We live in a society that likes to label everyone and anything, especially when it comes to sexuality. This means that, in addition to all the traumatizing changes that come with puberty, we’re expected to know and identify our sexual orientations as we reach “maturity,” whatever that means. For some, understanding sexuality isn’t as simple as watching a Ryan Gosling movie and realizing you’re attracted to men (particularly ones with abs for days).
Struggling to know and understand one’s sexual orientation is an emotionally taxing experience, perhaps one that many of us can relate to but rarely discuss. In case you needed some online support, Whisper is here to give you some perspective.
