National Coming Out Day
Dear mostly sane family, who've thought for the last ten years or so that I was gay and that my best friend and I were a couple: you're like... a quarter right? [Half wrong = my roomie and I are not nor have we ever been, a couple. An additional quarter wrong would be the part where I like both boys and girls. :) ----] (note to self -- remember to make that Big Brass Balls Award for Lin, for actually asking; it's only about 4 years overdue...)

Dear mom: I can't gauge the depths of the irony contained in the fact that the reason I haven't told you I like girls is that I would enjoy the experience too much. Also, alas, after the initial stunned silence, you would never. shut. up. about it. There might be exorcisms. Despite these facts, the next time you try to fix me up with some nice, polite young man who gets his Thorazine at the same time as you do, there's an extremely good chance that you'll get your own personal National Coming Out Day, delayed just for you. Wherein I conveniently neglect to mention the fact that I also like boys.

Dear people at work who very likely also think my best friend and I are a couple, given large pic of us on my office wall, printouts of TBQ's gay rights essays tacked up in strategic places, and the fact that we've lived together since college: you go right on thinking that. It amuses me because none of you are ever going to win a BBB Award for asking, and thus get disabused of the notion.

In conclusion, bisexuality = Teh Cool, for it doubles the available pool of people I'm currently not having sex with. Go me!

I did, but then she found out I had cats, and she left.

Huh. So if I were bi I could feel twice as socially inept as I feel now? Hmmmm.

You've confused me. Say it again? Smaller words this time.

My family, who (aside from my schizophrenic, Catholic mother)ironically seem to have guessed that I like girls without me having to tell them, think I am having more sex than I am. This makes me amused.

And not remotely bitter. At all. Ever.

LOL. Just de-lurking to say, GO YOU!

I'd forgotten about coming out day...must go and post. I think everyone who reads my journal knows I'm bi by now, but still someone may have missed it *g*

Go me! I can not have a date with the *entire* population of the world tomorrow, instead of just half of it. ;)

Can I borrow this? Because it's better than anything I'd ever come up with (and it applies). Except that I might have to capitalize 'not'.

mpoetess

2004-10-12 07:43 am (UTC) (Link)

I meant it with a capitalized Not. I did. I just didn't capitalize it for...um. Religious reasons. yeah, that's it. Capital N's are against my religion. Oh, shit, I just typed one. Now I'm going to Hell. Damn, there was another one!

Okay, this post? Made me laugh out loud for the first time in days.

If I could be trisexual, I would. really.

mpoetess

Glad to amuse. *g*

What would trisexual be? Boys, girls, and llamas?

I want to make you an icon. Let me make you an icon or I will wither and DIE. What do you want? Tell me! I always go to make you one and then I think that no, you make your own, and they all have reasons and stuff behind them and all I want is to make you happy! Let me make you happy, please?

I sort of stole it from Woody Allen ("Being bi doubles your chances of getting a date on saturday night...") then mutilated it -- feel free!
