I have a Sister thats a Lesbian, I love her to death, but she is the biggest, meanest bytch I've even known, with the exception of her girlfriend.

I'm not saying all of them are that way, but all the one's I've met are mean to others.

How many gay friends do you really have? Two?

I'm not an angry lesbian. I'm an angry person who happens to be lesbian. My anger and my lesbianism have nothing to do with each other.
Really? If asked I would have described you as bright, strong, entertaining with a good sense of humor. Neither anger or lesbianism would have come to mind first. I don't hate you either.

That's why it's never a good idea to label somebody just because of one aspect of their life. Lesbianism doesn't define who I am. It just means I prefer intimacy with another female. Other than that, I'm as different as everybody else :)

I don't generally do that. However, this thread asked a question about a group of people who share one aspect and I stated what I have observed about the group in question. Someone started this thread for a reason and I hope that people will read it and understand that some of the anger could be the way they they approach others. I never used absolutes. Everybody is different. When I describe myself I don't include heterosexual in the description and I feel that the gay/lesbian community would benefit by doing the same.
Obviously I haven't read everything you've posted but what I recall was that at some point you simply stated that you were a lesbian as fact and were not defensive about it. I also don't recall anyone attacking you for being gay. I really enjoyed you and Angel joking around. If everyone was as comfortable in their own skin as you are I think there would be far less anger coming from or directed towards gays and lesbians. I'm not saying there would be none. There are always going to be assholes out there who knock others down to make themselves feel important. I'm just saying it would help.

I am what I am. The only reason that people on Topix know I'm lesbian is because I told them. I'm not ashamed of it. It's normal to me.

I'm on campus now. I've met a lot of people and I haven't told any of them that I'm gay. Nobody asked. It's just not something that comes up in general conversation. So far, the only difference between me and the rest of the student population is that I have a prosthetic leg. I've had questions about that but nobody has asked me about my sexuality. It is as it should be.

I agree!
My Dad was a quadruple amputee due to frostbite when I was in second grade. Both legs about mid-shin. Left hand gone. He had a hook. Right hand all the fingers and half the thumb. It barely slowed him down. He rode my bicycle to teach me how. He water skied. He taught me to fish. He rode horses. People would sometimes see his hands missing and still guess his feet weren't real.

I remember one time the little boy across the street was peeking in the front window watching him use his hook. Daddy invited him in and showed him how it worked. He was awesome and I miss him.

We all are dealt different cards in life. We all can either do well with what we have or be angry.

I was angry long before I lost my leg or knew that I was lesbian. I'm Asian and was mostly home schooled by tutors but when we were in the US my parents would enroll me in school. I was always the new girl with the funny eyes.

I heard a cool joke about a hook. Let me see if I can remember it.

A sailor and a pirate were drinking in a bar. The sailor pointed out the peg leg, eye patch and hook on the pirate and asked how he got them.

The pirate said, "Well, we were boarding a merchant ship, guns blazing and swords slashing and me leg got hit by a burst from a blunderbuss. Cut it off right at the knee."

"Wow", said the sailor. "What happened to your hand"?

"Well", said the pirate. "When me leg was cut off I fell forward and grabbed the barrel of a canon just as it was fired. Blew me hand clean off."

They drank for a few minutes and the sailor asked the pirate, "What happened to your eye?'.

The pirate said, "A seagull shat in it".

The sailor said, "You lost your eye because a bird shit in it?"

The pirate said, "Well, it was me first day with me hook."

That's hilarious! I wish he was still around so I could tell him that joke.

I was an angry child too. I was the littlest kid in my class. I was the skinniest kid in my class. I was the first one to get glasses (they were pink, REALLY) I was the first one to get braces. I was little, ugly and smart. Why not just paint a target on me that said bully me?

Then I grew up. I think all of that ended up making me a better, stronger person. I'm not angry anymore. I'm just good.

You got bigger, lost the braces and pink glasses.

I'm still an angry teenage Asian, atheist, lesbian, amputee.

I won't always be a teenager and I hope I'm not always angry but I will always be the rest and if people can't handle that, I will always be an angry Asian, atheist, lesbian amputee.

Now I'm old. I'm still short, my teeth have gone to hell, I have glasses and nobody my age is pretty. I'm just not angry.

If you allow them to make you angry they won, you lost. If you allow them to control your emotions, they won, you lost.

Don't let anyone control you! Fcuk um. The only one you can control is you. The only people they can control are the ones that allow it. Don't allow it.

It takes too much energy to fight with the idiots who are only putting you down to elevate themselves. Use that energy to elevate yourself and make a wonderful life for you. It's the only life you get. Enjoy it.

Thank you!

I had purple hair a couple of months ago. That's my favorite color. For the 4th of July I found a troll doll pic with red white and blue hair. I'm getting a lot of compliments on the pink though. I might keep it for a while.

IRL I'm blonde enough that the grey doesn't show too much. Even if it takes over I think I'll leave it. I've earned every one of those grey hairs.

Then again...... I just might dye it purple. Why not?

Grey hair is cool. If I was older..........I'd be Emmylou's stalker :)

Mine seems to be having a hard time with the grey too. I should have more than I do. My younger sisters got it all and I do rub that in.

Thanks for the songs. I saw Willy once a long time ago at a bar in Evergreen Colorado, kinda before he was famous. The place made first place 10 years in a row for the worst ladies room in Colo. They deserved it too. I brought my own toilet paper. It's called the Little Bear.

I actually met Myrle backstage at the Grand Old Opry. My Uncle got me and my sister passes. Only time I've ever been to Tennessee. My grandma was real sick and we went to see her. It was a long time ago. Met Minnie Pearl and Grandpa Jones too. Grandpa Jones had hearing aids in both ears and still couldn't hear a word you said. Got to shake his hand though. It was awesome.

I've never had the pleasure of meeting Emmylou but I am definitely an admirer. She's the best! Thanks again for the songs.

I'm headed to bed now. Remember, I'm old and need all the beauty sleep I can get. Good talking to you Tam. I'm thinking purple..........
