| | Re: To what extent should I come out?
I wish I had come out in high school, solely because I feel I would be more comfortable with it at this point in my life. I didn't start coming out until the tail end of college and now I have to do a lot of back peddling to friends who have known me as straight for so long. But my high school is very liberal and I wouldn't have had much of a problem with it as far as ostracizing and stuff goes. I'm sure my skater-punk friends would give me a lot of shit but I was one of those guys that was in like every social circle. Our school had a gay-straight alliance club and everything so its a completely different environment.
All the cute boys are straight and all the hot girls are lesbians...gotta love the challenges life throws at you
