I hate it when people say “Heteromantic asexual people don’t belong in the LBGT+ community because they can be homophobic.”
Um like anyone in the community can be ___phobic? Lesbian people can be transphobic, gay people can be biphobic, like anyone in our community can be rude and horrible to any group that is not directly them like this is the shittiest reason ever to exclude anyone. If you don’t like the idea that a heteromantic asexual might face serious issues that only people in the LBGT+ community can sympathize with just because they are heteromantic then that is a reflection on you, not them.
If you think teenagers drawing/writing/reading Johnlock porn is ‘queer fetishization’’ while knowing LOTS of them are queer themselves and that John and Sherlock are, 99% of the time, viewed as humans and given a background story, and that you refuse to acknowledge that the real queer fetishization resides in porn where lesbians are CONSTANTLY fetishized and dehumanized for the enjoyment of straight men, then you are fucking trash tbh.
today is transgender awareness day. this is a day to memorialize those whose lives we have unfortunately lost due to anti-transgender fear, bigotry and hatred. if you would like to sign the pledge and know more about your rights and how you can take action then go here. if you would like to learn more about the people we lost this year go here
