"You are dressed." These are the three simple words uttered by a gay boy in a bar Liz and I were in Saturday night. "You are dressed."
What a simple passive aggressive ignorant gay cis male statement! Liz and I actually hadn't seen each other in person for a space in time because of any number of logistical problems. We just wanted to be left alone in one of few venues I will even considering going to in my home town.
We ordered a pizza and were doing just that until he comes, resplendent in his tight white T-shirt and bright yellow short shorts-literally "flitting" around the room. The first time he said it, I just glared and said, "So are you." The second time he said it, I must have made my point and looked so hostile - he floated away in his yellow shorts. Briefly, I regressed into his stupid world and thought, "You need smacked for talking smack, you little bitch." But you can't cure gay as much as you can't cure stupid.
So- I found this on Pinterest which describes my feelings exactly! I need to constantly remind myself that ignorance is not confined to any one segment of humans. Regardless of race, gender and sexuality. No one has a corner on it.
Gay, lesbian, cross dresser, transgender, transsexual or straight- no one.
