I’m not reposting all of #Ellen’s recent coming out celebration episode videos just for the hell of it or cuz she’s inspirational, though that’s part of it.
Straight people will never really understand what it’s like to come out. So it’s easy to judge and say shit like “well no one needs to know” but we need you to know. We need those words to come out of our mouths. We need to feel normal.
The first person I told that I’m bisexual to was my older sister. It happened so fast. I was on MySpace on a group I created to help LGBT youths come out and express their frustrations and as I encouraged them to come out I realized I hadn’t. So I looked up, saw Dill, and said “I’m bi.” And she said “ok that’s fine.”
Those words coming out of her mouth, was the base to my courage to come out to others. And from that moment I told any one and everyone in any situation till this day without a single care as to what others might say or who I could lose. I don’t flaunt it but I don’t usually flaunt any part of my personality anyway. I keep shit personal but I do talk about it. I do talk about women or check them out with my friends in public.
I’m bisexual. And no, you don’t have to like it but you do have to accept it, if you plan on staying in my life. If not, feel free to click the “unfriend” button.
