    out of my system.

    It's all the little things, and the weight of what can't be said, and the fact that I can at least talk about Story From Random Stranger without outing people or airing out things where someone WILL ask 'well couldn't you have done more then?' (as if I haven't asked myself that staring at the ceiling at 3 am after apologizing and receiving 'you did what you knew to help, no need for it' absolution, in one case most likely to lead to that question).

    And people like these idiots probably are, who don't have to deal with The Stories, who weren't close enough to someone who was coming out to have to help someone deal with the first unkind words that weren't just targeted on guesses and stereotypes... they don't get how deeply LYING about the sorts of things some of us DO stay up until 3 am remembering sometimes actually HURTS even the people who weren't the targets of the real events, including the friends and family bystanders stuck with the emotional support duties afterwards.
