I will not have to calculate the dangers of showing affection to my partner in public.

I don't have to worry about finding a doctor or therapist who will understand my experiences.

If someone is rude to me, I don't have to consider whether or not it is because of my sexual identity.

I can travel freely never having to worry about the way my sexuality will be regarded in another country.

My behavior does not reflect on people who identity as heterosexual.

I don't worry about telling my landlord/employer about my sexuality. It is assumed I am a heterosexual.

I will never be stared at for slow dancing with my partner.

I know my sexuality will always be mirrored in course material at school.

I will never have to question whether or not to interrupt someone using offensive language connected to my sexuality.

People will never assume my sexual preferences are connected to abuse or illness.

When I speak about my heterosexuality no one will accuse me of pushing my agenda onto others.

I can check into a hotel with my partner and not be asked why we are sharing a bed.

I don't have to defend my existence because others find it false.

I will never be told that my lifestyle is inappropriate for children to learn about.
