The bullshit of Sexuality

Im not really gay. Nor am I straight. Nor am I bisexual. All that to me is bullshit. Sexual Identity, that is what it is, sexual identity, not Your identity.

Queer culture gets to me sometimes because it seems like there is a certain rhetoric your supposed to buy into. You are born gay. You have to accept yourself. Be proud. Put up the good fight.

There is no problem with that, until being gay becomes who you are in its entirety. When every relationship you have is strained because of the weight of your sexuality. Its easy to play that role and loose other aspects of yourself.

Hmmm...

I agree with both previous comments.

It's better to be hated for what you are, than to be loved for what you are not.
