So, freshman year, I was used as a deciphering tool at homecoming… he wanted to know if he was gay or straight, and using me to tell (I did not know at the time)… He is in a happy relationship with his boyfriend now…
My best guy friend the next year starting hitting on me, and we entered a flirtationship… still one of my best friends, but he is now searching for the perfect guy to take as his date to senior prom.
A girl I had hung out with over the summer tells me she recently fell in love with her boyfriend’s ex…she is bi now.
My aunt ran off, to be with a female truck driver. She is a lesbian.
My best gal friend was on tinder as I noticed girl pop on her screen… I didn’t say anything… three months later she tells me she is bi.
My sister (she was adopted, originally my cousin) who was boy obsessed all of her adolescent years, tells me she has a crush on her friend, who is a girl…and this is not the first girl she has fallen for. She is bi.
My little brother came out five days ago, as he was caught with a boy in class. He is transgender.
I am straighter than ever, my boyfriend is such an incredible guy… but how do I deal? How do I encourage them and not encourage their habits? My group of friends contains gay, bi, bi-curious, and all of the others all for gay marriage…and I am over here like, “Hey, ummm, the bible disagrees, so I don’t exactly agree.” We are all going on a senior trip this year- a week in Tn, and I have no idea how I am going to survive. I need a little help finding a way to remain friends, because they are pushing me away, and I try not to shovel my beliefs down their throat. I don’t bring it up at all.

Here’s a tip: Be a good friend and don’t do that. Don’t support them, or tell them they’re bad, or that it’s a “choice” of theirs. The whole world tells them that and it’s why people like them–like me–send years hating themselves and can be led to hurting themselves.

Well said, mary! I agree with her. You don’t necessarily have to agree with what they’re young, but as a Christian, it’s always our duty to love a love all else. So you don’t have to be all “Oh yeah! I don’t find anything wrong with what you’re doing or how you are living!” It’s fine to have differences of opinions and beliefs-that’s what makes our world so richly varied! But it will always be important to tell them that you support them and will be there for them. They’ve more than likely heard that what they’re doing is wrong already and it’s hurting them, and the best thing you can do is to be a loving friend or sister.
