The power went out last night, so my dad found a kerosene lantern that had not been used in who knows how long. I think the experience took five years off my life.
hopenooneclaimedthisurl replied to your post “kinda sorta accidentally came out to my dad today. oops?”
hey! How did it go? Everything okay?
ah, thanks for asking! okay, storytime.
we were watching botched, which is a show about shitty plastic surgery, and there was a guy on there that was a madonna impersonator. this guy was very effeminate and my dad makes a comment along the lines of “what do you think would happen if that was my son?” and includes some slurs and a lot of homophobic and casually sexist things. obviously, i’m not gonna keep my mouth shut.
i’m not gonna go into the whole argument, but there were raised voices, slurs, sexism, and lots of fucking cursing. somewhere in the argument, i sort of blurt out “i’m not exactly fucking straight!” and at first i didn’t think he caught it cuz we just continued arguing. a couple minutes later, still in the midst of the argument, he says ” you’re my daughter, i don’t care what you are” and then probably something else irritating. the argument ended when the chinese delivery came.
there wasn’t a whole discussion about it, or even like, what level of “not straight” i am or anything. i’m sure if he told my mom, that conversation will come and be super fucking uncomfortable.
but yeah, all in all, not as scary as i thought it would be. :)
i’m into girls and guys but i’m also really into pasta
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
Frustrated and bemused by the pro-life protesters at the local clinic in Cary, N.C., Tina Haver Currin and her husband Grayson Haver Currin decided to exemplify “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”
So they joined them, and have joined the protesters every Saturday, but in their own way and with their own sense of humor. The resulting project has now being documented in our favorite new Tumblr, Saturday Chores.
