K'ssandra, you are choosing to be alone and miserable. I think you are limiting your own happiness by putting the blame for your emotional well being, or lack thereof, onto others. Coercing people to accept or like you because of or inspite of your sexual behavior/preference/orientation is not the way to win friends and influence people. Culturally homosexuality has only really come "out of the closet since the 1980's" It came out badly because of the bath house gays dying in record numbers and "in your face" activists who scared little children and their parents. Unless the LGBT community stops scaring parents and calling them bullies, because parents feel they are protecting their children from sexual deviants, this will be a problem.
