The saying goes that behind every successful man there’s a woman, which I don’t take much stock in since a woman doesn't have to be with a man to be successful. However, if that were about a gay guy getting through high school, I would agree!
I speak only for myself, of course, but the only thing that got me through four years as a stupid, sexually confused adolescent were three strong young women. We were all weirdos, and we were all wonderful.
