Okay, as someone who is trying to live a virtuous life while dealing with same sex attraction, one of my biggest problems is coming across LGBTQ+ members in the media. I am a teenager and I frequently use social media and in the past I have followed a lot of people in that community because I felt I could relate to them. I also grew to like them for their personalities. It got to the point where more than half of the people I followed were somehow in this community. The problem is, now that I am trying to live a virtuous life, do I go ahead and start unfollowing and unsubscribing these people because of their sexuality, or do I just ignore that part of their lives and focus on the other reasons why I like them? Also, when I come across the stories of other people in the community, is it wrong to sympathize with them?
Btw, just some extra information if it helps: I’m female and I feel that I am (“was”) pansexual which is like bisexual aka liking people of both genders.
