gay bigot

i want to talk about the word “jew” for a hot second, because i don’t think gentiles understand why some jewish people don’t like being called that. this year, cnn had a banner that said “Alt-right founder questions if Jews are people.” now, they’ve gotten a lot of backlash for it, and apologized, but here’s the point: the sentence “Are Jews People?” is very different from “Are Jewish people people?” See, in the second sentence, the absolute ridiculousness of the question is even more clear, because of course a jewish person is a person, it’s right in the name. But by calling jewish people “jews,” it allows certain groups to dehumanize us, remove our personhood. I’m not suggesting we get rid of the term “jew” entirely, but the full word is something to keep in mind when using it. 

Honestly, LGBT+ people want allies, BUT we don’t want them so much that we’ll settle for people:

  • who call us f*ggots
  • think misgendering is funny
  • still use “gay” as a slur
  • think “you need us, we don’t need you.”

We’re not desperate, deary. We just want respect.

People who are valid: trans women, trans men, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, pansexuals, asexuals, demisexuals, queer people, nonbinary folks.
People who aren’t valid: terfs and other bigots

So this happened today
  • Me: There's nothing wrong with being gay.
  • Teacher: It's not natural.
  • Me: It fucking occurs in nature. Therefore it's natural.
  • Teacher: So is cruelty.
  • Me: Well homosexuality isn't harming anybody. But bigotry is. THAT is cruelty.
  • Teacher: What about kids who see them? They'll grow to be gays!
  • Me: They won't. And if they do, so what? Being gay is not a crime. It's not some sort of reprehensible act.
  • Teacher: Still, what about kids adopted by gays? They might grow up thinking it's OK.
  • Me: It IS OK.
  • Teacher: They'll get bullied because their parents, Juan. How can you wish that for a child?
  • Me: If they are bullied, then society needs to change, not gays. Are you seriously blaming the victim? Pull your shit together.
  • Teacher: Well my God doesn't approve of it.
  • Me: Well I don't approve of your god.

This comment has actually made me genuinely want to kill myself im so fucking done with people like this calling gay people fucking bigots because we said gay is only for people with same gender attraction

  • Person who knows no asexuals and has never once looked into asexual oppression and does not know shit about L.G.B.T.+ history or its pointless divisions as it has grown: "Asexuals don't belong in the L.G.B.T.+ community because ace problems aren't gay problems!"
  • Me: "Hey, that's the same thing with which gay people booed trans people off the stage! 'Trans problems aren't gay problems!' Also, L.G.B.T.+ leaders have an obligation to know the oppression that afflicts ALL non-cis/het identities. The Ace community has been your comrade in arms. We've been fighting for L.G.B.T.+ representation as hard as you have, and we haven't just been fighting for ace representation. We've been fighting for gays and lesbians and pansexuals and bisexuals and transgenders and genderqueers and all non-cis/het identities and accepting victories in stride, even if those victories don't include representing us. We've been on your side since the beginning, and we've always seen ourselves as part of the community. You'll be making a big mistake if you decide to kick one of your biggest allies to the curb. And if you still don't believe we're part of our community, that we don't suffer from oppression (which, I promise you, we do), then you're throwing away one of your supporting allies and utilizing the same divisionary bigotry and elitism that gay people used to use against trans people, that homophobes still use against gay people. You are making a huge mistake."

And I cannot stress this enough, back in 2013, when the last gay survivor passed and a couple ace people either reblogged the memorial post or made their own saying “Do not exclude asexuals from the holocaust we would have theoretically been included because there’s a popular theory that a couple lesbians were put in the work shy camps”… even other ace bloggers thought this was in extremely poor taste… but then more ace people decided that was the perfect time to lash out at gay men for being uppity and controlling the lgbt community and holding the keys and trying to make everything about them, and these bloggers seethed about how much they hated the selfish privileged mean bigoted gay men…

ON THE DAY THAT PEOPLE WERE PAYING RESPECTS TO THE LAST GAY SURVIVOR OF THE HOLOCAUST 

Ace tumblr has always been viciously and irredeemably evil. And no, we haven’t fucking forgotten. 

The LGBT Community And The Church

(I already posted this on Deviantart a long time ago, but I felt I should post this here too.)

I know I’m gonna get loads of hate for this, but I feel led to post this.
Recently I’ve been hearing more and more stuff about lgbt people against Christians who believe same sex marriage and transgenderism is wrong. They called us gay haters, homophobic, bigots, and a slew of other bad names. But that’s not what we are. I know there are some who call themselves Christians that either accept lgbt as ok, or those who truly do hate these people. But neither approach is right. They’re not being godly by doing this. (for those who profess to be Christian and think transgenerism/same sex marriage is ok, I urge you to read Romans 1:18-32 and pay special attention to verses 26 and 27. And read it from the New King James version of the Bible, not the newer versions that are more than likely watered down.)

The fact of the matter is, transgenderism and same sex marriage is wrong. The Bible states this clearly as a sin (see the reference above). And as such, we simply cannot support such practices. We just can’t. It’s not that we hate people who do this. I certainly don’t. But I feel sorry for them. I know that abuse, peer pressure, and many other things can come into play when people decide they no longer want to be the gender they’re born to be, or that they don’t want to marry/date a person of the opposite sex. I know that much hurt a lot. But doing that won’t fix the hurt. only God’s love can fix it.
Of course, transgenderism and same sex marriage isn’t the only sin that exists in the world. There are many others, and God equally hates all sin. No matter if it’s transgenderism, murder, or lies. All sin is the same in His eyes. And because we all sin, we’re all in danger of falling into hell when we die. Some people might not think hell is so bad. But it’s a place far worse than anyone can humanly imagine. Think of the most painful way possible to die. Then stretch that pain out to where it lasts for infinity. It’s even worse than that. And because our first ancestors disobeyed God and took the fruit of knowledge of good and evil at the temptation of the devil, we’re all doomed to suffer that.
But there’s a hope for us. God sent Jesus to earth, as both God and man, to die in the most gruesome way possible. and be resurrected on the third day. He died in our place. For each and every one of us. That’s how much He loves us. And in doing this, He provided a way for us to join Him in heaven–the exact opposite of hell. He covers your sin in His own blood. And that blood washes you white as snow, so you can be accepted through the gates of heaven. That is the one and only way we will be saved. No other religion will save you. No other religion is the same. In order to take advantage of that blessing, we have to confess our sins to Him, ask for forgiveness, and ask for help in loving Him and doing His will.

Of course that isn’t easy. Many Christians make it think that’s easy, but it really isn’t. Jesus Himself expressed that the gate is narrow. (Matthiew 7:13-14) You’ll have to risk many things. Your friends and family may hate you for your faith. Satan and his demons will try every way possible to beat you down and break you. Holding onto God during troubled times seems impossible. And sometimes you might let go and slid backwards. But God won’t let go. No matter how many times you sin again, God will welcome you back if you repent. Even if it happens 1,000 times, He’ll still take you back that 1,000th time. Sounds like an impossible love, but God can do the impossible. You may even have to die for your faith. It’s hard to believe that won’t happen here, but all around the world, Christians really are dying for their faith. America is one of the few exceptions to that so far, but we will even be persecuted even to death here too. It might not be immediately, but it’s coming someday. But even with all these hardships, the reward is more than worth it. With God’s love, you don’t have to fear dying.

That’s not to say Christians can’t be friends with lgbt people or other sinners. Far from it! We’re supposed to show kindness and love to these people, just like God shows love to us. It’s not the people we don’t like. It’s the sin. And we’re not trying to be pushy or disruptive when we tell others about our faith. We’re spreading the wonderful Gift Jesus has provided for us, and we want to save as many people from the depths of hell as we can. And the church that says lgbt things are ok is making this hard. They’re not being biblical when they say this. And more people need to call them out for it. Same for those who truly do hate on/judge those who aren’t Christians. There are few who are truly believers. It’s a sad fact, but it’s true. But by making this journal, I hope to make some people think, and move toward joining God’s family. God bless you all! 

Racism tends to attract attention when it’s flagrant and filled with invective. But like all bigotry, the most potent component of racism is frame-flipping – positioning the bigot as the actual victim. So the gay do not simply want to marry; they want to convert our children into sin. The Jews do not merely want to be left in peace; they actually are plotting world take-over. And the blacks are not actually victims of American power, but beneficiaries of the war against hard-working whites. This is a respectable, more sensible bigotry, one that does not seek to name-call, preferring instead change the subject and straw man.

Please… just watch this

I’m pretty sure my entire maternal extended family thinks I’m a lesbian which is…. a thing…. but as long as no one actually thinks I’m a heterosexual I’m good I guess

Am I the only one mad at the Riverdale finale love scenes?

Before y'all go there, I’m not trying to steal Varchie or Bughead thunder. Even though they are not my ships, I know how to have sportsmanship with other ships and their shippers.

My problem is with the writers.
I legitimately feel betrayed and heartbroken at the “parallel” love scenes. Love making is a powerful notion to me, so I personally cannot brush character feelings off once sex happens. To me, Beronica can’t happen now for a LONG while (if it ever does) because both individuals of the ship have now been given strong feelings for other people. In terms of storytelling, once that line is crossed because “I love you"s are exchanged, or a phrase to be interpreted as such (ex: soulmates), it’s meant to have this relationship always be on the radar, even if they break up. It’s not something writers want you to easily forget.

The fool in me wants to hope that the writers will actually bother to make Beronica happen in S2 (due to it’s “surprising” popularity), but the realist in me is saying it won’t ever happen.

It’ll be teased again to grab us all for the first few episodes, those critical to get the renewed green light, and then it’ll go back to their straight ships.

Like… I don’t get it. I don’t get why queerbaiting is a thing. If you know it’s going to bring ratings, why not keep an LGBT romance for the whole season so you constantly have those raitings?!

It’s obviously crucial to hook people in at the start… so why not keep them hooked?!

If the reason being why you queerbait is to “keep the gays happy with ‘groundbreaking’ subtext” and so that “'the straight’ viewers don’t get mad and leave”, I have something to tell you. Those aren’t ‘straight viewers’, those are bigots. Because there are plenty of straight people out there who do just fine with LGBT representation, and understand why it’s important. If someone loses their shit at seeing gay characters in a main, and not supportive role, they’re a bigot. If someone loses their shit because now they have to share entertainment with gays, they’re bigots.

And if you care more about keeping them happy, it means you care more about bigot money than you do about equality.

I get that typical straight relationships “sell”, but those research figures should be changing. The youthful generation that teen shows are made for include an incredibly diverse population, so why are we being given what a previous generation looked forward to?

Well, thanks CW and Riverdale writers, you just fueled my fire to show you how it’s done.

Back to furiously typing my original LGBT novels lol

/rant

We’ve seen it a million times: a guy pretends to be gay, pretends to hide it till he’s 18, then he pretends to come out to his family who pretends not to understand and pretends to shun him. He moves to the city, a few years later, he meets another guy pretending to be gay, they pretend to fall in love, and he pretends to propose, and they get fake engaged. They pretend to set a date, the man reaches out to his family, they pretended to grow a lot because they’ve been watching a lot of ‘Modern Family,’ they don’t pretend to pretend to understand his life but they can see how happy he pretends to be, and they give their pretend blessing. The pretend couple enters a flower shop, one pretends to want orchids, the other pretends to want hydrangea, but once they’re in the store, they both pretend to want the vibrance of Peruvian lilies. They approach the owner who says, ‘I can’t sell to you, I’m a Christian,’ then BOOM, they hit him with a lawsuit, collect millions, and run off to Vegas to have hetero sex with lady hookers just as God intended. Gotcha!
