it’s really weird that people think lesbians are more widely accepted by society than other non-straight identities… even just having a short haircut or god forbid wearing an outfit that’s not intrinsically associated with femininity gets men calling you d*ke in the streets, especially if you ignore their previous harassment. straight men like to jerk off to lesbian porn because it’s catered to their gaze, and they sure as hell get a kick out of watching two hot girls kissing at the bar because they assume it’s for their enjoyment, but when they realise it’s not, nor was it an invitation for a ~threesome or being able to ~watch, then you see how they really feel about it… lesbian porn being a popular choice doesn’t stop homophobia
I grew up in a poly household. My mother was married to two men who loved her dearly and they were the best of friends. I use past tense due to the fact that one of my fathers passed away a few years back.
I grew up in one of the most stable, loving households I can imagine. I had tons of support from all three of my parents, I never felt alone, and I never felt confused about my parents relationship.
Were other people confused when I told them about my parents? Sure. Did it take some time for them to understand my parents relationship? Yep. And the reaction I got every single time from other kids once they understood? “That’s so awesome!”
Growing up in a poly house did not hurt me, confuse me, or make my life difficult. It sure as hell wasn’t abusive.
