I'm Coming Out
Note-If the gays and lesbians can do it then so can we!
Gotta a deep dark secret I just have to reveal
Seems to be in thing to do nowadays
So here goes
May not be happening on the cover of the Rolling Stone
May not be as famous as him
But I'm just as talented and just as sure
When I make my shocking announcement
There's gonna be a rather large group of people who care
Too long I've hidden
Too long I've been ashamed
Keeping from all of you
The truth of who and what I really am
Well, no longer
I've made up my mind
If Adam can have the courage to do it
Then so can I here today
Bold, brave and ballsy
Out of my designer shoe filled closet
Here I come
Ready, willing and able
At long, long last
To state once and for all
Proudly for the record
This is who I am
Not gonna be so secret anymore
Not after this oh so very public move
Loud and in your face 
No more waitin'
No more holdin' back
Just to avoid offending some way too uptight, straightaphobic people
And so here ladies and gentlemen it is
If you have't already guessed the truth is......
I am Ramona Thompson
A woman born and raised
A woman who just can't get enough of....MEN!
Yeah, that's right
I'm S-T-R-A-I-G-H-T
Not B-I or G-A-Y
And certainly not T-R-A-N-S-E-X-U-A-L
No matter what you may have heard
So just deal with it!
2009 Ramona Thompson

like tia says, it's entertaining - and isn't that the whole point?

Well..that was interesting...

Though I am not sure the same principle applies...People tend to assume you are straight unless they know better...hence why "coming out of the closet" for LGBT is often difficult, when friends and family assume something that they really are not.

So...I guess this would make sense if people are assuming you are LGBT..other than that, I'm not sure I get it.

Entertaining though.
