This cashier today stopped mid-convo with my mom and looked me, then looked back at my mom and was like ‘she is SO beautiful!!!!!’ and it was so cute and sincere and wow I’m going to tell every pretty person I see that they are in fact gorgeous bc here I am in bed hours later and I keep thinking about that compliment and giddily smiling

‘I’m tired of people asking when I “turned gay”

Over the last two years I have been asked this countless times, however this is not a question to which I believe there is a definitive answer – it was not a process of turning, it was a process of falling in love. Fixating on the notion that to be gay, you must have at some point ‘turned’ from being straight is nonsensical and society’s obsession with forcing people into neatly labelled boxes is unproductive. Everyone should be free to simply be who they are and find happiness however they wish on the basis of who and what they are drawn to, not on the basis of which quaint little box society has decided they ‘belong’ in.’
