Yeah, a lot of my heterosexual friends say that too, and admittedly I have quite a few ‘girl crushes’ but for me it’s more ‘wow I’d love to look like them’ or that I love their clothes etc.. I think when people say that they’d turn gay for someone, they don’t really imagine having sex with them etc.. (but that’s just me).
To me you sound reasonably young so I wouldn’t worry about being confused, I think there’s way too much pressure for teenagers to define their sexuality as it is. It sounds like you could be bisexual though or even gay.
My advice is to keep your mind open, if you start to feel feelings for a girl then allow yourself to, the same with boys. At the end of the day it’s a natural thing, so thinking about it too much will just make you more confused. Hope that helps.
Today India criminalized homosexuality. Upholding a ridiculous piece of legislation from the 19th fucking century, our Supreme Court has made the lifestyles of millions of Indians, including mine, illegal. In a country where marital rape in legal, and rape carries a prison sentence of 7 years, consensual sex between individuals of the same gender amounts to a minimum of 10 years in prison. The Supreme Court, which is supposed to protect the rights of minorities from the majority-controlled legislature, has conveniently handed the baton over to India’s decrepit Parliament, which spends more time hurling furniture across party lines than it does making laws.
The revival of this disgusting, colonial law has made a criminal of me and millions of others. For a nation which cannot stop emphasizing equality in its constitution, it’s doing a fucked up job of preserving it.
Well I think you’re old enough to know if you are a lesbian or you aren’t, or at least to know if you have feelings for girls. The real question is do you have a doubt because you’re not sure of your feelings or because of your age?
That said there’s no pressure to define your sexuality right now. But I think that if you want to date or you feel burdened by it then (if you feel comfortable about it) come out to people you trust. At the end of the day if you find out later that you’re bisexual, or somehow you don’t like girls then you saying that you’re a lesbian isn’t set in stone. The most important thing is that you’re happy and that you feel comfortable with who you are.
Good luck :)
