What are those times and situations when you choose to hide your sexuality?
I'm not gay, but there are times I hide my straightness. I live in Boy's Town Chicago and when I go into a store or restaurant, I can get dirty looks if I'm myself, but if I act gay, I seem to be more accepted.
Certain situations at work I would not want people to know, only because I know some of our customers are homophobic.
Basicaly people who arent family, friends, or significant to me in some way dont need to know.
I am a beleiver that my sexuality, although it influences most things I say and do is something that is irrelevant to other people unless Im trying to sleep with them or have a good old chat about things.
I feel sorry for people who have to hide it, but at the same time I hate the fact that I'm treated differently just because I am straight in a gay part of town.
It's no one's business really, but then I'm not out and have told no one.
There are times, yes, when I don't want people to know especially in work situations or with associates or friends of my parents who are not 100% comfortable or supportive of my sexuality. My private life is my private life and my sexuality in my view is not a political statement but a personal one.
