Please excuse my tendency to think down logical but pointless alleys like this, but with all the people talking about coming out (congrats to you all, BTW), has anyone heard of someone Going In?



For example, "Mom, Dad, I'm really NOT gay. I...I like girls." etc.



I doubt it happens often, but if someone has a real life story, I'd love to hear it...

That is what happens when a formerly gay person gets attacked by their parish and decides to suppress who they are to follow certain religius edicts.



Not that uncommon at all. Just listen to Christian radio and you hear about these "miracles" every day.



Here in Michigan I listen to WMUZ "The light" on 103.5 FM. I love it. Especially the Bob Dutko show. You can read more about WMUZ here: http://www.wmuz.com/

That sucks. Personally, I was hoping for something funnier.

I wish it were funny. I imagine that on occasions it can be (both coming out and coming in). But I would believe that on both occasions, it is far more rare to find a funny version than a really traumatic one.

I knew a woman who identified herself as a lesbian for many years, then married a man. Her parents had just begun to accept the lesbianism, so the switch really confused them. Also, the gay community in our small town wasn't too understanding. Then again, she had been pretty mean to a lot of people, so she wasn't the best-liked person around, and people didn't feel inclined to try to understand her.

I'm sure you're right. I was kinda thinking along the lines of, "Hey, mom, dad, I like girls, I'm not really gay.....psych!" (There have to be gay people with my sick sense of humor out there somewhere.)



All this trauma thing is just depressing. Maybe a kind Moderator can just close this thread now.

My college roommate had a friend/lover who had issues deciding on her sexuality. She couldn't accept being bisexual or bi-curious so would swing back and forth between beging adamently heterosexual ("What, no way, I'm not gay! I could never be gay since girls don't have...) and proudly homosexual ("Well, of course, I'm gay! Didn't you hear me having crazy lovin' with your roommate last night. I just can't stand being straight, boys dont have...) This went back and forth for quite a while. I don't know if she told her family about it but I know she told pretty much every one at my school. Strange girl.

Incidentally, she's did finally settle on being homosexual and has a quite happy relationship.

At least my story ends happily...

That wasn't Anne Heche was it?
