Homophobia week X_X
Saturday, February 02, 2013
So my last blog got a lot of attention because of one person posting that i was heading down a dangerous path by having strong feelings for my best friend, and left a link to a gay therapy site.
My GLBT family on here came to the rescue along with my oldest sister.
im so lucky for that =) and grateful =)
but unfortunately the week didnt stop there.
Me and the friend i mention earlier along with living together also, well , work together.
we have been working at our job for over a year, and every day that i have worked there one of my managers (tom) has always been severely mean to me. I never understood why until this week.
I had gone to higher ranking people in my workplace about tom mistreating me embarrassing me screaming at me and i was told that their was nothing to do unless he called me names swore at me or harmed me in someway.
I had done job searching for over he period of a year that i worked there but i had always been so busy between work and school that it was hard to keep interviews and get to job opportunities.
Apperently when my friend was working with a coworker one day, when we started working there. she had confided in her that she is bisexual and also told her other personal information. The next day the rumor was spread that me and my friend were lesbians and were in a relationship. Tom is extremely homophobic as a result he has mistreated me since.
I learned all of that thursday night, friday at school all we talked about was gay marriage and gender identities in my classes x_x
this all has been a wake up call to me to realize that even though the love i feel is pure not everyone sees that and some people feel threatened by it.
