What’s on the vagenda this fine Sunday?
I’m in NYC staying with my good friend and his partner. I made them go to a feminist exhibition yesterday, that my friend liked it is a sign of why he’s been a good friend for many years :)
I have a minor grumble. My friend’s partner keeps repeatedly telling me I’m such a lesbian, completely out of context of anything relating to sexuality. I am used to (many, certainly not all) straight people that know me acting like I’m straight but usually gay people don’t act like I’m just gay if they know my sexuality. I’ve known the guy for 10 years now... lesbian and straight are both great but I’m neither. It’s just a bit jarring? I don’t even talk about my sexuality much because I usually am not attracted to people unless I have a connection with them. He keeps saying it out of nowhere. It feels uncomfortable because I date all genders and he knows it. In the grand scheme of things I’m sure it’s not a big issue but it feels like who I am is being deliberately ignored. If he could just shut up entirely I would be very grateful.
