Who here wished they weren't gay/lesbian/trans and were straight instead (or vice-versa)? For instance I just wished I was ''normal'' like straight and didn't have people have to deal wtih my gay drama and homosexuality in general.
It fucking sucks
Of course! Not that I'm against homosexuality for some bullshit hateful reason, its just more convenient to be straight, plus, I don't really get anything out of this part of myself, it just distracts from things that are actually important to me. To be perfectly honest if I could choose my orientation I'd choose to be asexual non-romantic whatever the fuck makes me not care about smelly genitals.
You talk this way because of the thought "i wouldn't change my life with anyone".
But what if you haven't a self yet?
You are born. You can choose.
I'd see absolutely no reason to choose gay compared to hetero or viceversa.
Or rather, straight would be a better choice simply ebcause you don't have to deal with meaningless drama, small date pool, random racism and all that fluff.
I'm a bi trans woman.
I don't really care about my sexual orientation, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a single goddamn trans person that doesn't wish they were cis.
And if they claim they don't, they're probably not even trans.
If you could surgically alter the part of the brain that's making us trans, you might be able to get us to be comfortable being cis men.
But not only is that kind of surgery far far out of medicine's capabilities right now, but I'd also imagine that 'who' I am would change a great deal if you made me comfortable being a man. I believe that trans women (and just women in general) really do think differently to men, and that these differences make it impossible to compromise what we experience with living comfortably as our birth sex.
uh but i dont want to be a guy, id rather be a trans woman than a cis man which is the entire reason i transitioned
im glad im queer tho, being straight would be super duper weird honestly
You don't need surgery. You just need therapy.
No, I like being gay. I live in a fairly liberal area, so I don't get any shit for it. My family tolerates it, but idc what they think of me, anyway.
I feel like I'd be a completely different person if I were straight. Straight men are held up to more rigid standards than gay ones and I'd hate tying to live up to them. It's easier to be gender nonconforming if you're gay, for example- What're they gonna do, call you gay?
Also, while I love being friends with women, I'd hate to put up with the dynamic that goes along with dating them. I'd rather date someone I'm on equal grounds with in stead of being expected to be the strong one.
I wrestle with that subject a lot. There's a lot of disadvantages that would go away, like people making assumptions based on your sexuality, higher risk of AIDS, persecution or rejection if you live in certain countries, fear of disappointing your parents even if they say they're okay, the fact that your dynamic with straight friends can change completely when they find out...
Overall I'd be better off straight but I feel comfortable being gay regardless. I don't know how to describe it but it's a part of me I'd feel missing if it went away.
Plus there's shit like not having to deal with women that feel entitled to everything, don't put effort into the relationship and age like milk; easier hookups, a wider variety of "acceptable" body types, and freedom from a lot of restrictions set by a mold you're no longer trying to fit into.
I'm pretty certain every MtF wishes they were a cis female rather than trans, and likewise every FtM wishes they were a cis male.
If you would choose to be trans if given the choice, you are insane.
straight is better, I'll fulfill my dream of having a family and my parents will eventually get their grandson.
>TFW you now know from your time here that some people actually are this autistic.
Every trans person ever wished they weren't trans. Same used to be common for gays but nowadays it's extremely rare in the first world and confined to like overly religious communities in the American south.
Me too. I wish I was mostly masculine and straight.
Instead am a feminine bisexual who has the body of a hairy teen girl with facial hair and thinks about cocks every fortnight that am horny.
>or vice versa
Sometimes I hope I end up being trans just so I get to take estrogen, even though my hairline alone would make passing hard as fuck. I wish I had just been a woman to begin with. I wouldn't have to deal with any of this shit.
I wish I'd been a cis girl, though I'm still glad I'm a trans girl rather than a cis guy, if that makes any sense.
I also wish I wasn't a lesbian. Things would be so much easier if I liked guys...
I'm bi and I wish I were straight. People say if you're bi you can go stealth mode by just acting straight and still having good sex, and you do have that option in theory but it really messes with your head so it's not worth it.
Doesn't help that I'm gender nonconforming to some degree.
yeah I really wish I had been a woman. but I think that just has to do with the fact that I hate pressure to embody traditional masculine roles. I don't have dysphoria or anything.
>I hate pressure to embody traditional masculine roles
That's part of it for me, but I also just wish I had a woman's body. I've never really liked my body and didn't have a clue why for the longest time.
I feel that way sometimes too, but for me it's more like, "I wish I could just stop existing."
Not me. I honestly think homosexuality is superior and being gay is a blessing and a privilege. The only real downsides come from mistreatment by jealous straight people.
I do but I am straight in my head, which is the problem because I'm not. Most of my influences as a child and even today were from men who fawned over women and many of my friends are guys who would talk about women and put women on a pedestal, to the point where when I look at a picture of a man and a woman, I think it's normal I rather fuck the woman than fuck the man.
I even have dreams where I'm a straight guy.
They know not the folly of their ways.
I don't know, man. All other things being equal, homosexuals and bisexuals only comprise about 5% of the populations. That alone makes finding potential partners more difficult. As a bi fag myself, I can say that finding opposite sex partners is a LOT easier simply because there's a lot more of them.
I would be a cis girl. [spoiler]and im not even trans I just think it would be so much better/funner to be a girl [/spoiler]
I would not be straight I love being bi.
I would absolutely prefer to be straight over a lesbian. Ever since I discovered I'm a lesbian it's only caused me problems. It started with "well damn, my dating pool is like nonexistent" but now it's more like, "holy shit, how am I going to tell my family I'm married to a woman". Also, my roommate swears she has nothing against it but makes subtle offensive comments all the time.
I love women, I absolutely do, but in this society it's just really fucking inconvenient. I just wish things were easy.
