Bollocks! I forgot to wish everyone a Happy National Coming Out Day yesterday (though it's today for those of you in the UK). Anyway, I just wanted to say that it's okay - you guys don't have to talk about it - but for those of you who are too wrapped up in your online masculinity to acknowledge their true identity here on DDO, it's alright. I'll be here waiting if you need to talk... I know who you are : )

It's LGBT - But I appreciate you for trying! :)

Lol I dunno - I heard about it my freshman year in college, and know that it's every October 11 where closeted gays are encouraged to come out of the closet, I guess. It's supposed to be sort of "celebrated" to give them the confidence and open support of those around them to do so. It's not a huge deal, but a nice thought for those who use/need it, I suppose. But yes, screw the gays! Let's celebrate the man who imposed genocide on the Native Americans and took the living ones back as slaves!

That's the way my history teacher last year viewed it. I can't help but agree with her.

Wait, took them back? I didn't know they took any significant numbers of Native Americans back to Europe.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Columbus took Native Americans back to Spain to prove his discovery. Maybe we should do it again with real Americans , and dub it "America - The World Show of Stubbornness"
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Screw that, no way I'm celebrating this.

I have a huge final on Wednesday and I'm not leaving my room for any reason except the bathroom and the refrigerator.

I'll be staying INDOORS today, tyvm.

Besides, It's cold.

Yeah, I put on some red, high-heeled, leather boots,a baby blue bonnet, a lacey black thong, and a pink training bra. Then I skipped around the block in broad daylight, carrying a bouquet of pansies and a candy-striped bo-peep staff, while whistling the Oscar Meyer Wiener song!

That's not "Coming Out Day". That sounds more like Halloween.

Alright... I admit it ok! I'm a lesbian.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

This is a horrible generalization. Little Bo Peep? Gay men would not be so tacky in 2009. Maybe 1989...

You should have gone with something Madonna-ish. She's like a little black dress: she never goes out of style.
