Bisexuality is not a mistake

Let the churches scream we’re wrong

They’ll hate me for writing this song

Blood flows from my wrist

All we did was try to kiss  

And you’ll scream

You’ll yell

You’ll tell us we’re mistakes

This isn’t fake

You say we’re selfish

For liking both

But you were fine when I liked him

But now that I love her

You scream that it’s a mistake

The world is a fucked up cruel place

It’s odd that people like you will be missed

And people like I will become examples

Something to reblog

To talk about 

To feel shame or guilt

But there would be no shame or guilt

If you opened your eyes and saw

We’re real

We’re here

Just look.

ON STILL USING LABELS THAT NO LONGER
FEEL RIGHT, or I’M NOT SUPER FAMILIAR
WITH SPORTS METAPHORS BUT HERE WE GO 

what do you do when the trophy
doesn’t make you feel good
anymore, but
you’re still proud of winning it?
when you remember the blood
and the sweat
and the hours of practice that went into it?
does it belong on the shelf?
does it belong in a lightly mildewed box
in the garage?
how do you forget
the way you clung to it
the first time someone placed it
in your hands?
how do you put that behind you?
are you supposed to?

Planned Parenthood is fucking amazing, y’all. I haven’t been there yet…but just talking to their HRT line on the phone…

They used my respected name right off the bat. Called me Riley all the way through. Used he/him pronouns. Didn’t slip up once. Asked me and “What’s your legal name? I’m sorry I have to ask that.”

Then asked me “Now is it okay if I send things with Riley Roswell to your home?” not wanting to out me accidentally and then “Is it okay if I send stuff with planned parenthood labels on them or do you want me to be discreet about it?” knowing there are people who could get in trouble with family or partners or others for going there.

OH MY GOD I’M GOING TO CRY AND THEY DIDN’T JUDGE ME AT ALL

THEY WERE TOTALLY ACCEPTING AND ANSWERED ALL MY STUPID FUCKING BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT HRT ABOUT WHAT THE APPT WAS GONNA BE LIKE

AND SHE WAS SO KIND AND SO UNDERSTANDING

AND SHE RESPECTED ME SO MUCH AND I WAS SO HAPPY

I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE LIKE THAT EXIST IN OUR WORLD.

OH MY GOD.

AND I’M GOING TO BE GOING TO THIS WONDERFUL PLACE ON THE 29TH!!!!!!!!

Do y’all remember when Hayley Kiyoko released the Girls Like Girls music video and it blew up on Tumblr? Well this is Dodie Clark, she’s a YouTuber and has been making videos/music/vlogs for quite some time now. Her VEVO account is new and this is her first music video and I think it deserves more recognition than it’s getting. It’s about two girls! Falling in love! The arc of their gay story! Please watch it and like it and tweet Dodie to tell her you like it she deserves every view and like and subscriber she gets.

Remember that queer history is global. There is not one country in the world that has no queer community and no queer history. No matter what the laws may be queer people have always existed and we have always made history and never let anyone tell you differently.

Younger me: I’m straight

Guy: *shows interest in me*

Me: shit fuck nope not doing this shit not today

Younger but slightly older me: I’m gay

Cute girl: *is lookin like she bout to make a move on me*

Me: sHiT sHiT no I can’t do this wtf I gtg

Me later: But if I don’t want to be with girls… and I don’t want to be with guys… What Am I.

Ace/aro community: *slowly chanting* one of us. One Of Us. ONE OF US.

Note to all ace/aro people: my post about how all of you are inherently LGBT (if you want to be) has just hit 3,000 notes.

Of these, roughly 100 have been negative. I have gotten numerous replies to it from ace/aro people stating that they’ve faced exactly no “discourse” in real-life LGBT communities. Every single one of the ~2,900 notes remaining were purely positive from people standing in solidarity with you.

Don’t let any of the assholes here on Tumblr make you feel unwanted or excluded. We want all of you here. Every single one of you. Yes, cis and “het” a-spec people included. Those trying to stand against you are a small, insignificant trend that will fizzle and burn just like everyone who used to stand against me and mine being in the community.

All of you count.

All of you matter.

All of you are welcome.

All. of. you.

a little note for everyone:

you are allowed to be LGBTQA+ and religious 

it is ok to be both

they are not mutually exclusive 

and when people jokingly refer to being gay as sinning,

don’t pay attention to them

because they don’t have religion in their lives the way we do

you are also allowed to be questioning, 

“"How can I serve and love God the way I want to while also being my true self?”

because guess what?

not every LGBTQA+ person is an atheist or a non-believer

so here’s a shoutout to the Christian LGBTQA+

and the Muslim LGBTQA+ 

and the Jewish LGBTQA+ 

and the Buddhist LGBTQA+

and every other religion that you may believe in

religion can coexist with your sexual identity and your gender identity

you are loved by God and by me
