Are queer people different than everybody else?
Recently I was on a second date with a woman and I mentioned a wedding I would be attending soon. “I don’t know the brides well, but it should be fun,” I said.
“Oh,” she said, “so it’s a GAY wedding?”
I laughed. “Yeah. I mean, it’s a wedding. Weddings are weddings.” I was half-joking.
Three days later we were texting when she sent a follow-up question that must have been bugging her the whole weekend. “When you said what you said about that wedding…was that an attempt to have LGBT people blend in with straight people?” she asked.
