    My highschool was pretty okay, i was not out as Bi. But where i live in texas, most people are accepting more or less. We have a few gay, bi guys, a couple lesbians and 1 trans. And they werent ever publically made fun of or anything like that publically.

    I feel like the south, and places like texas get a bad re. But thats usually from people who haven't been here haha

    Wow, only one homeschooled person? If the poll were still open, I would've been the second :slight_smile:

    Can't comment on high school because I'm home schooled, but I imagine it probably would've been difficult for me. I doubt I would've come out at high school, though, so maybe that would've made things different.

    Absolute hell.

    Was bullied and called a you know what before I even knew I was gay, actually that started even before high school, There were probably 4 days a year when I when I wasn't called a fag and I remembered those days, I wasn't out or anything but they could sense it before I even knew for sure myself that I was.

    Every day, the entire day, no wonder I didn't do well in academics, I loved weekends as I could do my work in peace. Hey faggot became my defacto name, used more than my real name.

    Just the way it was for me and it's affected me to this day.

    Some appear to have it good, even out and all that, others not.

    I had a love/hate relation with my government class but other than that, it was pretty smooth.

    I feel like it was wasted.

    I loved my last year of highschool (actually, the last half of my last year of highschool) and I think that if I had figured myself out earlier, I would have been able to enjoy the other four. I was a mess and I only just got out of it.

    High school was okay for me, but the first two years of primary school were hell.

    Wasn't my favourite place to be for sure, but it was ok, I guess.

    Uh, junior high was an awful, awkward period. I went to a religious private school with strict nuns policing everything. I didn't have friends but I used to hang out with a rather silly girl because I was the only one who could stand her company and she was the only one who actually liked me. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I was skinny, wearing a scoliosis brace, with baggy clothes and oily hair. Also I was sickly, and many times didn't go to school. Disaster. And I had my first terrifying moments of questioning my sexuality after crushing on a (straight) female classmate.
    Senior high was better. I changed school, gained some weight, started having more confidence, had my personal small revolutions - which, whether right or wrong, helped me evolve. I got in touch with more radical political ideas, met new people, had my first boyfriend... Still, it was awkward from time to time, I still was self-conscious, but I felt alive. :slight_smile:

    It was probably the worst time of my life. I've been out of that hellhole for 2 years, but whenever I think about that phase I have an anxiety attack. I blame myself and the people I've met (and gave permission to make me feel like shit) for everything that's happened. And it doesn't help when I express those feelings to my colleagues and they tell me I am exaggerating.
