    I'm totally supportive of the LGBT community, I even have a gay friend. However I think that... [insert homophobic/transphobic comment]

    Lol this is something that I myself said before I realized my own sexuality.

    Friend: I'm Bi.
    Me: You're kidding.

    Like, I honestly sort of thought they were kidding (even though I don't know why someone would kid about something like that.) I was in eighth grade at the time and very sheltered. Sexuality was a very foreign topic for me then. So somebody saying to me "I'm gay/bi/etc" was essentially like saying to me "I'm a Christmas elf." I'd just never really... Encountered it. Or noticed it, I guess. It never crossed my mind. I didn't really even know that it was possible. (Because I'd never had any sort of ...sexual attraction to people myself at the time; puberty hit late) Anyways I didn't even know how to react. Still makes me laugh.

    So does that count? Even though I'm not exactly straight? Lol.

    "It's okay: I won't judge you. It's the 21st century!"

    I know their intentions are well, but this just pisses me off. By saying that I feel like you're implying that you are judging me internally.

    Yeah, I've had that one said to me too. "It's ok, we accept you. It's your choice after all". :rolle:


    Add on "Maybe it's a phase, how long have you been like this?". :rolle:

    You: *accidentaly touches straight friend*
    Friend: are you coming on to me?

    Dad: you're bisexual so you're gay right
    Me: that's not how LGBTQ works dad

    Me: I don't like how that girl looks
    Dad: but I thought you liked everyone

    Me: *looks like a guy*
    Mom: *in denial* my DAUGHTER. SHE likes this shirt. SHE wants to know how much it is. Yes, it's for HER party.
    Me: *sigh and says in small voice* my son, he likes, he wants, his party....

    Friend: "I totally support gay people but I don't like it when they're around me because then I feel really uncomfortable." (She knew I'm gay. To which I was tempted to reply 'yeah, straight people make me uncomfortable, too.' I didn't.)

    Sister: "I think it's fine if other people are gay, but you're not allowed to be gay because then you'd get bullied." (Wut.)

    Sister, in every argument ever: "At least I'm not a leessbiiaann!"

    "But how does one even find out that they're a lesbian?" a friend asked me recently.

    This one isn't that bad, but more so it just tickled me. The way they asked made it sounds like you get an invitation or something. :grin: "Surprise, you're a lesbian".


    Also from the same friend, "You're like the only gay person I know!"

    Um...yay? :lol: I doubt that anyway, I'm probably the only gay person that he knows of the fact they're gay.

    ---------- Post added 31st Dec 2016 at 10:23 PM ----------

    That was probably worded badly. *I'm probably the only person who is gay, that he knows is gay, but he probably knows other gay people without realising.
