people are like “why do you just let yourself pass as gay most of the time?” but how do you think it would go if i had to explain to every straight person that i’m bigender, abrosexual and usually bi/pan but i’ve been ace for about a year now
@red about as well as my explanations for what I did on the weekend would go.
@red wait, you mean you don't carry around a queer resume detailing your gender and sexuality and complete history of how you got to that point to hand out copies to anyone you meet? how else do you quickly bring every stranger up to speed on your whole entire life and personality??
@NormalPopsicle i should get one of those little laminated cards to hand to straight people so they’ll stop saying horribly awkward things to me
@red oh, I'm sure even then with the help they'd still find a way 😬
I do kinda love the idea that you're suppose to explain to every straight person in detail your whole deal, as if they didn't all only seconds ago start getting use to using the word "gay" respectfully instead of just as a slur' they barely understand the catch-all (that shouldn't have even become a catch all but that's just another sign they haven't even mastered crawling enough to go jogging with the rest of us) so I can't imagine expecting queer folks to give an entire university class rundown of queer theory to every cishet they meet to explain their identities lmao
@NormalPopsicle straight people are like “i know about all five gay identities, even the Q”
@red I'm proud to be an ally to the LGBTQA, Lesbian Gay Bicycle Trains Quinoa Allies, community! happy pride to my gay bffs out there, lets go shopping and get boba after corona!! 😊
@red that's part of the reason I haven't come out to some people
It's like, I know this would take several hours to explain and you still wouldn't get it
So yeah I'm "gay or something"
@RadiantEmber i’m looking forward to wearing my new “she/her” earrings at work but i’m also expecting to get some seriously uncomfortable questions to which i’ll probably respond like “no i’m just extremely gay, like lv 27 gay”
