barranca, I am truly sorry to hear that you were bullied at school.
I am not gay but I was also bullied for many years at school. Why? Because I was small, unable to defend myself and the fact that I just wanted to get on with my work so I could leave with some half decent grades.
I am not homophobic and I have nothing against gay people, but the point I am trying to make is, yes, I did have many bad experiences at school, but I have not allowed these past experiences to turn me into a bitter person.
I understand your plight and I do sympathise, but at the same time, I feel that you have somehow allowed these experiences to sour your outlook on this subject. I sincerely do not mean this badly.
