Update Again!

Pride Bees Post 1

Row 1 - transgender pride, asexual pride, bisexual pride
Row 2 - rainbow/gay pride, lipstick lesbian pride, lesbian pride
Row 3 - pansexual pride, genderfluid pride, non-binary pride

Pride Bees Post 2—-> here.

The bee with the axe is based on one of the lesbian pride flag designs.  Yes, sometimes TERFs use this flag design, but I have also gotten many messages from lesbians that use the flag and are not TERFs. More about that —->  here.

—————————————————————–

op:I have no idea if anyone feels the need for more pride flag colored bees, but here is a few more.

UPDATE: i guess there was a need so MORE BEES.

if your idea of a transgender man is a skinny, white 14 year old wearing a binder with a dyed undercut and a fucking flowercrown then you’re transphobic 

if you call trans men ‘soft boys’ ‘sweet babies’ or anything in the: ‘uwu my little boys’ ‘sweeties’ ‘kids’ ‘boys’ category then you really need to re-evaluate how you see transgender people. we aren’t all children and young teens. transgender adults exist, transgender elders exist, and besides that, don’t you think teens and kids deserve a little more respect?

trans men are a diverse group of people who dont have to conform to your weirdly specific idea of what a trans man is.

we aren’t all thin, prepubescent, white people with cutesy tumblr aesthetics.

grow up and stop with the condescending attitude towards transgender men

So today I realised something -
These skittles are cool, sure. But let me get needlessly deep a sec.
I always thought I didn’t like the yellow skittles, or the orange ones. So if I saw them in the pack I’d leave them or give them to someone else.
And today I’m munching on these white Skittles thinking “oh no I’m going to come across a yellow one any minute” and you know what? I must have come across a yellow one by now because almost the whole pack is gone. But you know what else? I’ve enjoyed every flavour I’ve put in my mouth this morning. I just think skittles have summed up the way things like homophobia work. They see the label, the ‘colour’ and think “wow, better stay away”, but if you take that away, chances are they’d enjoy the different flavours all the same.
Back to your regularly scheduled poetry soon everyone !!

Each sweet puppy is sporting their own pride flag neckerchief. Take home the one that best represents you ♥

Bring one home today!

You know what pisses me the fuck off?

When people compliment cis men they always say “you’re so sexy, you’re so hot”. And when people compliment trans men, ESPECIALLY if they’re pre-t, they just go “PRECIOUS BOY SO SMALL SO TINY SO CUTE AWWWW”

And honestly? It doesn’t make me feel good about myself at all. They don’t even call us MEN, they call us BOYS. Even if some of us are 20 years old, we’re boys. It pisses me off.

I want to be hot. I want to be sexy and I want to be known as a man. A normal dude. Not just some small tiny baby boy who’s so cute and innocent. Fuck that.

If you’re gonna call me “smol cute boy” you’d might as well just tell me “I think you’re a girl and totally different than cis men, and I can’t call you hot”.

Hey! Just because you’re a member of the lgbt community doesn’t mean that you can say whatever you want about other orientations! Or speak over them on their specific issues! You can be transphobic and bi! You can be biphobic and lesbian! Don’t think you can do whatever you want without consequence because you identify with the general category of lgbt!
