Study Well

Submitted by Patu, the model and photographer.

“I am a second year art student majoring in illustration. I finally came out as lesbian to my parents last year. My dad’s response? “Just study well.” .. They both love me very much and have accepted me for who I am, although I know deep inside they hope that I’d change.”

    Your post reminded me of my favorite academe joke: After a rigorous physics class, the professor went to his office. It wasn’t his regular office hours, but he found one of his freshmen physics students waiting for him there. She was young and quite obviously though of herself as very attractive. He invited her in and when they were both inside, she came up quite close to him and said in a breathless, sexy voice: “Oh, professor, I really need to pass this course – I would do _anything_ to pass it. Just tell me what I can do….”

    The professor leaved toward the young woman and said in a deeply fatherly voice, “Will you study?”

    Your Dad seems like a good person. We need more of them.
