blupyglet: by the way, what is my family reputation?
KLC53846: the first one is yes, and after the first time I took a psych class and studdied women and how they think and feel
KLC53846: lets see
KLC53846: family reputation huh...
blupyglet: be honest
KLC53846: always comming up with strange things off the top of your head, I'll confess that most of the family thinks that you are at least a little... Bi
KLC53846: you are hard to predict
blupyglet: lol really? i know the strange things part... people tell me i'm like that all the time
blupyglet: but does most of the family really think i'm bi?
KLC53846: for a long time you seemed really depressed about everything
blupyglet: i was, i tried to hide it
KLC53846: yes, they aren't sure of it but they have their suspicions
blupyglet: well their suspicions are accurate... just don't tell them i said that
blupyglet: i'm 90% asexual, 10% bi... that's how i define it
KLC53846: your secret is safe with me
KLC53846: as long as what you do makes you happy thats all that really matters in the long run
blupyglet: even though i don't really "do" anything...
KLC53846: not for lack of curiosity
blupyglet: and i suppose if i wear my rainbow brite shirt next time i see anyone they'll really suspect something...
KLC53846: mmmm, yeah
blupyglet: and the rainbow shoelaces
KLC53846: that might do it
blupyglet: and my "sorry i missed church, i was practicing witchcraft and becoming a lesbian" shirt
blupyglet: oh gosh i'm so obvious it's funny
KLC53846: oh well
blupyglet: my parents haven't really asked about anything, but if they haven't figured it out by now...
blupyglet: gosh, this is hilarious
KLC53846: I think they have figured it out and are just going to take a long time to come to terms with it
blupyglet: does everyone think it's a bad thing?
blupyglet: i'm surprised they haven't asked about it yet
KLC53846: no, it doesn't seem like it, it's just different and kinda taboo
KLC53846: I don't think any of the parent types would talk to you about it, I don't think their generation is comfortable with talking about things like that
blupyglet: yeah... i don't think the family would outcast me if they all knew the truth, they'd just be weird about it
blupyglet: it's not like i've done anything wrong
blupyglet: i'm mostly innocent
blupyglet: i think i'm the weirdest person in the family (which says a lot...)
blupyglet: and i'm darn proud of it, too
blupyglet: i like being me.
KLC53846: you might be, but I claim a close second
blupyglet: hmmm... we'll see... next time we have a big reunion (we NEED one...) i'll see how weird you really are...
blupyglet: so how long has the family suspected that i'm not straight?
KLC53846: about a year
blupyglet: hmmm... just your section or the east coast ones?
KLC53846: pretty much all of them
blupyglet: oh wow, that's hilarious. i mean, you rarely see me, and i'm really quiet and secretive. so what prompted the suspicion?
KLC53846: the lack of male involvement
blupyglet: (i did accidentally leave my "but i'm a cheerleader" dvd at barb's house)
blupyglet: oh yes, that would definitely do it
KLC53846: thats an interesting movie
blupyglet: but males aren't interested in me anyway, or at least they don't seem to be
blupyglet: it's silly and makes fun of homophobes, that's why i like it
Well, it's the day of silence so I'm being silent (vocally anyway) until 6 pm. After that, I need to talk, since we're discussing submissions for the next Golem journal and I want to be part of the ed board. Both my classes were cancelled today, which should give me time to work on homework due tomorrow and study for the 2 tests I have on Friday (Back to back! Gaaaaaaaah!). That is, once I pry myself off the computer...
