The true realization of the LGBTQ movement is that you can love whomever and the rest of us DON'T CARE.

It's a beautiful love story, but you being gay doesn't matter in it. Love whomever you love. No one's gonna stop you but you.

Huh. I had no idea I was gay until I fell in love with a girl.

ftfa: ' I knew straight away I was in love with this girl, and had been for a long time.  We first met at work a few years prior, and it's safe to say we didn't exactly click right away. She thought I was pretty but a little too sassy, plus her English was still developing...'

>Lol'd @ last part- her English was poor but she knew sassy when she saw it !

An unhinged jaw would probably be a good attention-getter at a pick-up bar on a Saturday night.

And useful for disposing of 'mistakes' you took home at closing time.

NO. You made your choice. You must stick with it.

LGBTQ+ community! ATTACK!!!!

Esther is hot.  Maybe we are all just closeted Esthersexuals.

Let me guess. Red Swingline? The curves on those and the way they punch the staple through the paper....oof! Everyone wants my Red Swingline but they can't have her. She's mine.

Actually, only a seeming lack of humor. Geez. Seriously? Did you think I was even remotely serious?

I'll break it down for you. It was (supposed to be) funny because you don't "make your choice". You are whatever you are. The second bit is the LGBTQ+ community simply doesn't attack. *Sigh*.

I was responding to the idea that we all suffer from some sort of groupthink or hive mind.  If you say that was not your intention I guess I'll have to accept that.

Diogenes: I was responding to the idea that we all suffer from some sort of groupthink or hive mind.


My intent was to poke fun at that very notion.

Even if someone who was happily gay for years suddenly fell in love and became straight, it's preposterous to think anyone would be upset by that. It's just something that happened. There's no malice. And besides, anyone who can find love in this world needs to be celebrated. Full stop.

But, you and I know that there are "teams" out there. And the joke was supposed to be you can't "change" teams without consequences. That there are consequences is bizarre and ridiculous. But that's also funny in an exceedingly stupid and sad way.

ANYWAY....... LGBTQ stuff is still very touchy. And I'm sorry that I teed you off. I've already gotten biatch slapped on fark for pulling on that thread once before, justifiably (the powers-that-be were right, I was wrong). And that's okay. I need to stay away from that whole thing, I guess. I'll just save up my material for future generations who will hopefully think its funny because its absurdly ridiculous in a more enlightened future.

I have a nephew who seems ... undecided.

We know a young man via our worship community whom I will call Ben. About two years ago, we learned Ben would not be able to have Christmas with his own family. Ben is a great kid: solid faith, honest, compassionate, hard-worker, respectful, and more. Plus, he came out in high school.

So, I told my kids to invite Ben to Christmas with our extended family so we could introduce Ben to my nephew. My kids replied "That won't work. Ben's straight now and has a girlfriend."

Shocked, I blurted out "What! How the hell does that happen?"

Well *I* thought it was hilarious.

I don't understand this stuff, but thank goodness it is not my problem. I just swing one way. Do whatever the hell you want. No, I don't want to hear about it.

For most people who they want to fool around while young is different from who they want settle down.  For some people that difference is more drastic than others.

Can't find that comic with the lesbians eventually running off with men, but the same thing can go the other direction.

Not sure why humanity has such a problem with accepting bisexuality in either sex, frankly.


Or feels it has to box people into a single, unchanging category.

Kind of hypocritical to tell us about how you swing while complaining others don't keep it to themselves, isn't it?

Much like you can fark someone you actively dislike, you can fall in love with someone you don't ever want to fark. Just ask my wife.

Saying he is bisexual is just simpler than constantly having to explain that in the past he was into men and now he's into Esther, who's a woman. We probably don't care that much as to be in need of the details.

I also don't get why people have such a strong urge to try and avoid the term bisexual. Since being heterosexual is okay, and being homosexual is okay, then surely being bisexual is also okay.

Seven months into the relationship, he is absolutely giddy, it would be interesting know how he feels after seven years.

LOL Are you that desperate to criticize me? I was commenting that I wasn't the least bit bisexual, since it's the subject of the thread.

And keep your farking sex life to yourself, Romeo. Weirdo.

Tfa was someone saying they thought they swung one way but found out they were wrong.

Your post was complaining that they told you how they swung, but you simultaneously told us how you swung.

That's hypocritical. Likely bigoted too. It's ok for you to say you aren't bi but wrong for them to say they are bi or switched teams? I call shenanigans on that.
