    Good Resource: Emptyclosets.com

    I wanted to bring to your attention an important Internet resource: www.Emptyclosets.com. This site is open to all, but is primarily designed for teens and younger people to safely discuss "coming out" issues. It is a non-porn forum .

    If you get a chance, and wish to look at it and perhaps contribute your own coming out issues, experiences, or even offer support, I encourage you to do so. However, since it is geared toward teens/younger people, references to JUB are not advisable, since JUB is an adults-only site.

    Most of us remember how confusing and scary the teen years were, grabbling with issues of sexuality among all the other issues of being an adolescent. This moderated site allows safe discussions among younger people and will hopefully give them good information and a safe place to be themselves.

    Thanks for taking a look at it.

    Thanks for the plug Averageguy.

    EC is going well, but I would love to see more discussions like the excellent ones in this section, over on EC. If anyone wants to pop over to EC and join in the discussions, you would all be most welcome.

    Thanks,

    Not all of us come out of the closet at an early age like in the teens or 20s. I did not come fully out of the closet until I was 45 or so. Some never get up the nerve to leave the closet. Some homophobes are timidly gay men who hate homsexuality the way some alcoholics hate "demon rum". At least 25 % of alcoholics have sexuality issues. The same is true to a slightly lesser degree of drug usage. But I do encourage youth to come out of the closet as soon as they feel constricted by their closeted life. The sooner youth comes out, the better is their self esteem as a gay man and will lead a happier and more self accepting life. John Wesley

    That site breaks my heart. It's painful looking at some of the threads kids who parents have disowned them, a girl whose parents say she is possessed by demons. Parents yelling and screaming. The world has regressed to the Middle Ages. It wouldn't surprise me if some kid were found burned to death at a stake.

    I had to leave it.

    I havent come out yet. Im too scared to. But Ive reached the stage where I would also like to have a boyfriend. I just started university and there are some nice looking gay guyz who are also 18. (I can detect a gay guy a mile away).

    My friends are all straight and it makes me depressed to see them all happy with their GF's and BF's. I got no idea how to tell my parent, they will probably kick me out the house for sure. Or not feed me or something. I didnt chose to be gay, I still dont know why I was chosen to be gay

    I hate those people who think that being gay is a choice, none of them made the choice to be hetro. 2day a gay guy said I was cute... made me happy Even though he wasnt my typa man. And then another gay guy approached me, but i doubt he thought I was gay. I had a conversation with him, but didnt get his name. I think I should start a sneeky gay relationship, and call him a "friend" ... anyone try that before they "came out" ?

    You have to give people time and understanding to cope with things. But also you cannot sacrifice your own well-being just to make other people more comfortable, because then the progress we need can't happen.

    It's a rough time. But try and see of ways you can help yourself get more confidence that doesn't directly to do with 'gay.' (Still work on that -- but there's really no need to define yourself strongly by one label like that) But think about what you are good at, how can you boost up your independence so you can hopefully one day get to a place where if they can't accept you fully, then you don't need them.

    Just brainstorm ways how you can continue to help yourself. Getting a job is a bitch. But do you have a driver's license? Maybe you could ignore the gay side of yourself and just work really hard improving yourself so you then can have the gay life you want when you're completely self-sufficient. You don't have to play sneaky games like that to start drama. Or use it as a tool to get back at your parents. That's probably not the best way to go about things.

    Just wasting away on internet forums and playing the victim isn't doing anything for you though really, now is it? And you're aware of this.

    The cliche is annoying but true. You have to accept and love you before anybody else can, including your parents.
