Unfortunately we must care about how people think around us, we are not alone in this world, we always keep trying to ignore this point by saying we are proud of who we are, but deeply inside all of us we miss something
To be proud of something, you must say it, how many have enough brave sense to say I'm gay to his/her friends, family,..??
I'm not here to foil any one, I'm one of you.. Just I want to send a message for all of us, please for all of us don't decrease the problem by saying we are proud OR we don't care about stupidity
This is called "an escape", so please fix the problem, discusses how we can solve it, may be it is awful difficult taboo in our community but we must get a creative discussion, then we can get proud of what we act not of who we are......!!!!
