% catholic town; then again I do live in the north east) still there are plenty of people who just pounced on that and wont leave me alone. My dad is homophobic as is my brother so I wont be telling them any time soon. Well how did you come out? Do you have any plans to? Do you have any tip or advice for others? So I think that'll be it, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or questioning talk here

    Re: Comeing out of the closet

    I didn't have a big dramatic coming out. I figured out I was gay in high school and I'm very glad to say I have very supportive friends. My best friends were the first to know, and they didn't bat an eye about it. My family (except for my dad) knows, and again they're all supportive too. My mom turned into a mini PFLAG mom, its cute. I know my extended family (uncles and aunts and cousins) have a problem with gays, but honestly, I don't care about their opinion. They've all disowned their own kids and siblings because they were gay, so I'm not holding my breath for them to accept me. I think the reason I'm ok with that is because I know its my life, and I have the support of the people I care about the most. Plus, if people choose to hate me just because of the people I love, then I don't want them in my life. I understand how hard it is for people to come out, and the only advice I can suggest is to make sure you're in a situation where coming out isn't going to endanger you. If its safer for you to be in the closet for a little while longer, then just chill. I don't like when people force others to come out. Its a personal choice. Do it when you're ready.

    I'm a transgendered, bisexual girl and still in the closet in real life. Though I am pretty much out online.

    Just as an aside about the poll, transgender isn't an orientation.

    I am straight but I have had sexual thoughts about women. I have never been with a woman in an intimate way but the thought doesn't repulse me in any way. women are beautiful.

    I'm straight. The thought of being with a guy is not something that even comes close to happening. I have no problem with other avenues of intimacy, we are all free to experience this life on our own terms, as long as it harms no one.

    Re: Comeing out of the closet

    Althought I am straight, I have watched this process with several friends and family members and I can only imagine how emotionally taxing it can be. I would say that it really isn't so different that coming out of the "broom closet" however. It a matter of how open you want to be with your personal preferences/choices/what-not with your family/friends/co-workers/etc.

    I have seen some people lose family over this, but in the end I think being brave (when you are an adult and able to care for yourself away from the people you need to tell of course) is the way to go. It shows you who really cares about YOU and who just cares about the image you present.

    My two cents, from the broom closet perspective and the watching position anyway.

    Good Luck!

    Straight now ... Was curious back in the day ... Now I know what I like and what I want (sorta I guess) ... The real fun is a threesome ... Either way is ok for me ... Two gals or a gal and another guy ... But if it is with another guy and a gal I prefer to work with the gal ...

    Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official; "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

    The Chief nodded in agreement.

    The official continued; "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

    The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied.. "When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine Man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex."

    Then the chief leaned back and smiled; "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."
