Ok, so last week I got outed to the school. It all happened during a pretty innocent Chemistry lesson, when a guy asked me if I was a lesbian (we'd been having this conversation ages before- it wasn't just a spur of the moment thing.) I suddenly felt like I wasn't gonna hide it anymore, and I told him the truth, "Yep- I'm into girls, plus Johnny Depp." He looks really shocked, and is speechless for a little while, but by that time somebody else has heard and it spreads all over the classroom. Next thing I know, I'm being asked questions in every class. Groups of whispering girls look over at me and suddenly go quiet when I walk past. My normal paranoia is suddenly increased a thousand-fold, and I keep my head down and ignore everyone.
But then I get people coming up to me and saying, "Well done- that tooks guts," and people who tell me they'll look out for me, and I should tell them if anyone's getting onto me. People are starting to seem more curious, rather than actually being bothered. I answer their question as truthfully as I can, but drawing the line at the personal ones- naturally.
So yeah, that's my story. Apart from a few idiots, it's been pretty great!
Plus Becky, the straight girl I have a crush on, doesn't seem bothered at all. So far today she's hugged me, been flirting and joking about our sex lives, called me her 'girlfriend' in front of some lads and just acted like the sweetest person on Earth. Such a shame she's straight- and I know for definite she is.
