When it is unimaginable to be yourself … pretend.

When I realized how much religious pressure and brainwashing I’d gone through growing up, I had to test a lot of assumptions.

Now, I assume I’d have noticed if I were lesbian … but it was possible I might be bi without letting myself notice. It is with great interest that I explored my memory and current experiences … to discover that I’m so “straight” that if I were a man I’d be gay. I really appreciated Samantha’s story, linked below, because this could have so easily been me. – Mere Dreamer
