    If you're gay, its a sin.

    If you're bisexual, you're confused. If you're skinny, you're on drugs. If you're fat, you look nasty. If you dress up, you're conceited. If you speak your mind, you're a *****. If you don't say anything, you're a punk. If you cry, you're a drama queen. If you have male friends...

    You aren't worthless like they made you feel.

    You aren't so broken that you could never heal. You aren't stupid like they made you think. Listen as I say this, you are stronger than you believe, and smarter than you seem. You are special, you are something else, be proud to be yourself.

    And Yet, I Am Often Told I Act Straight...

    I am gay. I am a lesbian. I am so out loud and proud, that it isn't funny. I don't hide it. I don't deny it (anymore -  I once did). But no one ever thinks that i am gay. Everyone assumes i am straight.  This bothers me. My girlfriend didn't think  I was gay before we had sex...
