Similarly to previously mentioned characters, Callie also comes from a strictly Catholic Latina background. She has a more difficult coming out process as her father first disowns her after hearing the news, but eventually he learns that no amount of praying will pray the gay away. With the help of her girlfriend Arizona, she's able to truly embrace her sexuality and show us that being gay is not simply a choice.
There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
