I love it love it love it UH OH.
Ugh I hate that song. It gets stuck in my head all the damn time and I have to flush my brain with Abba or something to make it stop.
So on Sunday, it will be my 10th anniversary with the boyfriend. Ten years! My god, about the only thing I’ve stuck with longer is my current job, and that’s only because I like having money in my account. TEN YEARS.
When I mention that to people I work with, I always get the question “you gonna get married? ’cause you can now!” and honestly? Nah, that’s not my cup of tea. I mean, it’s obviously fantastic that gay people CAN marry, and I have strong opinions about equal rights, but just because the gays CAN doesn’t necessarily mean they SHOULD, same as any straight person. It all depends on your personal ideals and circumstances, and whether you need that whole ceremonial stuff. I personally don’t, but I love to GO to a wedding, gay or otherwise (though let’s be fair, the LGBT crowd throw the best parties). I’m a party girl, I guess, but one who doesn’t want the added pressure of it being all about ME.
There were raid cinematics. They proved controversial. *shrug*
You know, I’ve never “officially” come out to someone. Like, I came out to my mother accidentally that one time, and I’ve passively revealed the ol’ homoness to people in conversation (you know, someone talks about their other half, and I go “oh my boyfriend is the same way” etc etc*) or by my general campy flailing mannerisms, but I’ve never had the old “MOTHER, FATHER, PLEASE SIT DOWN, I HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO TELL YOU” super-dramatic coming out.
I’m quite glad of that. Like, I’ve never had any issues with it, I’ve not had the worry, the fear, the dread that comes from hiding 🏳️🌈 THE 🏳️🌈 SECRET 🏳️🌈 from those you love, and I’m very lucky for that. I know, though, that not everyone is that fortunate, so let me tell you right here and now, I support you and I am here for you, if you need it!
*one time when I did this, the other person looked very shocked and said “You’re gay?! I didn’t realise! I thought you were just well-spoken!” which never fails to make me laugh. But also, honey it’s not like I’m really masc, like at all, so how the frig did you NOT know?
