Normally I don’t give a fuck about issues like this, but this girl I know saw me on the street after not seeing each other for a summer. My hair is grown out and I’ve put on some muscle so I look slightly different, but no huge change. She doesn’t recognize me at first and said that I “look straight”. I awkwardly said thank you (like that was some compliment or something). We went off to wherever we were headed before the awkward exchange, but it made an impression. People associate certain looks with homosexuality, because that’s what happens with every stereotype. I just want to make something evidently clear: I am not a stereotype. I’d like to be able to change my appearance slightly and not have to worry about whether or not I’m condoning to a gay or straight agenda. It’s ridiculous that I even have to voice this. Just do me a favor, think twice before opening your mouth about anything in regards to someone’s sexuality. It’s personal and, unless they’re bringing it up, you probably shouldn’t. Being gay will no longer be such an issue when the world stops talking about it. So shut your damn mouths and let me be.
