Never Fall For A Straight Girl

Improved Essays
There are few things I know for certain in this world. The sky is blue, everybody dies eventually, and I am gay.

My parents were way more accepting of it than I expected. After spending nearly half my life in the closet, I let it slip out one night. Bowling, of all things. You have to understand— I’m the world’s worst bowler. I can’t throw the ball down the middle of the lane to save my life. And so, after yet another toss into the gutter, I turned around and announced to my parents that apparently I bowl as straight as I am.

That was four years ago. Currently, the issue is that I have broken the first rule of being sapphic— you never fall for a straight girl.

I always imagined my first kiss being some awkward, frantic thing with hormones flying like confetti and tongues going everywhere. It is not like that.

I find that I enjoy kissing Kitty Matthews much more than I could have ever imagined. Her lips are soft, and taste sweet. There’s a salty tang, blood from biting her lip so hard just a moment ago. When she pulls away, I can see the sparkle in her eyes. She beams, and the faint light slipping in through the blinds catches on her teeth.

“I liked that,” she whispers.

“Me too.”

“Winnie, I’m not straight.”

“Me neither,” I giggle. “Can we do that some more?” This time, I duck my head, so that my mouth meets hers— chaste and sweet. We fall asleep with her head tucked into the crook of my neck, my arm slung over her

    In “Laughing at Mr. Darcy: Wit & Sexuality in Pride & Prejudice”, Elvira Casal celebrates Elizabeth Bennet’s laughter. Casal justly describes how Elizabeth’s laughter in the novel equates to flirtation and eroticism. However, if flirtation and eroticism were the only significance for the role of laughter in the novel, the status of Elizabeth Bennet would then be reduced from being Austen’s heroine of Pride and Prejudice to being a sex object. Elizabeth’s laughter is different: it creates a sense of breaking off relations with others. Elizabeth’s laughter also represents her autonomy as an individual; whereas most characters in the novel laugh in a way that evinces their dependency on others, Elizabeth’s laughs evince her independence.…
