How Often Do You Read Books?

  • Every day - I'm a massive bookworm.
  • At least once a week.
  • Only when my TV's broken and the Internet isn't working.
  • Hardly ever - unless it's for school.

Every individual has different personalities.They can understand when you come out to them,or they will not.It's really simple. I'll try to be as honest as I can.... People should really not be judged by their gender or any kind of stuff a man can judge,except their personalities.Take an example of the Black-African slaves.People were destroying their lives so that their lives are easier.It is really bad for us,but it might be good for the people the slaves worked for.The Black people had no choice but to obey,for they were to be executed if they don't. But,Even if some of the People had slaves,they would not be rude to him (Mainly men were chosen for heavy work,please do not be offended by what I said). It's the same with today's aspect of coming out. Your relatives might think that being anything other than Male or Female is bad for you,for the world might discard you because of you being a special snowflake.They are but right for the most part.We've come to the point of not even trusting our own world. But then again,You will have company to support you; Your friends,some of your relatives,and even whole organizations (i.e : somewhereto_ or GLBT Nationial Support Center) This is a cruel world we live in,but at the same time,it can be gracious. The point is,everything has two sides.One good,and one bad.It is your job to know how to get to the good one,even if you stumble on the way. After all,You are not alone.
