Someone said :
Said I ruined Christmas, told him wasn't telling them to hurt them, said I should change, told him I can't change who I am, he said what about work said I'm not changing any way.I work, he said what about having girlfriend said not had one in over 15 years, it's the toughest reaction i have experienced everyone else I have told didn't care, only one friend cried
It amazes me how blinkered and self-centred the reaction of some people can be.
If they only knew about the years of pain, anguish, secrecy, mental torture that we've gone through over the years,
trying to figure out why the hell society and other people have such a problem with this simple, simple thing.
All we want is to snuggle with someone we are attracted to and they are attracted to us.
We are completely innocent and completely harmless and all of this crap we have to go through is so fucking unfair and unjust.
I've always thought that if we sat our parents down and told them in detail about all this waste of time and emotion.
A couple of years after I came out, my dad was trying to get me to go to mass at xmas so I actually sat my dad down and told him that I get an erection when I see a man I like and I don't get an erection for women, so why the fuck should I try to have a girlfriend?
I think this clarifies clearly what being homosexual is.
And this is completely harmless to anyone else and completely harmless to society so why the fuck should I go through the torture of trying to become heterosexual?
Lots of people never hear this explanation and they go around thinking that homosexuality is some nebulous thing about emotions and psychology.
If they are genuinely heterosexual, they don't think about the reality of how they would go about making themselves never get an erection for women ever again and always get an erection for men.
I wonder how he would react if you asked him that!
Anyway, I assume he didn't bring it up again since the night you came out to him?
