BBP STORIES: It’s happening again and we’re bringing it back right now

East High School



I wanted to come in here and talk about how people seem to use their religion to attack homosexuality. But I’m not even gonna lie. I’m not really a religious person. I don’t—I’m not really a religious person because I didn’t like the idea of how, like, people want to believe in somebody that they’ve never seen before pertaining, especially, to Christianity. And I just don’t like the history that Christianity has behind it.

So basically, I don’t like how people try to use, like, their beliefs to attack other people and they say: “Oh, you cannot be homosexuality.” I mean, “You cannot be homosexual because it’s ungodly or goes against what God wanted.”

First of all, who said I believe in your God? Who said that your God exists? Because God did not write the Bible. I just don’t understand. There’s not an explanation for everything that happened in the Bible. So you cannot sit here and say, “Oh, yeah, well you being homosexual is ungodly.” Also, there was homosexuality in the Bible at some point.

So, I mean, to all those people who want to use the Bible as their, like, crusader or something, and use it as, like, their, their holy grail and say, “Yeah, this has all the answers.” There was homosexuality in the Bible at one point. Although it wasn’t seen as something that was good, it did happen.

So now we’re bringing it back, and it’s happening right now, so you can’t sit here and be like, “Oh, homosexuality is bad. This, that, and the third.” Cause I could sit there and say that you being heterosexual is bad. I mean, I’m a heterosexual female.

But I don’t sit there and go around telling people that, “Oh, yeah, like, your mother is ba—the idea that you have that mother is bad. Or the idea that you have that sister is bad. Or your dog is bad.” That doesn’t even make any sense, cause you can have whatever you want to have. Anybody can be whoever they want to be as long as they are happy with themselves.

That’s it. That’s all that matters at the end of the day.

BBP STORIES: She was my new year’s kiss

BBP STORIES: She was my new year’s kiss

West High School



You know, last January, New Year’s Eve, I was talking to my friend, right? And she was like, “Hey. We should go hang out over New Year’s and, like, just chill, right?” You know, I kind of had a crush on this girl for a while, just a little bit.

And so, I went over to her house. We had a sleepover, right? We were, we’re talking, and I mentioned that I kind of liked her. And she was like, “Oh. I kind of like you, too.”

And we watched some like um—we were on Netflix. We went to the gay and lesbian section to watch like—we found this one musical about it, and so we watched that together for a while. And we’re just sort of hanging out and watching movies the whole night, and it was really nice. And um-, around midnight, you know, everyone’s always all like, oh, with the bae, you know, getting that New Year’s kiss. And I just could only—kept thinking to myself, “Wouldn’t that be a great thing. You know?” So, um—, I was all like, “Hey.” She’s like, “Yeah?” I’m like, “Can I kiss you for New Year’s?” And she said, “Sure.” So um—, She was my New Year’s kiss. And it was pretty nice.

She lives kind of far from me now cause I moved to The Cities, and she’s still like in the burbs. I’m not very good at long-distance relationships, but I really want to transfer to her high school. Not just because of her, but, you know, good education and stuff, things like that. But I think it would be really cute if we started dating.

I remember when we first met in seventh grade, I think. I was her first friend. She’d just moved to Minnesota. And it was, it was nice. And we just gradually got closer over the years. I don’t know if New Year’s is my very first kiss with her. I actually think after a really big summer concert that we go to called Warped Tour, I slept over at her house. And I think that was our very first kiss. But it wasn’t, like, a real one, if you know what I mean, like. The New Year’s kiss was just much more like, “We did this, this happened, and this is a huge thing for us.” And that’s sort of my New Year’s story with a chick that I like.
