I keep seeing people make statements like “the LGBT community came together to fight homophobia and transphobia only!” So I made these, use them freely. If you want to make more (e.g. for aces/aros, or whatever) inbox me and I’ll send you the original to edit. 

If these look weird for you… they look weird for me too because Tumblr likes to force them to fit the screen. What you do is stick one in your post; click the little gear at the top right and change it from “rich text” to “HTML”; look for the bit that says “tmblr-full” and change it to just “tmblr”, and it should fix it. (I couldn’t do that because for some reason, it wouldn’t upload them if I put them inside a text post. SIGH) 

Descriptions/uses for these cards:

If what you are saying about community politics excludes intersex people:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “Your argument leaves out intersex people. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not include intersex people by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you think intersex people are (by definition) some kind of trans people, OR if you think that intersex people only “count” if they were assigned the wrong gender at birth:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You are confusing intersex with trans. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn what intersex means by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you think intersex people are only part of the community if they “are trans or experience same-gender attraction”:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You are misinformed about intersex people. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn what intersex means by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you don’t believe in biphobia:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You don’t believe biphobia exists. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn what biphobia means by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you think bisexuals are only affected by homophobia, OR if you think bisexuals are “only oppressed if people think we’re gay”:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You are confusing bi with gay/lesbian. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn about bi people by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you think trans people are only oppressed because people think we’re gay:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You are confusing trans with gay/lesbian. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn about trans people by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

If you think nonbinary people are not really trans, or that it’s super hetero to be into nonbinary people or something:

[Worn vintage “go directly to jail” Monopoly card, edited to say “You are misinformed about what trans means. Go directly to Google, do not pass go, do not collect $200.” Fine print at bottom warns, “If you do not learn about trans people by your third turn, you must pay the $50 fine.”]

"Don't worry, Anders. I'll be back before you know it." Garrett had said these words to him the morning that he left, and though Anders desperately wanted to believe it, something still /gnawed/ at his stomach as he watched his lover ride off into the sunrise. Varric's letter was vague as to how long Hawke would be needed for. Anders keeps himself busy in the meantime, healing the sick and injured. But he takes an hour everyday to stare at the horizon and wonder. And then the letter comes.

Okay since it's heart-shattering time, I've always wanted to share this one. So the Arishok fight obviously wasn't an easy one, and Hawke can be terribly injured, even if they won. Meredith, however, enters right after the fight is over and even if Hawke is nearly dying Anders probably can't heal them in front Meredith. Or he might try, but Hawke asks him not to. So he either watched some circle mages heal them or Hawke is carried home and Anders curses himself for every precious lost minute.

(OH MY GOD)

Just imagine him waiting for the healers to arrive and only barely managing to hold himself back. His teeth are gritted, fists are clenched, and his nails are digging into his palms. Their other companions are giving him warning looks, making clear what he already knows.

He’s watching the blood pour of of them, mentally measuring how much they’ve lost already. He already knows which injuries need tending first, exactly how to do it, and he watches the healers do it wrong, costing Hawke a few more precious minutes.

He could’ve been done by now, he knows that. Yet he watches these Circle mages with absolutely no real experience with actually fatal injuries go through the process with agonizing slowness. Hawke was in danger before they got here, there’s no time for this.

It takes everything in him not to push them all out of the way and take over himself, but he knows better. It’s what Hawke wants, so he must stay still, wait it out, and hope Meredith doesn’t wind up killing the one she just named as Champion by leaving this to the inexperienced.

When it’s finally over, he nearly collapses with relief. Even if he would’ve been faster, Hawke is going to live. That’s all that matters to him. They’ve closed the wounds, and he’s not going to lose the one he loves. For the moment, it is okay.

But he swears he won’t let it happen again, not ever.
