I don't think I have anything to hide from the fandom. I think I've made it pretty clear, if you know me at all, that I like BOYS. And girls have cooties that make my skin burn. But why is it such a big friggin deal?
After being out for all this time, it's nothing new to me. I've successfully surrounded myself with people who accept me for who I am, and me being gay as a given, and it's no different to them than if I were to be straight, or asexual, or anything else. And I think it applies the same with every sort of sexuality when I say that I know who to discuss my sexuality with and who not to. I don't go talking about my sexuality with my dad. He's simply not interested. He knows I'm gay, and I'm sure he's still upset, but for the most part, he couldn't give a damn, cause it's just not something that we openly discuss. And the same goes for if you were straight, you don't go around talking about that chick you banged unless you're around people who care. Thus, I don't go around talking about my gay endeavors simply because I don't care to.
But believe it or not, coming out of the closet has caused people to lose their jobs, be kicked out of their homes, and even be killed!
So this day is dedicated to those of you still hiding who you really are, and coming to terms with who you are. It may make it a little easier to tell people you know and love, knowing that it's a national event. It may even make it easier for your friends and family to be accepting of such matters.
What are your thoughts on the subject?
If you're gay and still "closeted" do you intend on coming out soon?
Do you think that this day should also count to *b/dl/bf-ism too?
