I decided to reintroduce myself seeing as it's been a while since I was on this site but I'm kind of thinking of coming back. So instead of griping about how it's changed, I'm going to try the new beginnings approach. ^_^
I'm 17, pansexual and a senior in high school in a small Massachusetts town. I've been a thorn in the side of my peers for the sake of queer rights ever since I came out in the beginning of freshman year, and now proudly help run our small but enthused GSA with my sister, who also was on oasis years ago. We also organized our Day of Silence last year in about 4 days and still managed to pull in 75 official participants, so we’ve got big dreams for this year, including an awareness week full of activities that our principle actually recommended. Also my sister and I (if you haven‘t noticed we tend to act as a whole :P ) run various workshops, educational classes and lessons and health fair booths on the subject of Self Injury, and might be joining something called Venture in that regard, which is kind of like starting a mini business apparently?
Now that the resume looking part is over, lets get down to the important stuff that actually matters because it’s what I’ll probably wind up bitching about. I’m currently in a relationship with a nice boy named mark who I started talking to about a month ago but have known forever because we have both lived in the same town our entire lives. This is probably the fastest and most teenage relationship I’ve ever been in and I really like it but it has it’s issues. For instance, I have some only partially resolved issues with men I’ve been trying to deal with for the last few years. They used to scare the shat out of me. Now it’s more selective, or I wouldn’t be with Mark. Also, I am trying to figure out how to explain to my beloved (really, not sarcastic at all) mummy that the boy I brought home is a transvestite. She accepted the fact he was bi, and I‘ve been working her up from there, starting with the fact he wears nail polish. We will see how the skirts go over, I guess. On the upside, he is a complete sweetheart. He kissed me goodbye yesterday and it made me completely happy, Haha. The cool thing about our relationship too is we started out as friends, which makes talking easy and we are on the same level about a lot of things, like we both thing boy/girlfriend relationships are messed up so we are just skipping the labels and just taking things as they come. That made me happy too, because I completely saw that as being an issue but surprise surprise he was the one who brought it up!
So yes, I am done waxing ineloquently about my love life now and will leave you in peace, thanks if you actually read that and I’m glad to be back!
