Awkward moment: Commenting to your crush that you have so much random crap in your pockets you need to clean out.
More Awkward: Crush reaches in your pocket jokingly and retrieves the condom you received for World AIDS Day.
Even More Awkward: You're 15.
Clincher: You're both girls.
At our GSA today, our very fabulously gay president, Dani, led the introductions, but then when it was the turn of our advisor, Mr. J., to give his name, sign, and age, he got us on track with the significance of today to the community. He read some sobering statistics on AIDS from the paper, new as of November of this year. Mr. J. is gay, so he told us some stories about people he knew with HIV, and friends of his who had died from AIDS. But then he went on to ask, "But is AIDS just a gay disease? Is that true?"
Everyone: (variations of "no")
Dani: Come on now. Is it true, or is it a load of crap!
Everyone: Not true, no.
Dani: Come on, everyone, say it with me! Load of CRAP!
Everyone: LOAD OF CRAP!
Margot (our VP): Gays fight back!
Once upon a time I had a discussion with a notorious, skilled but conservative debater named Luke. It was basically about gay rights, and Luke said that there was a higher rate of disease amongst homosexual people. The whole thing culminated in me screaming about how lesbians would have a really hard time giving each other AIDS, almost elaborating on the few circumstances that would make it possible, but thankfully cutting myself off.
On another note, I've lurked on this site for about--a year and a half?--and I'm just now coming around to posting about my happy queer little life. So...hi everyone!
