So, I was discussing with some douchebags that thought it was funny to use gay as an insult. After some minutes, I knew I was losing my time and ended the conversation. For context, I'm Bisexual. You can easily know that cause of my profile picture (The Bisexual flag) but, getting out of the closet wasn't really easily. I live in Mexico, an, really homophobic country. Despite we have all our rights, a lot of people in the country are really homophobic, using a lot of insults like "maricon" or "mariposon" (Really, really homophobic terms here in Mexico). To add more, my family is Christian, and I was in a Christian school... (I'm now Atheist) So, accepting my sexuality was pretty difficult. My family is also pretty homophobic, and taught me that any type of affecting between people that aren't heterosexual was bad. I could never watch anything related to LGBT+ and every time my family talked about it, they said a lot of horrible stuff. There is actually one day that my grandma got really angry cause she saw two lesbians kissing. So... for a lot of time, I tried to hide my feelings for men, cause I was scared of what people around me will said. That, combined with more stuff, make me fell in some horrible mental stuff, but, well, I don't wanna talk about that. But, after some time, my mom accepted my sexuality, I met more people of the community and some of my heterosexual friends accepted my sexuality. My family isn't pretty receptive with that... But, at least my mom accepts me like I'm. So, well, that is my history. So, I wanna hear your opinion and maybe your histories. What do you think about all the hate that a lot people has for people that are part of the community LGBT+? Had you pass for similar experiences?
