queer block

i like girls
who resemble the sun;
burning, brilliant,
blinding, if you look for too long.
the kind of light that lingers on your eyelids.

i like girls
who remind me of moonlight;
who have a way of lighting the dark spaces
in my mind on cold nights,
when dawn seems like a distant dream.

i like girls
who personify the ocean;
wild laughter and wide eyes, salt slick skin,
arms raised as they sway as one with the waves,
tide drunk and dizzy with the scent of the sea.

i like girls
who embody the earth;
who ground with a touch. who fight off lightning
and kiss like how rain tastes on your tongue
when you open your mouth to the sky.

Hey y’all, so I’ve had sensitive mode on for a few days. It’s not just lgbt content that gets blocked. Most of what I’ve seen blocked is:

  • Pagan content, ref posts and altar pics
  • Black/PoC content, both humor and serious posts
  • Moodboards of all kinds
  • The moon. A lot


However if ur over 18, please have it turned on!! If u click on a post (the view post button)

Then go to the bottom 

You can help improve the algorithm!!

Generally I say yes to nudity of any kind, violence, gore, slurs (like f slur or t slur, blocking queer will only make things worse). Make sure to think about why you vote - is this the kind of content you wouldnt want your boss or a 12 yr old seeing?

Good luck!

i thought about death last on a tuesday. i thought about how decay is supposed to smell sweet and i wondered what that meant for its taste. i have no intention to find out, though i know curiosity, like cat to mouse, has a way of digging her claws in.

i thought about life last night. not just the sunrise, or the stars. not just the way the world goes dizzy at the edges when you hold your breath, but the way that the air feels in the aftermath of a storm. particles lightning-charged with the same kind of life that lingers in the synapses of a brain at the edge of discovery.

this morning i thought about you. you. you are hard to fold into words. i find that your curves do not like the way sentences feel when i try to hold them up against you, to see if i caught your image within them. the comparison is as weak as i was when i saw you last tuesday, or when you smiled at me last night.

tonight? who knows. the thing is, i think these days i laugh more than i cry, but i still think about death. i haven’t looked at the stars in a while but i still see them, and i will always watch for storms. you do not complete me as i was a person before you, but i like that we could live alone. it means we choose not to.

My Experience With Tumblr ‘Safe Mode’ So Far:

Things that have been blocked on my dash:

  • Severa gif-sets of PG movies and TV shows like ‘Tangled: Before Ever-After’, ‘Atlantis: The Lost Empire’ and ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’
  • One (1) Porn 
  • No queer/lgbtqa+ posts…yet(but hey this post might get blocked since I just wrote that so let’s see…)
  • 90′s anime aesthetic posts
  • A drawing reference post with nothing even close to nudity
  • Random shitposts, most with no cursing or references to sex
  • Random humor posts, most with no cursing or references to sex
  • PG Pokemon Fan Art
  • PG Steven Universe Fan Art
  • A post with two people cosplaying in kigurumis facetiming each other
  • Lots of PG Fan Art in general
  • Several Vine-Comps
  • A post about Fatphobia
  • A post about Color Theory

Things that have NOT been blocked:

  • A decent amount of porn
  • Posts with like…lots of cursing and references to sex
  • So far no queer/lgbtqa+ content but that might change (let me know if this post is blocked please)

Also, fun note: I turned Safe Mode OFF last night because it was bothering me since it was clearly not working. It continued to flag posts that were PG, not let me look at some posts at all and refuse to let me put feedback on blocked posts saying that have been wrongly flagged (I’m 22 and I have my correct age put in). 

AND YET!! This morning it was ON again. So turning it off doesn't even work.

I’m def pissed. 

@staff get your shit together and fix this.

I laugh everytime I see an exclusionist use “lgbtpn"as the acronym.(Queer who? Intersex what?) It’s so painfully transparent.

Especially when ya’ll were just tripping over yourselves with that "lgbt is the full acronym!"bullshit only two months ago.

Don’t pretend to care about my non-binary ass when ya’ll were so dead set to shove us all under the T, despite us speaking out about it.

Don’t pretend to care about my panromantic ass now when ya’ll kept screaming over us, demanding we go under the B.

Ya’ll been speaking over us for damn near two years. Like am I supposed to be grateful that you graciously decided to tack our identities on the end to shut us up? Lmao fuck outta here

“What?”
“What?”

Rewriting Wicked: Wickedly Queer (9/?)

swear to god if some 17yr old whose blog is just full of porn makes a post making up some new rules for which members of the lgbtqia community are ALLOWED to self-identify as queer everyone fuckin reblogs it and is like “omg my bad ur so right im sorry for calling myself q*eer when im only a lesbian!” because nobody on this goddamn website can form a complete opinion for themselves

“Tell me one more time how I’m not allowed to use queer as an umbrella term”-moodboard.

[all pictures taken at the Lesbisch-Schwules Stadtfest Berlin 2017]

Just a short update from Hamburg: I went to the demonstration “solidarity without borders” today. It was colourful and totally peaceful. I marched with the queer block at the end, holding banners saying “Love Love” or “Love wins”. I thought, after all the violence over the last days, that was a good message to spread. And they had the best music. So we danced in the streets, waving rainbow flags against homophobic warmongers like Trump, Putin and Erdogan. Police was present but exercised restrain, for example our part of the march wasn’t flanked by police at all.

When I reached the final rally, a speaker was saying: “After all the shit that went down over the last days, it’s so great to see all those people coming together in peace, showing solidarity!” I couldnt agree more. 

And despite one small incident, it all stayed calm and peaceful.

Not every protester ist a crazy rioter! The overwhelming majority wanted to peacefully voice their discontent with the state of the world, and succeeded at least today!

Not to sound too political or anything but… could we stop referring to some people’s identity as a something that needs to be censored? Or at the very least NOT shame people who use queer as their identity? Just a suggestion.

Don’t Harass, Just Block
