suburbannerd: am i gay ???
this posts has nothing to do with coming out ...(at least i think) ...
how do i start this ??? okay ...Im a guy ... 16 this year ...
from childhood i've always love what girls do .... i love pink,love cosmetics and whatnot and shit .... My mom always told me it's wrong to do those things that associates to the female gender,it sort of came off natural to me.Got humiliated and insulted during my pre- and primary school year ...it got through until I started secondary school that I've decided to stop all those girly thingy ... It's fucking difficult not to be myself cause I'm doing these for my family and friends ... then when I started puberty at the age 13 or 14,I realised that i've not come to terms of liking girls in a sexual way(not that i can remember of).....INSTEAD
,i always have wet dreams of guys and I always check them out ... Come to think of that,i've never had those "feelings" for girls .... INSTEAD
, i have feelings for guys."When a cute or a hot guy just walk past me,i always checked them out or take a peek and I always let a huge squeal in my heart like." OMG HE'S HOT/CUTE!"
I fucking hate myself for that,im a muslim by the way.its hard cause its considered sinful ....
I don't have gay friends and nearly all my friends have gf's/bf's ... I' m always alone ... & everytime i hung out with my guy friends and when a hot/cute chick seems to walk pass by us,they would try to woo her and I WOULD FUCKING PRETEND I FANCY HER .... FUCK THESE FEELINGS.
My friends would always asked me ," Hey,when are you going to have a girlfriend ?" I would lie to them saying that I'm not in the mood to be in a relationship cause I'm focusing on my studies ... The thing is I want to be straight and start a family but the fucking problem is how can i fuck my wife without liking her/feeling aroused
within her prescence in that manner ? I don't want to disappoint my family ... And I'm living in ASIA!
Its hard when you're living in a country that doesn't support 'your kind'
~ SO AM I GAY ???
~ i need help please/ im begging in each one of you !!!

You're the only one who can answer this for sure. I mean, yeah, in my opinion I think you're pretty much gay. I wish you the best of luck where you are since it appears Singaporean gays have it rough.

I would say that you're gay but.. in terms of getting married, it used to be a common solution to marry a lesbian.. i know i've considered the option to marry a gay guy. but it's up to you. i know nothing about asia and homosexuality in asia so i can't really comment much.
i can relate however, on the strong religious guilt felt for having such feelings.

We can't really decide for you, of course. We can take what you tell us and say "If I were you, I'd probably call myself gay," but when it comes down to it, you're the only one who knows who you are. From the first little bit of what you said, about liking pink and cosmetics and "girly" things, I might wonder if you might be trans*, but you might not be ready to even consider that possibility, so I won't push. You sound pretty definitely into guys, though.
Don't worry. There are a lot of identities out there besides GAY and STRAIGHT, and even if you turn out the be GAY-identified, it will be okay. When you're done with school, when you're out in the world, when you're away from your family, it'll be a lot easier to... If you haven't figured it out by then, which is a perfectly wonderful thing, it'll be easier to think about it, and if you have
figured something out, it'll be easier to come to terms with whatever it is.
I mean, really, I don't know what it'll be like for you. I have no
idea what it's like to be queer and Muslim and living in an intolerant country, but I'm looking at it like this: it's pretty hard now, so eventually it has to get easier.
Best of luck!

I know you posted this a while ago, but I just thought I'd comment anyway.
It can be really hard when you're living in a culture that isn't quite as open to being gay as some others might be. I live in Canada, but I've know friends that have struggled with not upsetting their family because of cultural reasons.
I'm not sure what country you're in, but try looking up some resources if there are any in your country, it might be a good place to start.
While I'm not a muslim, and I can't imagine what you might be going through, I do have quite a few friends who are gay AND muslim- and both parts of their culture are really important to them. It does not always have to be one way or another.

(Anonymous): New Contest For Aspiring Fashion Designers
For anyone interested in breaking into the fashion industry, there’s a new online contest. You can find it at The Fashion Fantasy Game (http://www.fashionfantasygame.com/). It’s called the Jordin Sparks Jingle Dress Contest.
It's Christmas time, and everyone in fashion knows that now is the time people shop for new apparel. Get into the holiday spirit by designing new virtual clothes and having some friendly competition with other players. It's much better than going to the mall and wasting your parents' money on real clothes that will be out of style by next year.
Oh, and don't forget -- The Fashion Fantasy Game isn't just a game. It's also an open forum for discussion. If you have anything to say about Governor Blagojevich, feel free to say it while chatting, or just email it to User Feedback. I'm sure his name is easier to write than to say!

I live in Asia. Sometimes I get pissed with the general society mindset towards gays too. I hate it. I've yet to come out because I'm too afraid of being shunned by my friends and family. I understand. Many online friends have told me to stay true to myself and to allow myself to love freely. I believe in that. And I guess when I finally meet the one for me, well I guess when that time comes what everyones opinion of me would not matter, eh? Believe in yourself, do not let people around you define who you are, that is the best advice I can offer ;) also, if your friends despise you simply because you are gay, I don't think they are true friends. Tell them about your sexuality when you feel comfortable with it :)

It definitely sounds like you are gay. But always remember, there is nothing wrong with it. The people who tell you they are; they are misguided.
