Right? How many family members will cut off contact?

How many night will they sleep on the street after being kicked out?

How many punches or slaps will they take from a homophobic parent?

How many friends will they lose?

Will they have to avoid showing their SO affection in public for fear of being attacked?

How many wills will they be cut out of?

How many family businesses will they be removed from?

How will they ever have children in the future and will their kids friends make fun of them fir their same sex parents?

How many times will they be called a pervert? Or a pedo?

These people are absolutely UNBEARABLE. Being lesbian or gay is NOT a trendy new pair of shoes. These are the most uncaring, unsympathetic fuckwits I’ve ever come across.

Can you even imagine the "coming out" conversation:

-DemiSexual: "Hey Mom. I only want to fuck my husband!"

-Mom: "That's....nice"

-DemiSexual: "and that makes me a queer LGBTQAIIWTF!"

-Mom: "....are you having a stroke, sweetheart?"

"Mom I'd only ever have a sexual extramarital affair if I had an emotional affair with that person first."

EXACTLY. The rebranding of an aspect of emotional maturity as some sort of supposedly tiny aspect of supposedly-out-there-super-specialness drives me up the wall.

"Demisexual" = I understand that people entering sexual relationships are not just bodies rubbing against each other, but they also have inner lives! And I understand that relationships are, well, relational! But hey... Let me phrase this insight in narcissistic terms, so I can pretend that a large part of society are villains.
