    Remember that time around freshman year

    when you denied the gay within you to your best buds? Then you turn around, and its 4 years later, and those same best friends are just as extremely homo as your little rainbow-tootin' self? Pepper ridge farm remembers.

    I'm not. But I know that

    if I was, I would prefer an Asian or Latin girl. They're very pretty. I realized a few years ago that the reason why I didn't really like to be around Asian girls...was because they are so PRETTY to me. I guess it was a disturbing thought for a straight girl to have. But I...

    I'm a lesbian but thing is with lesbians,

    some love skinny girls and some love curvy girls. But for me, I don't care what size a girl is, if I fall for her then I fall for her. That's how it goes.

    Some men seem confused about what it is to be a

    lesbian. I think its time for some education. 1) being a lesbian doesn't mean we hate men. In fact, I enjoy the company of men in the same way that straight men enjoy the company of other men. 2) men are not lesbians. I don't care if you enjoy women the way we do. I get it...

    Hey! So this is my story.

    I grew up in a very conservative Christian home. I am a Christian myself, a very strong one actually. I grew up hearing all about how bad gay is. My family is 100% against it, which sucks because I love my family so so very much. So I know I could never come out of the closet...

    I can't come out of the closet

    for a few more years because my parents are paying for my college and I don't know if they would cut me off. I think they would have a bad reaction. My girlfriend and I are living in secret. Any encouragement to hold on to for this next year?

    The Life And Times Of Little Brother...
