Oy Vey, I'm Jewish and Gay

Warren3125's picture

Well, Where do I start? I'm 15, Gay, a Jew in a house of Baptists, a Liberal living in the Conservative world, and I'm the only one of the 4 gay kids I know who seem to struggle. They're so free and boundless, running around with their boyfriends and girlfriends without a care in the world, while I stay alone, desperate for someone to notice me, and bear the burdens of being a complete outsider from the southern society which surrounds me. I think I'm a decent human being, I don't hurt people, I like to laugh, I'm nice, but is that enough? Is there something I'm missing that they seem to have? Is it my weight? My skin? My hair, my eyes, my legs?? Somebody please tell me so that I can find someone to love me. Or do I have to suffer more loneliness than I already have? As if that isn't enough I have to drag myself through school, working my ass off to get scholarships, semi-outed, constantly being harassed, having words spat at me, hell actually being spat on. I swear I feel that one day somebody is going to beat the crap out of me, just for being gay. My whole universe is collapsing before my very eyes. My family's been to hell and back, I've lost so many friends because I'm gay, people constantly shove Christian philosophy down my throat, only for me to reject it and subject myself to disgraceful jokes about the Holocaust, or how "Jews are cheap, worthless, and deserved what they got from Hitler", a statement which I've heard too many a time. But, I guess I'm not alone, and I'm hoping this Oasis place will help, I'm not much of a blogger type if you will. But, it's worth a shot.

Shalom,
Warren

Dude, what the hell, people really say that stuff to you?

That's horrible. There's definitely none of that on here :)

Welcome! We're glad to have you! I have a friend who's also Jewish and gay. Love that kid :) <3

Anyway,

WELCOME! This is Oasis, I hope you stay and have a good time. I know I do.
And, yeah, school sucks, I've had plenty of that to deal with, but oh my gosh, I've only had moderate homophobia to deal with. People actually say that?
Well, I've had a few friends that have distanced themselves, and several more close ones that I think would care if they knew...
But all that, and anti-Semitism on top? Wow, I've lost a few faith points in humanity.
ANYWAY, hope you end up with friends who don't care about the things that don't matter, and have a good time while here!

goodness, thats awfulness the the tneth degree. i wouldve punched someon in the face for saying anything about the holocaust...

i think you should stick around oasis. its a good place here :)

welcome btw haha sorry for the angry rant that lives up there

"A loving man and woman in a committed relationship can marry. Dogs, no matter what their relationship, are not allowed to marry. How should society treat gays and lesbians in committed relationships? As dogs or as humans?"

I've lost tons of friends because I'm gay.(all male) people always make fun of me for it and I just try to annoy it. and next time someone says something like that about the holocaust,you had better punch them right in the face. oh, and welcome to oasis.

Welcome to Oasis, my friend.

Welcome to Oasis, my friend.

I'm so sick of people making Holocaust jokes. That happened over 60 years ago. Can we please move on? And who the hell decided to start these ridiculous Jew jokes? They're really not that funny.

People suck.

Wow. The most crap I've ever

Wow. The most crap I've ever gotten for being Jewish (which, whether or not I am now is debatable, but I was as a kid.) was being told that I couldn't be because I'm "black". I was about 10 at the time, and I -flipped out- and started screaming at the kid... I don't remember what I did or what I said, but the adults there had to calm me down.

But yeah, wow. That's terrible. There's some anti-semitism where I live, but people are generally less open about being hateful bigots up here. It's hard for me to believe that there's any place where talking about the Holocaust like that is even remotely acceptable. That's gross. I really am sorry that you have to put up with that. :[

As far as finding somebody to date goes, just because you're still single does not mean there's anything wrong with you. I'm 18 and going into college soon, and with almost zero relationship experience... I used to think I must be flawed in some way and that I was the only person not seeing it, but I'm not any more flawed than any other person my age. It took me until recently to figure that out... Just because you can't find someone now doesn't mean that you never will. So hang in there.
