NO! You are a beautiful a lovely person for just being YOU! No matter who you are, or what you identify as, LGBTQ or straight, you're an amazing person. Some people may not agree with this - and that is their opinion, but please, NEVER change who YOU are. YOU are AMAZING. Nothing is wrong with you, nothing at all. Love is love and perhaps some people won't understand that because they think love is between a man and a women, but no matter who you love, remember to do what makes YOU happy! #LoveIsLove! Remember; we love you. You're cared about it. Someone out there is waiting for you

No! Definitely! It is totally normal although most of the older generations do not accept LGBTQ+ people. Nowadays, the society is becoming more and more accepting towards the LGBTQ+ community and that is how it should be.

No there isn't. No matter what other people tell you, there is nothing "wrong" with you for being different to them. If anything, there's something wrong with THEM for not accepting you.

Don't EVER think that there is something wrong with you for being LGBTQ!! I honestly adore all people, especially gays. You may be made fun of but hey! It's better than being the same old straight person (and there's nothing wrong with straight either) embrace your differences & if you can come out as an LGBT than I have nothing less of total respect for you & every other LGBTQ.

Hello there :). No, of course nothing is wrong with you being LGBTQ. It's a natural thing. I believe you came asking this question because you'r surroundings are not supportive of LGBTQ and you hear alot of denial of that in the media? I may be wrong, however, in case I got it right I need to point out that people are hurting innocent animals, making pointless wars over the stupidest of reasons, some people believe it or not still do vampire hunts..... It may be a bad example, but my point is people are prone to making stupid decisions, choices and mostly being stupid overall :D,therefore you may not instantly be accepted where you live... That does not mean something's wrong with you. I hope that helped... Best regards, with respect, Corvius

There is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+. Nothing at all. There is nothing wrong with being "different" than how society thinks you should be. While it is more accepted today than earlier in history, it is still looked down upon in some places, but there is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+.

Not at all! However, there is still quite the stigma concerning members of the LGBTQ+ community. For those who are fortunate enough to live in an area that is rather open-minded, cherish it! Not many people are as lucky. For many, identifying as LGBTQ+ is not only "wrong" but illegal, and being open about it can put them in very real harm. If this happens to be your situation just try and remain safe, know who you can trust, and access resources that are available to you, but most importantly, know that there is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+

The only people who should be judged for what they believe or feel are the people who tell LGBTQ people that they have something wrong with them.

Of course not! As someone who is bisexual, I can say that we are just as normal and deserving of a good and happy life as anyone else.
April 19th, 2015 6:57pm
There is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ, just like there is nothing wrong with being heterosexual/straight. It is important to remember that you are who you are and that you were born this way.
August 25th, 2015 7:18pm
No, there is nothing wrong with you. Society has created a very limited idea of love and anything outside of the "normal" scares people because they don't know what to make of it.

No, there is nothing wrong with you at all. There is no reason why you should feel that you have to be in the majority when it comes to your sexual orientation or gender identity. This is your life you are living, you get to make it what you want. You will be much happier if you can learn to be true to yourself.
November 17th, 2015 7:54pm
ABSOLUTELY NOT! We are all unique individuals and we are all attracted to people differently. Everyone is into different things and activities. As long as nobody is hurt then it is only your business who you are attracted to and what you do.
November 24th, 2015 7:01pm
No. You cannot help how you are. If your attracted to the same sex, you can't help who you love. If your bisexual, you can't help being attracted to both, and if your transgender you can't help who you really are.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with LGBTQAP+. You should just be yourself and be proud of who you are.
January 19th, 2016 6:06pm
Absolutely not! We are human, we are here to love, be loved, and share love amongst all life. We are the exact same person even if we love animals, men, women and transgender.
February 8th, 2016 7:37pm
Absolutely not, my friend. Your brain just works differently then some people. All of our brains work differently! You were born this way, and it's such a beautiful way to be. Never let anyone tell you that something is wrong with you.
February 22nd, 2016 10:02pm
Absolutely not. Nothing is weird or abnormal about being LGBTQ. Just because the media has dictated hetero-normativty for years, does not mean that you aren't normal.
March 21st, 2016 6:43am
No nothing is wrong with you. Different people have different sexual choices. As long as the choice that you made is the right 1 and you feel happy about it.
May 17th, 2016 4:11pm
No, definitely not. It is who you are and how you were born, there is definitely nothing wrong about being true to yourself
May 31st, 2016 1:49pm
There is nothing wrong with you for being LGBTQ+ you are who you are and you like who you like. Just because it isn't the "norm" doesn't mean it is wrong
June 3rd, 2016 6:37pm
no sweetheart there is nothing wrong with you. There will be people with a different opinion but you know what? their opinions have death tolls so they can shove their opinion where the sun doesn't shine. there is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+. It is not not normal it just isn't common. There is nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+.
July 19th, 2016 7:09pm
No. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you for being LGBTQ. Who you love, or are attracted to in no way defines your worth as an individual.
August 23rd, 2016 2:45am
Absolutely not! Being LGBTQ is an uncontrollable, natural thing, and there's nothing wrong with that! Being LGBTQ is just like being straight or cisgendered, you just have different preferences! There's nothing wrong with minority races just because they are not white!
September 6th, 2016 11:17am
Not at all. Being in the LGBTQ category is as normal as being heterosexual or in the right gender. There is nothing to worry for :)
October 25th, 2016 1:44am
It's nothing wrong with you, ok? You are totally fine, you're just trying to get some support, it's nothing wrong with that.
June 13th, 2017 12:02am
Of course not! You are who you are. Being LGBTQ is just who you are. There are always gonna be people who take issue with that but it doesn't make it wrong for you to be LGBTQ.
July 11th, 2017 5:43am
There is nothing wrong with you. This is who you are and who you feel like you are and who you want to be. You should always be yourself and be who you want to be.
September 26th, 2017 11:12pm
Definitely not. Being LGBTQ is wonderful and doesn't mean you are 'broken' or 'wrong' at all. If you feel you are doing the eight thing and no one is getting hurt, then you are not wrong. Being who you are and being happy is not wrong. You are an amazing human and there is definitely nothing wrong with you at all.
