it has always struck me as both intriguing and amusing when people ask me what my sexuality is.
i speak of this in a positive, and wholly curious note. i recall the latest instance someone had brought this up. it went on like this:
“maia, may i just ask you a question? what is your sexual orientation?”
this was asked to me in a completely blunt and seemingly interested manner that it made me want to chuckle.
but i didn’t.
what i did instead, is come back with this:
“why do you ask?”
the kid then responded with,
“nothing really. i’m just curious.”
and i understood that. because it isn’t the first time i received that question from those who didn’t know me so much.
i actually find it incredible that they have the guts to ask people such questions without hesitation.
the only thing i wish they gave me when i asked them why is a very blunt reason. it irks me to this day as to how they leave me hanging with their observations about me.
