Zero. I literally have the WORST gaydar of anybody I know, including all of my straight friends. Everyone ruthlessly makes fun of me for this.

I mean, I don't really need to have a gaydar, because I'm super, super visibly gay, so they all kind of just flock to me. So it works out. But still.

Im never really got to test this as people have told me this or that before I could even make a chance.

Apparently, I alert peoples gayders strongly, so strong one of my gay friends asked me out thinking I was gay.

Pretty decent. I've actually predicted like 4 people were gay before they even came out. Two of them were people at my school and the other two were Troye Sivan (well not necessarily before he came out but I was like "uggg i wish you were gay" and then he was so) and Connor Franta.

"Gaydar" is often homophobic and transphobic so I dont lower myself to that level.

I mean I don't really think most people consider it very homophobic (and I don't see how it could be transphobic at all) but I see where you're coming from. Personally, I don't really have a problem with it, but I don't know about anyone else.

In itself, it is not homophobic nor transphobic. However in practice, it usually is.

People are not being specific enough for it to be homophobic nor transphobic in this thread.

I am surprised you do not understand the transphobic part. It is quite obvious.

I personally don't think I'm very good at predicting who is LGBT when they haven't told me, but I also don't think I'm the worst at it.

Postby Ansem555 » Sun Jun 26, 2016 2:42 am

I came out in January nothing really changed for me, everything just kinda stayed normal.

Speaking of coming out, story time!

Spoiler: Basically, I've known I was gay since Freshman year in High School. The reason it took so long to figure out is because I basically had no romantic drive in me, I just buried myself in books until I met friends online. I got with my boyfriend (who I've happily been with for a few years now, online relationship) and never bothered to tell anyone.

Not always so though, I did try a few New Year's Eves to say "I'll make this the year I come out to my mom at least." But I never did, always wussed out on it. Not that she ever showed signs of homophobia or anyone in my family, in fact they showed a lot of support to the LGBT+ community, I just wanted to do a short ripple effect thing since I crack under any sort of pressure.

To keep it simple, I had a really terrible nightmare that was so vivid it still bothers me that basically my whole family died and I panicked. But I was so bad with spoken words, and then I remembered something: I could send a time capsule e-mail. So last year in June I typed a long thing to my mom and had it set to get to her on the day after New Year's Day, and I started mentally counting down and trying to ignore it so I wouldn't chicken out and cancel the e-mail.

Coming closer to New Years, I basically was calm, same for the day she was supposed to get it. And then she sent me a text message with the proposal from the e-mail I told her to send if she was fine with it and didn't want to just not talk about it (I hate locking people into absolutes, I always leave an out). I basically mentally panicked for the next hour and a half to my friends and my boyfriend, calmed down, and talked with her and she wanted to tell dad so she did, he came back and had a talk with me, and things basically stayed the same, and she told my little brother at some point. (FYI: The reason I never told anyone myself and let her do it is cause, again, bad with vocalizing)

And then my mom told my sister (and didn't tell me she told her at my sister's request even though I wanted to know whoever knew about it) and she planned a gay party for me (so basically my older brother and his GF, my sister's ex, and my little bro's GF and my Grandma all knew but I didn't know they did). A rainbow cake covered in my favorite color (green) icing with a pink, plastic My Little Pony in it that my sister baked herself, the gift of a Rainbow Dash plush (hate MLP, but appreciate the gesture), and a rainbow confetti cannon. We had a blast, though my poor sister panicked when I went "NOPE" to the Rainbow Dash plush when I unwrapped it, she had a nightmare the night before that I saw the whole ensemble, got up and went to my room and never came back out.

And after all that, life went on as normal, nobody acted different. My mom did ask over text when I came out (whole bad with face to face talks again) about my boyfriend... Which basically turned into the entire talk she wanted to have, but it worked in my favor of back and forth texting.


So moral of the story: It can be hard to come out, but don't stress about the after if you're accepted. Life moves on and everything will stay normal.

I have a question for the gay/lesbian people of this forum.

When you started to notice that you had attractions to the the same sex, did you originally think that you were bi instead of gay? I was talking with my bf, when we both realized that when we first felt attractions for the same sex, we both had originally thought we were bi rather than gay (Which was a hope for me, but thats a different story.).

(Sorry for the bump if this causes any trouble.)

I went from IDing as lesbian to bi, didn't even consider bi because I was uncomfortable around pretty much every guy minus a few close friends. This was in 5th/6th grade though, obviously a lot has changed since then. Not sure if my view is relevant to you though.

I had no idea those terms existed, so no I didnt.
And I kinda figured out quickly from there.

Yeah, I tried to use logic to say I was bi at first (I had a few girlfriends through my Elementary, Middle and super early High school years so I thought I was straight but then a few guys were catching my attention, especially my current boyfriend, so during early High school I tried rationalizing I was bi) but basically lacked a romantic drive because I wanted nothing to do with people and just read books all the time even when I was dating (until, again, my boyfriend who I talk to a lot). But combing through past thoughts as I was growing up and then re-rationalizing that I was just copying social norms I learned as a kid and grew up and I accepted I was gay because women didn't interest me in the slightest on closer inspection.

I had a similar situation with Ansem, except for the fact that I didn't have any girlfriends, I just had "girl crushes". I did the same thing Ansem did, though.

It was probably just to fit in...

With removing that bit in the middle, this pretty much relates to me.

I don't know if this should be here but someone said it should be so I'm just going to repost what I posted in Confessions

I've confessed to some people before on Discord so that's why the formatting is shitty
Spoiler: ...Okay
Here goes
I'm a guy(big surprise, I know)
At least
Physically, i am
I don't know about mentally
I mean
I'm sure everyone is curious to know what it's like being the opposite sex
But I doubt they think about it pretty much every night
I want to be a girl
not permanatly
I'm not trans
at least, I don't think so
But i want to know what it's like
to have all that stuff
That's why I started this "my gender is an enigma" thingy
Because I wanted people to treat me like a girl
But I didn't want to lie and say "btw I'm a girl"
I've no idea what my gender identity is anymore
I might have never know
I mean, when I was like 7 I stole some of my mums clothes and dressed up in them
She never found out
But
yeah
I still do it occasionally
Steal a bra
stuff it
put it on
look at myself in the mirror
then sneak it into the laundry basket when I'm done
and
like
for a few years
I've been obsessed with watching videos of guys turning into girls
I used to fantacise about me being in that position
I still do
And I've never felt very masculine
but I've never felt very feminine either
So
yeah
It'd be nice if people treated me like a girl
Just to sate my curiosity
But that's not going to happen

do you want to try out some new pronouns on the internet for a while, to see if it's something you might like? nobody (nobody cool, at least) will judge you if you want to explore gender more

Spoiler: I got really pissed when a guy pretty much asked me out after Humanities class yesterday. Like... I try to keep calm, but considering, you know, as I've said before, it really really annoyed me. I laughed it off but honestly mehhhh. I'm not good at responding to these things. Though I guess at least I didn't yell at him. Should've just told him I have a "boyfriend" xd

Like, I'm not at all attracted to him, or pretty much anyone so eh??? I don't think it's socially acceptable here to say "yooo I'm asexual". I mean there was another more accurate term I forgot, but either way it'd be too hard to explain. And probably unnecessary for me to explain myself anyway.
Lmao my old sig was so angry I can't even
