       Yeah, you read right. I'm bi, but at the time that I wrote this, I thought I was gay.

    Itís written in the girlsí bathroom
    on the mirror in angry lipstick the color of hatred,
    laughing as I stand there, staring.
    The stalls are littered with it in permanent marker.
    And there are flyers hanging on every wall
    with it written in thick, black ink.
    It drips like acid off the tongues of
    no-nothings and morons with narrow minds.

    I see their minds like tiny corridors,
    all the doors shut and everything dim.
    But there are others like me, non-discriminators,
    supporters of Jews, volunteers for the pooró
    people who care.

    I imagine my mind like a grand hall,
    doors wide open with various themes
    and diverse peoples living, breathing, being
    in each one like a million tiny worlds.

    They see everyone as crammed together
    in a single tiny, bland corridor, all faces covered in the
    same masks, plastered to their faces like
    cement stuck to the skin.
    If you rip it off to be yourself, you rip off everything,
    and you are ugly and bloody beneath.
    They open a random door for only a second,
    tossing you outside like a creature
    of such disgusting status that none can bear
    to look at you., let alone know of your existence.

    I see everyone spread about as a magnificent
    celebration with different views, opinions,
    and, yes, even costumes of crazy schemes
    and silly face paint.
    If you take the superficiality off, you see the truth beneath:
    That we are all the same so we open our arms,
    reaching out to draw you into our world
    like you are the way you are.
    You're our very own.

    So when I see the words
    "Sarah is a FAG"
    written in lipstick on the mirror,
    I take the time to wash it off.

    When I see the permanent words on the stalls
    Stating either false or true that
    "Katie M. ATE OUT Sam Walter,"
    I take the time to scratch it out.

    And when I see the signs hanging in the halls,
    their black ink seeming to graze my eyes
    as they confirm
    I take the time to remove their judgement.

    And when the teacher asks why Iím late
    for her " more important" class,
    I answer by holding up the sheets and saying,
    "Iím gay, and I was offended.
    Is that a problem?"

    And when she says nothing at all or tells me
    how "inappropriate" my words are, I will smile,
    saying nothing more because I know
    that Iíve been heard by someone listening in that room.

      Mojy! This is amazing. I'm so happy I came across this. You describe narrow minded people perfectly.

    I find it amazing that you would do a lot of the things you said. I don't know many people that would, but now I at least know one. :]

    Nothing like that has happened at my school, but I have empathy for you. Some people can be very cruel just about something very pointless. I don't understand why others have to judge so harshly. >.<

    It makes me smile that you can stand up for yourself and show others that you aren't afraid of their opinions. This writing was extremely inspiring. I love it.

      I hate how people are such ass holes like that. Always making fun of people who are different. I've been there, it hurts. Hope you pull through!!
