Are you gay? Then once you're gay, it's like..Are you feminine? then once you're feminine, it's like are you a slut? then once you're a slut, it's like.. Do you have aids? Then once you have aids, it's like.. oh never mind.
That's just a thought I had that went on for a while inmy head so I decided to let it out. But my main point here is to express the layer upon layer of presure that I experience on a daily basis. Even after coming out I still feel an immense amount of social restrictions on me being from both the gay and straight community to be a certain way to fit a certain mold.
Trust me it is confusing, it is a challenge, it is annoying, & it makes it that much more difficult for me to just do what I want at the end of the day without thinking twice. I know that I am usually a strong like willed person etc and like all for being yourself and self expression but honestly I'm 17 & outside opinion/perception still probably has more of an affect on my development than it should.
I know I can't let these social norms go too far into my core because it'll make me miserable but sometimes it's like existing outside of or in between them can become pretty miserable too.
