Im glad you finally had the courage to talk to at least your friend. That was impressive of you. As for those bullies they should know that what happened to you could also happen to them and just because it did happened that doesn't make you any less of a man or that in any way mean you are a homosexual or anything of the kind. What your orientation is does not base itself on experiences but on your own beliefs and likes. If girls interest you then they do. If guys interest you then they do but no mayter what you are perfect. I am proud of you.
