Even though my family knows I am bi, they still don't get that it is painful to hear them describe unwanted things as "gay", or calling people that they don't like as "fags".

It is incredibly hurtful when our loved ones don't support us. Their non-support can come in many different forms. It can be outright rejection, refusing to acknowledge who you are as an individual, or using a part of who you are to refer to others in a negative light. It's hard to imagine the pain you must...

My best friend is 98% sure she's a lesbian, or at least bisexual who likes girls a bit more. She knows for a fact she's not straight because she has had attractions to girls for years. I'm really worried about her. Her sexuality is fine, I'm open to all...Marissa, 14, San DiegoCA
For a long time now, I knew that I've had an interest in guys. I can't get enough of guys. But I'm afraid of what may happen in the future. In some way, I want to be the kind of person who chooses the opposite sex over the same. But the urge for guys...Jay, 14, birminghamAL
I am questioning my sexuality, and I haven't told my parents. I don't want to tell them that I am a lesbian until I am 100% positive. I've never liked a guy past the level of 'close-friend-I-can-trust'. I've been having feelings for girls since I...Alyssa, 15, ChicagoIL
