Longer rant about today later because this should be documented but for now...

I AM NOT STRAIGHT!

It really pisses me off when people assume I am. And then I get annoyed when people don't understand WHY that upsets me. I guess I can deal with the assumption because a lot of people assume MOST people are straight unless they conform to a stereotype they have created in their own heads and they see in the media, but to then not understand why I don't like being called 'straight' because it's not 'normal' so I should be glad to be assumed to be normal....

...big fuck you.

I kind of realised that the reason I finally had enough of Heather Doney's shit (she was a girl I knew in high school and she was unkind but we kind of put up with it) when I turned 18 and finally cut off all contact with her, was because of the way she handled her best friend coming out. Heather came to ME sobbing saying that something was wrong with Amber and when I asked if Amber was sick, because my first assumption was cancer, Heather said, "she is sick!" And when I asked what she had, Heather said, "she's bisexual!!" And since I was pretty much struggling with my own sexuality at the time, that was NOT what I needed to hear. As soon as I got away from her (and moved to Uni) I was able to admit it to the people closest to me. She would have made that unbearable.

I'm not sick. I'm not abnormal. I'm just not straight. And if you don't like it, I really don't care anymore.

Oh WOW people suck. You're awesome and I'm fairly certain me + everyone who knows you wouldn't have it any other way. ♥

It'll make more sense in context, but it'll take me forever to type up about today. It wasn't me being attacked, it was just comments that cheeses me off. And it wasn't by my classmates!

And AWW THANK YOU *hugs big time*

BEING IN A HETEROSEXUAL RELATIONSHIP DOES NOT MAKE ONE A HETEROSEXUAL. It always really bothers me that people assume. If someone's in a homosexual relationship people don't automatically assume they're 100% gay (okay, some people might, but not everyone does -- most of the world does seem to be aware of bisexuality, pansexuality and other such non-binary sexual orientations, and the people around me, at least, do not assume 100% one thing or another) so why do they do so with people who are in heterosexual ones?

It really doesn't. I don't get it. I was so annoyed to be arbitrarily defined like that. Argh.

The other stuff she said was gross too. But that rant is longer. Though I have a feeling you'll have a strong opinion on that shit too. I'll write it on a day when I have less classes!!

You're LARA. Pure and simple. Well, maybe not pure and definitely not simple-minded . . . SHIT. You know what I'm saying, love. I don't understand why people feel it necessary to put labels on each other either. It's not like it changes WHO you are.

:-)

Guess what? I'm not straight either! Who woulda thought!?

Certainly not the doctor tonight. He put "Heterosexual" down on my form without even asking me. I pointed out that that was false and he blushed and asked me to select an option. Damn right. Although having said that, the options were kind of limited. But better than nothing.

Also, in the past couple of years I've decided that I'm really not even completely one of those filthy lesbians. I may indeed have caught a bit of that bisexual flu that's been going around. *shock* *horror*

The whole being assumed to be 'normal' business is just fucking insulting. Gah.

Hunny, I've said it before and I'll say it again... I dont believe in labels. I don't think that when someone falls in love with a person, they consiously think "oh yeah it a man/woman" anymore then they would think "white/black/blue eyes/brown eyes" or any other type of stereotype. You fall in love with a *person* beggging and end.

People who don't get this are naive, badly bought up and quite frankly... stupid. Love is love. Who the gender of the person if is irrelevent.

Be proud of who you are and know that true friends love you for it. Why sink yourself to a level of an idiot. I value my friends because of who they are not their sexual orientation. As for me, I'm just me. I love who I love, Granted it's mainly women so thus if you must I'm Gay but who knows what tomorrow brings?

I don't believe in them either. I loved so much when Willow fell in love with Tara on Buffy because they didn't define it and then after that they labeled her and to me, that made it lose credibility. I thought it was awesome that the show was saying "love is love" and then all of season 7 they were shouting "YOU'RE A LESBIAN" blah blah blah. I was annoyed! She HAD been with Oz and she was happy. I don't get it.

It totally is.

Exactly. Who knows what tomorrow brings.
the Avaunt Guard: titsroselet on March 31st, 2010 08:51 pm (UTC)
To be honest, I don't really think about someone's sexual orientation when I first meet someone, unless I want to get into their pants. I don't understand why it would bother someone. But then, I don't understand a lot of the things people seem to be bothered by (universal healthcare, gay marriage—you know, really outlandish concepts). Grah!

I always thought this kind of thing would only be a problem in high school, but apparently not. One of my flatmate's friends, upon hearing that she was a lesbian, said: "But you don't look gay!" ...Because that's totally the way it works.

I don't either! They're just a person and all that other stuff makes up who they are, not what they are.

Wow. WOW. *headdesk*
