Our Jail by suburbancliche Our Jail by suburbancliche
Being in the closet, is worse than being in jail.

Society holds the key. Only because we let them.

If being in the closet was worse then being in jail, people wouldn't stay in the closet to avoid getting put in jail for homosexuality. Find a better quote.

I feel your pain >.< I'm a bisexual girl, so I'm not sure if it's called "in the closet" for girls, but still. Awesome quote, too :D

What else would it be called? I'm pretty sure it's gender neutral :)

Yeah, okey, I've also told a couple of my closest friends and they took it great ^^ I've also told my famiy, but I'm not sure if they understand that I only "like" guys... I'm planning to tell the rest of my friends and yeah... the world, but it's really hard :/

It really is. I'm envious if your courage to tell your parents. I know every situation is different, but parents are always hard to break the news to. When did you know?

yeah, I've read about your problem telling your parents, I'm so suffering with you! :heart:
My first "feeling" I think I had when I was 10 years old, but I wasn't "sure" untill i was like 14.
how about you!?

We're all in it together, in one way or another. :) I wasn't sure till May of this year, but I did have feelings for many years. Is homosexuality still "taboo" in Sweeden?

Gosh I feel you. I've only came out to a few people and it was really hard, but I know I can't come out to any one else or I would lose them, but I feel terrible being in the closet.

I've only told 4 people. It's so hard figuring out who you can trust, and who even deserves to know. Good luck, darling.

Thanks, and I've only told 4 people too. It's terrible because I like my best friend, but I've heard her say she doesn't 'believe' in gays *sigh*

My experience has taught me to value the friendship for what it is and find someone else. I have been in that situation FAR too many times.

I knoow it feels, especially aorund fmaily. you cant feel like you can join in any conversationd. And its awkurad for me when girls tlak about fellas to me. Even worse when they ask me if I have a boyfriend, I just wanna scream it out 'NOOO i like girllssss!' you feel like a prisoner. no wander many lesbians and gays are so shy

The worst part is that we allow ourselves to be in that prison. WE hold the key, WE can come out, but fear and pressure hold us down. I have the utmost respect and honor for anyone that comes out completely.
