Good grief was I a sheltered kid. I’m still thinking about my post from last night where was talking about when I first realized I wasn’t cis, and holy shit.
How does a person go until high school without hearing that gay people even exist? I know I pulled it off somehow, but seriously? My first exposure was in Sunday School when my teacher said that two men or two women should never be able to get married. I played along so as to not be lectured since the concept was new, but the whole time I was thinking that:
a) two men or two women can be together like that?
b) why the fuck shouldn’t they?
Well, actually my first exposure was when I was three and went to Disney World during the “gay days” for my birthday but I really didn’t give half a shit or process who was in love with who then. All I really cared about was that heck yeah, it’s Disney World and there’s characters I love EVERYWHERE and RIDES and SNACKS and waaaay too much fun stuff to do so who cares who else is here.
