I haven't come out to many people yet, but out of all the annoying questions you get asked when you come out, this is the most annoying one.
I have seen many people using "how did you know that you're straight?" as an answer. But let's face it: a straight person who won't accept you as LGBT will always think of themselves as the rule and of you as the exception no matter what. They will never think of your case as the same or as close to theirs at all.
I have asked myself numerous times just WHEN? HOW? did I "know"? Was there a specific time? a reason, perhaps? anything?
After some time, I realized I only knew I was bi when I realized what straight is, and that it's not what I am. That not all girls feel the way I feel about girls at all they don't see the possibility of being in a relationship with a girl just as much as the possibility of being with a guy, they don't. That's not what straight is and only when I looked around me and found out it's not just me that I realized hey, bisexual , that's something I can relate to, that's me and there's nothing wrong with that (I got to the religion forbidding it part later on, it was shocking)
So, in the end I realized I was bi when I know what straight was, not when I knew what gay was.
I would like to know what you think about this and if you've ever thought about it that way and how do you usually respond to that question or how would you? .
