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…

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.
