National Coming Out Day

A fragment, in honour of National Coming Out Day

Nessie, Come Out
TTTO: “Nessie Come Up” by Dr. Jane

Nessie, come out, you’re gay, dear
We’ve known you are gay for sometime
Please don’t resist
No no, we insist
Don’t be bashful, cause we think it’s fine
The truth is, my dear
You’ve always been queer
The truth cannot be denied
Oh Nessie, we think you are, think you are, think you are
Nessie, we think you’re divine!

(I’ll get my coat…)

The SMS Kettle

It must be getting time for Christmas, because the odd gift ideas are starting to pop up everywhere. PG Tips has announced the “ReadyWhenUR Kettle”, an SMS-enabled kettle you can switch on from your mobile phone.

A spokeswoman for PG told Ananova: “It could revolutionise tea-time. Now there is no excuse for not putting the kettle on.”

But why exactly you would want this function is something of a mystery to us. After all, it isn’t going to fetch your favourite mug from the cupboard, rummage around for the last teabag and combine all the relevant ingredients once the water is boiled, is it?

It’s good to know that top scientists are on top of important research and development like this. We truly live in a modern world.

Only $2700. What a bargain.

I am…

I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage.

I am the girl who kisses her girlfriend on the sidewalk and laughs at those who glare.

We are the couple who planned and studied and got a damn good lawyer and BEAT the state that wanted to take our child away.

We are the ones who took martial arts classes and carry pepper spray and are just too dangerous to gay bash.

I am the transgender person who uses the bathroom that suits me, and demands that any complaining staff explain their complaint to my face in front of the entire restaurant–and shares with my other trans friends which restaurants don’t raise a stink.

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of “homosexual” until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don’t have to be afraid. You can handle it. You’re stronger than you think.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.
