  1. THIS THIS THIS. I don’t mind the girls, but they guys. Jeez. And it’s not only jealousy/insecurity either, it’s a part of a much bigger pattern of invalidation, and thus really painful and anger-inducing. A seldom seen topic, thanks!

  2. I was really bad at this when I first came out. When I saw a queer-looking girl (yes I know the problematic statement that is) if they weren’t actually touching a girl I would ask her for coffee. That got me a lot of glares before I stopped doing that.
