(Quick note: With the help of dear friends and family, I've been in pretty intentional discernment about doing what I'm doing right now - that is, coming out of the closet - for about six months; and I've been in "passive" discernment about it for much longer. So the timing of this has almost nothing to do with the fact that Dan Savage called out people like me on his podcast this week. But in any event: there you go, Dan. One formerly closeted bi guy, joining the fight.)
But I don't want to do that anymore. I want to stop doing it for the sake of my own authenticity. And I want to stop doing it in some small hope of helping other folks - especially young folks who also don't conform to the cultural assumptions regarding sexual orientation - to feel authentic and valid in their own skin.
