having a gay otp doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter
reading a lot of gay fan fiction doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter
i once knew a girl who spent most of her free time reading gay smut, but she was extremely uncomfortable any time she had to interact with a lesbian because she was afraid they’d hit on her.
that’s not being a supporter. that’s fetishizing homosexuality.
nobody cares if you ship destiel or johnlock or whatever, if you’re not okay with real life gay people, you’re still homophobic. it’s the same with guys who watch lesbian porn but don’t think that gay marriage should be legal. you can’t fetishize someone’s sexuality like that. that’s not okay and you are the worst kind of homophobe if you do.
Don’t you dare say that my sexuality doesn’t exist. It took me a long ass time to find it and to finally understand it. So don’t you dare come here and try to make me smallerby telling me that my sexuality is bullshit.
Hi, fellow feminist here :) you’re against sexism, right? Well believe it or not, men are affected by sexism, white people can be affected by racism, etc. so here’s a rule of thumb.
Take what you’re about to say and replace man with woman, straight/hetero with gay/lesbian/homo or white with black.
For example, “all men must die”. Replace “men” with “women” and you get “all women must die”, right? That’s sexist, correct? For example, “all cishets must die”. replace it with “all nonbinary and trans people must die”. That’s transphobic, right?
Well if it sounds hateful when you replace your word with a minority, then it is a hateful sentence.
The purpose of feminism is to support EVERYONE, not just people like you. So stop being whiny hypocrites, put on your big girl panties, and don’t just be a feminist, be a feminist who promotes equality for ALL.
Love, Lucy (a fellow feminist)
UPDATE: in feminism, women should be first. The woman is top priority. What I’m trying to say is i don’t believe in fighting sexism with sexism.
