National Coming Out Day

Today is National Coming Out Day. So:

I’m bisexual. I’m an atheist. I’m kinky. I suffer from situational depression.

I think y’all already knew all that. But just in case.

    I’m an atheist who’s still in the closet for professional reasons. I worry about losing my job if my fundamentalist Christian boss knew I was an atheist.

    Coming out as feminist is riskier than coming out as atheist.

    I am white, as such belonging to a minority in the country where I live (Suriname), male, non-believing since 35 years and an atheist since 25.
    I never had a coming out because I don’t needed one – being a non-believer and an atheist never was an issue.

    Next year I will suffer from a situational depression too – my son (and only child; he will be 18) will leave for The Netherlands to continue his study. I want him to, but I already miss him at beforehand.

    I’d come out as something but that would require me to first figure out WTF I am.

    I guess I’ll come out as a lost cause.

    I guess I’ll come out as a guy who takes a lot of erotic photos of insects.

    Here are two beetles making love on a wild prickly rose in Alaska:

    Hope it cheers you up a little.

    1. I am an atheist.
    2. I am a sober alcoholic (if you hadn’t guessed).
    3. I was born to love women–especially brilliant, older ones (not so relevant as I teeter into old age myself).
    4. I have long-term mild depression.
    5. I am currently reliving having my heart crushed to dust when I was 18.

    I try to live my life ‘out’ in everything and everywhere I go. 1 and 2 seem easy. 4 and 5 don’t come up naturally. 3 is where I am still a total fuck-up.
