probably the reason I’m a recovering Catholic now and quite Atheistic in my beliefs is because my family forced me to attend mass and sunday school (followed by youth group when I was in high school) weekly, with exceptions only made for illness (and damn, did I fake sick on Sundays a LOT).
a little while ago, I was looking through old photos from youth group and thinking about the people I hung out with during it. and back then my gaydar was just as excellent as it is now. so I’m looking through these photos thinking “hmmm I wonder if he’s out yet. or if she is. oh man, I bet he definitely is.”
so, I hopped onto facebook and BOOM. damn, am I good. almost everyone, more than half, in my little group (and some that weren’t my posse) now openly identify as queer. including but not limited to 3 gay men, 1 bi guy, 1 asexual, another lesbian other than me, and a bisexual lady.
kinda ironic that the Catholic Church breeds so many of us, huh?
