Joking or not joking, I don't think this type of ignorant mockery should be taken lightly. If a comedian were to mock someone else's "coming out story" in his/her show, would the same people still laugh - they are trying to get the same effect as this loser is.

Let me tell you people a little story and this is actually a true story I read on one of those online journal things (could be LJ or Xanga, I don't remember right now), but there was this son of an owner of a restaurant and he's known to be a real joker and also clowning around bringing his friends to the restaurant and having a jolly good time. Now one of workers there who have been worker for quite some time is gay and everyone knows so. And one of the night the son of the owner was there with his friends, the gay guy's mother was there as well. And everyone who works there pretty much knows the guy's mother because he frequently visits and what not. So the son of the owner that one night calls the mother over to his table and tells her something along the line of "your son likes it up the ass, right?" and he laughs and his friends laugh and all the mother could do was smile because she was embarrassed by this.

I don't mean to be rude or uptight or whatever else you may want to say but the son of the owner was just trying to be funny, no?

yknow, life is a lot easier if you lighten up a bit.

that story is entirely different than this. joe didnt go up to your mother and say "your son likes it up the ass".


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

yes i understand that it wasn't to the degree of what happened in the story. and i'm not uptight. there are just certain things that piss me off and this is one of them. how is it ok to mock another post with a serious voice in it using the same thread title just to get people to laugh.

Do people who find this post "funny and shouldn't be taken too seriously" know the difficulty of coming out? If you do, then I'm glad you find it ok to tolerate people who chooses to mock the milestone in some people's lives. Coming out is already difficult enough without having people belittle it by creating threads like this.

As a matter of fact, yes

Need to come out to my parents. And yeah that's the hardest thing right now. But i don't feel offended at all by this post. Some people are way harsher in life, i guess after the things i've been through, a bit of humour does not harm me anymore.

PS: sorry i edited your post by mistake it's corrected now, ah the powers of administrators i don't even control..
