A closeted netizen asks his friends to not use gay terms on his Facebook

  • Netizen pleads everyone to stop using mare, miss, bakla, and other LGBTQ terms while commenting on his Facebook posts
  • Said netizen hasn’t yet come out as gay to his family
  • One reason to be closeted was the lack of acceptance from socially conservative parents
  • The risk of attempting suicide for lesbian, gay, or bisexual youth is high in unsupportive social environments

An unnamed Twitter pleaded for people to stop using mare, miss, bakla, and other LGBTQ terms while commenting on his Facebook posts because he was hiding his true identity from his family.

His friends, who might have been using the terms without malice, could have tipped his family off about his real gender preference and force him to come out when he isn’t ready,

There are several reasons some LGBTQ are still hiding in the closet. One is the fear of victimization from family members and lack of acceptance from socially conservative parents.

In school, they can be a victim of bullying by other students and religion can also be a factor especially when religious beliefs are irreconcilable with one’s sexual identity.

A study from Oregon found out that the risk of attempting suicide for lesbian, gay, bisexual youth was 20% greater in unsupportive social environments of an LGBTQ person compared to LGBTQ-supportive environments.

Netizens on social media also shared their insight about “closeted,” a term used for those who hide their gender identity.
