I DIDNT FORGET!!!! just a bit late but i’ve been sooo busy all day i didn’t get a chance until now :(
i realized i wasn’t straight when i was in seventh grade cus i had a FAT crush on this girl and on my birthday me and my friends decided to play spin the bottle (we all identified as girls at the time, yes we’re all lgbt now) and i…… had a great little time to say the least but yeah! one girl mainly was how i found out because i was just way too obsessed for it not to be queer😅
okay i’m also gonna do when i realized that i’m not cis!! it was pretty recent, just over quarantine my friend had been questioning her gender identity and after talking about how she thinks about gender i started to wonder how i felt and realized that i just really didn’t identify with my given gender at all.. i still am not 100% sure ab what i identify as but i definitely feel more comfortable and a weight i didn’t rlly know was there was gone!!
i hope you guys have similar (good) stories!! i’m excited to read them ngl
What my sexuality would be if it depended on which flag I like because I'm still kinda not sure about who I am I'm gonna look at lesbian pan and bi because it's the most known ones that I could identify as
So like the lesbian is very nice I love the colors it looks like a sunset the thing is tho that there is so many of them and I never know which one to use. Also it would be hard to subtly put it in an outfit because the colors are quite similar and there is 5 of them and I like wearing black and I feel like it would be very not subtle
Pan flag idk I'm not the biggest fan of the colors like yeah they would be easy to put somewhere subtly but the shades are too bright and just don't look great together
Bi flag is very basic? I would say because it's a nice color combo you can subtly put in places it's very simple you get the meaning the moment you look at it it's pretty obvious but also the original design was triangles and the pink one was for gay people and like???? What were you thinking??? I get that some people take the things used by their oppressors and make it their own thing but like this is a bit too far for me to just show gay people as a pink triangle (no shade to the creator tho it's just my personal opinion) also lesbians had a black triangle not pink so this feels kinda men focused idk not a big fan of the triangle ok
I feel like the bi flag would be my favorite if the lesbian flag colored things weren't so cute and also it fits some "lesbian aesthetics" very well like cottagecore? Looks so nice with the flag omg also it reminds me of strawberries for some reason lol (strawberries are red but k) and I feel like strawberries are very wlw and I can't explain why
So, fellow lgb and/or ts, when are we going to discuss that a lot (though obviously not all) of our inter-community drama is fairly unnecessary and how it leads to us misdirecting our trauma at other parts/members of the community? Like are we ready for that discussion yet?
hi :) i haven’t done a single day of the pride challenge yet here i am on day #13 answering “when did you realize you aren’t straight?”
for me, it was in sixth grade while the whole class was “at circle” before lunch (i lowkey went to a hippy school lmao.) i was sitting directly across from one of my best friends, and all of the sudden i realized i had a crush on her and went WOAH!! ok then!!
at the time i’m pretty sure i watched joey graceffa and a couple of other lgbtq+ youtubers, so i thought about that stuff pretty regularly. but i don’t think it ever occurred to me that i could be nonstraight until that moment hahaha
at first i called myself pansexual but pretty quickly switched to bisexual just because it felt more right i guess?? i don’t know how to describe it, honestly. i think i lowkey knew i was bi but wanted to be pan because i thought the flag was prettier x.x
but yeah!! now i identify as a biromantic (still not sure about the whole more-than-romance thing haha) demigirl and!! just recently got into my first relationship with a very beautiful and amazing and sweet and awesome non-binary person :)
