why i, a pansexual lady, am not big on pride

it’s not that i’m not proud of my sexuality, or that i’m against the community or pride month, but rather that the community isn’t really with me

and maybe it’s the people i’m exposed to or that i just don’t feel like i fit in with all the rainbows and eccentric parades but i do know that i just don’t fit in. i’m not “gay enough” for anyone, really. hets think i’m one of them, and my lgbt community doesn’t think i count

my entire sexuality is a joke about being attracted to pans. and i found it as funny as everyone else at first, but nobody takes me seriously when i try to explain what pansexuality really is. it’s boiled down to “oh so you’re bi” or “oh you just can’t make up your mind” or “oh you’re into kinky orgies” and like…i’m tired. people forget what i explain to them, they say my sexuality is “half-straight half-gay” and basically if i’m not in a same-sex relationship people will assume i’m suddenly straight

i came out a year ago, and i was never really ingrained into the community. everyone is nice to me…but i just don’t fit in. i am not flashy because…i’m not. i don’t feel comfortable at pride parades because i’ve been told time and time again my sexuality is not valid

more pan awareness, please. include us in your comments about wlw and lgbt issues. if you are someone who actually accepts and understands pansexuality, this obviously isn’t directed towards you, but please use your understanding and help us out! if you haven’t experienced what i’m talking about, that’s great, but i’m here to share my concerns! i don’t want to feel like i need to do anything over the top to prove my sexuality to the world. i want to be able to dress the way i do, act the way i do, and live the way i do, and still be accepted in a community that is supposed to support all sexualities

thanks! xx

anonymous asked:

I keep seeing stuff about how lesbian relationships would be ok but isn't it their pledge to Artemis to live romance free lives? Like I'm all for sexuality equality but isn't everyone supposed to make the same sacrifice to Artemis when they join? To remove romantic and sexual love from their lives in the name of Artemis? I don't want to ruin your headcanon here I guess I'm just curious if there's something I'm forgetting that could make it work? Sorry if this seems mean I don't want it to be :/

I pledge myself to the Goddess Artemis. I turn my back on the company of men, accept eternal maidenhood, and join the Hunt.

And then I get jiggy with my fellow huntresses ayyyyy

BUT ACTUALLY, the books are extremely heteronormative. It took nine books for RR to give us a non-straight character, and not only was he forcibly outed (no, no, don’t ever do this!), we don’t even officially know what his sexuality is.

My guess is it didn’t even cross RR’s mind when writing this that it is possible for girls to like anybody but boys. Seriously, for the entire first series we don’t even get a hint of a relationship that isn’t super 100% straighter than a southern Baptist church when they think God is watching. (Hilarious, considering the source material is more homosexual than Ellen and Neil Patrick Harris in rainbow bathing suits during Pride Month). 

So thanks for the loophole, RR!

Also: if anyone wants to continue this discussion please message me off anon. I don’t want to spam the blog more than I already have.

Ugh

So…

Apparently, Louis tweeted something homophobic. The first time I read it, I didn’t really think it was homophobic.  But I guess it doesn’t really matter that much, since it wasn’t Lou-

See what’s circled? It says “via Twitter for IPhone”. Louis has a Samsung! This is NOT him! This isn’t the first incident like this. I’ve seen cases where @Louis_Tomlinson has posted while outside meeting fans and even while performing at concerts. The Louis on Twitter isn’t Louis! He would NEVER tweet that, especially since that article in particular never even mentioned his sexuality.

I feel like Larry is going to come out soon. There’s been so much pent up anxiety, and the boys are hurting because of it.

On the Four Google Hangout, did anyone notice Louis and Haz? Look ar them when the interviewer asked if they missed the simplicity of their XFactor days.AND WAS I THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT PISSED WHEN BEN FUCKING WINSTON MADE FUN OF LOUIS’ STRIPES AND SUSPENDERS? That entire livestream made me ship Larry even more. I think I can speak for the fandom when I say that. And look what happened? Louis was punished for wearing that rainbow Apple shirt.

And Harry being punished for when Liam mentioned it’s important for a girl to be female and he said

Let this sink in. We’re in a fandom where our idols have to be punished. Even if Larry isn’t real, Modest! shouldn’t be taking it that seriously. Larry shippers ARE JUST THAT! Shippers! Why would grown men take this so seriously?? Maybe because we’re right.

Happy 94th Birthday to Judy Garland xx

“I know lots of girls who think it’s funny that I won’t wear silk dresses and use makeup. Maybe it is-I don’t happen to think so. When I’m eighteen, I want to be able to enjoy the things that come with that age. And I won’t be able to do things that I do now. So I’m just living my age while I can. Then, when I’m eighteen, I’ll have all the extra thrill of dressing in grown-up clothes and doing the things that grown-up people do. I am in no hurry.” - Judy (1939)

“I almost forgot that nice, warm feeling you get when the curtains part and you hear the orchestra and then the applause. You just want to give everything you have. Of course, I don’t mean you haven’t audiences in pictures, but you never see them until you go out in person. And audiences are so responsive and so spontaneous when they like you.”- Judy (1939)

“When you get to know a lot of people you make a great discovery. You find that not one group has a monopoly on looks, brains, goodness or anything else. It takes all the people-black and white, Catholic, Jewish and Protestant, recent immigrants and Mayflower descendants-to make up America. It just wouldn’t be our kind of America without any of them”- Judy speaking for America (1946)

“They nicknamed me ‘Little Leather Lungs.’ I hated that but I loved to sing. There is something wonderful about belting a song across the footlights, clear and true, and feeling it bounce off the top balcony. I can’t explain it. There’s nothing like it.”-Judy (1960)

“I don’t remember having any birthdays as a child. My mother was always afraid the studio would decide I was too old to play child parts. So we just ignored them.”- Judy (1960)

“People think of me as a neurotic kid, full of fits and depressions, biting my fingernails to the bone, living under an eternal shadow of illness and collapse. Why do people insist on seeing an aura of tragedy around me always? My life isn’t tragic at all. I laugh a lot these days. At myself, too. Lord, if I couldn’t laugh at myself I don’t think I’d be alive.”- Judy (1960)

“I truly have a great love for an audience, and I used to want to prove it by giving them blood. But I have a funny new thing now, a real determination to make people enjoy the show. I want to give them two hours of just pow!”- Judy (1961)

“I’m a victim of the most awful stage fright. I always get sick right before I go on stage. It’s such a lonely feeling. But no matter how frightened you are, you have to do it. I figure if people have gotten in their cars and driven there and paid to see you, you just bloody well have to go on.”-Judy (1962)

“My public image isn’t anything like me. People think I’m either a breakable Dresden doll or a wide-eyed Kansas teenager. I haven’t been a teenager for a long time, and if I were breakable, I wouldn’t be here now.”- Judy (1963)

“I think life is to be enjoyed. And it’s important to be economic in your life. Don’t work too hard, don’t live too hard. But laugh an awful lot. You must laugh a lot.”-Judy (1967)

“I’ve always taken The Wizard of Oz very seriously, you know. I believe the idea of the rainbow. And I’ve spent my entire life trying to get over it.”- The one and only Judy Garland.

Daryl Dixon: The Other Beth Greene

So, I’m nearly done with my analysis for “Alone” and my Evolution of Daryl Meta, but I thought I’d give you all little mini post to tide you over. I made an observation while writing the Daryl Meta that I felt deserved it’s own entry.

Daryl was the Beth of Season 2! (At least until Sophia walks out of the barn.) Seriously, though, he was the most hopeful and positive person out of the entire lot in the first half of that season. He wasn’t exactly rainbows and sunbeams, like Beth, but he’s also not a bubbly blonde girl either. Here are some examples I picked up on:

Daryl: It’s a waste of time, all this hopin’ and prayin’. We’re gonna locate that little girl and she’s gonna be just fine. Am I the only one zen around here? Good lord.

Andrea: You really think we’re gonna find Sophia?
Daryl: You got that look on your face, same as everybody else. What the hell’s wrong with you people? We just started lookin’.
Andrea: Do you?
Daryl: It ain’t the mountains of Tibet, it’s Georgia. She could be holed up in a farm house somewhere. People get lost, they survive. Happens all the time.

Daryl: Sophia’s got people lookin’ for her. I’d call that an advantage.

Daryl: I ain’t fool enough to think there are any flowers bloomin’ for my brother, but I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.

When visiting Carol in the R.V., Daryl learns that she cleaned it for when they find Sophia. Daryl tries to reinforce her sense of hope.
Daryl: She’s really gonna like it in here.

Daryl: I’m gonna find her… ‘cause I think she’s still out there.

Daryl: I’m close to findin’ this girl. I just found her damn doll two days ago!

Now, if that’s not a Daryl Dixon version of Beth Greene, I don’t know what is. When Carol gives up hope in “Pretty Much Dead Already,” that’s when Daryl’s hope and optimism begin to wane. If the mother of the girl doesn’t even think there’s a point in looking, then who’s left? What was it all for? He can’t be the only one still believing there’s a chance, and he really fights to get Carol to not give up. In Season 2, he relies on others to fuel his hope, instead of relying solely on himself. But when Sophia comes out of the barn, everybody loses hope, including Daryl.

Hope is something Daryl has been trying to regain throughout the course of the next two seasons. He finally lets it in again and embraces it, because of Beth. She ignites that light in him and he gets to hope through her, but then she also teaches him to have hope for himself. So he doesn’t have to rely on someone else to keep it alight.

I found it interesting how he comes full circle. He started off with hope, but not having the strength or emotional fortitude to hold onto it. He finally finds it again, with Beth. But, maybe even more importantly, he finds, through her influence, the strength to hang onto hope. Even when he’s alone, even when it feels like everything is falling apart, he holds onto it. He’s evolved so much. He’s strong enough, now, to keep hope alive in his heart, even in a moment when Season 2 Daryl would have given up.

Don’t you think that’s beautiful? ♥
