The Comment Awards Are Thankful For You


Hi, loves. Guess what: we made it through Thanksgiving! I even somehow managed to play Cards Against Humanity with my conservative cousins without anyone saying anything racist — and I got to explain what heteronormativity was! Sending a very big, friendly internet hug to whomever needs one. I’m so very proud of all of you.

I JUST CAME OUT TO MY FAMILY I literally couldn’t eat anything, I couldn’t touch my food and I felt physically ill. When I actually said the words, I briefly lapsed into something akin to a dream-state. But I did it. I’m out. And boy, let me tell you it was anticlimactic. My most LGBTphobic uncle just asked when I decided to be gay. But that was it! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
