Coming Out Straight



Growing up as a young child, I never really got questioned about whether I liked boys or girls, nor was the possibility of having that option visible to me. It seemed pretty obvious to me at that young age that boys liked girls and girls liked boys, given how the people around me talked and the typical model that I was presented with. Reality was, that the "obvious truth" was simply an illusion that was created by a culture that assumes a cisgender heterosexual norm.
