I do things really slowly.
I don’t jump in headfirst most times and rarely do I make the first move, say the first thing, or give the first glance.
Things are deliberate and things are delicate and I want so much to explain that these things are not strange.

The silences and pauses are the times when I think that I am wrong.
Listening and speaking and breathing and thinking are all what I like right now.
Leaping forward isn’t my style.
A course of action is best determined after each minute aspect is evaluated.
Determining if I have worth and have willingness is an ongoing process.
Lifelong friends still do not know about the home my ears have in my shoulders.
Love and affection burrow deep within my muscles and won’t come out until I’ve exercised every last bit of lactic acid out of them on my own.

It’s not uncommon for people to come out as gay after being in heterosexual relationships. But when the gay/straight binary is so enforced, these storylines become a media trope that disregards bisexuality. Because Drew is now partnered with a man, he must be gay–no one mentions the idea that Drew could be bisexual. When closeted people only have the option of coming out as gay, as opposed to bi or queer, we perpetuate two harmful tropes: that there are only two sexual orientations, and that the gender of your partner determines your sexual identity. — Eradicating biphobia within gay communities and gay media (via cbrachyrhynchos)
