Today I went to my third Gay-Straight Alliance meeting. At the end, the president passed out cards for everyone to fill out. Allegedly this is mandated by the Associated Student Body for all clubs and their members, although I've never had to do it before for either of the clubs with which I have been involved. Anyway, the problem is that the card requires a Parent Signature. And my parents don't know (nor do my friends, actually, but that's beside the point) that I go to the Alliance meetings. Should I:
1) Ask one of my parents to sign the card. If he or she expresses surprise and/or interest in my joining the Gay-Straight Alliance (as is more than likely), tell him or her mostly the truth, explain Questioning status, but err on the side of 'probably not gay' for the time being - soften the blow, as it were.
2) Fill out the card, except for the parent signature portion, in pencil, making it look like it's for Latin Club (to which I also belong, not so secretly, but for which I have never been asked to fill out one of these cards), get it signed, then erase all the Latin Club stuff and change it to Gay-Straight Alliance. This would be my usual modus operandi (I should have spelled that right? maybe?), but I question its wisdom and ethicality if not its sneakily clever effectiveness.
3) Talk to the club president, explaining my reluctance to get the card signed, and see if it's really necessary.
4) Assume it's not really necessary, and not get the card signed at all.
5) Just forge the signature.
