    phrase.

    To me it conjures up the thought that something is wrong with being gay, so it's phrased as an "admission".

    Or that one is "guilty" of being gay, so must "admit".

    Honestly do people "admit" they have blue eyes or brown hair?

     

    admitting being gay.

    •  I meant admit to themselves, as much as anyone. (0+ / 0-)

      And because our society is so deeply homo-, bi-, and trans-phobic, and internalized phobia wreaks such havoc on LGBTs, it can be a matter of admitting it.

      This is not a commentary on the moral status of being LGBT, but on how it feels to be LGBT in a heterosexist and homophobic society.
