I don't know if that kind of cliquey-ness will ever end. It seems to be part of our desire to belong and immature ways to implement it by not giving others a chance.

But I don't believe I have a deep perspective about how that applies to sexual preference. I can see that it is more complicated. But the similarities are feeling left out if you don't fit the stereotype and wishing others could behave differently.

I think maybe everyone can relate to that. Sending hope that new attitudes of kindness and acceptance are formed for you and others.
You definitely get it now!
Thank you for your best wishes!

It is kind of like high school, but then at least feels deeper because there is potentially the added layer of sexual and/or romantic tendencies along with even purely platonic tendencies.
And then, depending on the person and situation, it isn't necessarily one thing. It could be one isn't a bear enough and one isn't a certain race.

This could be despite even if you have so many other great characteristics such as living independently, being your own person, not interfering negatively on others, and just being able to hold your own.
