Sadly, we still live in a world where, to many, being gay is an abnormality. That is why many gay peeps feel the need to make coming-out a big announcement. I look forward to the day when everyone is used to and accepting of other people's choices, and when gay peeps no longer feel the need to "come out of the closet".

What i'm saying is: yes, "I'm gay" announcements are annoying, but the people who have a problem with gays are even more annoying. And thankfully, we have no one like that on the forum.

So, congrats machinaeFreak. I don't care that you're gay, but I'm happy for you. Now, if you were an esper, alien or time-traveller...

It's an open board. People can post whatever the fuck they want in according with the rules of the General Board.    ;)

I don't think the issue was whether he can or can't, more like if it's necessary or not. I'd say I have to agree with just about everything Lysix said, however, at the same time I understand how something like this could be difficult to talk about and sometimes it's nice to just get something off your chest in the form of a forum post. This forum is generally very accepting and it's one of the reasons I like it here so much, and the most important thing is making sure machinaeFREAK knows nobody here is going to think differently of him because of his lifestyle; the same goes for anyone here. The MaSu forum welcomes everyone, so we should all just hug and be happy. :)
Very true, so it's cool to post that as well :D JUST POAST MOAR DAMNIT


MachinaeFREAK, why delete this thread when you're afraid someone will find out, but in the meanwhile this is about you coming out..

Lol. I see what you did there.

And not to hijack your thread or steal your thunder, but I'm gay too. I'm also never going to conform to the gay stereotype, either. I do understand why some people who come out change their behavior, though. Since coming out to my friends, I do act differently when I'm with them than I did before they knew. However, this is not because I feel obligated to act this way. The truth is I was suppressing part of my natural personality out of fear before coming out. I don't really have many people I would truly call friends, and the fear of losing them overwhelmed me for a long time. Then one day I realized that if they really did have a problem with it, I was wrong to count them among my friends.

I'm not out to my family yet, but I want to come out to them. Friends were easy to come out to; you choose your friends, and I chose people who accept me for who I am. Family is a different story. My dad's entire side of the family are devout Catholics. I have a cousin who still isn't allowed to bring his husband (technically his "domestic partner", since same-sex marriage is illegal in this state) of three years to any family gatherings. I haven't seen him in four years, and I always attend Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I digress. This probably isn't the place to discuss the issues of coming out to friends and family. When I initially started typing, I just meant to say that you're not alone, machinaeFREAK.

Worst thing about those coming outs is that if so many nice guys are homosexual, calling someone a gay/fag is not that much offensive anymore.

Well, start insulting each other as heterosexuals. Over here, we've been doing that for years.
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

I'm gay.

EDIT: removed the angry parts as some people can be insulted by it.

I hope everyone's ok with it, and that I can get some support around here.
Also mild jokes are acceptable, racist/harsh ones aren't.

Dude, I'm way late to this party.. but I've been "Out"  to the forum here since before MaSU had an album deal..

If you need to talk to me I'm but an IM away ok?

although I'm bi, not gay.

Not trying to brag about myself or belittle the OP, mind you.  Just saying that I've known for years you guys are cool.

Coolness is mandatory.
