Today, me and Uber Christian played leapfrog. I've never really talked to him about what he thinks about my gayness before, and so it's a relief that he's not like this one guy who today just said "GAY!" as I walked by then ran away.
We're supposed to go to Mcdonald's tomorrow for a school orchestra thing. I really don't wanna go, because it's long, I'll miss swimming, which seriously causes me extreme emotional distress (I wish I could always be swimming. I'm always so happy there), and I'll have to eat nasty fatty Mcdonald's food. Bad and bad for you.
Now, to the point of this journal entry. Do you think it would be better if everyone had their sexuality, whatever it may be, right on their forehead for everyone to see?
Back when racism was in style, everyone knew you were black. Here, the good part is that people generally only know if you want them too. The bad part is you have to go through the stress of coming out, because the message is greatly intensified if it's dramatized.
People wouldn't react to someone they knew were gay on sight as they would to someone who has a long, overly dramatized coming out.
