A conversation with firehead30
just made me remember this from yesterday.
Yesterday came the inevitable I've been at my new job over 2 months question from a co-worker:
"Do you have a boyfriend?"
I replied, "No."
If I had had a girlfriend at the time, I would have said, "no, I have a girlfriend." because I'm not closeted by any means. But I don't. So I just said, "No." Because no matter how many times I get asked that question, it always throws me.
Then the person goes on thinking I'm straight. BECAUSE EVERYONE ALWAYS THINKS I'M FUCKING STRAIGHT. Argh.
And so now it will be this thing...I had an opportunity to say, "No, I don't have a boyfriend and I never will because I don't like boys." But I didn't. So yeah, it will eventually come up again, and she will think I was like hiding something from her. But really, she just didn't ask the right question.
I hate this. I hate that I constantly have to make an effort to be out, or feel like i'm intentionally hiding it. I'm doing neither, i'm just not chatty about my personal stuff with people in RL, unless i'm close to them.
I'm seriously getting a giant rainbow tattooed on my forehead so that I will just never have to be in this position again.
Sorry for the spam.
