PSA: I don’t care which ship it is or what actor/actress it is, you are embarrassing yourself, embarrassing everyone who shares your ship, embarrassing the entire fucking fandom, and making that actor/actress uncomfortable if you’re that asshole who wastes one of the few questions that gets to be asked at a con on a shipping question

The trouble with explaining what queerness is (to your parents, to straight cis people, to your friends, to yourself) is that as soon as you define queerness as this or that, you have lost it. Once you pin queerness down and establish boundaries of what queer is and what it means, whatever that is isn’t queer anymore. It’s a solidified identity, which is precisely what queer isn’t. And so you have to go in search of the queer again. Every time you try to pin it down, it escapes you: that is queerness’ power. I won’t go so far as to say queerness is the search for the queer, but it is perpetually in motion. This makes people uncomfortable. Being queer can feel a bit like sea-sickness sometimes. Some people may even doubt the existence of the queer, given this notion of queer as horizon (as outlined by Jose Munoz). However, I would argue that unlike saying “Queer is…” saying “I am queer” does not limit queerness in a way that eliminates it. Instead, it enacts the notion of queer as horizon: it opens queer up to the infinite possibilities of your future. It understands your present as one of the possibilities of your past future. To say “I am queer” is not to say that queer is only what you are, but that you are an iteration which can and will expand queerness. You are a queerness which has never heretofore occurred, and all your potential is the realm of queer horizon of being. So the academic understanding of queerness does not destroy queer in lived experience. Queer continues to exist in the potentiality of queer-identified bodies. That is what, or where, queer is.

Pretty sure TFW would miss an entire week of hunting and research because Dean would insist on catching every minute of shark week.

guys seriously don’t criticize the album or the boys so hard. it’s their very first one and they started working on it so long ago when they were all teeny teens. they do it all for us and because of us, so don’t put them down, don’t say harsh things because they do see everything. this is so important for them, so just don’t fucking let them down on this

wait. if i dont believe in God, in Catholicism's eyes I don't go to Heaven then? ((((that seems really harsh)))) im not trying to be disrespectful i just want to know if i understood that right? id be punished for my lack of faith, or in C.S. Lewis terms i'd always live in the grey town???

okay, here is my counter-question, because I get asked this a lot both in real life and on this blog and I am perpetually baffled by it:

If you don’t believe in God, why do you care what any religion thinks will happen to you in this afterlife they’ve cooked up for themselves? In an atheist paradigm, religion is misguided from get-go, with the whole “believing in a higher power” thing, and everything from follows from that premise is just as false. So why is your fate in this fiction important?
