I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school. If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me?

It’s just who I am. I have absolutely no issue with it whatsoever, and I don’t care if other people have an issue with it. We’re all intersectional, and that is something that is only just beginning to become accepted or embraced. We’re all complicated beings. That is my truth and that is my experience.
