Most of us leave there mail open for hours, or you put the "away" smiley face on your messenger while you go to the market, but now you need to think twice! Being cautious about your gay life is something you should work on and protecting on a continuous basis, and leaving such a mine-field like that could destroy you, it's the space where your gay friends and gay-related mails nest, and it's such a hazardous place for anyone to see but you, and you need to be careful about it. So ALWAYS SIGN OUT FROM YOUR E MAIL AND YOUR MESSENGER when you get up, even when you hit the bathroom.

What's that all about?! A lot of people have family, friends, BFs' all in one messenger list, in fact, most! And we tend to forget about that, and that's when you go writing a comment like "missing the sale is hard, but what's harder is being gay!" and bam, there's where family or straight friends read it, next thing you know, it's the hottest gossip on campus, then you're OUT to everyone by accident! So no more such obvious comments unless you have your own gay messenger, other than that, try to camouflage it, or change any words that could reveal you're gay!
