Today we had this fun conversation
Maia: (on Andrew's two pierced ears) now you can dress as a girl for halloween!
Andrew: I wouldn't want to dress as a girl!
Me: why not? It's fun!
Andrew: Yeah, but you dress as a girl every... year.
...I had reasons to not come out, right? Good ones. Ones that didn't involve my ineptitude at coming out. Right? Possibly involving persecution and ignorance and people not believing.
