Yet that girlfriend is actually a very nice man named Carlos.
The reason for this? My family
They are very very anti-homosexuality, and they have begun to suspect me of associating and being corrupted by such "undesirables". I have received a long email from my mom lecturing me on the perils of being with the damned. The dangers of studying such evil topics as transsexualism. The risks of involving myself with the homosexual "cult". Moreover, I have often been warned about how devastated they will be if I was ever to fall into the "homosexual trap".
This is my response:
It is a great deception of course. I don't believe these statements at all. For example, I invented "Wendy" as a cover for seeing my boyfriend. And I believe that a great many of my gay friends are suddenly going to become straight. All this to protect those that cannot handle the truth. Those too weak to let go of the discriminatory ideologies they cling to as "the one great truth".Mom, you worry too much. Obviously, I know that homosexuality is evil and that those who promote it will surely burn in Hell. I'm not an idiot. Of course, there is more to a person than just their sexuality, so sure I have a few gay friends. I mean, they will probably be damned to Hell, but that doesn't mean you can't have a good time with them in the mean time. They may change their ways. Certainly, I am careful not to let their corruption affect me. Plus, reading about all these websites on homosexuality or transsexualism, it's educational. You learn your enemy, and you come to understand why they are wrong and evil. Now, I don't want to sound like I hate them, that's for God to judge, I just know what they are doing is wrong. I'm not a fool, so you don't have to worry about me.
This is not permanent. The ruse need only last 2 more years, until I have completed my education and can find meaningful employment. It allows me to live in peace with my family, and afford my education. Plus, I don't want to be there to witness my mom's nervous breakdown or my father's rage when they finally hear the truth.
I intend to systematically deceive and manipulate my homophobic parents for my personal gain. And I feel no guilt over it, because it is they who have driven me to it. I've tried simply avoiding the topic. I've tried just saying that I have my own moral standards. Certainly, I am not so weak as to reject my boyfriend for my family's sake. I can see no other option here but lies... damn lies.
But at least I can say, now I know how those gay American politicians felt. lol
PS: This whole situation sickens me. The fact that it has come to this disgusts me. If anyone is corrupting me, it's my family, by reducing me to a con artist. I just want to smash something, sigh.
