Bats set listies: 090813 - 100613 (Soapbox Derby Edition)


I have been going through some shit, guys.

We all have, I suppose.

But yes, that's what's massively delayed updating this thing.

I would just like to publicly apologize to anyone who's felt I've been icy or rude to them, this past month or so.  I have been needing to keep to myself and meditate on a lot of aforementioned shit, but all around I'm evening out.  

I also don't really use this thing as a soapbox.  That being said, it was National Coming Out Day, recently. I didn't really share my story.

Look. It's like this:

As a lesbian, my pool is small.

As a goth/punk-ish lesbian, my pool gets even smaller.

And as a (quite frankly) awesome goth/punk-ish lesbian, my pool gets EXPONENTIALLY smaller.

So, let's just say, it can get rough, and very lonely at times.

And when I officiated things with myself and decided to inform the rest of the world who I really am, I accepted that it would be very lonely and hard. It already had been, leading up to that point, anyway.

But I had to answer what's right for me.

And I have put up with some shit from numerous sources.

I have had to deal with insecure friendships.

I have had to deal with sexual guilt, frustration and humiliation.

I have had to numb my strongest sense of being to not get beaten down by that in of itself.

But I have also grown into a very strong, resilient young woman.

And in doing that, I have experienced at least one amazing woman who makes something shoot through my body that makes me feel beautiful, and worthy of a warmth my body and soul craves. It makes up for the bullshit--which is an Everest, at this point.

And that's how I know.


Also I used to have pretend romantic dinners with an imaginary girl at the age of six.


So, thanks.
