all these 20 - 30yos on here have only reached the point where they feel correct in characterising themselves as “bitter old queers” / “queer elders” bc they’re adults operating in online spaces that are occupied mostly by people much much younger than them. and that’s weird !! why do none of their peers look around and see that it’s w e i r d that a handful of people in their late 20s/early 30s, or even 40s in some cases, have such influence over a huge following of teenagers, many of them minors ??!!

you’re not “queer elders”. my octogenarian great uncle and his boyfriend are “queer elders” (but i’d never fucking call them that unless i fancied giving them a punch to the gut). you lot are weirdo 30 year olds who get a power trip from wielding this bizarre online social capital uve accumulated amongst internet kids. get the fuck away and make some friends your own age

Here’s a fun little experiment.

over 2 years ago, right when tumblr was at its most biphobic, I made a separate blog. A secret bi discourse blog, basically, where I could reblog things and fight biphobes without worrying about people i know irl finding out things about me that i’m not ready to come out to them about

Not long after making this blog, I kind of drifted off and did other things. This blog has been primarily abandoned for a long time. I’ve occasionally popped back on to post some things, but mostly it’s been left to gather dust.

And then I realized something. Every single person that I followed on this blog, which began its life as a blog to fight biphobia on tumblr, was a bi person or someone who also was vocally against biphobia. I blocked a lot of people for being really awful biphobes… and then I kind of left. This blog and its following list and block list are a time capsule from the heyday of biphobic discourse on tumblr

So I came back on again, and I went through a bunch of blogs, and here’s what I’ve found:

I have scrolled through my dash, I have checked the blogs that I followed for being vocally protective of bi people on tumblr. And what did I find? FOUR exclusionists. All of the rest are either inactive, have not posted enough to determine a position, or (overwhelmingly) inclusionists. In fact, my dash on this blog is almost ENTIRELY inclusionist posts. On a blog I created to follow people defending bi people.

So I’m checking the block list. All of these people I blocked for being biphobes. 

I went on their blogs and to /search/ace 

Exclusionist. Biphobe.

* - I wasn’t looking specifically for truscum or transphobes but in these instances it was readily apparent just by clicking on the blog! Fun.

Is this a scientific experiment? Nah. Are the sample sizes large enough to say anything definitively? No. But it is really telling that a dash that, 2 years ago, was full of bi positivity and defending against biphobic tumblr discourse, is now entirely the same thing but for aces. 

So the next time an inclusionist tells you that this is ALL rehashed 2014 bihet discourse, maybe listen to us.

I'm confused like i know you get so much asks abt this but what made ppl originally accuse you of being a aphobe if you're ace yourself?????? What did you do my child?????

i got this baity ask: {link} and it was requested as a userbox: {link} which i was fine with since this is unrelatableuserboxes and it makes no sense anyway

(& later someone wrote a call out post for me for making this box {link})

intracommunity bigotry really is the worst bc u cant call ppl out on it w/o them going “well im also THIS therefore youre a bigot for criticizing me” like damn since when did that completely irrelevant identity of yours come in steel shield form everytime i go to the Marginalized Identities Store all i get is a punch to the face and a pretty flag
