Outed To The School

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.

You came out?!

Oh my fucking God. D:

Like I've said before, I admire people who are brave enough to come out.

I can't believe you did it.

That's soo awesome.

Guess what, a better opportunity to find a sexy lady. x3

I'm proud of you. <3

You'll get through this. :) P

You'll get through this. :) People just need to get used to it, but if you live in a very conservative city, I'm sorry that happened to you, but look at the bright side. In the closet lesbians and bisexual girls might be more willing to come out because you opened the way. Just remember this, I don't remember who said it but this is condensed, take the road less traveled.

Good for you

Good for you! It does take a lot of guts to come out! Congrats!
Oh- and I'm also pretty much a lesbian except for Johnny Depp- I just thought it was cool that someone else is mostly into girls and likes Johnny Depp. I had thought I was the only one.

Yay! That's awesome that it hasn't been too awful or anything. I'm usually paranoid around school, too, but that's great that it worked out pretty well.

Sorry about Becky. It's cool she's so cool, though.

Are you hanging on to something useless just because you think it's beautiful?
