What Will Others Think? Does it Matter?

by | Nov 15, 2007 | Sex, Sexuality & Pregnancy

This is an article for anyone who is unsure about their sexuality or are worried about what others will think about them if they were to tell the truth regarding their sexuality.

Everyone’s tastes are different and you cannot change yours! Some people realize that they are gay from a young age but others do not realize until later in life so its not abnormal to be unsure about your sexuality while you are a teen. Perhaps you have strong feelings one way or another? Or, perhaps you like both males and females? A girl who has been my friend since we started primary school together recently admitted to me that she was bisexual. She was unsure as to how I would react as others had criticized her. But I did not understand why, as through my eyes she was still, and always would be Rebecca.

It’s what’s on the inside that truly counts and perhaps you might think that if you hide your sexuality, that you will gain acceptance, but what about happiness? You do not want to lose your true self! Some people take longer than others in realizing their sexuality but if you do decide that you are gay or bisexual, remember that you are still the same person as before!

In case anyone is wondering, I am straight, however I do know many people who are bisexual or gay and I do not see them any different as I previously did. The most important thing to remember is to stay true to yourself. Being gay does not make you a bad person! It just makes you extra special, and anyone who cannot see that is probably not worth your time anyway! I’m not saying it will be easy as eating a pie because it won’t, but if you understand that you remain the same then others will catch on. Do not be worried, afraid or embarrassed about what other people will say. If you accept yourself, others will too.

You do not change just because you realise your sexuality.
