My loose tounge....

    So schools resume Monday. A couple of my friends play UNO in the lobby whilst chatting. I walk in and one of them (gay) says, "Stalker! Stalker!" jokingly. It's an inside joke if you will, one that references him catching me ogling at the pictures of a crush (a hottie whose gave me mixed signals all of last semestar). Then I declare defensively, "It was only once (that I checked out his myspace page - i do it everyday though)...I DON'T EVEN LIKE HIM ANYMORE." Then it hits me that 1) All my friends (str8 homophobic jocs) think I am as str8 as a rod. That 2) This is one homophobic environment and that 3) I'm deep in the closet. I look around fearfully, my heart literally in my mouth, and to my relief, no one who knows I'm gay is around.

    Why are you still in the closet?

    For me, "no mistakes were made" since nobody knew at that stage.

    daft question really Caslon, everyone has their life path and some are ready to take that turn and open the door and announce their sexuality to the world. Others are not.

    This fanatical stand up and be counted bullshit gets right on my tits, its not big its not clever and its not noble. Its as bad as the magazines outting people, I can only think its because as individuals we feel threatened unless we have a greater number shouting wahoo Im here from the rooftops!

    People should be more comfortable about themselves and quit worrying about wether others have their house in order to their standards

    Sahidy1) All my friends (str8 homophobic jocs) think I am as str8 as a rod. That 2) This is one homophobic environment


    where i am isn't necessarily homophobic, but my school is exceptionally small and word travels fast. while it might not be to the point where i'll get beaten up or anything, many people at my school would be exceptionally distant towards me. and in class sizes of 20 and many group projects and seminar style courses, i personally don't want to deal with my view points being judged based on my sexuality.

    i don't know Sahidy's full situation,

    - are you at a big enough school(if at a school) where if your friends drop you you'd be able to find new ones,
    - is there a decent support group available to you

    you say you're in orlando which could be to your advantage as it's a fairly large city, but take things at your pace.

    but out of curiosity, is the friend you said is gay, openly gay?
