    I think Eugene’s resonates because even though I’m straight - some of us have been beaten down to nothing by our religion, culture, and people in general.

      I think queer only covers sexuality, right? She’s trans, but I admit I myself didn’t realize it for a long time either. Either way she’s hilarious

    I love both coming out videos, but I love Dan’s more only because it’s comedic. Comedy always has put a smile on my face. It’s my anti-depressant.

    • Lemon Girl

      I also think both are great but I disagree with you because the other one is more serious and so creative and that’s what I love about it.

    I was extremely lucky that I have such caring parents who are CONSTANTLY taking in kids under their wings that can't tell their parents. I figured out because my first date was a girl. Didn't know what Bisexual at the time was but I knew I also liked guys. Well, we were driving one day and I was talking about me girlfriend who I hadn't told we were dating, and my mom just looked up and went "Do you have a crush on Jay.... Do you like girls?" And while I froze, she was just like "Okay! As long as you're happy." And she told my dad later. I've gained that attitude and I've met so many amazing people in the community that don't have what I have, so it's nice to see them light up when my parents call them by pronouns or don't care who they date. If I could do one thing all my life, it would be opening doors for people who need them so they can just talk or even just get a hug.

    I came out to my mom when I was 13 via email. she didn't believe me and said it was just a phase and still doesn't believe me because I have only ever been in relationships with men. bi erasure is a thing, and it's soooo fucking destructive.

    • Jess Philpott
      Jess Philpott 6 months ago +3

      People have a habit of seeing bisexuality as a 'phase' or as a way of just 'experimenting' with sex when you're younger, because apparently you should only be attracted to one gender. My mother has always been an ally of the LGBT community, but I felt like I could never be truly honest with her because I was worried she'd still be like everyone else that doesn't accept bisexuality. I realized I was bi at 15. It's been almost 14 years and I still haven't officially come out to her. I'm not sure if she realises and i still have that worry in the back of my mind.
      I really hope that things improve for you. 🌈

    Now that Phil's out, they HAVE to react to that. It doesn't seem fair if they don't. Dan has nearly 10 million views on his coming out video and so much support from everywhere, but Phil's support is so little compared to it, it makes me cry. Where's the love for Phil?

    • quoshtard

      They most likely filmed this before Phil was out so I can imagine the “GOD DAMMIT” from behind the scenes like “we should have waited to film AFTER”

    When I told my mom, "I think I'm bisexual" She said, "questioning?" And then I said I didn't know- And then she said, "well whatever you are. I'll love you no matter what" That made me feel awkward but glad. Idk what I am now but I'm wondering what my dad would think of everything

  • Ana Maria Cratib

    Its intresting how Eugene has made a statement with his coming out. How gender roles affects our life and our self image. Not just gender roles too, religion and expectations from society. Be you. Do you. Be happy.

    Ok so it took me the whole episode for me to realize the older women was trans I just didn't think about it🤷‍♀️ so I got a bit confused and the it hit me her daughter's call her mom at first I just thought "why wouldn't they" then I was like "OH SHES TRANS that makes sense" like it probably shouldn't of been that big of a realization but she started talking about the trans community later in the video and it hit me so thought I would share me being silly😂

    ive never gotten so mad and upset before in my life , i hate the society we live in . there are so many good things but the bad things out weigh them and this is a huge example of it . people can't even love themselves at first , they HAVE to be beaten and almost broken till the can BARELY start being themselves but they have to SECOND GUESS THEMSELVES for a huge amount of time . ALSO NO ONE IS THE SAME so some people arent lucky enough to even make it to the time of self acceptance .
