you forgot...

"Let's get one thing straight: I'm not." The classic.

And, if you want, "Straight? So's spaghetti, until you heat it up."

i voted for "Love is Love" (in rainbow colors)...

cuz its cute, classy, it's not exactly obvious like wearing a shirt that says "I'm GAY"... but unless people are really slow, they should get it.

No one knows...

I chose "No one knows I'm queer" because I actually bought a shirt that said "No one knows I'm a lesbian...Oh crap" for a friend of mine for her birthday. ^_^

I guess the loud coming out

I guess the loud coming out to everyone within earshot (or eyeshot, as the case may be) is just not my style. My opinion is this: the people who are anti-gay, the conservatives and the homophobes, judge homosexuals by the loud pride parades and the angry lesbians they see on tv or in movies or whatever. These targets are easy to judge, and stereotypes remain the same, whether or not their accountant or their librarian or their coworkers are gay, they associate the flamboyant few with the entire population.

Those who are anti-gay who see this t-shirt will judge you before they get a chance to know you, and their wrong prejudices will never be challenged, as they would be if you came out quietly and respectfully to people who knew and respected you already.

Do as you will, those are just my thoughts.

I was torn between "no one

I was torn between "no one knows I'm queer" and "heterosexually challenged". The first is kind of like a camo shirt I saw once that said "oh crap it's snowing" on it.

I ended up doing

I ended up doing "heterosexually challenged." It worked OK, I suppose. I am very glad I came out.

Aah...I'm the only one who

Aah...I'm the only one who voted for the one that says "Sappho is my homegirl."

(If you look at the previous sentence again, you'll find a reference to the song by Melissa Etheridge: "I'm the Only One." Random, I know. God, I'm so gay. :D)

for 'anythingnotmyname'...

... if this is an issue, i suggest that they come out(pun possibly intended) with a shirt that has the front of a vest on it and if you're sure that the person will be non-judgemental, you could just unbutton the vest....
