Q
Me and this one girl were talking and she admitted she liked me but at the same time she confused, we were going to plan to hang out but I guess it freaked her out and she said its like she is in denial, but she still wants to be friends. What should I do? Give her space about it and wait for her to finally make up who she is?

Yes, that’s exactly what you should do. Exploring sexuality can be really scary. Give her time and let her make the calls on her own. No pressure. Ever.

Q

Well, because you’re not doing it because you can. The reason a person commits to a transition or to any other pronouns outside of social norm is not because “they can” it’s because they feel like they have to, in order to feel like themselves. Because gender (not to be confused with sex) is not born into us, sometimes the gender assigned to us doesn’t feel natural. However, there is no real biological process within the womb that would make you identify with an entirely different species.

I hope I helped. :)

Q
So this is mostly just a terminology question, and I don't mean to be rude, I just really don't know. When people say trans girl, do they mean someone whose sex is male but who identifies as female, or the other way around? Same thing for trans male? Sorry, and thank you!

It’s hard, because a lot of people use terminology wrong. a trans* woman is usually someone who identifies as a woman, and a trans* male is usually someone who identifies as a male.

Q
Do you think pomosexuality is a legit sexuality? Or at least a legit personal, self-identifiable label? My "friend" says it's just a hipster term for people who want to sound "cool and sophisticated", but I disagree and I don't know what to do. I'm really confused about who I like and how to categorize that, but I'd really rather not, so I identify with pomo for the time being, and he's just kinda being a jerk about it. What do you think? Any advice?

I’ll be 200% honest to begin with, I’m not familiar with pomosexuality. But it doesn’t matter. If it is a label that people connect to, it’s valid and should be recognized. People will continue to refuse to understand things that are new to them. Society often works like that. Sometimes you need to be patient with people and be firm in your viewpoint and wait until they come around, and if they don’t, you should have a conversation or consider how valuable that aspect of your friendship is to you. You should not have to validate any label that you identify, but it can take time to make people understand.

I don't want to disappoint my family but I think a few of my friends might not care but idk how to come out to them but I'm tired of keeping this secret.

Try it out first. Talk to people online and come out to them. Think about the best way for you to feel good about coming out. I wouldn’t recommend focusing on trying to find a boyfriend yet. Maybe talk to guys around you and test the waters, but don’t make it a main focus.

Q
So I'm a 15 year old girl and I think I might be ace bc I think the concept of sex is just gross, but I really don't care to put a label on myself bc I really just don't know. I've only told my one friend and she kinda made fun of me for being ace but not aro/ anything but straight on several different occasions. I guess I don't need a lot of advice, just confirmation that my feelings are valid enough. Sorry, and thank you.

Your feelings are absolutely valid! No one needs a label. Asexuality is fairly new to people in the way that it hasnt been talked about or considered for a very long time. Remember to be patient with people when explaining your situation, but be honest and upfront when your feelings are hurt. You are absolutely valid in not wanting a label. You do whatever feels right.

Q
Im pansexual Im out in the open and everything I only came out this year I am a girl 15 I stick towards males cuz my parents believe in no homo My friends either dont really believe me or think it is the same as being bi how do I convince them

You don’t have to convince them. It’s hard being so young because people around you can be hard to talk to, but like I said, they don’t have to believe you. Be sure in yourself and don’t get too upset with them. It’s important to remember that the people you come out to are learning too. Work on finding some definitions that feel ring true with you, and possibly integrate them into conversations with your peers in a way that may be easy for them to understand.
