i shouldn't be allowed to use tumblr

How do you feel about him now?”
I paused at this unexpected question, and inhaled some vapour to give myself time to think of a suitable answer. I briefly considered lying, before realising that my alcohol-clouded brain had no choice but to be honest.
“I don’t really know. I loved him. And he didn’t love me. Or maybe he did to begin with, but he certainly didn’t when it ended. So I’ve trained myself not to love him. Life’s too short to waste time longing for someone who’s never going to want you.

Having trouble submitting images right now, but yet another Cracked article's prompting their comment section to bubble over with tumblr hate. My favourite comment: "Tumblr singlehandedly killed any belief I had in any named equal rights movement. If I'm going to support people, I'm supporting ALL people, and I'm not gonna slap a label on myself and side with someone. There shouldn't even be labels and sides in helping all humans live equally in the world."

Uuggggggghh.

Since people seem to understand classism better than other forms of oppression, I’ll use that as an example.

When poor people support each other, it can allow them to survive when they otherwise wouldn’t. It can lead to better working conditions, better pay, and can help poor people escape tough circumstances.

When rich people support each other, you wind up with collusion and fascism and all sorts of legitimately awful things.

Ideally, yes, everyone should help each other have the things they need and control over their lives. But rich people don’t need any more support, they already have what they need.

We don’t achieve justice or equality or whatever by pretending we already have those things. We achieve those goals by realizing who is being hurt by systems of injustice and inequality and working with them to address those things.

So I just stumbled across a tumblr that basically says that bisexual people in hetero relationships shouldn't be allowed in LGBTQIA spaces? I'm a bisexual currently in a hetero relationship... what do you think?! This has worried me, I feel safe in this community!!!

I think that ridiculous. People who identify asd bisexual have just as much right to be involved in LGBTQIA+ spaces as anyone else that fits into that never ending acronym. We need to be more open and welcoming than the people who have turned us away. Thanks for the question!
