So I met this girl freshman year…well I didn’t really meet her, she was a friend of a friend. She sat behind me in 7th period English and I only talked to her when she needed to cheat off me during the quiz. (Everyone cheated off me) I thought she was a bit strange, she used to poof our her hair and make like a mullet sort of thing. She was really pretty though and I always forgot her name.
Sophomore year came around and in 1st period I realized that I’m sitting right next to her, damnit, I don’t know her…atleast her hair looks normal now…weeks passed and we got into so much trouble together in that class because we wouldn’t shut up, and we became friends really fast. Throughout the year we hung out during lunch and were being odd with Zac and Kaitlin. We got a bit closer because of a certain guy. Nothing like that, we both just needed some serious mental health.
We decided to have an experiment. Seeing as we go to a Christian school, how would people react to a lesbian couple on campus? So we made out Facebook status “in a relationship” and we held hands and stuff where no cameras were and to whomever asked “we were a couple”. Sometime around then she started to like me, and I started to like her. Through formspring we left eachother messages pretending to be anonymous and asking eachother to act more “couply”.
A month or so passed and we were in the mall, in Hot Topic (in front of the jewlelry) and she told me she had a crush on me. I didn’t really know what to say so I kinda kissed her and changed the subject. Another week or so passed and I was talking to her on MSN and I decided that I wanted to be with her. Really, not a fake relationship which was pretty much real. I asked her to be my girlfriend.
Not even a month passed and I felt that I loved her, so I told her. Talking to one of my friends I began to question if I really did “love” her or was it just over infatuation. A month did pass and I realized I do really love her and nothing could change that. My version of 15-year-old love. 
A few days a go I relapsed and I cut myself and she found out. She was so upset that I don’t know what happened. I was terrified, I had promised not to hurt her, and I had but hurting myself. But I’ll never do it again.
Two months in 10 days and I’ve never been happier. She showed up randomly at my house today to make sure I was okay, and I almost cried. I couldn’t actually imagine someone caring about me as much as she does, and it scares me a bit but its there and its true and theres nothing I can do about it. And frankly, I don’t want to.
I’m a horrible writer, so if you’ve read this far, bless you. 
At this point, we’re stronger than ever and I hope we stay this way forever. I guess this is all due to 1st Period History, huh?
I love you Emily, I love you so much.

I’m so happy for you ^^ I think it’s absolutely incredible that you’ve found someone who loves you and who you love back. You two sound adorable, and I bet you look adorable too. If you want, I’ll still include this picture in the collages even if it doesn’t show your faces. Message or reply about your answer please :] Thanks so much for submitting!

kuhlayoh-deactivated20110812-de asked: Besides Canada, where can gays get married? Anywhere in the US? My girlfriend and I want to seal the motha'fucking deal (:

10 countries have full marriage equality, although there are more with some rights or commitments similar to marriage. As for states, full marriage equality is available in 5 states; Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, and New Hampshire. But there are many other states with civil unions or protections for same sex couples. The links will show you all these :] Good luck! :D

EDIT: Washington, DC, although not a state, has full marriage equality! Thanks to http://rubbingtheimpossibletoburst.tumblr.com/ for reminding me! :]

Anonymous asked: I'm a little bit confused. You say that Christian doctrine states that "being gay" is not a sin, only gay sex is. I feel like you've mentioned that you're a Christian (sorry for the misunderstanding if I'm wrong). Is this something you believe?
Also, I must say that I really respect what you're doing on this blog. Have you ever thought about taking on a staff?

Actually, I’m not a Christian. I just know a lot about Christianity from going to a Catholic school and having a Catholic boyfriend whose uncle is a bishop. I do not believe that being gay or that gay relationships/sex/marriage are sinful, but some of my followers do and I want to try to be inclusive to all Christians. Personally, I don’t want to take on a staff, at least not at the moment, because I really wanted this blog to be my own and not to let anyone post something that may be hateful, ignorant, or just not in my style of Tumblring (ie, not pornographic for instance). Maybe one day, but for now, I think I do a pretty good job maintaining it on my own, and of course with the help of many submissions :]

Help To Pass ENDA!

Countless LGBT people have lost their livelihoods because our government has failed to take swift action on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act  (ENDA).

  • In 29 states it’s still legal to fire a worker for being lesbian, gay or bisexual.
  • And in 38 states, a person can be fired just for being transgender.

This is not acceptable and we won’t stand for it!

Speak out now to end workplace discrimination:

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121
Ask to speak to your Members of Congress and urge them to pass this landmark civil rights bill immediately. Tell them that you are a constituent and that you vote!

ENDA is being held up in committee by indifference and right-wing extremism. If we do not pass this bill by the November elections, we will have to start all over again next year in what will likely be a more conservative and hostile Congress. 

In the meantime, LGBT people will continue to live in fear of losing their jobs — and the financial security of their families — simply because of who they are and whom they love.

We will not be denied our basic rights any longer. The time has come to demand our right to work free of harassment, prejudice and fear. And we need you to join us in sending a loud message to Congress that further delays on ENDA are unacceptable.

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and urge Congress to pass ENDA now.

arcanehope asked: The you so much for quoting The God Box in one of your previous questions. I read that book and was absolutely astounded by all the things I didn't or didn't take into consideration. I am not a christian, nor am I religious, but I do believe there is a higher power. I just don't know what that higher power is. The God Box started what was for a me what I like to call a "biblical exploration" in which I have begun to explor different aspects of the bible and different religions in general. I am sure that you already know this, but I discovered that most people take their religions completely out of context. Thank you for "Fighting the good fight" as they say.

I loved The God Box too. I just read it recently and was blown away by it. I go to a Catholic school, and that’s probably what started my interest in learning about how Christianity/LGBT issues relate. I was ignorant like most people and believed that Christians believe being gay is a sin and that’s that, but I’m so glad I took my research to a deeper level. Thanks for writing me! ^^

keikosfountainoflove-deactivate asked: Like...OMG! this is such a wonderful blog! I've read the recent posts to some questions, and I must say, the creator of this blog is a very smart person! I'm bisexual [female] and am a christian. I do think that "being gay" is not a sin. Since when we say "being gay" pertains to a person, however, homosexuality is, because it doesn't pertain to a person. BUT!! jesus christ loves the "sinner" not the "sin". Am i right?

First off, thank you ^^ 

I assume you’d be a ‘Side B Christian’ as you don’t believe God permits homosexual relations/relationships. And actually, it wasn’t Jesus who said ‘Love the sinner, hate the sin.’ That was actually St. Augustine, who lived a few hundred years after Jesus was alive on Earth. What I like to say to that is a quote from The God Box in which Paul, a Christian, asks Manuel,  a gay Christian, what he thinks about the quote and he says —  

What about it? I mean, think about it. Isn’t it like saying, ‘I love left-handed people but hate that they’re left-handed.’ Is that really love? Or is that saying, ‘I’m willing to love you as I’d like you to be, not as you are’? Either God’s love is unconditional or it’s not. Besides… Did Jesus ever say, ‘hate the sin’? Or was his message, love the sinner and forgive sins, for who of you is without sin?

“HOMOSEXUAL DOLPHINS

One of the arguments made by homophobes is that humans are the ones deviating from their biological imperative to procreate and that we don’t find animals engaging in gay coupling. There’s more homosexuality than you can believe going on in the wild.”
