I spoke to a coworker today about the differences between my brother and I. It really got me thinking. We were raised in the same house under the same circumstances in the same school system. All things considered, I should be just as ridiculously conservative as he is. So… Why am I not?
I really think the root of it all is my queerness. Even before I accepted who I am, I accepted all of the people who were not accepted in the social circles that exist in small towns. I would just like to take the time to thank God for my queerness because I fear that I would be just like my brother if I was not.
