Being in the closet means that although things are difficult at times, a lot of people say things assuming that you are straight, and sometimes this is pretty funny. I’ve heard some interesting lines from my friends. This is a bit of a continuation from my last post Things Parents Say To Their Closeted Gay Kids so go and check that out.
Anyway, here we go…
One day, we were all sitting eating lunch, on our phones, the situation went a little bit like this: “oh my god [insert name, can’t remember who the hell it was] is gay. I’ve always wanted a gay friend.” Meanwhile I’m sitting there on my own phone just thinking 🌈🌈🌈. They are so blind…
I have a few friends who are guys. For my female friends who don’t know about my gender or sexuality, the fact I’m “female” with male friends is a difficult concept. Most days I get a comment along the lines of “so you and [name]… Are you together?” Every time I just think, why can’t I have friends… And as someone who is bisexual does that mean that I automatically fancy anyone who I’m friends with? Newsflash, no I don’t. So deal with it.
Then we all have that friend, who’s the causal homophobe because they think it’s funny and don’t realise that they are sitting right next to a fucking rainbow. My only advice here, is say to this friend, “stop saying things like that, you don’t know who you may be offending.” Person shuts up, you stay in closet. Of course, if you want to come out of the closet, that combined with the right line, would be a very entertaining way out.
When you meet new people, a question they normally ask the question “so do you have a boyfriend?” My response to this tends to vary depending on my first impression of whoever asked the question. Normally I have to try very hard not to start laughing. Then you get the person who just can’t have a single friend and wants to set you up with the first single male they find. Which is just great.
I hope that some of you found this relatable, if there’s any that I forgot, please let me know in the comments below. Give this post a like if you enjoyed it. Follow me to see more of what I have to say. My socials are at the top.
