Submission from mushroommagicc:
Its not that I thought I’d grow up to be a man
Its not that I thought I’d grow up to be a woman
From what I could tell neither of those categories fit me
I knew from a young age
That this Adam and Eve thing isn’t really working for me
I mean what about all the kinds of people in-between?
I wanna grow into something none of us has ever seen before
And gender is just one of the ways We’re Boxed in and Labelled
Before we’re ever able to speak who we dream we are
Who believe we’ll become like drum beats forever changing their rhythm
I am living today as someone I had not yet become yesterday
And tonight I will borrow only pieces of who I was today
To carry with me to tomorrow
No I’m not Gay
No I’m not Straight
And I’m sure in hell not Bisexual dammit
I am whatever I am when I am
Loving whoever you are when the stars shine
An who ever you be when the sun rises
Yes I like Girls
Yes I like Boys
Yes I like Boys who like Boys
I like Girls who wear toys
And Girls who don’t
Girls who don’t call themselves Girls
Crew cuts or curls or that really bad hair phrase cut in-between
I wanna bend in thousand directions
Like the Sun does
Like Love does
Like time stopped so hands of the clock
Could hold each other
We held each other like I held
These words for too any years
On the tip of my tongue
I am my Mother’s daughter
I am My Father’s son
I am Midnight Sun
Whoever I Am
Whoever I Become
Mod note: you can hear the poem in its entirety —with onscreen lyrics— here.
okay, probs the last i’ll say about this as i by and large really do watch this show for the music, and i really am not all that invested in the lives of any of the characters, but, just. just, no, this is not how you handle a storyline about a teenage girl being outed as a lesbian in small-town ohio, it’s just not, it’s just SO NOT.
so, here’s a list of everything that wasn’t okay about yesterday’s ep, and the reasons why it wasn’t okay!
- hi, was that an episode about a girl coming out as a lesbian that didn’t once actually use the word “lesbian”? i mean, correct me if i’m wrong, i only watched the episode the once and i was busy trying to lamaze breathe to calm myself, but i’m preeeeetty sure that was an episode about coming out as a lesbian that didn’t once use the word lesbian. not cool, glee! lesbian is not a dirty word; acting like it is just makes people think it is.
HAVE FUN DYING EARLY.
