Homophobia...How To Deal

We've all had to deal with it. The constant sniggers, the unnecesary comments...etcetera. Let's face it: it sucks. All that goes through your mind is, "I WANNA BOUND THAT ASSHOLE'S ASS INTO THE GROUND!" But if you do that, it just makes things worse. You're just giving those losers ammunition against you. Now people can say, "See? I told you...Gays are evil." I'm not saying that you shouldn't defend yourself. Oh, no, quite the contrary. You have a right, just as they do, to be yourself. How would they like it if *you* teased them for being hetrosexual? They'd probably hate it as much as we do. But you have to realize that this person isn't even woth your time. I mean, what kind of pathetic dork actually has the time to go out of their way to make fun of people, just because they're different. What's the point? Don't even bother with them.

However...if your recieve physical abuse, you need to tell someone. That just isn't right. You also have the right to file a police report against that person, if need be. Don't EVER accept abuse. YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT AND WONDERFUL PERSON! YOU JUST CAN'T LET PEOPLE DO THAT TO YOU.

Allright. I've said my piece. Now go out there, and be proud of who you are!


Ways to calm down


Ok, homophobia isn't cool, and it's ok to be mad. But instead of holding in all that rage, and not knowing what to do with it, I've got a few ideas to make yourself feel better for a while.

Exercise. Get out all of that pent up energy by rollerblading, swimming, going for a jog, or even just doing a bunch of jumping-jacks.


Take a bath. At times, there can be nothing more relaxing than being submerged in warm water with pink bubbles. Heck, why not throw in some tea and a cheesy novel, too?


Pamper up. Dealing with those poops can really give a heavy blow to your self esteem. Feel better about yourself by doing your nails, using a mudmask, soaking your feet, etc.
