Man, does nobody read the forum on long weekends? I was hoping for some kind of response that prompted me to post more.

*continues to wait*

I read it. I spent the rest of my weekend attempting to come up with a witty retort. All I have so far is:

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL FAG
[17:42:21.609] <Ergot> Kutsuju you're girlfrieds pussy must be a 403 error for you
 [17:42:25.585] <Ergot> FORBIDDEN

on IRC playing T&T++
<iago> He is unarmed
<Hitmen> he has no arms?!

on AIM with a drunk mythix:
(00:50:05) Mythix: Deadly
(00:50:11) Mythix: I'm going to fuck that red dot out of your head.
(00:50:15) Mythix: with my nine

Completely unexpected.
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

I'll take that as a complement. Stereotypes suck. :)

So, I'm not quite sure if I'm serious. I suppose "o rly gay" via IM wasn't the best way to evoke a serious response.

This reminds me of David Spade's vegan waiter in Grandma's Boy.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

*shrug* there just happened to be another conversation we had to have at the time (since I'd sent you a bunch of crap that I meant to send a different 'joe'). :)

Ah, then you wouldn't get it. He was a vegan, and gay.

I suspect there's a bit of a correlation between people who are vegan and people who will admit that they're gay.

Both go against the social norm, for one thing. And both require awkward conversations when you meet new people ;)

Hah, "stupid fucking ass in the red shirt" -- but they never say he's gay. Stereotype!

Anyway, brief background (because I feel the need to say it, and nobody has asked! :) )...

I've felt this way longer than I can remember, probably since highschool (like 12 years ago). I never *really* considered it a big deal, and still don't. I've never denied it, but I haven't advertised it either. If anybody asked me explicitly, I always avoided answering the question (usually "are you coming onto me?" is enough :D). The only person I ever told was during an interview for security clearance -- oddly, she wouldn't let me evade it, and I don't like to lie directly. I didn't get the clearance. :)

I hate the term "coming out" (and I hate the fact that people default to hetero in the first place, and have to explicitly tell people when they aren't), but such is life. Stupid society! I still have no plans for a relationship or anything, I like being single, but I finally decided that it was best to throw down my cards. Hell, maybe somebody else will be inspired somewhere. :)

My biggest concern is being treated differently -- I haven't changed who I am, and I don't want people to think I did, or to avoid saying things in front of my or whatever.

But yeah, I decided that this was the best place to post first, since nobody here has any relationship to the rest of my life. I don't want it to be a secret anymore. I told other close friends after posting here, too -- eventually I'll tell everybody. My dad's going to be interesting... :D

I'd like to know what people honestly think, though. Don't be nice because I'm me -- it's impossible to hurt my feelings. Challenge me, ask questions, etc -- just like the vegan thing. Defending being vegan only made me stronger!

<edit> Joe, can you go ahead and send me that picture of your penis again? (kidding!!! ;) )

Fag.

And it's not like the vegan thing at all.  You aren't shunning bacon by being gay, so I don't care.  I've never had a problem with gay people.  In fact, quite the opposite....they tend to smell better than straight people and aren't competition for the very very very few females that were at my college.

But you still suck for being vegan.
