one of many reasons why “QUEER” means so much to me.

[ IMAGE: a long, white image with “QUEER” faded in rainbow gradient in the background behind text written using various fonts in various sizes, colors and line-weight reading “sometimes identity is a journey. so far mine has gone something like this – – HOLY SHIT, i’m BISEXU– wait, no, i’m PANSEXUAL! oh, but demisexuality? i’m DEMI-PANSEXUAL! but wait, what if i’m a LESBIAN??? no, WAIT! i’m NOT EVEN FEMALE!!! (no shit sherlock! plus you like who you like of any gender!) oh god, not even demi, TOTALLY ACE after all… shiiiiittt… panromantic ace! biromantic ace? PANro and BIro ACE! lolol wtf was i ever even thinking??? OF COURSE i’m a BI (sans ‘romantic’) & PAN (sans ‘romantic’) ACE. but grayro? quoiro? BI-PAN-GRAY-QUOIRO?? ugh, what the fuck ever. i’ll use whichever word(s) whenever it feels right to do so, but QUEER is the one word that has ALWAYS felt right. - Vesper 09/23/2016" ]

look I love when girls cover ‘take me to church’ and don’t change the pronouns, but can we PLEASE stop saying that it somehow 'makes’ the song gay???? The song is about institutionalized homophobia. 'Take me to church’ has ALWAYS been gay, regardless of the gender of the singer. Saying that a female singer makes it gay completely erases the fact that it was never straight in the first place.

so @delphyc and i were talking about andrew being a Strong bf and being able to pick neil up, so imagine:

  • the first time it happens is on court when neil is injured. he’s clutching his leg and breathing heavily, trying not to cry because he’s had enough broken bones to know what it feels like.
  • he’s freaking out a little bit, but then andrew is there, his expression tight and eyes narrowed slightly, snapping at the other players when they come too near. neil feels the panic slowly subside.
  • the referee tells him they need to get neil off the court, and andrew flat out refuses to let them touch him.
  • how to resolve such a difficult situation i wonder
  • he asks ‘yes or no’, and when neil gives a pained yes, andrew gently wraps an arm under neil’s knees and one under his arms and just picks him up!! no effort at all!!
  • andrew is angry bc his bf is hurt and that is Unacceptable (he’s also trying to plan an escape route out of the state, maybe the country, because if neil is never able to play again then ichirou can’t have him), but he’s still so gentle with neil. they’re such soft bfs it’s unreal.
  •  turns out that it was an undisplaced fracture, so no permanent damage, neil just has to wear a cast for a few weeks. (they ask him what colour he wants and the fucking nerd chooses orange. andrew rolls his eyes so far back into his skull)

They’ve built themselves a home.
