I've read a a couple stories that mad me sad on here about the faith and a few of you leaving the religion. Now I am going to be honest. I am a lesbian and have been so ever since I was younger, sharing my first kiss with a girl in preschool. Early start huh? Anyways, I still am not out in the open and honestly have NO desire to come out, everyone has an idea and once in a while a brave one might inquire to which I reply with the truth. But as far as my parents and telling the bahai faith Im a lesbian, I definitely do not feel a rush to do that yet....maybe not ever. You know that Bahai's don't condemn gays, lesbians, out of all religions they accept them but there are of course rules as in no marriage and no sexual contact of any kind. I have no intention of spending the rest of life with another woman because I just don't see happiness in that. I am.....a different kind of gay. I've broken the whole sexual contact thing but now am trying to do my own making up for that by remaining celibate which I have done so for the past year. Lets face it, NO REAL religion will EVER FULLY accept Gays or Lesbians and thats just it plain or simple, even if the next prophet should bring his message early with a new religion I am positive that religion will STILL not accept Gays or Lesbians. It's sad but true. It's a hard road to walk, learning to find appreciation in the opposite sex again, little things at a time, that keep growing and hopefully will lead to attraction and maybe it will spark an interest and maybe I will find a guy to fall in love who knows.I am willing to change and I find happiness in this, I hope you all find your happiness and middle ground with the faith as well.
