I'm *****, 14, straight. I'm not lesbian, but I do love Gay relationship. Are you confused? I mean i'm Fujoshi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaoi_fandom#Fujoshi) and I met so many girls like me here. In Indonesia, Homonism is completly taboo. I hate it, but I can't do much here. And... I hid my hobbies from my parents, or otherwise, They'll burn me alive

Mostly of Indonesian are moslem (I'm too)-the religi that forbid biseksual relationship. So... if you're gay or lesbian, hide it and I think you'd better not show it to a common people, except you really know that person will accept it fully.



Don't ever sad, I (and all Fujoshi) won't ever excommunicate you all... We'll always support you! >w
