Struggles of a Gay Kid

Yesterday a 17 year female, who attends Lancaster High School in California, was beaten by a football player, on school grounds, for being gay. After receiving over a dozen blows to her jaw, head, eye and head, all he received was a 5 day suspension by the Lancaster School District. She suffered from a fractured jaw and multiple concussions to the head and the Deputy Sheriff advised her mother to re-think her wanting to file charges against the football player because her daughter pushed him back. The school ended up documenting “assault” charges on the victims school file, NOT the football players!!! To make things worse, the Deputy Sheriff warned the victim, by saying, “Just so you know, if you file charges against him, I’m taking his side.” We’re attempting to raise awareness and bring this story to light because Lancaster High School is trying to sweep this “Hate Crime” under the rug!

Reblog if you care and please forward to everyone you know. P.S. CBS, KCAL 9 news are running the story tomorrow at 10pm.

Sickening.

Dear straight people,

dear-straight-people:

Stop acting so baffled as to how a lesbian could fall for a butch girl. No, [redacted] is not ‘practically a boy’ because she wears boys’ clothes and keeps her hair short, nor is her girlfriend any less gay for loving her.

Remember this video the next time you use the word gay as a derogatory adjective.

Happy National Coming Out Day guys! No matter your flag, I hope you can be proud of yourself and I hope you can all have the courage to come out at some point (that is, if you haven’t already). 
Just remember that there’s no pressure to come out on this day. Let it take time. You’ll know when it’s right. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. It may not be next year, but you’ll know. 
And, of course, if you ever have questions about coming out, my ask is always open.

Questions

Hey guys!

If you didn’t already know, if you have any (and I mean ANY) questions for me or if you need any advice, I’m here for you.

It doesn’t even have to be about LGBTQ+ issues. If your cat ran away and that upsets you and you need someone to talk to, I’m here for you.

My ask is always open and private unless asked otherwise.

I love a you guys! You’re all very special and important and I hope all of you are fairing well and if not, then I’m here to help you out.

Peace, love, and chicken grease,

~John

Anonymous asked: They say to trust your instincts right? I'm in love with my best friend who's straight...of course. My instincts tell me there's definatley a chance he's bi or gay. I've been waiting for him for 2 years. One more to go and we'll be out of highschool. Everyone tells me he'll come out by then because there will be no immature high school kids to judge him. I hope their right. Thoughts?

I have multiple, conflicting thoughts on this issue.

First, he may not be. I know there are often some indicators (and those are NOT the stereotypes, they’re simply behavior that sets off an idea) of somebody’s sexuality, but you can never know for sure unless he tells you.

Secondly, I don’t know if your friend knows about your sexuality. If he does, then it may be wise to ask him about his. Be careful if you do this though because there’s a slight chance he could be offended. He is your best friend (from what you said) so he shouldn’t be offended if you word it correctly (“Hey I’m simply asking, don’t be offended but…” or “Hey, can I ask you something? I promise it isn’t a big deal…”). However, if he doesn’t know about your sexual preference, he may be less inclined to tell you. In this case, you should either tell him or just wait.

I hope everything works in your favor!!

Don’t put too much stress into it though. We all have someone waiting for us. If he isn’t the one then you’ll find the one soon.

God bless and good luck! If you need any more clarification or have another question, feel free to ask! :)

I think I need to clarify that this blog is only about the struggles of young lgbt+ people.

Not anything else.

Not abortion, not religion, not women’s rights, not even kittens.

I’m not saying this blog is against any of those things. It simply isn’t about that.

Please refrain from using those topics in your submissions.

Thanks guys.

Just another reminder that this blog accepts submissions…

You don’t even have to use the submit button, guys.

You can put it in an ask.

I may take a while to get it done (kinda busy lately) but I promise eventually I will.

Well, that is if it meets the qualifications.

It probably will.

That is all.

Get to submitting!

Well, thanks for the reblog, at least.
