Something happens here, later in the plot.
Okay, so literally the only purple I have seen today other than my own is by one of the two out gay guys in my class (the other one’s ill, so I guess I can let that slide).
But basically I am sort of depressed at the lack of spirit here.
Post your purple so I can see the spirit of Tumblr, at least?
Except not physically.
You guys, I have to find more keys to stick on my necklace. That is exciting.
I intended to tell the guy for a while, and he walked in on me and Gary having a conversation about what defines a relationship. After getting frustrated at me asking him to define terms like relationship and romance, he asked what it was I was personally after, and it sort of went on from there, with me and Gary doing a joint explanation.
I think it went pretty well.
We moved onto talking about sexual boundaries, and he called me a sadistic bastard, but he slipped into male terminology so much easier than some of the other people I’ve told.
So yeah. He thinks I’m a freak for getting off on blood and pain, but seems pretty cool with the gender thing. =P
And when Gary was explaining it as being like if he woke up every morning with a vagina, the dude just sort of stared and asked how I coped. He was just so understanding about it even though he wanted to ask so many questions about everything (which is totally fine imo) and ugh everything just went really well and I’m happy for now okay.
They’re moving and all. Really, really moving.
But sometimes I just end up feeling like it won’t get better because I never had it that bad to start with.
I was never bullied for my sexuality or my gender because I hid it from most people and was lucky enough that the friends I confided in never betrayed my trust.
Am I terrified of what would happen if I ever told my family? Sure.
Does part of me still want my family to know? Fuck, yes. A thousand times yes.
But there are so many hundreds of amazingly strong queer people and supporters, and I end up feeling like too much of a coward to be allowed stand amongst them.
I haven’t done anything special.
Just lied to a tonne of folks.
