Not that kind.


Day 28: Write a letter to someone. It can be a coming out letter or a letter regarding how you hate their homophobia or whatnot. You don’t have to send it.

Dear Manager Who Believes in Sasquatch:

I get that you think “gay” is a funny word to use when you want to jokingly insult your friends. I get that you think our gay store manager would be down with that. I’m telling you, as a queer myself and as a gay supporter, I find it offensive. A) Why would you even say something like that in a work environment when you’re surrounded by a bunch of people you only know superficially? What if some of us aren’t heterosexual and you don’t know it? SUCH IS THE CASE. B) What right do you have to make a person’s sexual orientation the punchline of your stupid jokes? I get the impression that if you heard some of us standing around taking swings at your Christianity, you’d be offended. You’d take that personally. It’s a part of who you are, part of your identity as a human being. SO IS WHO YOU LOVE.

I’m not campaigning to change your personal opinion. That would take more time than I have, and probably, for you, only God can do that. If you gain a bigger perception of what God means. Right now what I’m interested in is how you’re treating the queers around you, directly and indirectly. The people around you. I feel like, as a manager, it’s partly your responsibility to ensure that we have a workplace where every employee feels welcome to work. That’s currently not happening.

Working graciously with you but not afraid to stand up to you,

The Girl on Make Line.

*This is IRL. I mean. Tonight I told him his use of “gay” offends me. Next time (because there will be a next time), I’m calling him the fuck out.

Day 6: Did you face any problems regarding religion?

Some people really, really take Genesis 9.7 to heart. [“As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.”] Some people, including the Pope, apparently, have a problem with individuals choosing to neglect their “God-given sexuality.” Ironically, most of these people are also the first to condemn people who express their sexuality in ways they don’t personally approve.

Anyway, while I’ve had someone tell me that I’m “unnatural” and “against God” because I’m not attracted to anyone and uninterested in sex, we aces haven’t got it nearly as bad as some other minority orientations out there. I mean, we’re still allowed to marry, at least half the time.
