Introduction, sort of

Let's see.. just in case someone is actually reading this, I'll take the time to introduce myself.. Well firstly, my name is Alicia. Funny thing about my name: one's pronounced like "Aleesha" and the other is pronounced like "Aleesia." My name's pronounced like the second one. What else? Um, I used to identify as lesbian, but now I identify as genderqueer and pansexual, so that change is also pretty interesting to me. I'm out as a lesbian to all of my friends, but I'm only out to one friend as genderqueer. I'm not really sure how my other friends will take this because they only understand gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual. What else is there to talk about? My family's really homophobic. Actually, I'm exaggerating a bit. They're sort of accepting of the "gay world," as they call it, but they'd never accept me if I were to come out. It's pretty sad. Hmm... I'm sixteen years old, but I'll be seventeen in October, can't wait for that. And school's out, so I'm really happy, but also upset at the same time because I'm really bored. I'm going to Florida with my friend and his Christian, homophobic family in a couple of weeks. I'm not so sure how that's going to turn out because they're making me go to church, even though I'm not religious AT ALL. Wow, I really didn't think I had anything to talk about, so I'm surprised at all the crap I'm saying. I'm finally going to be a h.s. senior, so I'm looking forward to September. I'm pretty much done with high school, but my school is an early college high school, so I'm going to have to come to school for college classes. Going back to the homophobia thing, I just really don't understand it. I don't hate homophobic people, I just seriously have trouble understanding homophobia.. You know, it's not only homophobia, it's any prejudice. I have trouble understanding prejudice in general. Why would someone choose to hate someone else because of something that makes them who they are? I just don't get it. Well, I think that's all I have to talk about right now, so I guess I'll write later or something..

Some people are afriad of

Some people are afriad of things that they don't understand, so instead of taking the time to understand they hate because its easier. I think that makes sense in a way... If you don't mind me asking, what exactly does genderqueer and pansexual mean?

answers..

um, well, about the genderqueer thing.. I sort of don't fit into the standard gender binary.. I'm not exactly female and I'm not exactly male.. I'm just, I don't know, me, I guess lol. Um and pansexual.. it sort of means that I'm attracted to everyone, not just male, not just female.. so yeah, hope that answers your questions :)
