In predominately straight circles?
I am token lesbian in most of the circles I run in. I, for whatever reason, thought me being lesbian would keep me out of a lot of drama goes on in straight human relations.
I might have been wrong.
Example, I have recently admitted to several guys that if I were straight, I would go after them. This has not ended well, lol. Friendship dynamics with these guys have been permanently altered. Either they start hitting on me like crazy…or, they back away, and start acting cold. I would understand these reactions if I were a straight or bisexual woman. But I am gay! Any attraction of men that I speak of is purely hypothetical.
And from straight women…some of them display that jealous/competetive behaviour that goes on between straight women women. Such as being told not to dress up at a party or whatever, and then I show up and she and everyone else at the party is dressed up. Shit like that.
I thought me being gay would take me off the radar when it comes to common group dynamics with straight people.
