Called me a faggot today. I have never been this sad in my life.
I thought that word couldn’t hurt me anymore. I was wrong.
I remember, when I was younger, keeping my distance from my brothers when they were growing up because I used to think that I would “infect” them with my homosexuality and I wanted them to have a “normal life”, without hate or bad experiences.
I’m more than comfortable with who I am now. It just hurt to see/hear the disgust on people you love.
