Okay, so there’s a subplot during the recent episode of Milo Murphy’s Law where he says that his doctor is golfing and he doesn’t know where his doctor is. And we cut to his Doctor golfing and getting asked if he’s a doctor and him saying no.

But at the end it just becomes amazingly sweet.

Milo’s doctor was on a date.

This is how to do it right. They don’t spell it out for you but it’s there and it’s natural. It’s two men on a date. Two men in an interracial relationship. Enjoying their day. There’s no confession of I’m gay. He just wants to say he’s a doctor. He wanted to be loved for who he is. And his boyfriend said it worked.

How sweet is that?

So, I thought Bob was totally right about this at first. I was curious, so I did a little researching and found that we were both wrong.
Situational homosexuality was something that happened on pirate ships, men being surrounded by men and not being able to satisfy sexual needs as often as they would like. Homosexuality wasn’t accepted in many pirate communities, but there was a common practice among some pirates, especially in the Caribbean.
Matelotage was the term given to a civil union between two men on pirate ships. The men often married for financial purposes as people in a matelotage shared personal items, loot, and were entitled to each other’s inheritance. But many of these relationships were also romantic as the matelots often had sex.
This happened all the way back in the 1600’s and the union ceremonies were identical to modern marriages. The two men would exchange gold rings and pledge their eternal commitment to each other. Many historians believe that there may have been entire towns where homosexual relationships and marriages between men were completely accepted.
In 1645, the French governer of Tortuga was so concerned about the homosexual relationships among the pirates that he had thousands of prostitutes shipped to the islands. The best thing about this is that the gay couples actually just ended up having threesomes and orgies with the women.
I felt like Tumblr needed to know this.

A series of tweets from bogiperson on Twitter which reads:

“can someone explain why all of a sudden everyone is leaving out the I from LBGTQIA -> LBGTQA? most intersex people are in favor of including

(if you need a citation for that, there is some data about acronym preferences for US intersex adults in Contesting Intersex)

and the whole “let’s exclude the I from the acronym” was afaik started by non-intersex parents of intersex children and is purely anti-queer

and if you are in the SFF community specifically - i do not know a SINGLE intersex person in SFF who wants to be excluded from the acronym.”

look at this trans ghost and their adorable family (*^▽^)/

thanks to @chingonaporvida for helping me with this! :) 


I hate when adults say that how we feel is “a phase” and we will grow up a be straight and have kids just like them.
I’m 13 so kids my age get this a lot from teachers/parents etc.
I go to a catholic school and we have a program called theology of the body. In this we discuss sex and the churches thoughts on it. So I was ready for this to be completely sexist (it was). We also talked about marriage. I have a bi friend and a pan friend so we were ready for her to say what we feel isn’t valid. She explained to us that the only reason “traditional marriage is straight and is for the procreation of children” This pissed me off. Marriage is when people love each other and decide to give themselves fully and love only them. Women are not only here to have kids. I know I’m asexual, don’t want biological kids. I want to adopt. I asked the teacher if this is ok. She said “I don’t think so. Procreating and having children is the only way to complete marriage it’s just a phase honey you’ll want kids”. I was like???!!!!

So... I finally came out to my Dad...

Today, after many months of playing the avoiding game and just hiding it, I finally came out as trans to my father.

Now, if you don’t know about me and my father’s relationship, let me paint a picture; I’m not the favorite kid (my sister is), and due to this, he’s always been easier on her than me. Granted, I bump heads with him a lot because I’m the only one calls him out on his shit. Let’s just say that he gets frustrated and angry with me all the time because I don’t just do things his way or how he sees things needing to be done. I think he’s a controlling prick with a superiority complex.

Now, I’ve told pretty much everyone about me except for him. He’s been my white whale, and now that it’s harder to hide (i.e.-facial hair, voice, ect.) I knew it had to be done. It went as expected, well, as I expected it to. He does still love me, and, I quote “will always be my father” and wants me to be happy. But! And it’s a big but, he just can’t (and won’t) see me as anything more than just his daughter, and a girl.

Now there are a lot more little things I could go on about the conversation, but I won’t. I just hope that one day he gets over his fear of being wrong and fear of change to attempt opening himself to me being his son. He’s very set in his ways, but I’m gonna remain optimistic. Given time, I hope he’s one of the parents that does come around. We shall see…
