So I have a friend that I've known for quite a while, in fact I've even volunteered with her a couple of times, and I question her sexuality.
In classes I have with her, she's always talking about this one girl and how cool and awesome she is, and occasionally she'll tell other girls that they look cute, or give them other various complements.
Now, I know it's normal to give compliments to people, but they way she does it, it's like she's hitting on them or flirting. And there have been so many signs, so many. I'm almost completely sure she's lesbian.
And I'm fine with that, but I don't think her religion is. She never talks about being attracted to boys, or men for that matter..... all she talks about is girls in our grade and how pretty they are.... it's a bit awkward on my end...
But I'm getting off the point. Her family goes to church quite often, and is quite ardent on the fact that they go by the "Bible rules" which of course translate into homosexuality being wrong. However, I've seen the looks she's given to a few girls here and there, and I've heard the ways she talks about them. It's not something any hetero girl would say about another chick, but would she/will she ever come clean about being a possible lesbian? Probably not.
I think that's so sad. No one should deny a part of themselves due to what the old testament said. I'm afraid to talk to her about it, and I don't want to risk her friendship by her getting offended because she's made her point a few times on how much she thinks homosexuality is wrong--- but she's lying to herself. I'm almost certain that she is. Why can't she see past the many religious dogmatisms that have been around for ages? Why do so many have to deny themselves of something that is so pure, such as love or happiness because someone tells them that what they feel inside of them is wrong?
