glbt lgbt

Since us bisexuals, polysexuals, pansexuals, asexuals and aromantics don’t exist, laws do not apply.
Rob a fucking bank, if you don’t exist they can’t arrest you.

Dear Lesbians

It is not lesbophobic to point out your biphobic attitudes.

It is not lesbophobic to criticise the erasure of Bi/pan/ace women in lgbtqia history.

It is not lesbophobic to demand our place in lgbtqia discourse and culture.

It is not lesbophobic for Bi/pan/ace women to consider themselves wlw.

It is not lesbophobic for Bi/pan/ace women to want to reclaim slurs such as d*ke or consider themselves butch/femme.

Lesbophobia is a huge problem. And Bi/pan/ace women often experience it along with biphobia and Bi erasure.

Quit making us the enemy when we are your sisters.

Secret Deodorant Debuts Groundbreaking Transgender Ad

A new deodorant commercial released this week perfectly captures the anxiety that some transgender people face while having to navigate public restrooms.

The latest commercial in the Secret #Stress Test ad campaign features a young transgender person working up the courage to leave the bathroom stall and face other women in a public restroom. The tagline reads, “Dana finds courage to show there’s no wrong way to be a woman.”

I’m Jewish and I support all people, regardless of their sexuality, romantic identity or gender identity.

“וַיִּבְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים ׀ אֶת־הָֽאָדָם֙ בְּצַלְמ֔וֹ בְּצֶ֥לֶם אֱלֹהִ֖ים בָּרָ֣א אֹת֑וֹ זָכָ֥ר וּנְקֵבָ֖ה בָּרָ֥א אֹתָֽם׃”

“And God created humankind in God’s own Image, God created them: male and female, God created them.”  (Gen. 1:27)

In and out of Synagogue, we pray to the One who created us in Their Image. We feel obligated to show everyone the same basic respect as people are בצלמו, in God’s Image.  As Jews and human beings we are curious by nature and therefore we honor the wonderful research that medical professionals have made in the fields of gender, romantic and sexuality identities as well as in mental health. 

Although the text specifically mentions זכר ונכבה, male and female, we understand that the ancient biblical writers who interpreted God’s creations did not have an understanding of gender other than man and woman.  But the texts mention of multiple genders (rather than simply אדם, man) can illicit contemporary understandings of the text. One can interpret it to mean that God created all people, thus all of our genders.

Those who experience a gender that is not cisgender, or a sexual/romantic identity that is not straight, are holy.  Their holiness teaches the rest of society to become more tolerant.  

Conversion therapy is child abuse. There is no grey area. There is no wiggle room. The fuckers that practice it are abusers. The fuckers who send their children off to be “converted” are abusers. Assholes who say “I wouldn’t do it, but that’s their rights as parents.” are abuse apologists.
