Hey DU -- Guess what? Breaking News.
Edited on Thu Jun-17-04 01:44 PM by m-jean03
Well, basically... I'm gay! Yes, a lesbian!! You heard me right!! I told Mom and Dad the other day(they're still standing!) and now it's time for all of you cool people to know.

Maybe this seems strange, considering how much I have flirted with the guys here, but what can I say? You guys are all just so much fun, and I was a closet case. I love your unabashed vulgarity, your energy, and many other things about each of you. But we play for the same team, bros. :hi:

CFS has made self-awareness really hard to come by these past few years, by totally suffocating my sexual desires. So, an unexpected side effect of healing has been to realize that I am gay!! :wow: Needless to say, at times it's been as frightening as it has been exhilarating and liberating, to finally step into the light and realize who I am. Of course, in many ways it changes nothing. But it's also as though I am finally whole.

Everything in my life makes sense now, from my good friend in fifth grade repeatedly telling me how I reminded him of his lesbian aunt, to falling in love with my best girlfriend in junior high, to having a series of failed and humiliating relationships with men in my late teens. And, oh yeah, there's that awfully funny feeling I get lately when surrounded by beautiful women in their summer clothes! :D

Okay, had to get that off my chest. If you've read this far, thanks! And carry on! :hi:

62. Yup, there is. . .

. . .and having mind-numbing CFS for all of one's adult life will keep you stifling in there. :(

I know, I am so liberal and have been all my life, I probably seem the least likely candidate for the closet. Yet it was so. A broken heart put me there many years ago.

70. Well, at least you're coming out at a time...
that is much more accepting ... My closet wasn't a closet at all... just a tiny little rural conservative town in Texas (too many years ago) where NO ONE was gay (or in a very dark closet). Once I went to college though.... no holds barred! :bounce:

Welcome to your freedom! :)

146. First off, m-jean, congrats on recognizing who and what you are
Some go their whole lives without doing so. Not just talking about sexual orientation but so many things we repress or deny for a multitude of different reasons.

And it's hard enough finding love in this world for both straight and gay people (not to mention life being too short to waste in Blind Alleys), that it is important to know your sewxuality, one way or the other, and be condifednt and happy in it.

Sure, the hetero DU community (most of us with typically American male brains hardwired straight ot our Crucial Heads) would love to be sort of squeezed between you and a potential mate, if you know what I mean :loveya:

But that would be the choice of you and that mate, wouldn't it? And if you have a "No Manflesh in the Pile" Rule (did you see last night's South Park? HILARIOUS! Try to catch a rerun if you missed it), so be it.

Anywa, congrats, learning is half the battle. Now all the remains is the doing.

"To know and not to do...is not to know."

I have been reading your posts, and as an Honorary Gay Person, I can clearly see that you have not memorized your handbook.

The recruiter calls the Homosexual Agenda Headquarters to ensure that the toaster is sent to the newest Homosexual member.

Before I met my husband, I was personally responsible for at least 4 men turning gay. I am so proud of that! *sniff*

Good for you!

a friend of mine killed himself this year because he was afraid of his family finding out. the truth is, they probably already knew. he was in his 30's and still struggling.

106. Chicks are cute!

So, I wonder if I can call myself a "cat" now! You, know, because I chase chicks? :D

27. You're being honest with yourself, your family and your friends.
And that's to be celebrated! And the timing is cool...Gay Pride Month!

Welcome to the club. :-)

50. Thanks Terry!

:loveya:
Boy, honesty is scarier than I thought it would be!!
My heart was pounding as I hit "post message" on this thread, believe it or not! :D

I think my parents are a little shocked, and at the same time, I think
they always suspected it. But they are supportive, I'm so thankful.
Last night, *I* was the only one on the verge of tears.

Keep talking to your parents about it. You have the door open...keep it open! My coming out to my folks didn't, um, "turn out as I planned", shall we say. And I didn't talk to them about my homosexuality for years after it.

Being gay is a part of you. It's not something to be "swept under the rug".

And, as you've noticed, there's some pretty terrific gay people here. :-) Ready to dispense advice if you need it.

We'll see where this goes.

I am kind of shy/scared to talk more about it, but you're totally right that I must do so. Thanks for the good advice. :toast:

113. Well, I respect the being honest with yourself...
And I find that if you're honest with others, everything works out. Also, when my best friend told me he was gay, back about five years ago, what I told him was, "And?" I've found it's a good reaction. If I loved you before you told me, I'm definately going to love you after. I don't judge someone based on who they have sex with. THanks for sharing.

118. Ah, my sweet, sweet darlin'. You're so cool!!
Goddamn, I'm happy for you.

As Jerry sang, "Once in a while you get shown the light/In the strangest of places if you look at it right."

How wonderful to get well, and then to heal in a totally different way too. I'd say you're lucky, but no---it's 'cause you have a good and honest heart. Darlin', it's YOU.

Having said that, I will be quite despondent if you don't keep sending me them smiley-faces with the hearts popping up over their heads when I write something you like.

Some of the comments when I came out:


  • ...and your point is...?
  • ...this is supposed to be news...(from girlfriend)
  • ...we wondered when you were going to show up (friends at gay club)
  • ...you don't look any less depressed than usual
  • ...so you finally figured it out

183. This is great news
I'm so proud. I know from personal experience that this is a difficult decision to make (telling loved one's and friends and all) so I am being honest when I say "I feel you". I'm glad you were able to tell your parents and all of us!

I bet you feel so liberated, I know I did after everyone was told the big news.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask.
Let us know in more detail how your parents took it.
For me, they were a little shocked and saddedned but then they turned around and fully support me now.

My dad, he knew all along I think. I have always been his buddy and he knew what a flaming butch tomboy I really was. I think hearing me say it was a bit of a shock, still. But hugs and support was all I got. :-)

My mom, it was tougher, just because she is a woman, and I think she finds it strange and a little discouraging we have so little in common. . . But she still took it well. When I said , "this doesn't change anything" she said, "well, maybe just methods of pregnancy..." :D So I knew then things were going to be OK.

Thanks again! :yourock:

195. My parents reacted differently then I thought they would
My mom, who is more open-minded, sensitive and supportive, completely flipped. She was upset that I wouldn't marry. have kids, she was worried about the 'unsafe' lifestyle and AIDS and all that.

My dad, who is macho macho old school Italian, was so great about it. The only thing he said was "Are you sure?"I said-"yes" He said--"Ok, be safe". He said there is only one thing I would change about you and it's not that you're gay, it's you smoking cigarettes.

Now they're both cool with it!

220. Thats cool. I am used to Lucy. I always suspected she was gay.
She always pulled the football out from me and I never got it. I am not sure but I think she is gay. I know snoopy is gay cause he was always dancing. On halloween I only got rocks. Linus played classical so I guess thats gay. They all displayed some quirk that could be interpetted as gay.

Maybe I am gay but if I am. I am a lesbian in a mans body. I am glad you are free to be you now!!!

If I come to your door next halloween, can I get some candy?
:party:
