Okay, so anyway, I'm in my school library, before homeroom, just surfing oasismag, when this kid I only kinda sorta know, who is sitting next to me, reads some of the titles of the threads, and he is like, "What kind of site is this?" and I tell him, "It's a gay youth site." And I tell him a bit about it and he suddenly asks, in an almost scared manner, "Are you gay?" And I say surprisedly (He doesn't know? How could he not?) "yeah. . ." And the first thing that comes out of his mouth is "Um, I'm straight." And I'm thinkin', *did I ask you?* Regardless, he launches into how "okay" he is with it (like it matters to me whether or not he approves), and how he used to live near San Francisco, and how he used to see tons of gay couples and how he saw the gay pride parade on TV, etc etc.
I swear, why is it when people find out I'm gay they like HAVE to tell me how they are straight but understanding. I don't mind a "Oh, cool." or a "I'm okay with it/I don't mind" But an entire sermon on how "uinderstanding he is??? Whatever. I laughed about it later. Most likely he was just nervous, and had never personally knew (or at least not recently) or he had never had anyone answer yes to his question.
