just for the record: “aphobes” (ace exclusionists) don’t think that 1) asexual/aromantic people do not exist, or 2) that they do not need a safe space. of course we think you exist (a lot of us ARE ace/aro). of course we think you need a safe space. just NOT LGBT. that isn’t for you. make your own. LGBT is for trans people and people who experience same-gender attraction. a girl, idfk let’s name her: becky, a cis heteroromantic sex-positive asexual (or becky who has sex with her boyfriend happily but doesn’t feel attraction) is not LGBT. however, susanne, an aromantic homosexual, is LGBT.
why do you want to be in the LGBT space anyway? MAKE YOUR OWN. THIS ISN’T FOR YOU.
AND WE DO MAKE THE RULES. WE ARE LGBT AND WE MAKE THE RULES.
I can hear my town’s high school marching band from my apartment almost every night. From pre-season through now, it’s like I can feel the confidence they have gotten from their practice. Their playing is so much bolder, more enthusiastic, more fun-sounding, and it honestly just pumps me up. I have favorite songs from them and I don’t even know what any of the songs they play are.
You guys work hard and put in long hours, and your dedication and skill is obvious even through my apartment’s windows half a mile away, so even though statistically you are not in my town’s high school marching band, you’re in some town’s marching band, and I bet you sound great, too.
A continuation of this post I did earlier for BoB Week. @trailsofpaper had left such nice and supportive tags that I kinda wanted to give it a go and try drawing a kiss. Unfortunately this is as good as I can do, but I am quite proud of it and at least Skip looks more like Skip in this one than he did in the last one…
Zach DeWall is a guitarist of Set It Off. He is often glossed over due to Cody and Maxx being a bit more popular with fans. That’s why an appreciation post is necessary.
Zach is probably the funniest member of SIO. He has quick wit (often seen in interviews when he makes throwaway comments under his breath). If anyone’s seen We Gonna Set You Off, you would probably already know this.
Zach is also a talented guitarist. The fact that he just loves to play music and doesn’t really care what anyone else says is so inspiring. He’s also offering guitar lessons over skype which goes to show how much he wants to help others achieve their dreams in music, and help them along.
Why else do I like him? How happy he looks here:
He’s such a ray of sunshine.
And it’s so obvious that he loves what he does and that he’s thankful for where he is.
He’s just such a dork. He’s practically a giant teddy bear.
