Just watched G.B.F. yesterday, and it was hilarious despite the fact that I can barely understand their girl language. Fawcett’s my favorite of the three queens because behind her bitchy-rich facade, she actually rocks at chemistry and other science-y stuff.
Watching the movie made me think of my own coming out moment and what happened after people knew. Thankfully, I never became that fabulous accessory that girls wanted. I never even became all fashioned and fabulized like Tanner. Sure, some of my girl friends thought of me as their GBF, but I never actually served the purpose of one. I was never one to enjoy shopping with and for girls, to know how to please men, or to act and sing (I can dance, though).
After I came out, I just kept on being me. That scientifically-inclined, nerdy, artsy-fartsy, Latin-dancing me, though a bit gayer and less inhibited with my thoughts on boys. And I couldn’t be any happier. I may not turn heads with my glitter and sparkle when I walk down the hallway, but at least I know that whatever I have become and what I am today is authentically and completely me. And that’s how I want my life to be
P.S. I find Tanner pretty cute, and I personally admire his decision with Brent to not jump into a relationship, wisely foreseeing that it can’t possibly end well and would probably ruin their friendship. Yeah, I should be happy with what I have right now.
