If I’m being completely honest, I’m not entirely 100% straight.
What a shocker! Some of you may sarcastically say, but I’ve only just really been completely 100% with myself about it, and to my family, today and yesterday.
For the most part, I’m attracted to men. That includes trans men (trans men are men, people!) Straight, bisexual, pansexual etc. it doesn’t matter to me. If you’re a nice guy (regardless if you were born male or not) and attraction was there (if I was a single gal, of course!) then great.
Also, while I’m not usually attracted to women, I’d be lying if I said I’ve never been attracted to a woman on my life. I’ve felt attracted to men, women, non-binary persons etc. of multiple different sexual identities.
I know this might not seem like a big deal to some, but for me this is a huge deal. I struggled with my sexuality since being a kid. So to be completely open and honest, especially with my nearest and dearest, feels like a weight’s been lifted off me.
Obviously there’s certain people I know that I can’t tell, because it wouldn’t be taken too kindly. But it’s none of their business anyway, so that doesn’t bother me.
My boyfriend knew already, but last night was the first time I was completely honest with him, no holds barred. He was brilliant and I love him dearly for that.
As well, my parents were awesome and just want me to be happy. My mum said “Yeah, I already knew.” when I told her. Honestly, there’s nothing I can get past that woman! 😂
While my having an attraction to someone, regardless of their sexuality and to a certain extent, gender, some may say, “Oh, you’re pansexual then. Or you’re this/that…” I just see it as I’m just me. Straight with a few exceptions, pan, bi, whatever you want to call it. I don’t mind.
I’m just me. I can’t help who I am and I’m not going to apologise for it either. Love is love 😊
So I suppose I’ve “come out” in a way. I’m glad. It’s awful stuffy in those closets!!
All my love,
