Skylark And likewise, so can monogamy, especially when people are involved. ;-)

You're very right for pointing out it's not a fix for wanting to sleep around or experiment with threesomes.

Ultimately each polyrelationship has its own set of 'rules' (what is/isn't okay to do with others). Polyamory as a whole can get very messy.

I personally dont know what I am, I had one fling with a girl once, because I was curious. Anyway sometimes I find my self looing at  women.

 I have a lot of gay and lesbian friend tho. Love em and would not want anything different.

Oh I 100% agree with you! It's just that a lot of people don't, unfortunately. It's just like with abortion rights - a person having an abortion has nothing to do with anybody else, but people MAKE it their business. And with marijuana - same thing. Gay marriage - same. People love to make none-of-their-business into their-most-important-business. It sucks.

As for polyamory being better than adultery, never thought about that, but that's a good point (assuming all the people involved are on the same page about it!).

Anyway, I say screw society's shackles and just do you!

Also, welcome Opolito and Rocket!

Hi All,

 

I am new to the board, just posted in the new members section.  I also wanted to post here as I am a lesbian!  Someday am hoping to find a good lady to appreciate my Vegan cupcakes - and cookies, and brownies, and everything else that comes out of my kitchen.

Lesbian. :P

 

And a very new vegetarian.

yurak I see myself as sexually fluid. I tend to see myself as a 'man'. I have cross dressed on a few occasions and do enjoy skirts, just not unseemly bulges :blush: I have slept with both genders. I have more draw to women, but can see the beauty in men and ultimately want a polyamorous relationship. I don't know if I'd always sleep with a man but I know I can love a man smiley.gif

Now it's time to fight my way out of society's shackles

Gay, vegan male here. It's wonderful to see so many LGBT people on VB, and I didn't expect to see 35 pages, either. I've only read a little, but I have noticed a much larger gay/bi/pan population on the girl's side, so far. How intriguing! :) 

 

Anyway, that's all from me, for now. wink3.gif

Don't discount the possibly of being gender queer! Unlike bigendered, which follows the idea of a gender binary, gender queer is all encompassing. I have. A few friends who are gender queer, and they dress and act how they feel without the need for a gender label. (although one of them has chosen a "hard" gender label to be used as default, but that label is a preference that he likes and has no apparent bearing on how he presents himself day-to-day). Just throwing that idea out there, as there is no need to "choose one". Whatever you do, make just do it because it will make you happy! smiley.gif

Viridian Hetero here, but I felt like sharing that a band mate of mine is transgendered, and is getting some surgery done soon! Since the transistion, MtF, she's become a lot happier. You can definitely tell that coming out with all that was a lot of weight lifted off her shoulders!

Anyways, thought i'd give my two cents. tongue3.gif

Awesome! Where did you get it done? When I had my srs done in Montreal (April 2012), they had me fill out a form before I went regarding allergies and if I was a vegetarian or not. When I got there, they had no real veg option! Grr! The next day they went out and got a bunch of stuff for me, and made sure to have veg options at every meal. I guess I was the first veg they had gotten? Congrats, and I hope you heal up well soon!

I believe I am a (mostly) homo-romantic asexual. I say "mostly" because I can find men aesthetically attractive sometimes, but I can't imagine ever being romantically involved with a man. I don't recall ever being romantically attracted to a man like I have with women... although romantic attraction to women has been few and far between too (my last relationship was a decade ago). I'm mostly happy being on my own, minus a limited periods of loneliness. I've never been sexually attracted to anyone. 

 

So my closest approximation would be either homo-asexual, or possibly aromantic-asexual? Labels are tricky things! tongue3.gif

Afternoon all, I see there are lots of LGBTQs on here. Allisona64 I hope the surgery goes well and you have lots of caring people around you offering you support on your recovery. I hope they are respectful of your food choices too!

I'm having my surgery (sex reassisnment surgery) Wednesday shocked.gif I hope they know how to cook vegan food at the recovery house. I'm more worried about the food than the surgery! dizzy2.gif They are better to not serve me Jell-o!

I want to say bisexual or pansexual, even though I have never had a relationship with a woman, I find women and men attractive. When I see an attractive couple, I am staring at the man and the woman! It is a question I have been pondering for a while. I also agree with Kinseys studies. I was raised in a Christian household and was raised to believe it was wrong, so I think I suppressed it for a long time and now that I am in my 30's, it is really eating at me to come out of the closet. For the first time in my life I am actually considering dating a woman.

 

Add me to the list of proud LGBTQ  Feminist Vegatarians! thumbsup.gif

I'm not into labels but if I had to pick one I'd go with pansexual. If someone asks me I tend to say bi however as most poeple know what that word means. Not too long out of a serious, year long relationship and completely confused as whether I'm happy to be single or not.
