Why do I suddenly think of Enaql Tvyrf? :P
Now, let's get you through the day and the next year without anything Whedonesque ;)
"I thought it was gonna be like in the movies -- you know, inspirational music, a montage: me sharpening my pencil, me reading, writing, falling asleep on a big pile of books with my glasses all crooked, 'cause in my montage, I have glasses."
SMG with glasses and brown hair ♥
You have to understand that I was outed, and that the vast majority of reactions I got to people finding out I was gay were violent, crude, and vicious. I wish I had someone express shock for five seconds, and then sit down and tell me quite earnestly that it does not matter, that they cared for me unconditionally.
I really can't understand people reacting to the new of someone being gay like that! The person doesn't change. He/she isn't suddenly in love with you (well, not usually ;), what is the big difference?
I'm just really glad I never had any such reactions when I "came out", albeit my coming out was a bit different, since I actually came out to being female - making me gay in the progress as well, but nobody seemed to mind that part ;). Most reactions I had where disbelief, most did not see this coming. Some did, and there definitely where signs before that I wasn't who I pretended to be, but everyone was surprised, obviously. But nobody disapproved, everyone understood and was supportive - even though I was counting on reactions much worse.
But I really can't stress enough that I really can't imagine getting violent or vicious reactions. And I just wish I could have supported Mark during that time...
(I knew I'd like you the moment I saw that series list on your Tumblr :p And that picture of you is kinda cute! ;)
He seems to lack the depth, mostly by design of course, since he's basically a programmed being, and that just doesn't do it for me... Oh well :P
(The only spoiler there is that she played Buffy's mom, but I guess everyone here knew that already ;)
