When I came out to my roommates, I asked them if they knew anyone who was homophobic. I knew they weren’t but just wanted to steer the conversation in that direction so it wouldn’t be so random when I finally told them. They said no and asked me if I knew anyone who was and I said, “I hope not because I’m bi.” I must’ve caught them off guard or said it super quietly because they asked me again, so I repeated myself. They just said, “Okay” and proceeded to talk about why McDonald’s fries are the best.
