It’s safe to say that most people don’t have that clear of a view of the LGBT community. And why should they? In today’s society, the one we’ve grown so accustomed to, they don’t have to hide who or what they like. It’s a bit unfair to say, though at times, being heterosexual, being “the norm”, just looks easier. There’s no need to hide your interest, or even to wonder just who may be interested in you, just because they have no need to hide theirs either. To play the dating game when your sexuality doesn’t fall behind the line of normal isn’t very much of a game at all. I’ve heard from friends how hard it is to find someone when you don’t want to put yourself out there, for the risk of being outed. I’ve read on tumblr just what people would give for the chance to have a secret term for you, and only you to know, if someone was playing on your team. All relatable risks, I’d say, regardless of your sexuality. Still, I feel as though even that risk shouldn’t stop you. I must confess, I think fear in that regard runs far too many lives. Being gun shy with love is one thing, but it makes me wonder if being fearful of other’s opinions with regard to your own personal matters is worth it? You guys tell me for whom it would matter, won’t you?
