Hello there readers, insomniacs, and interlopers,
If you've read my last blog entry, you'll know that I'm being somewhat silly about outting myself to family and friends. I get all this great advice from you readers (you guys are awesome! Thanks!), and then I go and ignore it. All these great oppurtunities to out myself keep coming up. Do I use them? Nooo....
A few days ago, one of my parents' friends whose son is a gay activist (and also an old friend of mine-- we grew apart over the years) wrote an article in the newspaper. His article was about, well, gay activism, I guess. (A little more than that, but that's enough for brevity.) My mum and I started chatting about it at home. She even said something like "Oh, it must be hard to be gay". Did I retort with something like, "You think that's hard? Try being bisexual!" No, I remained silent! A perfect oppurtunity-- gone! Bah! What is the matter with me?!
Oh, I know: the identity change issue again (see "crucial entry" blog entry). I'll stop being Daniel, and I'll start being Daniel, our bisexual son, or Daniel, our bisexual friend. 'We'd better watch what we say around him. We wouldn't want to offend him because he's queer, you know.' I don't want that, dammit!
...But, it's going to happen eventually, right? I'm just delaying the inevitable! Oh, what to do!
