Ayur | Tumblr

I feel like part of what makes me so uncomfortable with ot // ayur / i (besides from the obvious fact that it's shipping to 15/16 year-old with a 19-year-old) is the fact that , The 15 year-old gay kid, most of my gay friends are 18 and 19 years old

these are some of the people i'm closest too, emotionally and physically. I feel comfortable and safe sleeping in a bed with them, and cuddling, and having them do my makeup or braiding their hair or asking for help unzipping my dress. If i'm having a bad day, i go to them for help. If one of us is having dysphoria or is feeling unsure about labels, we talk about it. I know i can go to them with questions about relationships and sex and they'll give me honest answers and advice, and i do not have to worry about them mistaking our relationship for anything but friendship and mentorship and bonding over common experience. I can feel completely safe in asking them if my outfit is too revealing or where to get free condoms because I know that they would never, not even for a second, think of me in a sexual light.

Do these groups seem to be different enough to be classified in a separate biome? Do not worry, there is no right or wrong answer. The natural world is more varied than we can imagine, and the separation of similar groups can help us better define what we see.

But so, so many people can not seem to understand this. Because we're both gay, and we both like hugs and they kiss me on the forehead when i'm feeling shitty, people assume that our relationship must be a sexual or romantic one. I do not know what to do, I do not know what to do, I do not know what to do. I'm a little sibling to them. They teach me how to survive in this homophobic hellhole of a universe, and someday, i'll pass on that knowledge to younger gay kids.

idk, just my two cents. Please do not do it if you're just going to argue with me about my experiences. Trust me, I know them better than you do. If you're also lgbt and a minor, though, i'd be happy to hear your thoughts on the matter!
