This thread is just what we needed to bring activity back to x86. People should turn gay more often.

You'll find that people just don't "turn gay".  :P
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

I was avoiding the words "come out". :P
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

You know, this doesn't surprise me at all. You always seemed to avoid the topic of girls haha. Sidoh's gf was wanting us to do more than grab ass, so that probably would have been even more awkward for you lol.

So, now that we know why you haven't had a girlfriend, where is your boyfriend? We can now make fun of you for being single, but by using the correct gender

Pics or it didn't happen!

Errrr, nevermind. :)

For what it's worth, as long as people know, I don't have to feel guilty/awkward in the future! :D

Wait... is this why you represented yourself as a "Girl" in your x86 gender field?

Haha no, that goes back to an old story from vL. Somebody complained that the male:female ration was off, so me, Thing, and a couple others did our part to change the balance.

I was wondering if anybody would bring that up. :)

In case anybody is wondering, I moved this topic from private board to public.

If anybody has any issues, let me know. I don't think anything in here is sensitive to anybody but me, though. Apologies if something is! :)

lol.

Have you known completely since high school, or were you unsure? If you were unsure, is that what caused the delay in 'coming out?' I seem to recall you talking about a girl at the gas station one time, but I might be off. In any case, best of luck with your father and whomever else you've yet to tell.

Speaking of gas stations, do you have a copy of Ron Pumps Gas laying around? Best movie ever.

Well, as is pretty ordinary I suspect, I knew during highschool but I sort of hoped it was something that wouldn't last, or that I'd "grow out of" back then. Doing things like forcing myself to think of girls (or look at straight porn). It never did it for me (I mean, I did enjoy *half* of straight porn, if you know what I mean). But, in reality, I've probably been internally comfortable and sure for at least 10 years.

Why did I delay 'coming out'? That's a very good question, and a hard one to answer. The primary reasons are a combination of:
1. I just didn't care that much
2. I'm a passive/introverted person at the best of times
3. I'm the kind of person who hates making others uncomfortable
4. I'm also a 'loner' -- even now, I don't really want a relationship
5. I don't want people to look at me differently, or change how they talk/what jokes they make/etc

So, why did I choose now? I've talked about this in a few places, and I forget what I've said here, so this may be a repeat.

I have a good friend from a few years back. We used to work together. When I moved off to Calgary, we kept in touch, and when I came back, we hung out a lot more. When I moved into my new place, a week later he moved to Calgary (the FUCKER! :) ). I helped him move and flew back. In the year that he was gone, I spent 3 weeks at his place and he spent probably 2 or 3 at mine. He moved back a few months ago (maybe February?) and got a place in the same building as me, so I see him almost daily now. We've become rather close.

Now, don't get me wrong -- he isn't gay, at all, and I'm not in the least bit attracted to him. But, having a close friend for support means a lot to me, and it was probably the main driving factor.

And for what it's worth, he basically already knew. :)


For the gas station thing, I have no clue what you're talking about. Sorry :)

Maybe somewhere. *shrug*

Woah!  I guess I was caught a little bit off guard because I didn't think you were serious to begin with, but I guess I'm not too surprised.

I'm definitely not offended, and it was a fun night!  I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to DEF CON this year, but if I do, we'll definitely hang out.

Haha. I initially posted it in such a way that I could deny it later, if it came to that. I was going to do it from an external ip address, too -- the first post in this thread I actually made from open wifi downtown (but I always ssh back home before I do anything).

I'm looking forward to Defcon again, for sure. I know quite a few people going, security- and non-security folks alike. It should be a blast!

Still the same person to me.

It's strange -- you are the second friend of mine to recently come out of the closest.  It must be that time of the year. :P
The once grove of splendor,
Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.

June is, I found out recently, national Pride month. The Pride parade in my city is this Sunday. The timing was entirely coincidental, though, from my end.

That's awesome about your friend, though! What's his/her story?

Also, happy 1988th birthday (though I see the problem is fixed now, and it says 22 like it should :( )
