queer shit

i just want queer people to fucking invade every fucking piece of media

i want conservative parents fucking squirming as their kids realise that queer people fucking exist

i want the radio to be full of songs which we can relate to and cishet people can’t

i want tonnes of young adult books for all the kids who are finding themselves, so that they can find people like them in their stories

i want queer princesses and queer super heroes, i want queer comedies and queer dramas

i want queer representation

and i don;t want white cis gay boys in all of them either that is not fucking representation

we deserve better

ok so i am neither bi nor monogamous but like…yall bi folks in exclusive het relationships. whats up. why is ur “identity” such a big deal. isnt all that’s saying like…”whenever i leave my partner now, i might not be having sex w ppl of their gender!” isnt that kind of…rude to ur monogamous partner. “just letting you know that in case i break up with you or cheat on you, my options are more open!” 

like why is this nebulous idea of u having an Immutable Innate Sexual Identity more important than the things you’re actually doing?? like i understand why a liberal would think that but like….one of the basic tenants of radicalism imo is that Things are more important than Ideas and Actions are more important than Intentions. that’s how privilege and oppression work…

no but heres the thing

everytime i talk to someone i’m constantly listening for phrases and behaviors that will tell me they’re queerphobic

i’m on my guard all the time, even with my family and friends, because it’s the only way i know to keep myself safe

so when queer people talk about how fucking ridiculous heterophobia is it’s because you’re literally comparing fearing for your safety 24/7 to getting your fee fees hurt on the internet

but people who get all ‘think of the children!’ when you mention putting queer characters in kids shows piss me off so much

because I am thinking of the children

the queer children who are living in a world that tells them they are wrong at every turn, that denies their existence and refuses to allow them a happy ending

I’m thinking of those children

hey trans and non binary ppl!

allow yourself the same affordances u would give a cis person, okay?

does a cis boy wearing eyeliner make him less of a boy? no. and it does not make you any less of your gender to do so.
does a cis girl playing rugby make her any less of a girl? no. and it does not make you any less of your gender to do so.
does anything a cis boy does make him less of a boy? no.
does anything a cis girl does make her less of a girl? no.
AND NOTHING YOU DO MAKES YOU ANY LESS YOUR GENDER EITHER.

i feel like we get told way too much that once we transition/come out, we need to fit into the gender stereotypes of what we identify as. blue for transboys, pink for transgirls, grey and ‘androgynous’ colours (honestly cis ppl are wild) for nb people.

your choices of clothing, makeup, hobbies and literally anything doesnt make you less who you are.

people ‘coming out’ as trivial shit like bronies and fanfiction writers are so fucking annoying

we literally risk murder, homelessness, abuse and loss of rights for coming out, it is so incredibly dangerous and people are so fucking brave for doing it

and then people treat it as something they can just co-opt and its just about spilling an embarrassing hobby and just fuck you fuck you so much

Underneath that saying is a pink baphomet. Their hair is about to the length of the nape of their neck and it is mint green, blue and blonde. They also have a braided grey and black rat tail hanging down their shoulder. End image description.]

this was taken by my lovely friend Sarah at her house when she had a party. because sometimes i go to those.

I’m just done with ~implied~ queerness, with ‘nods’ to queer fans, with speculation and almosts and queerbaiting in all its forms

I am done with subpar representation and breadcrumbs

I want canon queer characters and I want them now

“I lived in the bay for four years and felt all fucked up pretty much the whole time. I was like, I keep going to these house shows and performance nights and readings and there keep being trans people talking about being trans, people keep trying to be nice to me but I keep feeling all alienated and invisible, what is going on? Every collective house in the east bay had at least one trans guy and no trans women. It wasn’t until I moved away and started to parse out the way that, like, everything about being trans that I was seeing was about how masculinity is cool, and talking about how packing a cock in your UnderArmour boxer briefs was like brave and empowering. Or endless performances by cis femmes who viewed femme as a kind of trans identity, who wanted to talk about how hot they were for masculinity in their partners. This wasn’t being cool about trans stuff, this was being cool about trans stuff in female-assigned trans people, and then assuming that that coolness was relevant to male-assigned trans people too. If you do the math thing where there’s a four on each side of the equals sign so you can erase both of them, then look: this is expecting patriarchy to affect men in the same way that it affects women.”

reblogging this post by imogen forever because she does a way better job than me of laying this stuff out without flipping out about it

People who think academia is better than real life experience need to fuck off tbh

Taking Psychology does not give you more authority on autistic issues than Autistic people

Taking a Queer theory course does not give you more authority on queer issues than queer people

Taking an African American studies or East Asian studies or whatever else does not give you more authority on race issues than people of colour

I don’t give a shit about your fancy degree sit the fuck down and listen to the people who have actually lived through what you’ve read a book about

Photo 1 -Gender Neutral bathroom, written over Women.
Photo 2- Men’s bathroom.

Trans inclusive feminism is creating a gender neutral bathroom.

Patriarchy is giving men their own and making “women, etc.” share.

Btw this is the ONLY gender neutral bathroom I’ve seen at the venue.

This pisses me off more having it the way they do over not having it at all. This says you’re either a man or a woman either way.
