I overheard the following during the college camp this past weekend:
“And then they get a longer break than we do? That’s so gay.”
If you happen to experience something that’s to your distaste, please leave homosexuality out of it. There’re many other adjectives that are far more capable of allowing you to express your dissatisfaction in all its colour and texture without having to cause offense and, unwittingly or otherwise, further entrenching homophobia.
So, I’m (hopefully) gonna be facing these four people this Saturday:
They look friendly enough in this pic - well, bar Randall (center) - but they’ve got some pretty sharp tongues.
I’m gonna be singing Alicia’s If I Ain’t Got You with the chorus in Spanish.
Wish me luck.
When I was 13, around the time I came out, I thought about writing a drama series based on my life’s events.
I wanted to call it “Sidestepping.com”.
