“Hi, I have something that’s been bothering me for a bit and I was wondering if I could get an opinion from the community.
Years ago, I first identified as ace(later I realized I fall under demisexual) and when I was telling my friend about this(who is gay), I made a joke about how I should invite all my friends over for a “coming out party” and he replied with “well you can’t ‘come out’ because you aren’t gay” and today this it bothers me.
It doesn’t seem fair because I only identify as a demisexual (though I am in a heterosexual relationship right now) but for some reason I can’t “come out” or am still considered “too straight”? I don’t know. I’m confused and wanted to know what others have to say.
Thank you”
