My gaydar works across continents.
On the weekend, I logged in to Facebook to see a message from someone at my high school. It basically said, “I know you live really far away and you probably don’t know and it’s probably none of my business anyway, but is [person from our high school that I used to date] a homosexual?” My brain nearly fell out. I tried to think of what possible responses she could expect me to send back.
- “Yep. Totally gay. I chose to date him anyway.”
- “Yep. He was straight when we went out, but decided to try men after me.”
- “No. He’s just thin and neat.”
In the end I went with pretty much the only answer I could give: “I have no idea. I haven’t seen him in over ten years. And yeah, it’s none of your business.”
