    my family (mother or brother) or friends would be angrily upset,as well as unsupportive if i were sexually attracted to both men & women.it would cause both of them (family & friends) to disown me in an instant.

    If my family and friends would not be supportive of who I am, I would disown them before they got the chance to disown me. Or, I'd just let them disown me and say good riddance. Don't need people in my life that aren't going to accept me for who I am. That is not my definition of family/friend.

    I'm pan (attracted to people regardless of their sex and gender), asexual (I'm not sex-averse, but I really can't imagine why I'd want to take someone's clothes off), nonbinary, and transgender.

    I'm also lucky that my family has been very supportive of all this. I even put up a pride flag in my room. Haven't been to a pride parade yet, though; maybe next year.

    people like that who are not supportive of their loved one's attraction are not really family or friends at all....EVER.

    I'm not LGBT. And I'm not homophobic or transphobic at all, but I'll tell you what: I'll be so happy when all those bright rainbows at the mall are taken down at the end of the month. Talk about overstimulation!

    You know it's just "Rainbow Capitalism". They are just advertising schemes by big corporate think tanks that are using you to try to increase their profits. They are not your allies. And as soon as Pride Month is over, they'll forget all about you.

    Just like on Amazon Prime, they'll have all these movies advertised for Black History Month or Women's History Month, but hardly any of them will be free. And as soon as that appointed month is over, they take down their banner in support of that community, but they'll still leave a few up on the main page (all expensive, of course), to try to squeeze a little money out of you, while purporting to be "allies", so that you can feel good about yourself, and they can make money off of you.

    I like rainbows, it’s the malls and shopping I dislike and find difficult.

    I'm not gonna watch the video as I do tend to be triggered by certain words, but the rainbow house and flags are great to see, @Skittlebisquit .

    Choosing love works for me.

    If you want a story to inspire then there is a related issue. This poor woman grew up in that viper pit of hate. She got better, left the creep show and now is advocating tolerance and acceptance.

    That guy with the new museum, (open to the public) right across the street from the hellgate, is a fine american, if you need a role model go be like him

    That's the thing about the generation gap, we just won't ever understand eachother completely.
    I would not ever advertise something like that, it terrifies me.
    Couldn't even pick out a bi flag from a lineup!

    Know this Jared, there is nothing wrong with you. Bisexuality is documented as socially acceptable in Roman times. Did you ever see the pornograpghic pottery and the mosaics of a certain city?
