This is a very honest question and I appreciate you asking.
I guess I am a homosexual and while it is something that I really struggle with, I felt like I needed to answer this question. Bear with me, but here
I am a female and I've always been a tom boy. I grew up in a normal home, but just always was into sports, nature, being active, using tools, etc.
Spent a lot of my childhood at my brother's sporting events, holding my own with all the little brothers, and eventually my time was consumed with my
own sporting events. I guess I would be considered androgynous. I don't try to dress like a guy, but I just happen to be most comfortable in jeans
and a tee shirt. I always had long hair, but I cut it all really short when I went to college. Honestly, that felt amazing and I like it better that
way, but I miss my long hair. Also, I miss my parents not telling me how much they dislike my hair short, but that's how it goes. Anyway. I can't
speak for everyone, but I really just feel more comfortable in more casual clothes. More girly clothes are fine and all, but they make me physically
uncomfortable a lot of the time. I'd rather run around in cut off shorts and a t shirt, not having a care in the world, than constantly pulling at my
shirt and just feeling physically uneasy. Oh and I love to do my makeup and make sure my hair is just right and everything, but I've gotten to the
point where I am fine going without. I don't ever want to be a dude, but I am a little jealous of their ability to gain muscle so easily. I'm very
small (5'1"), so I push myself to make up for my size in speed, strength, and knowledge. I guess I don't exactly know what I'm trying to say here,
but I don't at all try to be like a guy. I just act in ways that are most comfortable for me and that's that. I have, however, wished I was more
girly, for various reasons, but I just don't care that much.
OH YES. I feel like a lot of gay and lesbian people dress like the opposite gender, because that's how they feel comfortable. It doesn't mean they
are uncomfortable with their genitalia, I just think they're expressing themselves. I do think, however, that some people just try to be seriously
flamboyant and in your face, which really bothers me.
But as for the other side of things. I think some people just prefer one type of genitalia, but like the feminine or masculine aspect that can
I can tell you that it's WAY more complicated than that and that there are so many little differences with LGBTQ folks, but that is what little
insight I can offer you. Hope it helps, at least a little.
