Color guard is such a weird thing. Like, who was the first person who was like, “You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna take a bunch of fourteen year old girls and teach them to throw guns in the air.”
And then you know they had to have one friend off to the side going, “Nah, son. That’s easy shit. You gotta give ‘em swords."

Biphobia manifests in a number of different ways in the LGBTQ community, where getting into a heterosexual relationship is a form of betrayal. My last girlfriend was an oddity and a curiosity amongst my friends, as if I were the gay best friend she just happened to be dating, and her friends assumed we were dating for the threesomes. Such stigmas and misconceptions around bisexuality are so rampant that I don’t often disclose my sexuality to the partners I date. If I feel comfortable “coming out” to them, sometimes it’s a non-issue, as if I were telling them I had blue eyes. However, it’s more often than not a dealbreaker. A guy I was dating once told me that he “could never date a bi guy,” because he felt like he could never be enough for him. A bi guy would always want something more.
I’ve also heard that bisexuality is a “hippie new age affectation” and a “cheat,” as if you only have to come out halfway — but bisexuals will have to continue coming out for the rest of their lives. They will have to repeatedly explain themselves, which can be exhausting when you have to deal with prejudice both outside your community and from the people you expect to support you. Unfortunately, this won’t be the last time that Gaga will have to remind us that she’s bisexual, fighting for her place in the spectrum. Lady Gaga belongs in the LGBTQ community, waving a flag alongside the rest of us. It’s biphobia that needs to be erased."
Doc says I have been a good li’l patient and worn my prism like a champ, which is apparently unusual—compliance with the glasses is a major problem she deals with, even in adults. Compliance is definitely NOT an issue for me—I’ve been living with this double vision so long that I never want to take the prism off, even in the shower! :D
Anyway, rambling, so since I’m a good li’l patient, the doctor adjusted the prism one last time and set the surgery date: January 7, 2014. She would do it sooner, but since we’ll be traveling over the holidays, we decided it’d be best to wait. I am so nervous and excited all at once!
(While I was waiting to be examined, I found a cute storybook about the surgery. It was obviously written to help little children having the procedure understand what’s happening, but it was surprisingly reassuring and informative even for a grown-ass woman. Just let me take the picture book in during pre-op and I’ll be just fine. Also, for a couple weeks, my eyes will be scary and red like I got punched real hard and I plan to use this to terrify everyone I encounter.)
1. My brother built me a laptop. Gave it to me outta nowhere on Thanksgiving. It runs on Linux. I feel like a right proper nerd now. I guess this is a sign it’s time for me to start weaning myself away from my bricky ol’ laptop and live in the now, man.
2. Boy!bff is here briefly to steal a quick visit while he’s here visiting family in Gainesville. First time I’ve seen his face since I got my prism patch, and I’m having the same emotional reactions to him as I have with all the other people’s faces I’m “meeting” for the first time in a while. I haven’t seen his face proper since 2008. (Yup, he’s as pretty as I remember.)
3. I cleaned like crazy for four hours yesterday and I am very pleased with myself. Y’all should come over and hang out before it’s all cluttered and gross again in here.
4. Thanksgiving was just fine. Had to shut down fandom wank arguments between Logan and his brother, before I killed them both, but otherwise pleasant. The Minis and I saw the Disney version of “Robin Hood” for the first time because my friend was appalled I had neglected my children’s education by not showing it to them. (I don’t really care about Disney, so it’s never occurred to me to have the girls watch the movies.)
