so last night, at about 10pm, i was walkin in the gay area of columbus to a coffee shop to wish our friend the best for her engagement that happened thsi weekend while she was in beautiful, but cold, san francisco. This car drives by and we hear this girl shout out fuckin faggot! Yet, it doesnt even affect us. We are just like....okay....and i shout out, well duh!!!! This is the first time someone ever called me a fuckin faggot or imposed any negative hate speech on me. But it really didnt bug me. I sorta jokingly said, the bitch got a laugh out of it, so did i. So i thought okay maybe its just me. My friend Chris was cool about it also. Chris and i are somewhat polar opposites. he is very feminine. I get the whole butch stereotype given to me. Yet both of us were not even that affected by it. We went and had a good laugh and we told our friends who were like OMG. Perhaps, we can see it as to us being sensitized, but when i hear it happening to other people, it really irks me. So anyone care to explain how i can be so affected when i hear people pulling that hate shit in general and to other people, but when it happens to me directly, i could care less?
