School can be stressing, especially with tests. If you’re feeling stressed, take time to yourself. Get your assignments done and take the rest of the day to relax. Watch your favorite movie or show, read a book, listen to your favorite songs, take a walk, take a bath, do whatever you need to relax.


Take a deep breath, you can do this. Don’t overthink, let it happen. School is inevitable until you graduate, so let it happen and do your best.

sexualities as doors:

hetrosexual: door swings one way

homosexual: door swings the other way

bisexual: door swings both ways 

pansexual: revolving door 

demisexual: door is locked and only one person has the key 

asexual: door is actually a wall

This Creator Is Proving Why Non-Binary Representation Matters
Web series are leading the way in moving beyond the gender binary.
By Lauren Strapagiel

A new wave of creators aren’t waiting for mainstream entertainment to catch up to the realities of gender identity, they’re just making it happen. And Kaitlyn Alexander is at the forefront.

Alexander is the mastermind behind Couple-ish, a web series they both created and star in. It centres on Dee, a non-binary, bisexual artist who enters into a sham marriage to keep their new roommate in the country. It’s instantly endearing, with LGBT inside jokes and characters that are too awkward not to love.

“I just saw this gap in media. I was not seeing people like me represented so it’s like, why don’t I just start doing it. Somebody has to start it,” Alexander told BuzzFeed Canada. “I just wanted to create a series where somebody who’s non-binary can be a romantic lead or at the forefront, and not a joke.” Often, says Alexander, characters without a fixed gender are non-human entities like aliens, and often a punchline. 

“Representation is important because it gives people opportunities to see themselves in media, which is validating. It can make you feel like you’re not alone, and that’s super important,” they said. They’ve even received messages from non-binary people saying Alexander’s work helped them explain their identities to their parents.

Being Gay Is More

Being gay is more than rainbows, and kisses, and smiles. Being gay is more than sunsets, and cuddles, and sleepovers. Being gay is more than “be yourself”, and I was “born this way”. Being gay is throwing a brick at the stonewall riots, and lynchings for holding your girlfriends hand. Being gay is yelling at police, sitting still as a preacher spits in your face while he damns you to hell. Being gay is not some aesthetic that straight people can use to consider themselves “progressive” because we both know you’re only on our side so you can watch. If I have to see one more goddamned video of a straight white girl making a rainbow makeup tutorial for pride I’m going to scream. Being a lesbian is not two girls have a secret sleepover, cuddling together sneaking kisses; it’s changing alone in the locker rooms because the other girls are lining up to change in the bathroom stalls so you won’t see them. Being gay is not going to the store and biting organic fruit with your hubby; it’s getting yelled at during back to school shopping because your daughter “shouldn’t have to grow up having two fags as parents. How will you appease her feminine side?” Being bisexual isn’t being straight passing, and having more options to date; it’s being excluded from both the straight and gay communities. Being trans is not some skinny white boy who passes; it’s a person of color being beat up in the woman’s restroom because “HE’S just a MAN trying to sneak a peak at the woman inside”, as if she herself is not a beautiful woman who just needs to piss. Being Queer isn’t dressing cute and wearing a rainbow flag; it’s living with AIDS, which means even though you now test negative because you’ve kept on your meds and are no long contagious, you can’t find a significant other due to fear and propaganda. Being intersex isn’t a “true born transgender” (how could you ever say that and no know you’re being offensive?!); it’s having doctors remove parts of your genitalia for no logical reason at all. Being asexual/greysexual is not being a tease and staying innocent forever; it’s being excluded from the Queer community for some stupid sense of entitlement about what is and isn’t LGBT. Being aromantic is not a fun out-spirited girl who knows how to have a good time; it’s being called a skank on a daily basis because you don’t feel romantic attachments.

I am not an aesthetic for you to use to feel included in the LGBT community. Just because I believe in black lives matter does not mean in any way that I am a person of color. The A stands for asexual and aromantic, not ally. You’re not a part of our community. You support us yes, but you aren’t us. That sounds harsh, I know. I do not intend to hurt your feelings but my struggles are real. So, please stop dismissing them. Actually support us, instead of kinda helping to make yourself feel better. So, support us please, but please don’t sexualize us, or use us for your aesthetic. I am a person. I live, and breathe, and feel. My experiences are real. Hear them. Pay attention. And then do something about it.

I am a white, bi/pansexual, gender nonconforming individual. If you have a problem with something I’ve said PLEASE correct me or tell me what I’ve said to offend you. I will be happy to admit if I’m in the wrong.

(I lumped pansexual in with bisexual because to quote my favorite human @jaxxgarcia “to suggest you need a whole new sexuality to be attracted to trans people is …what’s that words again idk OH gross”. [EDIT the quote meant “don’t feel the need to change your sexuality just because allies don’t understand the difference between bi and pan”. People who don’t think pansexuals exist are gross. Pan people exist, I inserted the quote at a weird spot I’m sorry.] I put agender, gender fluid, demi girl/boy etc under trans to conserve space. I put pan, bi, poly etc under bi to conserve space. I use the word Queer because it’s a word stolen from us, and I’d like to claim it back. Also because I don’t like saying I’m gay, because I’m not a homosexual man, if you get where I’m coming from.)

Reblog pls.

someday people won’t deadname you.

someday people will use the right pronouns.

someday people will accept and love you for the incredible person you are.

waiting sucks, i know, but someday it’s gonna happen, you just have to hold on and keep keeping on tbfh. as long as you know who you are then everyone’s words just fall flat. all that matters is that you’re safe, and that you’re being yourself.

Dear parents

I know not all parents are like this, but some are.


When your child is questioning their sexuality or gender, dont say “oh its just a phase” or “you’re too young”


If they believe they are not straight, so be it. All you have to do is support them. Children value their parents love and support, it helps.
