WHERE IS THIS ALL COMING FROM!? This comic is just some comments people have made towards me. They weren't big enough situations to each deserve their own comic, so I put them into one. I've always wondered WHERE exactly people get these ideals from. They treat it like fact, but it's only baseless opinions.

Agree. Completely >.<

As an asexual, I can say the second comment kills me. I get asked it almost every time I mention I'm asexual. How do you know you don't like sex if you haven't tried it? Bullshit. As if a het person has to try having homosexual relationships before they can conclude that yes, they really do only like the opposite gender.

Yeah the how do you know thing really kills me to. HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE TO EAT POOP

Not to compare any people to poop but

Agh please help me come up with a less disrespectful analogy xD

@FoxGoddessYoko: That would be a nice generalization to easily explain things...if all these people in this comic strip weren't hard core left-wingers in the California Bay Area. JUST SAYING!

Don't forget for those who have had men, its "you haven't had the RIGHT man" its always something... Why can't it just be I am because I am just like ur straight/bi/whatever cause u are....:\ And to Guest: great comment u don't hear from all the hetro that they have tried sex with a homosexual ...maybe they should :) I love when they say "I could see myself kissing a other girl but sex..ummm no" Really u thought that much about it?? Whats the saying 'a thought is as much as a deed'

I'm bi myself and comments like these, honestly I have a high disdain for the people who say them to me but then later I look back and can't help but laugh. It's just kind of one of those things I guess.

Reply Amber (Guest), October 24th, 2011, 4:59 pm

This totally. Someone once told me it might be because I'd hadn't found a guy I found attractive yet. Um...yes. That is true. I never will. (Well not in a sexy way.)

"But how do you know you're a lesbian if you've never been with a guy?!?~?~!?!?!?!11"

How do you know you're straight if you've never been with a girl?

Anyway; yes. Tut-tut. Ello. Pip pip - cheerio and all that nonsense.

Ive been in all these situations. The third one was a little different though. I had to explain how you are BORN gay/lesbian/bi. You dont choose it.

Reply KatzyKins, January 19th, 2012, 7:55 am

>3> I love the 'HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DON'T LIEK MEN?!' argument,

:P How does a gold star heterosexual girl know she's straight, if she's never tried sex with a lady?

That argument works both way xD it's so flawed it's hilarious

Where do they get this from? The internet or an ignorant moron. That is where they get this from.

GUH. That's like saying, "How do you know your pansexual if you-" "BECAUSE I CAN IMAGINE IT AND GOD IT'S SEXY"

It's fuckin' stupid when people say sexual orientation is a choice.

Question~! Before I ask you my question though, let me tell you a little story... Three years ago a sweet girl from my class asked me out. Her confession was absolutely beautiful and I said yes without a second thought. Only problem? I've never been with a girl before. I've had a couple boyfriends, but never a girlfriend. She had such a way with words though and well let's just say she was pretty good looking to say the least. So anyways we went on our date and it was wonderful. We spent the whole day together, laughing and holding hands, but as it got later things got steamier. But as the french kissing began I suddenly got the the feeling that something was not right. Not wrong, just...not right. I really don't know, something just clicked. So I pulled away and said "Look, you're a really good kisser, but I'm sorry I'm not into girls" she raised an eyebrow at me before saying "And you've just realized this now?" Me being me, I went into panic mode. I started pacing the room, all the while ranting an apology, when suddenly I heard laughter. When I turned around to see her laughing I suddenly got a case of the giggles myself and, long story short, in the two years since that event we've become the best of friends. ANYWAY now that you know my story hopefully you won't shoot me when you hear my question. How do you know you don't like men (or women) if you've never been with one? I'm not trying to offend, I'm honestly curious *shrugs* I mean I didn't know myself until I tried it... I don't know, maybe I'm just programmed weirdly ^^;

DO NOT FRET PRECIOUS LASS! @ive1always1loved1you: I WILL TELL YOU A SUMMARY OF THE STORY OF MY GAYNESS! In the same way you didn't feel right kissing a girl, I don't feel right being with a guy in any form of romance. I INDEED HAVE TRIED! Once in elementary school, then once again in high school. I remember liking girls and would kiss them in elementary school (it was very innocent). However, I also remember being with a boy and not feeling as I did with the girls. I even felt I had to, because it was normal too. Given, because this was when I was very young, homosexuality or any form of sexuality wasn't known to me yet.
I figured out my sexuality, similar to you, when I tried to be with a boy during my teens and early high school. In middle school I would often try to force myself to be attracted to boys. At the time I was afraid and confused as to why I wasn't liking boys. (Especially when I already hit puberty), but brushed it off as "I'M STILL YOUNG, I'LL LIKE BOYS EVENTUALLY". Obviously this never happened.
BUT, like you with girls, being with a boy felt so 'not right' and off that I quickly ended it with the boy in high school after a short time (Maybe 2 weeks max). I just don't feel right being with a man. HOWEVER, with girls, throughout my life, I did and still do feel 'right' unlike with men.


LET ME EXPLAIN THIS COMIC TO YOU, because I think you took an innocent understanding. (which is ok and refreshing). When people ask me "How do you know-" type questions, it's about sex. Always about sex. So they aren't asking me about relationship wise (as you did), they are asking me that because I have not had sex with a man, I can not know that I don't like men. THAT IS THE PROBLEM. If the person wasn't inserting that I need a smelly man penis in my vagina to know myself and my sexuality, then I wouldn't have a problem with that question. (I know this, because if I ask them to explain what they mean, they have always asked in terms of sex)
You're question didn't offend me, because it wasn't about sex, but relationships in general.

For me, I didn't need to do much sexually (besides kiss a 2nd grader boy and a few lasses) to know my sexuality and what I'm comfortable with. Some people do need too do more sexually and some even go as far as sex to discover their sexuality.

P.S. You are not programmed weirdly. In your experience, you had to try a relationship and a smooch. I think most people have. But not everyone needs to have sex or even kiss to know, is what I'm trying to imply.

I HOPE I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION. And sorry for any misspellings and for the long summary of MY LIFE.
