I went to a local high school today with some friends from the rainbow alliance to talk about Our Lives and Trials as Members of the Queer Community ™. We go twice a year to talk to a 10th grade health class, and it’s always a lot of fun.
The most interesting part for me is really the questions that some of the students ask. My favorites:
“So what can a woman do for you that a man can’t?”
-I looked at the girl next to me and burst out laughing; couldn’t help it. We managed to stammer out something reasonable despite wanting to say “Oh, honey, if you don’t know we’re not telling you.”
“Do you identify as a player?”
-That one was directed towards just me. Wasn’t expecting it- if I had, I would have said that I was a big lesbian pimp or something. Alas.
“So what gender kisses better?”
They’re always very respectful and the questions are generally great. I am going to be teased about my “identity” for awhile, though. Heh.
