A member of the majority using the possessive about any member of a minority is always, ALWAYS a social faux pas.

This is not an article about bisexual, pansexual, or women whose sexuality comes at a particular perpendicular slant. This is an article about straight girls who are down to fuck girls and the lesbians who love flipping them.
While most of my friends don't give a hoot about my sexual preferences, what many don't realize is that unless I out myself, I'm going to be assumed to be straight.
unpopular opinion
Shockingly, people are upset that I'm not the gay best friend of their dreams.
I’m gay, not a sexual deviant. Explaining my sex life is getting exhausting.
Growing up to be a lesbian seemed like something that just didn't happen to regular people, like growing up to be a fairy princess.
Gay magazine The Advocate did a write-up of the 15 gayest cities in America, and people are piiiissed -- mostly because its criteria rely on a very specific stereotype of LGBT person. Seriously, I refuse to believe the Whole Foods in Tacoma, Washington makes it a gay mecca.
I tend to go for pretty-ish guys who dress nicely and, inevitably, possess characteristics considered effeminate by my friends.

The world was a hostile, scary place because not only could you be murdered by those whom you trusted most, there would be those who would celebrate such a thing.

Last week, Josh Weed came out as gay on his blog. This isn’t really a big deal on the Internet, except for these facts: Josh is a Mormon. And he’s married to a woman.

We’re right in the middle of Pride Month, and just in time, American Apparel has announced a new Partnership with GLAAD, AND introduced their first transgendered model.

What Kurek’s story illustrates is that so much of the fear, hatred, and bigotry in this world comes from a place of lack of knowledge and exposure, paired with bigoted teachings to reinforce divides between social groups.
It was like the clouds parted and delivered directly to me my own personal dykey softball coach angel to help guide my misguided ass through all the pain and confusion and awfulness of being young and gay.
When another story like that of Kenneth Weishuhn comes like bullet spray toward my entire being I can't help but think -- it doesn't always get better.

Things I expected from LGBTQ night at our local hockey game: rainbows, ice fights, an LGBTQ-inclusive Kiss Cam. Things I didn't expect: strangers calling me a dyke.
No, YOU'RE crying about LGBT acceptance in professional sports!
Quick! Pop quiz! What percentage of the American population identifies as gay or lesbian? If you're like the average American, you're probably WAY overestimating.
coming out
I’m really looking forward to the day when I can imagine inducting a celeb into the LGBT Club without having a giant freakout about it.
After a string of LGBT teen suicides in Anoka, Minnesota, a gay youth group tried to start the healing process by marching in the annual Halloween parade. No dice.
To me, studies like these smack of an insidious “gotcha!” mentality. If we can spot Teh Gays at a glance, after all, we can make sure they don’t end up sneaking into our hospitals, church groups or our elementary schools.
Because this post slams athletes who pull that crap and no one likes a hypocrite.
