I lost friends by just "Being"! I didn't have to come out. But I thought I was good at hiding it and I wasn't. What did Truman Capote say? " A fahg is a Homosexual (Or tran sexual) person who's just left the room!" They never say anything to your face, You only get to pick up on little things now and then.

If a person loses their acquaintances because of their sexuality, then they were never friends to begin with, and they're better off without these bigots.

But it feels so good to be loved by a real man! Oh and By the way, I would never "do" anyone. I'm a girl!

True! But it can get lonely without anyone. And you can't trust anyone in "Stealth" to acknowledge you, even though they may be dying to know you. It's too risky for them.
