I got a ‘bi pride’ shirt in the mail and wore it today

my mom immediately launched into the “I don’t wear a ‘heterosexual’ shirt so why do gay people need to advertise their sexualities so loudly” spiel and proceeded to call us attention-seekers

it’s kind of disturbing to see a very wise, mature woman that I look up to spew the same vitriolic garbage that a thousand teenage straight boys repeat on the internet all day long

I asked her if she thought pride parades were silly, too, and she said yes because “you should be able to just be gay without shouting about it all the time”

she ended the conversation by saying that I wasn’t even gay and that I was just doing this to be cool… well, she got one part of it right, at least
