“You say, “Everyone deserves to be equal,” yet you don’t realize…
There is such a thing as skinny-shaming.

After gym class a friend of mine start talking about gender roles
Girl:Boys should never wear pink, its a girl color.
Me:There is no such things as boy colors and girl colors.
Girl:Yes there is, if a boy wears pink it obviously means he's gay.
Me:No it does not!
Girl:Calm down, no need to get your knickers in a twist.
Me:I will not calm down! Do you not remember that I'm queer, or how offensive that is to me?
Me:Exactly, who cares whether a boy wants wear pink or blue! Who cares if a boy likes playing with dolls, or playing dress up. Who cares if a girl wants to play with bugs, or roll around in dirt. Our gender does not define our actions, we do. Gender roles can kiss my little Scandinavian ass.
