    Hey guys! This is going to be a bit different than other posts, but for one of my classes I need to write a speech about the impact of prejudice on a group of people, so I'm going to write about the impact that homophobia has on the LGBT community.

    I was just wondering, does anyone have any ideas or input? (I'm not trying to get you guys to do my assignment, just trying to get some different opinions and perspectives)

    I can tell you how being transgender and novisexual affected me.

    I have always been tomboyish, short hair and boy clothing. Most of the clothing was passed down by my male cousin but, I have been made fun of for wearing them, even by my parents.

    I loved dressing as a male, at six I always thought being a male was my destiny but it wasn't a thing in my mind. I didn't know what transgender was until 14 but was still confused as well, I like girl clothes and make up too, not to the extent as boy things so I wasn't really transgender right?

    It wasn't until 21, I fully accepted I am trans*. And I still struggle with it. I am out on some online forums and that is the extent I will be out right now due to concerns for my safety but, I also fear about what will happen when I come out.

    Will the endo refuse care because I crossdress and am not masculine enough, I have questioned if I go see an endo if I should dress masculine as possible and present myself that way but, I don't want to lie, I am lying now, I am sick of lying.

    I feel like a pervert going to the bathroom, I don't belong in the girl's bathroom but I still get periods and have to go like other human beings. Will it affect housing, jobs? I deep down know that is a possibility and think my parents may kill me if I find out. I will NOT come out to them in person or even by email. It will be mail from a post office if I come out to them.

    Oh and it is soo wonderful being fetishized on a online forum, let's leave it at that to maintain members innocence here considering it is a BDSM forum.

    As for my sexuality, this I am out to some people about so oh boy, one of my first memories about it is asking a pastor if being gay is a sin, (was Christian at the time), him saying for me to figure it out, so I went with what answer my parents went with (mostly my mom) , it is a sin.

    At 14, I started cutting due to my sexuality and was invited to a sermon from a friend, the sermon, the evils of homosexuality. I have been told I am sinning. (Still a Christian here but, rapidly losing faith due to other reasons though being lgbt had a part of it).

    Hearing how I should be celibate by people, and how I ruin marriage, and me even mentioning sexuality is flaunting it doesn't make me feel happy to be here, especially when close relatives who don't know my sexuality say this stuff. I feel like a freak and have attempted suicide over both my gender and sexuality and I will eventually come out completely and "flaunt it".

    I recently discovered the term novisexual and replaced bisexual with that as I think novisexual describes my sexuality better.

    Thank you so much for sharing! I'm sorry about everything you've been through.

    P.S I'm Christian too, and I like to believe that homosexuality is not a sin, despite what other people say.

    This has certainly helped, so again, thank you.

    I'm not Christian anymore but, more power to you.

    And I'm glad this has helped.
