pick sides

since I haven’t seen a lot of positivity for this:
✨shoutout to boys who have both traditionally masculine and traditionally feminine qualities/interests !!
✨boys who like suits as well as dresses
✨boys who like painting their nails while watching sports
✨boys who like both wearing makeup and not wearing it
✨boys who like both shaving and not shaving
✨boys who like both pink and blue
✨boys who present both masculine and feminine
✨boys who have both soft and angular physical features
✨non binary boys who use both he/him and she/her pronouns
✨boys who aren’t seen as “groundbreaking” because they don’t like exclusively traditionally feminine things
✨boys who aren’t seen as “man enough” because they don’t like exclusively traditionally masculine things
✨you don’t ever have to “pick a side” and you are no less important because you have qualities/interests that are both traditionally masculine and traditionally feminine !! there is no wrong way to be a boy and you’re doing a great job being you !! you look very handsome and beautiful today ✨

i just saw a post saying like “bi people experiencing homophobia is biphobic because some of them are in different gender relationships” and its like ok yea but… they still experience homophobia? for being attracted to the same gender in general? biphobia is very real and happens within the lgbt community and outside of it with shit like “pick a side” or being seen as “somewhat straight” but theyre not straight no matter what relationship they are in and still experience homophobia based on even being interested in the same gender

the difference between biphobia and homophobia is whats being said. if it has to do SOLELY with being attracted to the same gender, thats homophobia, which bi/pan people can experience. there are other things however that do constitute being attracted to multiple genders as well as your own, and thats bi/panphobia (ex. the whole “pick a side” rhetoric, which comes from both the lgbt community and outside of it)

much love to lesbians who once identified as bisexual, from a bisexual woman (yours truly!). i’m really proud and happy that you found a label to truly encompass who you are, and i’m thankful for your presence in the community. you are not contributing to the stereotype that bi people “pick a side” and i hope that all wlw help you come to terms with who you are. your identity is not temporary or fake, and you’re a real lesbian no matter what anyone else says. 

It’s been a year since Kimye pulled the whole snapchat thing and “exposed” Taylor Swift so lets review what has happened since

The Kardashians have

  • done blackface
  • photoshopped their faces on legendary musicians merchandise and tried to sell it as their own
  • publicly supported Donald Trump
  • did that Pepsi commercial

and Taylor has 

  • gotten into a relationship
  • …..probably baked some cookies

Some people used to identify as bi, and now they identify as gay. They’re not “fulfilling a stereotype” about how bi people always “pick a side.” Their own journey of self-discovery and sexuality is valid.

Some people used to identify as gay, and now they identify as bi. They’re not “fulfilling a stereotype” about how “all lesbians still actually want to fuck men.” Their own journey of self-discovery and sexuality is valid.

Some people used to identify as ace, and now they don’t. They’re not “fulfilling a stereotype” about how ace people “just don’t know what they’re missing”. Their own journey of self-discovery and sexuality is valid.

Some people used to identify as aro, and now they don’t. They’re not “fulfilling a stereotype” about how “everyone finds True Love in the end because it’s the Most Important Human Thing”. Their own journey of self-discovery and sexuality is valid.

Your understanding of these terms and yourself will evolve.

It’s okay if a label you used to identify with doesn’t fit anymore.

Sexuality is fluid. You’re not faking. Your identity is valid.

Ways to Attract a Bisexual

- Start making bi puns
- Open a bag of chips
- Slather yourself in honey (a great way to make friends)
- Include them in LGBT+ spaces, even if they’re in a hetero relationship
- Instead of asking “Are you gonna pick a side?”, maybe ask about their favourite movie
- Perform a ceremonial ritual under the light of the full moon
- Offer them ice cream

Tuesday Tips - “Pick A Side”

To create appeal and clarity in your figure drawing (or any character drawing), try to simplify an overall side of the body and to keep the details (limbs sticking out, face profile, body compression) to the other side. Your posing will becoming much more dynamic and interesting to look at, creating an organic asymmetry to the overall silhouette of the body.

I like to think maybe Robbie has some strength to his frame from messing around with so many metal parts and dragging around giant canons and everything else he does that in a moment of emergency he just picks up Sportakook (bridal or over his shoulder, either way) and runs for dear life instead of Sportanerd grabbing him and everyone is confused and Sportacute is flustered because no one has carried him since he was a young babe and Robbie is confused as of why Sportaflop is so red and– yea… but

We need more Stronger-than-we-thought-he-was Robbie Rotten

Prinxiety OTP prompt fill

Person A: Did it hurt?

Person B: *rolls eyes* Let me guess, when I fell from heaven ?

Person A: No

Person B: What?

Person A: *grins* Did it hurt when you fell for me?


Prinxiety…like literally who else could this be talking about?


Anxiety was sitting and the table, absentmindedly enjoying a hot cocoa and flipping through a comic when his boyfriend came up behind him, hugging is shoulders and pressing their cheeks together.


“What’s up babe?” He asked, reaching up and patting Roman on the head without taking his eyes off the page.


“I have a question for you.”


“Don’t you know not to say that to anxious people?” Anxiety said, already feeling nervous.


“It’s a very important question.” Already his mind was whirling with horrible possibilities.


“Shoot” he said hoping he sounded confident.


“Did it hurt?”  Anxiety rolled his eyes, instantly relaxing.


“Let me guess, when I fell from heaven?”  


Roman let out a chuckle, moving to sit in the seat next to him. “No”


“What?” he asked looking up at his boyfriend in surprise, Prince was absolutely grinning.


“Did it hurt when you fell for me?”


Anxiety couldn’t help but snort at that, “ Oh God.” He said laughing and leaning in to plant one on the smirking side.


“Yes. Yes it did.” He said adopting a serious tone. Prince slapped his shoulder lightly. But he was still grinning.


What a cheese ball, Anxiety thought turning back to his comic.
