Well, I'm a new member on OasisMag (obviously) so I guess I should just say "hi" to everybody and try and
make some friends here.

I am fairly young, since I'm in middle school still, and I've recently realized that I'm a lesbian and I
want to be able to talk to and connect with other gay teens, so I signed up on here. I'm a female comic book
geek (and proud of it), and I've never found any stereotypes that really fit me. I like to read a lot, yet
I'm not a geek; I prefer my own company, but I'll socialize when I need to, so I'm not a loner; I guess I'm
pretty masculine, or at least not very effeminate, but I hate sports, so I'm not a tomboy. It's really,
really weird. I'm pretty bookish, and I have a high vocabulary. I have, count 'em, three younger siblings,
and they're really annoying. I'm always trying to avoid them and my parents. 90 percent of the time it
doesn't work, though.

I'm trying to start a GSA at my middle school, since I'm sick of hearing my peers say things like "that's so
gay." I have no idea if it'll be successful, but I'm too stubborn not to try. I'm having a lot of fun with
it so far. Over my summer break I've been reading articles on the internet, researching homosexuality, and
planning the meetings. I've found references to TONS of books about gays and lesbians, too! It is SO FREAKIN'
COOL!!!! I mean, I never knew before that there were so many books for people like me! It ROCKS! But I'm
afraid to buy them, because I don't know what my mom and dad would think. It stinks! I tried coming out to
them before, but they didn't believe me. They said that I'm "too young" to have realized something like this,
and that I need to wait until I'm older to "make decisions like that". Ugh.

Well, that's all I feel like typing right now, so, umm...WELCOME ME, PEOPLE!! :D

(Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention that I'm critically insane...hence the username. :D And I also use
capital letters too much on the internet. I'm trying to cut down on them, but it's no use. *smacks self on

hello hello hello

haha, yes! hey, welcome to the site. how long have you known you were gay? cuz you're just jumping right in. it took me almost a year to get where you are. wow. al the power to you, you rock.

dont worry about the capital letters...i have a thing with elipses.

and hey, about your parents. maybe, to them, you are still the little girl you always were. even if you're ready to accept it, they may not be. dont hide from them, but let them be with you every step of the way. it can show them that it's all true, this is how you really are, and there's nothing to worry about.

ooh, we should play vocab. it's a game where me and my friend throw around big words that we think the other doesnt know. he usually beats me with war words, (stupid boys) but it's tons of fun...hard to type though.

you have been officially welcomed!

she's the mistake i would always gladly continue making

Hi! It is cool to see all of the glbt stuff that's out there, isn't it? It totally blew my mind when I first found it. Well, mail me if you want to talk sometime.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Hey there!

Welcome! You seem like a fantabulous person and a great addition to Oasis! I'm glad to hear you're so interested in learning about your sexuality. Knowledge is power, after all...too bad books don't work very well in live combat! haha See ya later!
