Yup. Same gender or not, society builds up a lot of insecurities in all of us. There is a great article on HE about self love. It’s not until you face who you are deep down and accept yourself including all the things that might be regarded as deficiencies in the eyes of society that you can truly be at peace. I always return to this quote by Carl Jung:

“What if I should discover that the poorest of the beggars and the most impudent of offenders are all within me; and that I stand in need of the alms of my own kindness, that I, myself, am the enemy who must be loved — what then?

Then, as a rule, the whole truth of Christianity is reversed. There is then no more talk of love and long suffering. We say to the brother within us: Rocca, and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide him from the world. We deny ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves. And had it been God himself who drew near to us in this despicable form, we should have denied him a thousand times before a single cock had crowed.”

This quote is probably the most powerful quote I know of. Many crimes and suicides have been commited by people who would rather commit terrible things than accept their own inner rascal. This is the ultimate test of life.
