When I was a kid
I thought that ‘gay’ was just an insult
And as a result
I cried when a big kid called me it.

When I was a tween
My teacher said she was worried about two guys
Who always locked eyes
And I didn’t get why she was wrong to say it.

When I was a teen
I went on the internet and found out it all
When I started to fall
For both boys and girls and I didn’t get why.

When I was a teen
I made out with a girl from my school
It was pretty cool
But I was too scared to tell anyone.

When I’m an adult
I’m gonna tell my kids that it’s okay
To be bi or trans or gay
Or any other orientation
Because, well, it is.

I was born into a stereotypical southern baptist family, where if you did anything wrong you'd burn in hell for eternity, so it took a long time for me to admit to myself I had a romantic interest in girls rather than boys. I was lucky to have a wonderful mother who accepted me as I am, since so many aren't near as fortunate. As of now, I'm happily engaged to my high school sweetheart, and we've been together for almost five years now. :heart: I can't tell you how happy I was to read this, since so many people never stop to question the horrible things people do to each other, simply because of who they love. I hope your words  will continue to inspire others the way it has inspired me.

Congratulations on your enagement! I'm a lebian too, and I'm still struggling with the idea of coming out - can I ask how you told your family? I just have no idea where to start. 

Thank you very much for the lovely comment :hug:

Sorry for the late reply, I've been having computer issues lately. ^^; Well honestly, my mother was more intuitive than I had originally realized, and she asked me one day if my best friend at the time (my now fiance) was more than just a friend. I was a little afraid to answer, even though she's always told me she loves me no matter what, but we'd never discussed the possibility of me being gay or bi. I ended up admitting to her we were dating, and she smiled. Her exact words were, "You don't have to be afraid to tell me things like that. You're my daughter, and I'll always love and support you, because that's what every mother should do for their child. I don't care who you're with, as long as they make you happy, I'm happy." I really am lucky, since that almost never happens for people coming out, but for me it did. I can't promise things will work out so well for you, but as long as you find that special someone out, then isn't your happiness all that should matter to them? Even if things go south, don't let anyone tell you its wrong, because true love can never be wrong. Who knows? Maybe things might turn out well for you too. Either way, I wish you the best of luck! :)

I love this. I live in a catholic family and my parents are serious homophobes. I'm straight, but I am 1000000000000% supportive of gay marriage. I wasn't always like this though. I really thought being gay was an insult, and I cried when someone thought I was gay for my female best friend. I love your writing, keep it up friend.
