When some one tells me that I’m being ‘Intolerant of intolerance’ I get a little confused. What does that mean? What do they want me to respond with?
“Sure go ahead, keep talking about how I’m a bad person because I’m pansexual”
IN my perfect world, the people who are intolerant still have a chance to exist, A chance to live their lives and be happy. The only difference is that they are not attacking me or trying to tear my life apart.
In the perfect world of the disconcerting majority of Intolerant people, I’m dead or incarcerated. My pansexuality is Shocked out of me, MY ADHD has me put in an institution, or on the streets, and My autism has me sterilized.
So When Intolerant people want me to tolerate their hate, I ask them about their perfect world. I ask them where non-whites are in their perfect world, I ask them where the autists are. I ask them where the gays are, what they are doing, what their lives look like. More often than not, they just want us all gone. Out of sight or just dead.

“Punk is musical freedom. It’s saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster’s terms, ‘nirvana’ means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that’s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.”
We must stand together, we must march together. The Pride Parades in the coming years must be the biggest and most vibrant ever.
We will light up our nation every day of our lives because we are our own Guiding stars. Let us stand together and form a million constellations that will light the sky of all the queer kids that will come in the future.
