    There's people here from all over, and we're fairly diverse. So I'm wondering, LV, what's your sexuality, and when did you discover that you were that sexuality? Or have you always known?

    Please keep it civil! Love you guys <3

    I'm bi! I thought so in grade 7, but I was soon picked on for it ;_; Still, I prefer to stay true to myself!

    I'm straight, I've always known it but I don't understand why people choose to pick on people with different sexual views. Like that doesn't make you better or more important than the other person and you have no right to do so!

    I am 'bi sexual' by sexuality. I could never support just one team...
    I like both genders equally :)

    50/50 and no more or less.

    I'm straight and have always known it. To me sexuality doesn't matter. What matters to me is who you are as a person.

    I agree with you! What matters is that you treat everyone the same. As I might add.
    And that means... being considerate and manners into account.

    Unless someone is mean or nasty to you.
    Then... I don't believe in giving back. Just ignore them.

    Yeah, I never tried to keep up with all the labels because all it does is stereotype the individuals or even a group. You are what you are, you are what you feel, and you are what you chose to be. Who am I to judge you just because you don't have a similar orientation to mine. You are a person and I shall respect you unless you treat others badly. I can only see things from my perspective so who am I to judge the rest of you? Just keep being awesome and make your own path.

    I think far too many people are judged by their sexuality, rather than who they are in love with
    and how that romance means to others and themselves. :(

    Labels are only for boxes... as someone told me years ago.

    I have to agree with you on that. If the two people truly love each other and are not harming anyone, I see no reason why they can't be together. Pulling them apart because of "gender roles" makes about as much sense to me as a watermelon riding a unicycle.

    The term I've been using for a few years is panromantic asexual (weird Tumblr terms but they fit for labels). Idec abt gender, really. You can be genderfluid, transgender, male, female. It doesn't matter to me. As long as we click, then you're good in my book.

    Though, sex is otherwise. I generally don't have that kind of attraction towards others. I mean, I find people attractive, but I'd never want to sleep with anyone.

    To be honest I actually did not think we could ask questions like this on LV, but I learn something new everyday hahaha, I am actually straight, but I do not want to date anyone which is weird, mostly because of something tragic in my childhood and it ruined everything for me so I guess I am actually Asexual

    Actually, the term for a disinterest in dating or lack of "crushes" so to speak is aromantic. Asexual is used for a lack of sexual attraction.

    ~

    Anyway, I'm aromantic and questioning right now. I don't feel necessarily straight, if that's a term.

    I'm aromantic, like how Skittle said, and I think it's probably gonna stay that way for me. I've never really thought of anyone in a romantic view, and I don't think anyone would find me romantic anyway XD

    I'm...not actually sure. I've never felt that attracted to anyone past 'they're nice' or something. (Here's to you, person who sits across from me in math!).
    I'm pretty open about this stuff. I mean, if I click with someone, it doesn't matter what gender they are. Honestly, I feel more attracted to certain girls than boys. It's really just if I like you and feel comfortable around you. But I will admit I don't feel fully 'female' or anything. The problem is, not many people that I know face-to-face actually accept that, so I've just kept that low-key for years.

    personally im non labelling for sexual attraction but for romantic attraction im pansexual which pretty much means ill date anyone regardless of gender (nonbinary, etc) but since people irl arent very accepting of that i usually say im non labeling for attraction in general.

    I'm Bi. Though my preference is to date guys due to my beliefs. Found out my younger brother was Bi too. He was scared to tell me he was Bi, but I told him "Lol Bro, I'm just as gay as you are". I live in a Christian family and he thought our mom and dad would hate us for it. They really don't lol.

    I'm bi-sexual. I like both genders equally and I don't get why people need to make fun of us. There are no reasons to judge

    It took me awhile to figure out my sexuality and of course my parents don't believe me when I say it. They expect me to be heterosexual and how I'll end up enjoying having sex but I find it disgusting and I share no attraction to it despite being a virgin. I always found myself being demisexual or perhaps aseuxal but I felt that wasn't it either until I discovered another term that fits who I am.

    I'm heteromantic. I'm attracted to guys but I'm only interested in the romance aspects and not the sexual attention. What I mean by this is basically cuddling, going on dates and etc just not the sex. Hopefully one day my family will realize this and just leave me alone. It's sad I have to prove myself whenever I find the right boyfriend for me who understands my sexuality.
