Is it really so bad to just not tell someone about your sexuality? I mean...is it really necessary to enlighten the whole world? To be honest I think that in some situations it's appropriate to just not say anything.
Sorry, this all springs from my current frustration. I'm staying with a family right now while doing a service project, and the youngest son in the family is extremely conservative. (Can we say poster child for the republicans...) He was making comments tonight about how the amendment should be passed and whatnot, and my stomach just tied up in knots. I hate this! I hate have to come out all over again in almost every new environment I find myself. It just is so draining. Some people would say that it's my responsibility to always come out and raise awareness and everything, but I really do just get tired of it! I just want to be normal and go about my business and not be an activist every moment of every day.
Some people may see this attitude as selfish or naive or I don't know what else...but at this moment I don't really care. Sometimes I think silence is necessary to maintain my sanity. If this is passing or whatever people call it...oh well. I am who I am and I don't think I need to announce it to the whole world.
