i’ll tell you how…
so lets sayyyyyyyyyyyyy…
the rumor about you is that you’re gay.
now you can be as masculine as hell and someone will think you’re gay.
‘masculine” is not immune to the gay rumor.
anyway so the “truth” is,
you are actually gay.
you might be bi.
hell you might be curious.
you have had some kind of “something” with the same sex.
you know this.
i know this.
hell you read the foxhole.
something you did tipped someone off about your sexuality.
it could be the the secrecy about your past/current relationships,
it could just be “you”,
or it could be the fact you’re dating a vixen and real sloppy out here.
your drawz always got blood in them.
ain’t no amount of hemorrhoids in the world…
…then next is the “lies”.
in order for a rumor to really pop,
it needs some kind of story to push it.
its boring to just be gay.
its more interesting if you were allegedly “caught” fucking someone.
the “someone who knows someone that knows you…” crap.
you know that’s always believable.
some people create rumors because you “hurt” them in some way.
maybe you knew the person and they didn’t like how “it” ended.
the best ones are from the people who don’t know you.
i love those ones.
whatever you did to some random dumbass,
they are really fuckin’ upset with you.
like can you get to know me and then hate me?
it causes them to try and ruin your reputation in some way.
remember: “hurt people hurt people”.
dispel the rumors
i personally believe in the “whatever” approach.
dispelling rumors take a lot of energy.
the way i see it,
if no one is talking then you may actually be boring.
let people believe what they want about you.
the best response is truly no response.
