October 11th is National Coming Out Day. I know I've said it before, but I'm gonna say it again because it is important for people to feel safe. I am an ally. I don't give a rat's ass if you're straight, gay, lesbian, bi-curious, asexual, pansexual, genderqueer, lactose intolerant, Capricorn, or even Republican.
The exception to the above being if you're a girl who kisses girls only when booze is involved. That's a cry for attention and bugs the shit outta me. If you're gonna kiss a girl, do it because you fancy her, not because you want the star quarterback to pop a boner for you. It cheapens the emotions and sincerity of those who truly are attracted to their own gender. Knock it off. Find a different way to entice Johnny Bulge.
Those of you who find yourself somewhere other than straightsville, you have nothing to fear from me regarding accepting you for who you are. I value a person more for their substance than what gets them all tingly in the bits.
My name is Ephemily, and I am an ally.
