I can’t express how pointless I find these terrible discourse attempts to nail out who is “more oppressed” in the LGBTQAI+ community.
The whole competitive angle is so… Without actual purpose. Oppression and privilege are useful discourse tools, they aren’t weapons.
I’m not interested if someone is more or less oppressed than me, quantifying it isn’t helpful. Understanding the axis of oppression that other people face is useful, creating a hierarchy is not.
If someone is facing oppression from a cisheteronormative society then I’m not concerned about who gets more or less privilege.
It’s talk like this that made it really hard for me to understand privilege in the first place.
When I first came across it it was from a literal quiz that awarded you privilege points for xyz details. It’s a toxic way of simplifying ourselves and ignoring the complexity of people and their situations.
I totally agree with everything you've said on religion and can see how many can have a place in leftism but I find it very hard to be comfortable around Christianity with what it's done to me as an LGBT person
And you have every right to be wary of the reactionary elements of Christianity. To be sure, a great number of Christians are no friend to LGBT folks, but I’m hopeful that more churches like my sister’s partner’s church will spring up in the coming decades – that is, inclusive and justice-focused.
Regarding your ideal type message, when an idol gets deep in their thought of their ideal type, I feel insecure. They may say "I want the cute type" or the "sexy type" and I always think a normal girl like me could have a chance, but I'' just crazy and i know some hot fitness model or model in general will be with them, cause in the end it's always the models, and it makes me insecure and sad cause I'I not perfect like them, idk I'm sorry
See it this way, it’s probably them because you’re not around them. I like to say that we find love in our surroundings you know? How can I find love or feel attracted to something/someone on the other side if I don’t look for it? In our case, we become attracted to them because we look for them. They can’t do the same because that’s who they are. (Unless that’s something they actually want, to look for someone online. Or in another country or city).
Long story short, they fall for who is around them the most. And fortunately or unfortunately, models and other idols are the ones. But if someone else, per example, you or me, gets to be around them, nothing says we don’t have a change, we would be equal when it comes to having a chance. :)
There are sooo many highlights from tonight's ep I haven't got enough words to describe how beautiful it was,I'm a wreck after part one I'll be a sopping mess after Maxine's ep. Rob was a total groomzilla,cake toppers were fab,loved Rob and Liv,Aaron slapping away Rob's hand was such a Aaron thing,dirty little grease monkey to name but a few highlights I was literally sat like Marlon during the full episode. Danny and Ryan were superb their chemistry was off the charts. I'm off to watch it again
I never get emotional at Emmerdale unless it’s something really sad and heartbreaking so I can’t believe how emotional tonight has made me. I can’t find one fault with it. And it’s barely begun. I have no idea how I’m going to handle tomorrow. Danny and Ryan are incredible and they just better and better
Omg!!!! How??? Where??? When?? Can I find out my soul age from my natal chart? thank you <3333 you just made my day 😃😃
Man I’m probably gonna ruin your day when I say you can’t. You really can’t find your soul age and be 100% accurate and sure of it. You can’t just look at your chart and go, “Oh wow! I have a lot of Saturn aspects! LOTS of karma, probably means I’m an old soul!!”
Like no… What if you fucked up big time in a past life because you were a young soul? Like you can probably get a good idea of what you need to learn, but the time when you exactly caused the karma you needed to learn is unknown.
People say that the 12th House represents your most recent past life, but honestly, I think it can represent the themes of your multiple past lives if you have any. Karmic themes aren’t always linear where you learn from your past lifetimes in a sequential order. Say, if you had five lifetimes, you could choose your new lifetime to renew karma from the 3rd lifetime instead of the 4th lifetime since your most recent lifetime was too traumatic or whatever.
This isn't LGBT related but I really need help! When I was 8 my cousin tried to rape me, I forgot for a few years but now I'm starting to remember it and at school I almost have panic attacks or break down crying because of it. I really want to tell my friends but I have no idea how. Please help me, I'm so scared, I'm going to his school next year and I'm terrified. How can I tell me friends?
I don’t think you need to tell your friends, something like this should remain private until you work on it. Otherwise you have a lot of different opinions while you are trying to work on it. I think you need to find a therapist, it can work wonders. I’ve been in therapy for a year and it is so great, it’s kept me alive. Work through this, I know how terrifying and intense it can feel. Please find a professional. After you have worked on it and you are in a better place, that’s when you tell your friends and let them give you the support you will need.
the monday morning clip in episode 4 s3 was so wild like isak and even were trying to have a casual conversation “are you going to party?” “lol no… I MEAN maybe are you going to party?” “yeah i thought yeah wanna pre drink together?” “sure sure sure coolcoolcoolcool” as if they didn’t almost kiss three days earlier
i mean look at them. these nerds are terrible at playing cool
A pink faced girl with a white headscarf stumbled out of the line, put on the hat, which fell right down over her eyes, and sat down. ‘HUFFLEPUFF!’ shouted the hat. The table on the right cheered and clapped as Hannah went to sit down at the Hufflepuff table; the ghost of the Fat Friar waving merrily at her.
