“Coming out may not always be easy. One father, who overheard his son on the phone discussing his intentions to reveal his sexuality, eased his child’s worries by writing him the best note ever.

FCKH8.com, an equal rights organization, first posted the touching letter to Facebook on Friday morning. In the note, the father explains he overheard his son, Nate, talking on the phone about coming out. But the father tells him there is no need – he already knew, and he never cared.

"I’ve known you were gay since you were six,” the father writes. “I’ve loved you since you were born.”

He also added a sweet postscript, ‘Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.’“

Once again…the Girl Scouts are doing it right. 
I was a Boy Scout. I can no longer really support them as an organization because of their backwards views on so many subjects. . 
The girl Scouts? Heck yeah. 

Hey, I’m Fiona, and I’d really like to meet some other asexuals. It would be really neat to talk to some of you and make some friends or meet a potential girlfriend or something. I really look forward to getting to know some of you. :-)

Help Save My Friend

Hey guys, I’ve never posted anything like this before, but I’m worried that I’m losing one of my best friends and I’m not going to let that happen without a fight. My friend Jax is one of the most fun-loving people I know, but lately he’s become a shadow of his usual self. He finally got a surgical consultation for his top surgery a few weeks ago and found that he can’t afford it. It’s sent him into a tailspin and he’s retreated into himself. I want to help him raise the money he needs for the surgery, hopefully so he can get it this summer. He’s become so despondent he doesn’t think it will ever happen for him, and he doesn’t believe that there are people out there who want to help him. I want to be able to surprise him with at least some of the money he needs, at least enough to give him some hope and motivation to keep on raising the rest. Please, even if you can only spare a dollar or two, consider donating and help him see that it isn’t all bad. If not, at least reblog this or spread the word however you can. Or if you have any good ideas for fundraising events I can do around town?? Seriously I’m desperate give me ideas I’ll do anything I’ll kill a guy I don’t care.

An Open Letter to Cis-Hets

Dear cis-hets, 

I am not obligated in any way to answer your questions, especially grossly invasive ones. I am not your personal gender and sexuality field guide. Your curiosity is not my problem; I’m not obligated to sate it. I’m not required to be polite when you’re rude. I know you are confused. Google exists for a reason.

The New York Times is publishing stories about people’s experiences as trans, if anyone wants to submit that would be so cool! We need representation from actual trans people in the papers, I love this.

Today is the 85th birthday of the activist and humanitarian who said “It takes no compromise to give people their rights…it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.”  Harvey Milk.  His contribution to the American equality dialogue is still felt today.  The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.  Read more about him here:  http://wp.me/p1RM79-3AQ  (via Happy 85th Birthday Harvey Milk)
