I was sharing about the presentation. This student shared about hers. Talking about my presentation caused her to out herself as straight. It was smooth and came up naturally, but I started thinking: Did she think I asked her for lunch to ask her out? Crap! That was not at all what I was intending.
I am getting two reactions to me outing myself.
- People need to share that they are straight (98% of the time I know this). And pretty much everyone needs to share with me or remind me of this.
- The person shares something equally personal or usually even more-so. They are dating someone who was divorced, they were abused, they had a mental health issue of some sort. Sharing begets sharing I guess but it seems it's more personal than what I shared.
