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
