I still dont understand why people think being gay, lesbian, transgendered or any different sexual orientation than heterosexuality is a choice or life style. Being gay for me means firstly I have to convince my family to accept my sexuality, have to come out which could possibly lead to a lot of conflicts, stress, heartbroken, verbal insults, homelessness and/or ignorance from my OWN FAMILY, where is supposed to be a safe place for me to come back anytime I get hurt. Being gay means I have to also come out to my friends and worry that; whether they would accept me, think I’m a freak, treat me differently or I could even lose my friendships. Being gay means I can’t show or express my true sexuality all the time, in every places because I could possibly get discriminated or bullied at school, university, job interview or workplace.
Having a gay relationship means there is a chance I could get yelled at in public “gross”, “fagot”, “weak” or any hurtful words people can think of just because I hold my boyfriend’s hand. I could even get attacked by someone too. So if It is a choice, why do I have to choose this disadvantaged option, a vulnerable being by society? Why don’t I choose to be the same as majority? It is because there is no choice and I just want to be honest to myself and to everyone that I care and love.
