    My favorite concept from this episode was “the idea of repeatedly coming out.” As someone who identifies as being heterosexual, this is just widely assumed that everyone is until proven otherwise (which is messed up). This podcast opened my eyes to think more about how unfair it is to the people who are apart of the LBGTQ+ community–due to having to go through this process of coming out constantly. It isn’t like they can just have a huge parade with everyone they’ve ever met in their life to deliver the news in one swoop, it is an ongoing update they have to say again and again whenever they’re comfortable to tell the other people in their life. Also, thinking about that the members of this community may have to come out repeatedly because they’re not being believed about their sexuality is absolutely absurd to me. It also makes me recognize what additional stress these lovely people may be experiencing ontop of finally feeling comfortable to come out. .
