02:03 pm - Homophobia is wrong
homophobia is wrong

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I
wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.



Repost this if you believe homophobia is wrong.

ok so i have major exams in monday and i am entiarly unprepared (slck ass strikes again! my own procrastination is the bane of my exhistance!) so i am quite stressing out!
however i got a brilliant text message from my friend Imogen/Anita yesterday saying:
"you get back to study and i'll get to study you later"

it made me smile. quite brillian sexual innuendo if you ask me! :D
so i wondered whether anyone out there had other such brilliant one-liners.
anyone got anything to offer?

07:11 pm - Rude Old Women
i saw something that really annoyed me yesterday. an old woman (this is horrible but i find them annoying all of their own accord, even my grandmother!) came onto the bus. she was carrying a trolly and was exceptionally akward with it. but what's worse is that she made out like it was every one elses fult it was hard for her to manouver her trolly. she hit two people with it and gave an exhasperated sigh like it was there fault! how i hatt self riteous and rude old women!

so, she has taken a seat( well, two seats actually! no consideration! ) and then a person, who had been there longer, needed to get off the *public* buss. she made out like they were bing rude/thoughtless/inconveiniencing. by this time i wanted to slap herin the face so she could wake up to herself.
well now there was just her and another indian man on the four alder persons seats. she turns to this man and, addressing him as though he was simple and or hard of hearing, she asked "do you get off past stop four?". he didn't understand her question and she rolled her eyes and asked the same question again, then again and finally with a slight variation" are you on the bus longer than stop four!?". the poor man still didn't understand. consequentially she rolled her eyes again and stopped asking. i was so angry by this stage i wanted to yell at the insensitive racist old cow infront of the whole bus!!!!!!!!!!

i feel this was completely reasonable, but what would you have done/ thought?
maybe i was just having a bad day....

ello (like noddy i ave a strange aversion to the letter...... :S .... H eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww) :)
well. what to tell you? i don't really lead an interesting life!!!!!!!!!!! i know! mit's terrible! you all thought i was someone who did...stuff, but *i'm not*!!!!!!!! well, anyways. i was lucky enough to see the woderful Fleur, who i haven't seen in months, as well as Noddy and Cholas, who i probably haven't seen for longer! we wen't bowling. i am smashingly terrible at bowling, but i will have you know that i like it very much! i actually like several ball sports (yes, bowling and pool *are* ball sports) that i am amazingly crap at! :D

it is good to enjoy what one has no talent at! what could i do if i didn't?

after bowling we went out. Fleur and Noddy didn't like my choice of venues but i did! well, to appease them we moved on and went to...wait for it... the marz bar. it was pretty empty, but i had fun dancing none the less. i also discovered that even in a gay bar i can not escape attracting males! nither can noddy, but that is actually more acceptable at the marz bar!!!!!!! :D

well, i hope this was mildly interesting.
have a good one

have you ever had that feeling, like your sinking. it happens to me all the time. i may be just lieing sleepless at midnight, and i feel like i am falling. falling through space and time. falling through the mattress. falling through reality. if i don't stop, sit up, maybe call out, who knows where i'll end up.

it frightens me

or have you ever been swimming, or in the bath, and you've gone under the water. you open your eyes and stare up. the water stings your eyes but you don't close them. you notice your lungs are burning. you are naturally compelled to come up. to breath. to survive.

have you ever wondered what would happen if you just didn't?
