Happy birthday to me.
Every time I look at the scar on my forearm, it brings me back to the lowest point in my life. Suicide.
My thoughts on Prop 8
Proposition 8 was a California ballot proposition and a state constitutional amendment that eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry. In May 2008, the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage violated the states constitution that “Only marriage between a man and a women is valid or recognized in California.” On November 4, 2008 the voters passed this proposition that defined marriage in one man and one woman, thereby eliminating same-sex couples.
People like to assume that gays have a choice in whom they can feel attracted to, and in reality that’s not it at all. Many people actually believe that gays could simply choose to be heterosexual if they wished. Additionally, many people continue to believe that homosexuality is about nothing but sex, considering it to be simply a sexual fantasy.
The reality is that homosexuality is much more about love and affection, a mutual attraction than it is about sex. Being gay is part of that person’s core identity, and goes right to the very center of his being. This is something that few heterosexuals understand but I strongly believe that same-sex couples should have the same rights as different-sex couples. Meaning, if getting married is what they want then who are we to stop them? It may not be what people want, or what people believe in but how is it hurting them in any way?
I just made the biggest mistake of my life. I know sometimes you just have to take a risk, but I don’t think this risk was the right one.
The tease is just bittersweet. The way your hand lies on my back, the touch of your hand rubbing against mine, I just want you to notice me.
A girl had a seizure right in front of me. I really hope she’s okay. She overdosed on Depression Pills, and ended up having a seizure in front of the whole advisory. It was so scary, and watching one of my friends cry so hard over her made me cry. I just cried, and then blanked out.
