“I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.”
every time i read “straight people” i automatically picture the pixies from fairly odd parents
These kind of posts make me think bad of gay people. If you want to talk about how straight people are “closed-minded” then just look at this post. How do they expect to ever be respected if they constantly talk about straight people in this way. It really irritates me when I see posts like these.
I’m pretty sure that a lot of straight people think we all know each other. I wore a gay shirt into a gas station and this guy got really excited and announced that he has one gay friend in Maryland. How do you even answer that I’ve never even been to Maryland
