It Hurts

Every time…

Every time someone says “It’s just a phase” or “she’ll get over it”

Every time gay is used as a synonym for bad

Everytime heterosexuality is treated as the only option

Every time lesbian love is used for male titillation

Everytime that I’m reminded my own government does not grant me the rights of a straight citizen.

There are so many levels of pain. The rage and frustration felt with the realisation that no matter what you do, people will condemn you for something you can’t control. The overwhelming sadness when once close friends flinch when they see you. Underneath that is the fear. The fear that one day you will be hunted down and there is absolutely nothing that you can do about it.
