FEEL­ING JUDGED

Girlfriend - - GF ADVICE -

I just re­cently found out a girl in my class I thought was re­ally cool, doesn’t like me be­cause I’m gay! Ac­cord­ing to a mu­tual bestie, she’s re­ally un­com­fort­able around me and wor­ried about me hav­ing a crush on her! I don't want to con­front her about it, but it re­ally both­ers me. Ev­ery­body at my school has been so ac­cept­ing and has never had a prob­lem with me be­ing a les­bian, so I have no idea how I’m sup­posed to deal with this kind of ho­mo­pho­bia.

Dis­ap­pointed

You need to con­front her, but in a nice way. You have sec­ond-hand in­for­ma­tion so you need to dis­cover whether she is ho­mo­pho­bic or there is some mis­un­der­stand­ing. It’s great to hear the ma­jor­ity of your school friends have been sup­port­ive. It is not cool to judge any­one on who they love. Act­ing pos­i­tively will make it harder for her to feel neg­a­tively about you. Hey, you might even change her mind on the sub­ject!
