see i know terms

I’ve been feeling really frustrated with the lack of pansexual categories in queer book lists, so I’m going to make my own list of books with pansexual characters to share with y'all, because I know I’m not the only frustrated one. I have a few so far, but if y'all know any, please let me know! any genre is fine!

I’m looking for books with

  • characters who are canonically pansexual, either stated in the book or by the author elsewhere. an example of this is basically when the word pansexual is actually used.
  • characters who are strongly hinted at being or implied to be pansexual. an example of this is when a character says that they just like people or gender doesn’t matter (in regard to their attraction), something along those lines.

I know there are books with pansexual characters, they’re out there, they exist. we just have to do a bit of digging to find them. and apparently no one else is willing to help out pansexual people looking for book rep, so I’m taking it upon myself to do the job (with, hopefully, a little bit of help from y'all).

okay, I’m gonna end this here before I start ranting about how shitty it is for someone to compile a list of “queer books” that only has lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender books, because there are so many other identities that are included in “queer”, and they were just not even mentioned a single time in the entire post, so, why specifically entitle a post as “queer”, when "lgbt" more accurately describes the post?

A collection of signs from the Women’s March on Washington - Toronto today… it was an amazing turnout, the organizers reported approximately 60,000 people came out! I love this city. I hope this energy continues as the world deals with whatever the hell is going to happen over the next four years. 

(Also, Margaret Atwood was actually at the Toronto march…I didn’t see her, but I hope the person holding The Handmaid’s Tale sign did.)

My feeling is that, knock on wood, if it came around again, it wouldn’t be a bad thing for it to be four or five years later. That might actually be kind of interesting. How weird would that be, on a personal level, to find yourself back with those people? ‘So… where did we leave off?’ It’s such a strange idea, but it’s potentially very healthy for a story like that. So we’ll see. I know where we stood at the end of Season 3, in terms of what he was thinking about. And it did reflect some elements of Silence of the Lambs… He loves that source material, as he would tell you. [Bryan] envisioned taking some elements of that novel and reworking it through the Will-Hannibal relationship… I think it would be more through the filter of Bryan

when you really thought you two had a thing going on

Wait Horace’s Odes 1.3 is the most adorable thing. Sometimes I forget that all these amazing Latin poets aren’t living in isolation from eachother, then here comes Horace all, “Hey, my friend Vergil’s about sail on a ship and the sea can be really dangerous, so please just make sure he gets there safely, okay?” And then 2000+ years later we still have this poem. “Ship, I pray, you should keep the half of my soul safe.” So cute!!

Why don’t we ever see Steve struggling to come to terms with his new body? (I know why but just listen ok I need this)

As someone who also had a list of problems with my body I know that physical pain and discomfort easily trigger dissociation, so I think it’s likely that Steve would already be familiar with dissociation when his body changes.

And yeah, his new body is great – no aches and pains, no labored breaths – but it is RADICALLY different than the body he’s had his entire life. I mean he’s like 4 times as massive literally. How can ANYONE go through that without feeling a massive disconnect from their body, let alone someone who already has a history of dissociation.

To top it all off, instead of having time to recover and come to terms with his new form, he goes right into the action of getting turned into an icon rather than a person, then goes to war.

All I’m saying is that Steve Rogers must still be experiencing a deep disconnect from his body, he likely still acts like a small, sickly kid, constantly forgetting that he’ll never be again what was once so familiar.

kristoffuu replied to your post: terfs are literally just as bad as the dudes who…

What is terf? I see the term all the time but I don’t know what it means. All I know is that they are problematic.

a terf is a lesbian who call’s trans women, men, and basically doesn’t want them apart of their community because they think trans women are trying to invade their community. they are a lot of the time also what many call “radfems” or radical feminists who are also really bad so yeah

You know when I see George is attending a £6,000 a term school payed for by tax payers like my parents it makes me really sad. I went to a free school, not the best and I left early because it made me depressed. So I didn't get the best chance at life. Where as George who will probably end up like his mum, not working at all and have everything paid for it really sucks.

Relax Inoue , This Time I’m Still Me 

I’m so happy about this because we are finally able to get some kind of closure of the lust arc . I think the lust arc was the worst time ichigo and orihime ever had to live . Ichigo because he completely lost control of himself and his powers and went as far as to kill one of his ennemies and to hurt Ishida and Orihime because she saw the man she loves turn into ‘ a monster’ all while believing it was her own weakness and inability to fight that provoked it all . 

And look at them now . Ichigo is smiling like that to reassure Orihime but there is also a little bit of pride in himself in this smile . I think Ichigo is finally happy that he was able to fully control and understand his powers . He believed for such a long time that the hollow inside him was a beast that he would have to control all his life and here he is proud that it is not the case . Proud of his powers , proud of his heritage and the mixed powers he got from his mom and dad . Ichigo is proud of himself because he understood that there was no monster inside him that could one day hurt his friends . He is proud because he was strong enough to accept his nature and the entirety of his powers . 

And Orihime who always believed herself to be weak and a burden and who is so sure Ichigo’s transformation on the dome was because she was unable to fight . She is fighting beside Ichigo just now . She is helping , protecting him . And she understands Ichigo is not losing himself ever again . She understands that in the dome she did not wake up the monster in Ichigo but a part of his very soul . A power she thought he couldn’t control . But now he is strong enough to control it . He is strong enough to fight with it and protect his friends with it and not hurt them because of it like before . 

So yes this smile is there to reassure Orihime but also to tell her “Hey Inoue , look how strong I got  . Now I’m finally strong enough to protect all those I care about . I’m strong enough to control my powers and not lose myself ever again and hurt one of my friends”

i’ll say this once on my blog because i feel it’s necessary at this time: we DO NOT know g-dragon’s sexuality. do not speculate on it. it is private and personal information. it’s rude and disrespectful to assume he’s ANY sexuality, including straight (which some of you seem to think is the “default” sexuality). do not assume he’s straight. do not assume he’s gay. be angry people are invading his privacy, NOT that people think he’s gay or straight or anything in between. kwon jiyong is not a mannequin you can pose to fit whatever image you desire. this goes for ANY human being, public figure or not. do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

You know what I want to see from Mulder and Scully more than sex and grocery shopping? Weird ass couple things. You know what I’m talking about. I want to see Mulder suck the air out of Scully’s mouth while she’s talking so she makes a strange sound and then they laugh and spend the next 10 minutes recreating it. I want to see Mulder chasing her around the house making baboon noises and her squealing when he catches her and throws her over his shoulder. I want to see Scully roll up a towel and snap it at Mulder’s ass when he comes out of the shower. I want to see her imitating famous hollywood movie lines so badly that Mulder stars choking with laughter. I want to see them comfortably weird, utterly strange, so at peace with one another that they become disgustingly abnormal to those around them.

Give me that.

During and after on a sort of experiment I did. And by experiment I mean “basically beetle cleaning, but very low maintenance and also flies.” Anyway I like how it worked out but flood waters kind of semi-macerated some skulls and killed the colony.
