So. Today, on the bus, I was sitting between 2 friends.
One, on my left, said "So, have you told your mom you're gay yet?"
Me: "Closer every day, but not quite"
Guy on right: "Wait, you're really gay?"
Me: *Dumbfounded look*
It has been mentioned, multiple times, by me and other people, that I'm gay in front of him. However, he apparently he thought I and other people were joking. Every time.
On that bus ride, he asked me if I was serious. 4 times.
What sort of straight guy makes jokes that they're gay multiple times and never actually denies that they're gay?
People have been thinking for the whole year that T is gay. He acts like it. More than I do, I think. But nobody believes me when I openly say I'm gay. Weird.
Do I need to get a lisp for them to believe me? A billion rainbows? The one I already wear isn't enough? Do I need a boyfriend?
Ooh, and it also turns out that this friend is a homophobe.
Oh gawd. Now that I think of it, this is most likely the case for uber Christian, one of my best friends. He might not have made the connection that I wasn't lying whenever I say I'm gay.
I can only hope he's not a homophobe too. He's one of my best friends.
