whenever i talk about my girlfriend around straight people, a few things usually happen; they go quiet, the atmosphere changes, someone changes the topic very quick, etc. (which are similar “methods” for people to ignore and distance someone they feel doesn’t belong in the group, you know?) i usually say things like “oh, my girlfriend loves that movie!” or “my girlfriend is great at computers so she always helps me when mine is acting up”, ya know, regular everyday things that relate to the topic we are discussing. lately i’ve really started to realize why the entire mood usually changes with me mentioning of my girlfriend - straight people always feel like gay people are oversharing just by mentioning their partner. to straight people, i’m overstepping some kind of boundary just by mentioning that i have a girlfriend. to them, me saying “my girlfriend” is entirely synonymous with me out of the blue saying “i am a lesbian”, a statement that is somehow inherently oversharing and too much information, as well as a real quick and easy way of involuntarily distancing myself from the group that i in that moment am not fully a part of anymore.
Me, a humble fic farmer, tending her plot of land:
neighbor john said there was a shipwar starting just over the hills. what do you think Ma, do you think we'll ever see a shipwar?
Ma, clutching her apron to her chest:
oh dear, I hope not!
Pa, sitting in his rocking chair and smoking his pipe:
hmph! there's always been shipwars and there will always be shipwars. you just keep your nose out of it and mind your own business. we ain't got no business messing around in shipwars. now step to it! i want that field of headcanons and plot twists plowed by morning! and keep those plot bunnies from getting at the smut, we can't afford anymore WIPs!
If you, in any way shape or form, tell trans men not to “identify as” (be) men, or “discourage” them from “Identifying as” men, or try to “educate them” about how “identifying as” men is inherently harmful, you can fuck right off.
This both goes for “Oh no poor dypshoric females being brainwashed by the Trans AgendaTM” TERFS and for “Ewww men are gross be nb instead! Also be as femme as possible because masculinity is icky!” MOGAI hell.
