    Meh...

    Growing up I always had a cousin named Suzanne who was a lesbian. She was the closest thing I had to a sister when I was younger, and she was an amazing role model about how far people in the GLBT community can persevere over hatred and do well for themselves. She was incredibly sweet.

    I found out today she passed away from brain cancer at the age of 32. :S Aside from the obvious grieving going on, I also remain as the only gay person left in a family of conservative christians. Somewhat of a double-whammy, I suppose.

    Not here to bring up drama, though. I have good news, too. ^^;; After speaking with my boyfriend, I've realized what I want to do - in one year, I think I may move away to Finland. I can't afford college, but once I become a citizen university is free. I've also always wanted to get away from America and learn what it's like in other cultures and areas, especially places in Europe. I need to save up for the flight over and also learn Finnish, but my boyfriend is helping me with that. He said I'm more than welcome to live with him until I get on my feet there, so I have to admit I'm incredibly excited. I've always wanted to go to Europe, so this opportunity is amazing. :3 Don't know if I'll be able to go through with it right away, but oh well... It's a good plan, at least. Lol.

    BLABO, some people are just jerks. With luck, he'll get a hefty amount of infractions for harassment.

    @irishdax - Well, there's no knowing until you try. (; Good luck with the date. I have a feeling everything will go wonderfully for you!

    @ice wolf- thank you very much. ^^ I'm lucky to have a strong family, where we're each getting each other through it. That's sweet of you to offer.

    @Dawn Hero, sorry to hear about your cousin. But Finland sounds fun! There seems to be a lot of positives for you if you go. Hope it works out.

    I'd like to join. I was heavily involved in the shiny lovers clubs a few years back. Some of my friends from there are here.

    Yesterday, without intending to do so, I posted a cruel remark about one of those people. I thought he'd acted as if he'd had a crush on me in the past, and I said so. But I had no idea at the time that he had come out as gay.

    So now I feel terrible. I'd take back the comment if I could, but words once released are free forever.

    So I'd like to join here, to support and be supported. My two best friends are agay couple who have been together for over 17 years, and they are better to me than any family could ever be.

    I'm ashamed for embarrassing a former friend and losing that friend forever. I hope he reads this and reopens communications, but I doubt he will.

    So help me, please, so that I can stop myself from hurting anyone else like that again.

    May I join?

    Then again, I recently found out that apparently not everyone's parents are as intuitive as mine. And there still might be a chance that my dad doesn't know (although I'd be shocked if he hasn't started to suspect it by now...).

    Apparently, my mom recently told my cousin that I'm lesbian.. I kind of don't like that she just told her without asking me if it was okay first. I don't care that my cousin knows, but... I guess I kind of just wanted to be the one to tell her myself if it ever came up. My cousin still isn't fully convinced that I am, which is something I always fear when I'm coming out to people. -.-

    DH, I hop you have an amazing time in Finland when you go! I, too, long to travel outside of the US and experience life in other areas. After seeing many of the horrors of our society, I hope to find something better out there.

    I've heard eastern and northeastern European languages are difficult to learn, so I wish you luck in your studies! You're very lucky. I've always wanted to learn Japanese or Malagasy :P

    It sounds like you have a solid plan that should get you through your studies. I hope you find what you're looking for in Finland!

    I hope things work out. I personally don't ever wish to permanently move away from America. But seeing other cultures is something I will definitely do one day. I guess that's just the patriotism within me, but I hope everything goes well for you and your BF!

    Thank you, Speed Suicune, you're too kind.

    Good luck in Japanese and Malagasy. :P And thank you very much for your well wishes. I've actually decided it would be best to post-pone my moving there until after I finish four years of university, so that way I'll really have a chance to get to know people better here and say good-bye more appropriately. Besides, 20's a much better age to leave than 18, I think. I feel I'd be more prepared for the world. :] Hahah.

    EDIT: Thanks, RulerOfUnova! You posted as I was typing this out. xD Yeah, I'll probably come back eventually... But I'd still love to move away for a couple decades or something hahah. Patriotism ftw.

    Anyways, I know this probably has gotten brought up a lot, but I haven't seen it mentioned lately and I'm curious as to what people think of it. Plus, this thread seems a bit... Inactive... So a new conversation topic would be nice.

    Do you feel that homosexuality is a choice, or are you born that way?

    For supporters who aren't GLBT, still feel free to answer the question after thinking about it. I'm sure it's been brought up a million and a half times by now, but I'm curious. I never once felt like I had a choice in being bisexual - I fought it as much as I could until I just couldn't fight anymore. I had assumed it was obvious to everyone that it was never a choice, but at my local university when I had told a homophobic preacher screaming outside our school that being gay wasn't a choice a fellow gay student walked up and yelled that it actually was. Ever since I've been curious how many other people feel this way.

    @Icewolf... I think that I am not gay by choice, but I don't want to be straight ^_^
    Isn't there scientific proof that it's genetic?

    There have been studies, but they aren't conclusive.

    I think genetic is too strong, too specific a term. There probably isn't just one reason for any kind of sexuality, and each cause more than likely has different degrees of strength. That's probably why different people might feel different levels of attraction; Why bisexuals might prefer one sex more than the other but still like both; why gay men either never question their feelings or they might have a moment where there's some serious confusion.

    I don't think its safe to say any one thing defines sexuality. Its probably a mix of biological and environmental factors.

    Well, I'd like to join. I'm gay, but not out. I don't know what else to say now :S

    Do you feel that homosexuality is a choice, or are you born that way?
    I definitely don't think it is. People do get confused, as I've seen people say that they like the opposite sex so they chose to be straight, which really isn't choosing. Another thing people confuse choosing with is acting upon your feelings. People think by accepting that you're gay/coming out is choosing. As for myself, I didn't choose. I just..am gay I suppose. I never sat down, and decided between gay and straight; I just knew which I was, which is probably the case with most people.

    Anyway, why would you choose to be gay when it's so difficult?

    It in itself isn't the hard part, it's the image that we get that's difficult. If people would learn to be more accepting then the world would be a much better place.

    Other than that I have nothing to say......but hello!

    Do you feel that homosexuality is a choice, or are you born that way?
    It's simply my belief that you are born that way. A straight man can't force himself on a gay man and make himself gay; and a gay man can't force himself on a woman and make himself straight. You're just born that way, and you can't force it away or pray it away either. It does not change.

    Anyway, that's my responce to the question. I'm kind of confused about what I am, lesbian or bisexual... I mean, only sometimes are men attractive to me, but it seems like I prefer women. I hear bisexuals, even though they like both genders, usually lean on one gender they prefer. Is this true?

    I'm just 13, so I don't want to become sure of anything.
    Oh, I'm not really here anymore.
    Sorry.

    Same problem here... Except since I'm a guy, it's the other way around.

    No, no, no. I know that for myself it is not, has never been, and will never be a choice. I tried to date girls but I never felt any real attraction to them. I knew from the time I hit puberty when I was about 12 that I liked boys, and here I am 10 years later living pretty happily with the most wonderful guy in the world. Never once in those 10 years have I been attracted to a single woman.

    Exactly. I've seen some people who argue that it's a choice say that they like the opposite sex, and then decided to be straight, which isn't choosing at all.

    Anyway, I have a 'crush' on a guy in school, and I want to hint it to him, or try and find out if he's gay or not (without straight up asking him >.>). Any tips? He's never really shown many signs of being gay, but he hasn't shown any signs of being straight either, unlike most guys our age :S

    There is some evidence that suggests in a family with multiple males children (2+), the chances that the younger children are gay are even higher. It's on Youtube, something about what is gay or gayness in science

    I heard of that before. I think it only apply to gay males, but I can't be sure.

    I have two older brothers, so it does have some basis.
