    Wow literally couldn’t have put it better. Despite sometimes wishing to be straight as it would be “easier” you gotta embrace who you are.

    So PatrickUK definitely with you. Gay for me all the way

    If I wasn’t trans, then I would definitely be straight, but ever since discovering myself being male I knew I would still like men and I don’t really mind that. I don’t think I could be in a relationship with a woman.

    Would definitely choose to be straight. If only it were actually a choice

    If we are creating a fantasy universe then I would just make the universe one where being our true selves is celebrated rather than hated.

    If we are positing having to live in this universe with all of its history and prejudices but changing it to where our orientation is a choice of course I would be straight. I would also in this universe want to be able to choose other things and thus I would also be a White Cis Male, Tall, Attractive and Extroverted. I would also have been born into a family that actually wanted me and was upper class. What the hell, if we are creating a fantasy self that has to live in this universe then might as well take all of the advantages.

    Thank you. I forgot to add to the list that of course I would be neurotypical.

    Nope, did not forget. If that is what you want then you can take that as yours.

    This is going to be cliche but I would stay the way I am although I'm so far in the closet that it would be a 3 mile walk to reach the door.

    it was bloody chilly ngl. But I made my way out. After a fashion.

    no I know i tried on my first day for hours before I realised. The closest thing is if you press on a person you want to chat withs profile you can write on there wall. It’s not private but not open unless someone else looks on that persons wall.

    But sometimes I'm just tired of being trans and all the fuss related to it, you know... It's much better and easier than it used to be, but either not complete passing or having to come out when you date someone "from the street", not another lgbt person - it's tiring. Maybs there is still some shame at work like PatrickUK said, but it's tiring regardless.

    I would definitely choose bi. I think its the best of both worlds. Each gender has its own pros and cons. Both are alot of fun though lol.

    This resonates with me when I first discovered that I might like women sexually but I was also frightened. Earlier this year, I finally admitted to myself that I’m bisexual but I know, due to my family circumstances (I’m Muslim), I can’t come out. I have to keep it a secret and don’t have anyone to confide in. The last few months especially, have been a constant grapple with my emotions, so it has crossed my mind a couple of times that it would be so much simpler if I was straight.

    I love who I am, so ultimately I wouldn't change it. But just for fun...

    Number 1 choice, I'd go bi. Open up that dating pool, expand all of my possibilities. The way things stand in real life, it isn't so much that I care about the gender of my partners...but that I honestly have no idea what to do with women in bed.
