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:

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.

You are one of the most inspiring people I've ever seen. All your beliefs I agree with 110%. You believe in so much equality and are such an open-minded positive person it's contagious. I'm only 14 but I still understand, and have experienced, some of the things you talk about. I live in the south of the USA, where people are incredibly "conservative" and have very strong opinions. Not everyone is like that, but you are piratically shunned if you are not religious, if you don't play a sport, if you don't have certain qualities you're expected to have, even if you don't support the LGBT community. I used to think "gay" was an insult too, and one time in class last year I was talking to these guys about how gay couples are the cutest thing and they thought I was insane and brought up how the "Bible said it wasn't OK for 2 people of the same gender to be together" and I said "So? Who cares? If people are in love does it even matter what the Bible thinks?"...big mistake. They absolutely flipped. They got other guys involved in the conversation and it was just horrible because I felt so bad for brushing the Bible aside like it didn't mean anything. Today, I consider myself an atheist. I don't believe in the Bible, but I am still open-minded to the possibility of there being an afterlife. 
What is your opinion on religion, Gods, and the Bible?
