If you are in or have had a same-sex/similar gender romantic or sexual relationship or have had interpersonal relations as or with a trans or otherwise gender nonconforming person, how do you feel your relationship have or have not been accepted by people around you, like family and friends?

Have you seen or experienced others or yourself in heterosexual, opposite-sex/gender and/or cis gender relationships get acceptance you have not?

Do you feel that the standards for acceptance are the same or have been different? If they have been different, what do you feel the difference in standards of acceptance have been? For example, do you feel like how healthy and/or loving relationship have been have been equally considered with both straight/cis or not-straight/not-cis relationships or not?

Have you personally experienced that heterosexual, opposite-sex or cis gender relationships do or don't seem to get more automatic acceptance expressly because they're those kinds of relationships?
