Okay, let's set the mood. www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtGY4G…
Well, here it goes. A recent development in my life has made it very clear to me that I can no longer keep this secret. It is about time I started embracing myself for who I really am and not being ashamed anymore. So, I have something to tell you.
I am pansexual.
Confused? Let me explain.
The term pansexual can take on a variety of different meanings depending on the social group, but it is generally defined as someone who is attracted to other people regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. The word pansexual is used as an inclusive term as opposed to bisexual, as bisexuality only refers to people liking both men and women, and does not including a wider variety of gender neutral or gender fluid terminology.
So no, it is not the same as being bisexual. (Don't worry, a lot of people get it confuzzled! ) I have thought about who I am for a long time now, and I can say without a doubt in my mind that I am pansexual. And I for one am tired of hiding it, I am so tired of feeling ashamed of myself when there is nothing to be ashamed of. This is who I am, this is what I was meant to be. No one programmed me to be this way, it was just how I was born. And yeah, I am scared right now of not being accepted but here's the best part: I DON'T CARE.
I don't care anymore, I don't care if I am not accepted because you know what? If you really loved me, you would accept me as I am. I accept you as you are, why is it any different with me? Heck, you should all be PROUD that I am proud of who I am, and that I understand that people who do not take me as I am are not worth my love. Now, I have a few words for some very special people in my life.
Mom: I am not so worried about you. Because you are a very open minded woman with one of the biggest hearts I have ever known. And I thank you for raising me with your values, and for always supporting me. No matter how annoying I can be sometimes(Lets be real, I can be a pain in the butt). I am proud to call you my mother, Love you~
Dad: Okay, even though you hardly ever use Facebook let's hope mom makes you this time.(MOM MAKE HIM DO IT, like seriously don't even tell him why just tell him there's something important he needs to see or something). Okay, maybe you're a little disappointed. I get it's a little harder for you, and some other people, to take this. But I need you to understand, I'm still the same. I'm still you're daughter, that one you love so much, right? So I need you to accept her because she is using every ounce of the courage you gave her right now. And more importantly, she needs you as her supporter. So no matter how strongly you may feel that this is wrong or whatever it is you feel, set it aside. Because you need to embrace your daughter as she is because she is not hiding anymore. But you know what? Even though you are a little cranky, you're still my dad. And I'm proud to call you that, I love you.
Not in my house family(oh and Katie ): Thank you for all pitching in a little bit of your love to make me feel so confident and loved. I love all of you .
Friends/Moirails/awesome people: Guys, what can I say really? Gog, thank you so much for supporting me and loving me for who I am. You guys really are really the best people I could ask for. I am proud to say I know all of you. I love all of you my awesome little tacos~!
Too much for a Facebook status? Oops, sorry I am forgetting to care. I chose this way because I knew you would all see it. (Sorry writing you all letters would take a lot more time! XD) But seriously, let's be real here. This is who I am, and you know what? I'm not ashamed anymore.
Thanks for reading~ LOVE YOU.
(Oh and yeah feel free to share, I don't care )
