Mental note

No matter how much experience your gaydar has accumulated in seven years' of San Francisco, no matter how stereotypically your students act (love of musicals in boys, love of mechanics in girls), it is not your job to out them, especially here in New York, where people are surprisingly repressed about these matters.

This is my weekly Sunday mantra before I teach. Because, let me tell you, it can be difficult.
