Want to come out? Here are some tips!
Did someone just come out to you? You get some tips too!
We have had so many asks lately asking about how to come out. We know that this is a huge issue, but we can’t give everyone personal advice on this matter, as stated in the FAQ page…
“Q: How should I come out?
A: I really don’t know. I don’t know you, I don’t your family, your friends, or your community. Usually, I say do what you’re comfortable with. Tell a few people you’re really tight with first. Or start by telling the mirror! Just build up your confidence, and tell people with pride.”
Basically, I can’t read a paragraph and then tell you how or when or to whom you should come out. I also can’t tell you what your sexual orientation is, so remember that when asking questions. We are happy to suggest possibilities and educate about different orientations, but we can’t decide on a label for you. No one can do that but you.
The FAQ page can be found here:

“Bisexual” is a term used on its own, but can also be an “umbrella” or overarching category for many other sexualities. Here are some others that “bisexual” can refer to:
Bisexual- Anyone attracted (sexually, romantically, or otherwise) to people of more than one gender, with different attraction to masculine and feminine traits.
Pansexual- Anyone attracted (sexually, romantically, or otherwise) to people of more than one gender, with no difference in attraction to masculine and feminine traits.
Polysexual- Anyone who is attracted to many, but not all, genders.
Bi-curious- Anyone who is interested in relations with people of different genders, but is unsure of the strength and depth of the attraction.
Heteroflexible- Anyone who is generally attracted to people of their genders different from their own with mild instances of attraction to people of the same gender.
Homoflexible- Anyone who is generally attracted to people of their own gender with mild instances of attraction to people of different genders.
Fluid- Anyone whose attraction to people of the same and people of different genders changes with time.

This is a side blog, so I (Meghan) would have to follow you on my main blog, which I likely don’t do. If you followed this blog hoping we would follow back, unfollow. Thank you.
Mostly, this is because I’m lazy and busy, which don’yt really go together. But, I’m swamped, and I would like some help! Here’s the form! SEND IT AS A SUBMISSION.

Answer the following “commonly asked” questions:
1. My parents are homophobic, but I want to come out! Advice?
2. I’m a bisexual guy, and I feel like I have no one. What gives?
3. People make fun of my bisexuality. It really hurts, and it’s annoying. What should I do?
4. I want to come out to some friends, but I’m not sure how they’ll react. What’s the best way to do it?
5.I feel confused, because I think I’m bi, but everyone says I can’t know because I’m a virgin. Maybe I’m not? I’m really starting to doubt myself.
APPLICATIONS WILL BE OPEN UNTIL FRIDAY, JULY 13TH, 2012. I WILL CHOOSE 1-2 PEOPLE. THANK YOU FOR APPLYING!
Confessions / asks / etc. submitted by a user (i.e. not on Anon) will be answered first, then Anons after. I’m trying to get you people to not be so ashamed of submitting, and I’ll reward those with the courage :)
I CANNOT TELL YOU YOUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. PERIOD.
If you are really that concerned with labeling yourself “correctly”, so some research, some soul searching, etc. I can’t tell you who you are. All further requests for this information will be ignored. Sorry.
I am tired of answering this question, always with the same response. I will no longer answer this question, because you will get this response, and everyone is getting annoyed, including me. Thank you.
