Who honestly gives a fuck, his whole existence is shaped by his sexuality which shows how shallow his personality is. Just be gay, why does it have to define everything about you

Ever since the first time I watched my first try guys video, I knew eugene was gay. I understand that it is a very big deal to publicly announce your sexuality. (Note, I have no experience in this whatsoever) but me, gay, straight, bi, pan, and any other type of love is just that.. LOVE. No one should be judged for it. I think you are a fantastic person eugene. Live and love life!

Besutiful video. So proud to see you becoming your true self. No matter how old you get, living in secret is no fun. As someone who suffers from depression, I don't like to use the word "happy" to describe my state of being. One word that I prefer to use is "content". For years, I used the word "happy" to mask my feelings of depression, and it only made things worse knowing that no one else knew, but me. But the word "content" makes me picture myself giving me a hug (sometimes my mum giving me a hug, cause I love that feeling too). A second word I prefer to use is "satisfied". Sometimes, I ask myself "am I satisfied with what I have accomplished so far?" and I always want my answer to be yes. But I'm not going to spend my life chasing one word, when I have two better descriptors already. I may reach some point of true happiness, but it's okay if that's not today, it's okay if that's not tomorrow. It's even okay if I have to wait until I'm on my deathbed. But for now, I am content and satisfied in my life, and that's what matters. So, Eugene (even though you probs won't see this), instead of asking yourself "am I happy?", try asking yourself "am I satisfied/content with what I have accomplished?"

I understand dude, youre coming out as gay, just like the name of your channel says, you "try" REALLY hard for people to like you. And youre coming out as gay because you want people to empathize(?) more with you, because you want to be a special little snowflake. You want to be a part of the LGBT community because no other group wants you in with them. Next time, try to love yourself, because lying to yourself is not self love. Btw, not even the LGBT community wants you, you piece of shit of a human being.

I am profoundly appreciative that he choose black to represent love. Often white is seen as love and purity and unblemished but his choice to represent these things with the color black is very forward thinking

Tbh.. that’s my biggest fear as well Eugene. I can relate to just the exact same thing you’re going through. I’m bisexual, but my whole family is pretty homophobic when it comes to certain things and well, then accept others, except their family. Sometimes they go against it, but it’s a scary thing. It hurts me mentally and emotionally. I just wish for a day where they can just hear me out and actually understand, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. It’s scary, knowing that if I come out, everyone will disown me. The only person that supports me is my older sister, and she’s the only one that knows. I just don’t know how to be me, in such a closed up space where you get judged for things and it hurts even when you just try to hide it and all you can do is listen to others ridicule others for being themselves, who they are. You’re an inspiration Eugene, you’re incredibly amazing. You’re my motivation everyday. I don’t know what I would do without you tbh. ❤️

Eugene you did such a wonderful job. I know how hard it is to fit into the Asian standard of being the perfect son or daughter. Our parents and community are so stuck in the past that accepting anything outside of what they consider to be "normal" would be unheard of. Continue being the awesome self that you are and know that we all LOVE and ACCEPT you for YOU, not your sexuality. ❤

They were cool till they got with the times and we’re all the sudden LGBTQ+🤢🤮🏳️‍🌈=👎🏻 you can think of it like legos two bricks with pegs on the same side don’t fit together, two bricks with holes on the same side don’t fit but two bricks with a peg and a hole fit it’s just how the system works and it was Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve nor was it Ida and Eve it’s just not right and if you disagree with this comment I don’t care it’s my opinion and you milenials are about respecting people’s opinions(being gay or bi or whatever) then respect mine Unsubscribed

Eugene you will find the happiness that you deserve. Even if it isn’t how or when you want/think it will happen. It happens in every different ways and in all the times we least expect. And as much as we want to, we can’t control how or when it happens. That is life though, puzzle pieces of happiness forming together and some don’t fit right so we push them aside, but they will come back and fit together. You are lucky to have a strong support system right now and if those people disown you, fall back on your loyal friends. If they truly love and care about you, they’ll come back. If they don’t, you don’t need them.

Also as a Korean gay transgender man, it took me awhile to open myself up and obviously I fit Eugene well since being in a culture filled with conservative backgrounds and just not really open minded are just really make me feel less about me which I just feel like I had to be out last year since I been in the closet for too long

Thank you for making this video explaining your masterpiece. Personally as someone that is straight I don't always understand the struggles of the lgbtq community. Thank you for allowing me so see into the life and I'm sorry that you ever had to deal with the fear of those close to you not accepting you.

Whilst not gay, I came out to my mother as bisexual last year. I can't tell my stepdad. My dad came out to me and then I came out to him. It was weird. I'm so happy that I got to hear Eugene's thoughts and process on his video.

Eugene I know you may not see this but the amount of people and fans that love and support you always outweighs the hate all we ask is break the walls down be you and be happy we don't want you perfect or pretending we only want you to be the real you and in doing that and saying screw what everyone else thinks you will truly be happy and that is all that anyone who loves you will want for you

even tho i may not like some gay people. I still love Eugene and even tho you may not be the happiest person bc your race or being gay your still an amazing person Eugene and in my opinioni dont think you have to be better just bc your an asian and your gay you dont always have to be good at every thing or at leat in my opinion bc your not human if your bad at something but ik that may not be the same for every one but your still an amazing person and alot of people still love you even tho your gay
