hello again

So since I've changed a lot since I first came here I thought I'd reintroduce myself, both to you and me.
My name is Maddie (or Maddie Joy, whatever). I'm fifteen and I live in Washington, where it's very green and the seasons don't really mean anything.
After about a year of thinking about it I've finally figured out that I'm a lesbian. I think it took me so long because I had all those stereotypes in my head--the sporty, muscly, short-haired girl who wears a tie and pants, and I don't fit any of those. I'm tiny (petite, really), bookish, and I only wear skirts.
I'm really good in school, but the only subjects I care about are ancient history and drama. Drama is also my only extra-curricular activity. I've been in 12 mainstage plays, and I'm working on my 13th and just auditioned for my 14th.
So yeah. That's me. Just your basic nerdy theatre kid, but a little different ;)
My cookies just got done baking, so bye for now!

Welcome to the club, sister.

Welcome to the club, sister. Glad you figured it out. I'll have to teach you the super secret lesbian handshake some time.

on figuring it out. Stereotypes are a bitch, but just have to realize they aren't the only path.

Otherwise, I would be effeminate, know all the names of One Direction, and obsessed with theater...

I think the stereotypes that GLBT's face is a big part of why we haven't gained acceptance in the mainstream society.

No shit.

How long did it take you to figure that out?
