I’m From Dallas, TX.

While I was on a school bus on the way back to school from a field trip, I heard some people call others “homos” and “gay.” After not being able to stand this for half an hour, I finally told one of the offenders, “Calling someone gay or a homo isn’t going to make a difference.” Seconds after, one girl held her palm up to her mouth and said, “Oh, is Will gay?” Others followed, “Yeah, he’s gay!” and other stupid bullcrap. I just sat quietly on my bus bench seat, without a word, and continued with my silent reading of The Bell Jar.

A day in the life.
