I wish I was straight

Unread postby idkhbtfm » 14 April 2019, 21:59

I’m a lesbian in a happy same sex high school relationship but I wish I was straight. Don’t get me wrong, I am a fierce lgbt advocate and always have been and I do not believe that there is ANYTHING wrong with loving who you love. I let no one shame me for my sexuality. But to put it simply, I wish I was straight. I want to want a husband and to have kids with a man. And it’s not that I can’t have that with a woman. I CAN have that with a woman and I want that with a woman. But for some reason I just wish that I could want a boyfriend and be excited about boys and want to kiss boys. I go to a homophobic catholic high school but that’s not the reason. Im not religious and I don’t care about peer pressure so there nothing there. It is unfair to my girlfriend whom I love so incredibly much that I wish I was straight. I don’t like men and I can’t make myself but like men but I really want to like men. The idea of doing anything with them absolutely and utterly repulses me though. I really don’t know what kind of advice I’m asking for here so really please leave anything.

That goes away with time. It's just part of how we're brought up. When I figured out I was gay I also felt horrible about not being like other people, that I'd never have kids and that I wished I could someday marry a girl. Eventually, those wants faded and gave room to real, achievable, life goals. You're still young, so don't stress too much about it!

I feel really lucky to have grown up in a country like the Netherlands where being gay was never a big deal as far back as I can remember. I never experienced anything like this when I realised I was gay at 14.

I'm certain Eryx is right, though! :hug:
