This is something that I pretty much never talk about, not particularly out of shame but I certainly worry that it takes blurred lines and blurs them even more and that because of that it will effect peoples perception of me.
I'm a straight guy that is open to sex with men. I wouldn't consider myself bisexual as I have no desire to date a man or having anything other than platonic friendships with men, but I have had offers before gone along with it and quite enjoyed myself.
To be honest it is not something that comes up in my day to day life. I don't feel any real kinship with LGBTQ concerns as I don't fall within any bracket that requires any visibility. I still absolutely recognize them as important concerns obviously, just not ones where I am directly affected.
So if it's not a big deal why am I talking about it? Through a series of mishaps that could only happen in some kind of sitcom I was very nearly very publicly outed a couple of years ago, and worrying about that was a big part of what lead me to nearly making a very bad very permanent decision. Years later I'm publicly writing about it in a rather blase way on a blog that anyone can read. The ability to see the big and the small stuff for what it is, is very important..... but when you are struggling in any of the many different you can struggle, it can be very difficult to see that and i suspect there are a great many people that have similar deals that worry about it. So here I am showing that its not to big a deal and that it's nothing to worry about, certainly not something worth missing seeing my little niece and nephew grow up for.
This is a bit of short blog as I don't really have much to say on the subject, it's mainly just putting it out into the real world so the idea of it a secret i need to keep can haunt me again.
