  1. I know being an LGBT isn't anyones choice. We can't choose to be gay or not to be. As we grow older, we feel attracted to someone whether it's to the same gender or the opposite and we can't help it as it ain't our choice. But if given the chance, would you choose to be an LGBT? Would you be happy with your decision?
  2. My country is one of those that decided to cut the "gay" scene because "children will turn gay if they watch that". WTF. And now Disney gives our government two choices: 1) release the movie without cutting any scene, or 2) don't release at all. I personally prefer the second choice, because IMO there's no point to release the movie in my country unwillingly and cause LGBT community in my country being attacked. It's so much easier to watch movies legally (just a bit later) on the internet these days. So why worry? But of course, the positive is, through this incident, I saw many non-LGBT people stood up for us. Is the "gay" scene banned in your place/country?
  3. In case some of you don't know, gaydar is "gay radar", which means the ability to "sense" someone's sexual orientations. I used to believe it and I was right most of the time, until these two years my gaydar seems to have broken. The last two or three people that I thought they were turned out to be straight AF. Haha! I read some comments from an article about gaydar, they said it's only something to do with our own stereotype, nothing related to gaydar.
  4. LGBT is never a crime! I don't know what to feel about this news. ;( 'Never seen anything like this': Inside Indonesia's LGBT crackdown http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/31/asia/indonesia-lgbt-rights/index.html
  5. I was just replying to another topic here, about negative reactions to coming out. It got me thinking: what about bullies? I'm sure many of us have been bullied in school, and it was tough, I know! But what if we gather up some advice here about how to deal with this stuff? What would you do if you were bullied? What would you do differently now as opposed to your reactions in the past?
  6. I have 2 female colleagues at work. One is new (been working with us only for a couple of weeks now), and the other one is my friend, she has short hair, dresses casual all the time (comfy pants, large hoodies and so on..) and wears little to no makeup at all. So, yesterday, the new girl and I were talking and, somehow, she asked me if our other colleague is a lesbian! I told her there's no way she's lesbian, she has a family and a happy marriage (to a man), so I asked why did she think that, and the answer was.. she just assumed, because of the clothes and no makeup and all, and I found out there are quite a few people who got the same impression first time they met my colleague. I blame the media. I've thought about it a lot and can't really figure out where do these lesbian stereotypes come from. I was wondering if anyone here has any input on where you think lesbian stereotypes come from? What do you think?
  7. What are some of the most silly, weird, annoying questions people have asked you after you told them you're not straight? Did you find them funny or were you offended? And what do you reply to silly LGBT questions anyway?
  8. How long did it take you to feel like yourself again? I have no desire to be with men, I am attracted to other girls though, but even if I now am sure about my feelings, I still feel 'weird' about it sometimes. I feel like it's going to be very difficult for me to find someone and I'm afraid I'm going to ave to hide myself forever because I'm afraid about what others might think of me. I need to feel like myself again so I'm asking you who are more experienced, how long does it take until that happens? Did you feel better when you came out or can you be a closeted LGBT forever and be OK with it?
  9. Coming out can be difficult and, before officially coming out to family and friends who don't know, I'm sure everyone knows reactions can be both good or bad... But is anyone really prepared to be not accepted as gay/lesbian/etc?
  10. I was wondering, how much encouraging is too much? We (my gf. and I) have a few friends who are afraid to come out. None of them is a teenager anymore, some already have girlfriends but they hide the relationship, some want to meet same sex partners but can't because they're secretly gay. Can't meet someone if you don't put yourself out there... So, we've been out in the open for a while now and felt free and, of course, there's the occasional judging behind our backs but you live with it.. no one's perfect.. and we keep trying to talk to these women and encourage them that it's OK to come out. It's not that scary, and it's a good thing because we'll be there for them to support them through the whole coming out process! However, I was wondering, do we risk forcing these women to come out? We did kinda talk about it a lot... sometimes I feel we're too pushy and I know this is a difficult thing to do, even as adults, so I thought, maybe we should back off for a while. What would you do? Do you usually encourage other people to come out? How much encouraging is too much? How do you know you're not forcing someone to do something they don't want, just because you think coming out is good for them?
  11. Found this on the internet. It looks cute and very information!
  12. I know this is a VERY general question, but I'm curious, what exactly attracts you in other girls? Is it the personality? Is it the physical aspect? Also, are you more attracted to other lesbians, because you know there's a possibility there, or have you ever had feelings for straight girls also?
  13. What contributes to homosexuality? Do you think it is nature or nurture that makes an individual a homosexual. In other words, do you think people are born homosexual or environment creates them. I believe homosexuality is by birth, it is in the DNA. However, I ask this question because some where I read, environment contributes to homosexual tendency.
  14. I hope this is the right place to put this topic, I just wanted to talk about it for a bit, since it bothers me so much! Last year, after the earthquakes tragedy in Italy, I have read something very disturbing: one Italian priest blamed the tragedy on gay civil unions! This is not only outrageous, but absurd in so many ways! But that's not the point. It's not the first time, you know, there were other tragedies LGBTs were blamed for (other earthquakes, hurricanes, the tsunami back in 2011!). My point is, why do you think this happens? It just doesn't make any sense.
  15. I was wondering, why does the LGBT community have the 'need' to come out? Sexuality is personal and, while I understand some cultures are more conservative, most countries in the world aren't (I think). Family can be against it, but they can just as well be against an opposite sex partner they simply don't like. It happens a lot.. Happened tome with my first boyfriend, no one in the family liked him. So, I was comparing situations, what's the difference between a boyfriend loved ones don't approve of, and a girlfriend? They either approve or they don't, your feelings will remain the same whichever the case. I wonder if the day will ever come, when a couple can just "be", without the need to explain your sexuality to your family and friends. The day when you would come home and present your girlfriend to your parents.
  16. I was thinking since my GF and I both are not very into having kids, I was wondering how many of you (as part of the LGBT community) would want to adopt children? According to this article, same-sex couple child adoption is now 1 in 10 in England (for year 2016).
  17. Do you think it's just about religion and cultural concepts or is it something deeper within the human mind? Some kind of aversion? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
  18. I knew some of his songs and I like them. But I don't know him well, until I read this article: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/dec/26/george-michael-lgbt-rights-i-never-had-a-problem-with-being-gay. Imagine someone who came out back in 90s, is a much admirable person. He died as a result of heart failure on a Christmas day. No one's expecting this to happen. R.I.P, George Michael. I think 2016 is sucks, too many things happened. Let's hope 2017 for a fresh good year for all of us.
  19. We all know Ellen is one of the most inspiring people on Earth, at least this is to me and many LGBT and non-LGBT people. Love her show, love her personality and love what she is doing all the time. President Obama on awarding Ellen Degeneres with the Presidential Medal of Freedom:
