i don't know. i'm attracted to guys. i don't know why. i've tried so hard to be straight but no. i'm still gay. it hurts because when my friends insult gay people, i have to play along and pretend to not get offended. i don't think i'll ever say this to someone. i don't know anymore.
I'm at the age where my sexuality is still a phase, and only a silly phase. I supposedly know nothing about myself or the world. Whenever bisexuality is brought up in my family, there's eye rolling, and mentions of therapy. Those constant comments have made me question my sexuality even more. I suppose I'm scared to tell my family because I know the reactions would be mixed. I'm scared my friends would assume I have a crush on them. It's come to a point where I'm still denying my sexuality. I constantly question myself. "It's just a phase."
I haven't come out because I'm a dance teacher and I'm afraid my boss and my students' parents might confuse my being homosexual with the idea that that makes me a pedophile too. (It doesn't). I've never seen a problem with out male homosexual dance teachers, but a woman? Patriarchy exists and I don't feel safe.
