I've read so many entries this year from people who were concerned about reactions to their being gay, or how worried they were about it.
I was actually considering dropping my paramedic program because I'm worried about the guys being uncomfortable around me now that it's out that I'm gay.
Then I wrote an entry in some communities about this being the year to take action.
And it got me to thinking.
I want to start a new movement.
Let's make this the year of Fuck 'Em!
Who gives a fuck what anyone thinks? I mean, if you don't bathe for 3 weeks and someone thinks you're gross, that's one thing.
If you eat your boogers in a public restaurant and people vomit at the sight of you, that's understandable.
If you're simply an insufferable asshole, that's an issue that you should care about.
But if people just have an issue with you being gay, being who you were born to be...
If so called friends turn their backs on you because you're a fudgepacker or a beaver hunter...
If family can't love you anymore because you're attracted to the guy with a bigger schlong or the girl with bigger boobs than yours...
No more tears. No more worries. No more being afraid.
We're here for each other. I don't know most of you, but you know what? If you're gay or straight, I still care for you. I don't care who you sleep with (unless it's Steve Sandvoss, then I'll have to slit your throat for taking my man) and it's none of my business. It's the internet, but it helps knowing there are others out there going through the same thing, who know how I feel, who are willing to be my REAL friends and family when the rest of them turn away from me...
So, let's do this. Let's officially make 2005 the year of Fuck 'Em!
The people agreed, so we've created this community and Fuck 'Em here and we can share our stories of Fuck 'Em.
