    This is disappointing because I’m a girl and you’re the most attractive Try Guy.

    I kinda need some help right now and if anyone knows how, please let me know! Okay, so, I'm pansexual and haven't come out to my parents. I'm definitely coming out to my mom first because she is more open minded and has expressed her support (and also the fact that my dad and brother are a bit homophobic). But the thing is that she thinks being pansexual and bisexual are the same thing. So my problem is that I think my interaction will go something like this:
    Me: I'm pansexual
    Mom: what's that?
    Me: it means that I like girls, boys and everything in between.
    Mom: isn't that being bisexual?
    Me: no it's different. Like, I like people who aren't only those two genders.
    Mom: what?
    Me: like trans people or non-binary or anything else
    Mom: what's non-binary?
    I am willing to explain this stuff to my mom but I feel like it would be more difficult for me to come out while also having to explain who I could be interested in. My stepdad already knows because he watches my channel and saw a video of me talking about my girlfriend, but he hasn't brought it up, not really. He's supportive too tho. I'm really lucky to have them in my life and for them to be as accepting as they are but I'm not sure how to go about telling my mom. If there's nobody who can help then that's fine too. It's not your obligation to try and help me but if you're willing, it'd be appreciated. Thanks for listening I guess qwq

    Gods I can't wait until we can all just get on with our lives and videos/statements/media like this is completely unnecessary. None of this should f*cking matter. Be who you are, love who you want and just try not to hurt anyone. Why is this such a f*cking hard concept for some people to grasp?

    Eugene: “I knew I was gay since I was 11-12 and came out for the first time to my two best friends in high school” (But I kept saying I was bi for years and years and years to keep my “I am a simple, girl, I see Eugene on the thumbnail I click” fangirls happy and clicking for views) Gross 🤮 To betray your identity just so you can mislead viewers for money. 🤮🤮🤮

    What a great dang interview, thank you both. I feel like we as a society are taking steps like every week to get where being out and being fully present and open as a gay person is accepted. What's so great is it's not some single campaign leader or whatever it's a whole wide movement. And people like Hannah are having these conversations and telling the human story at the bottom of it all. Thank you for what you both do on this and being true and honest. When older people in the queer community express how shocked they are at how far we've come in so few years I feel truly lucky.

    Much like Eugene, my mom wouldn’t disown me but she doesn’t understand it very well. She thinks that I’m “obsessed with everything gay”, but I’m just proud of who I am.

    My thirteen year old son came out to his father and I last summer. This year we took him to Pride for the first time in our city. I have so much gratitude for people like the two of you for being transparent and honest . I hope he can see that he can be whoever he truly is, not just because his mama said so, but because people like you are out there changing our societal norms and making the world a better place for him.

    Oh darling, knew you were gay the first try guy episode. I've been waiting for you to come out for years, I'm so very happy and oddly undeservingly proud that you are confident and comfortable enough to trust us with this. Please if you have a secret bf (looking at you Zack with your secrets!) please have them join the try wives we are dying to see you happy and find someone who makes you happy. Not that you need that you can be happy all on your own but you know...we can dream for you

    This whole "Eugene coming out" thing has been kinda weird for me, I've always assumed he was openly gay. It was just really obvious, even if he never actually said it.
    I guess it finally removes the deniability he was holding onto internally, but from an outside perspective nothing is really different at all

    If you hadn’t added the music, I would not have cried, maybe. That was really nice actually. I just wanna thank all of the LGBTQ+ RUcliprs, you have changed a whole generation, not just into self accepting people, but into proud and self expressive people, and I love it! 🌈

    It sad you people are stupid. So called gay people have a sickness. They got something wrong in their heads. We use to have hospitals aka mental wards for these people. Even Hitler seen gayness was a sickness. Lined em up, bullet in the brain pan, problem solved.
    This is what wrong with this world. These people need help.

    I have yet to understand why it is necessary to publish and publicly PROFESS your private life and the idea that if you don’t do this you are unacceptable. It’s one thing to live as you want and do so publicly without anyone having the right to condemn you. My life is my own and I owe no excuse or duty to profess to anyone. If you call that living in a closet, well I call it living in a house and any nosy neighbor can kiss my ass.

    Eugene no offense but we always knew you were gay. I think none of us straight women wanted to accept it but we knew it, deep down in our hearts. Nonetheless, your coming out will go down in history

    I have the feeling though that some people use the word gay and the "coming out" to get attention. A lot of LGBTQ people always talk about how they were bullied by people that were extremely homophobic to them, but a few years later the bullies "come out" themselves. I'm not denying that some of them are, but from my experience, bullies bully because they don't get enough attention from the people they want attention from or some other underlying usually horrible issues ( getting beaten at home for example ). I'm straight so i don't now how it's like but it at least SEEMS that way to me.

    • Nightcore Daisuki
      Nightcore Daisuki 18 days ago

      If you mean Dan Howell's and Eugene's coming-out videos, yes the point was attention. Sharing their stories with the world, maybe impacting homophobic people who do it because they were raised that way but don't mind LGBTQ+ people after reflecting and thinking on that. Certainly impacting LGBTQ+ teenagers who feel alone, are not out of the closet and need someone they look up to telling them, that it is okay.
      As for the second part: psychological studies have indeed shown that a lot of bullies do that because of the fear to be bullied themselves. It still doesn't make it right and those bullies still behaved terribly and disgustingly. Just because they are LGBTQ+ themselves, it doesn't mean that they didn't behave homophobic - be it adapted homophobia of society or internalized homophobia of themselves. Bullies don't bully to get attention, they do it to get a certain type of attention and divert the potential of becoming the victim themselves to the people they are bullying. I personally - as a gay man myself - despise those closeted bullies that come out later on. Depends of course on the intensity of their bullying and whether they regret and apologise or not.
