I used to get panic attacks every time I saw this out lesbian girl that was cute. I was raised Catholic but I can't remember if I was told being gay is a sin or not...but I do know that I had lots of shame whenever I like made my girl sims make out 🤣🤣 we just never spoke about sexuality and lots of homophobia in the older generations. Anyway I think the anxiety was absolutely some inner shame being triggered. I don't get it anymore I think loads of therapy, meditation, prayer and talking to people helped. I know it's so uncomfortable and hard though 😭
Do you identify as a lesbian? I think OP is struggling with SOOCD rather than internalized homophobia so your comment might be a little triggering.
