This is the most recent story I finished. I hope you check it out!
Here is a little taste of the story:
I paid the cab driver once again as I stepped out onto the sidewalk taking a deep breath as I walked the short distance to the door. I knew my father would be up, he could never sleep past sunrise. I knocked on the door, I waited for what seemed like forever but eventually the door opened. My father stood before me a look of surprise on his face. He was in his red robe with pajama pants and a white t-shirt visible. I didn’t see his newspaper so he must have set it down.

I just watched this movie on netflix. It is so great. It makes me wish we had such honest depictions of trans people in American movies. I encourage anybody who’s interested and/or has netflix, to check it out. It’s the story of a transgender boxer (MtF). Throughout the movie the main character is referred to as a transvestite and the pronouns do not change until the final scene, but these things aren’t done in a derogatory way and everything else in the film is extremely respectful and honest.
Movie recommendation from a friend of We Are the Youth!
This happened yesterday while I was in WalMart.
Male cashier with multiple tattoos (two of them are colored in with rainbow):
How are you this evening?
Pretty good. Starving, obviously. How are you?
Not bad. I can't wait to get off my shift and get home to my boyfriend.
Woman behind me:
Wait, you're gay?
He seemed like such a wonderful man, it's a shame he's gay.
Why is it a shame?
It's wrong! It's immoral, it's dis-
Excuse me, but what's it to you if he's gay?
But how does it affect you?
Where exactly does it start to make sense that it affects you? A relationship is between 2 people, not 3.
*sputters a bit, then leaves without her food*
. . . Wow, thank you.
Ignorant people are the reason I claim to be allergic to the human race.
