“Mike Pence is so anti-gay, you just know he’s closeted.”

Or you know, maybe he’s just a violent bigot that hates LGBT people. Maybe we should stop shifting the blame for the violence LGBT people face onto LGBT people and accept that he’s a hateful fucking person. Every homophobe is not hiding in the closet. More than likely Pence would just rather see gay people tortured as a “cure,” and rid from this Earth. Maybe y’all can stop with this pathetic cop out and actually push back against people like this in our society?


Dear homophobic family…

Recently the most well-known toy industry in my country, went on and created a very pioneering commercial to advertise their products. This industry, is infamous for its “too provocative” and “controversial” commercials, and every year they receive a variety of reactions, other positive other negative. However, this year they have caused a tsunami of bad reactions. This is, due to the fact that this commercial portrayed two couples - one heterosexual and the other homosexual. As soon as it aired, a myriad of people started blasting it because apparently, we shouldn’t get overexposed to this kind of immoral situations.

So the other day, my whole family was gathered in our house for dinner when suddenly this unacceptable - as my father likes to call it - commercial showed up. A series of unwanted and judgmental remarks followed, to say the least. Apart from offensive insults towards the LGBTQ+ community, referring to them as “ fags ”, my uncle went on and stated that these people are, and I quote: not functioning properly and they are the biggest travesty in our days. I certainly could not put up with this kind of behavior, so I interfered, supporting and defending both the commercial and same-sex love. Not being able to finish what I initially had started to say, my brother interrupted me once again to say that “they are abnormal, and a mistake of the nature.” My uncle agreed and prompted to add that “this propaganda-commercial is aimed at young children and they shouldn’t grow up seeing stuff like this on television, having homosexuals as their role models and consider being gay as normal, because it isn’t.” ( as if having a gay kid is the end of the world and such an appalling thing.) At this point, I couldn’t hear anymore of this nonsense, and I proceeded to tell them that I have friends of the LGBTQ+ community and they happen to be the nicest people I’ve ever had the fortune to meet, that they are perfectly normal, with amazing personalities and I love them for who they are and that their sexual preferences will not affect my opinion on them.

What came out of my uncle’s mouth later was so absurd that made me completely lose my temper and my patience started to run thin. It was “ you should stop hanging out with these people, they’ll make you one of them in the end, like it’s some kind of a trend.” (Hey uncle, if you weren’t aware of this, I’d like to tell you that I am already like them, nice to meet you.) The nerve he actually had to tell me who I should hang out with or not. First of all, being gay/lesbian/bi etc is not a disease that spreads by communicating with people who identify themselves as these certain sexualities, it’s not a choice, it’s who someone is. It’s how we feel, how our minds work, we do not have the ability to pretend like this attraction doesn’t exist because it does and we cannot dismiss it. Furthermore, I am not whο I am because it has become a “trend”. I’ve always known that I wasn’t straight, it goes back to when I was still 9 years old and I don’t think I was influenced because it was a thing - a trend - back then. It is not a choice, it is not a phase. I am content and happy with myself, we all are, why can’t you be too? Why do you have to set limits on love and attraction based on gender? Just because you have a miserable life, it does not mean it gives you the right to go around and make others’ lifes miserable too. I do not wish to be defined by my sexuality, I am the same person I always was and will be.

If I want to identify as LGBTQIA I will. If my husband does not he will. Tired of aphobes telling me our relationship is not LGBTQIA... they're being transphobic / truscum at that point. Because both my husband and I do not identify as any gender. And we are both on the aspectrum (he is demi-sexual/romantic and I am a-sexual/romantic). I respect his gender, his orientation, and his decision to not consider himself LGBTQIA... and he respects my decision to consider myself as such. Aphobes go away

Rant time

Beware: it’s going to be controversial, but I have to.

I truly, deeply hate the fact that so many (not all of course, but there’s a lot of them) of the worst exorsexists on this website, the most hellbent about forcing alignments down others’ throats, the most exclusionary of non-aligned and multigender people, are exclusively binary aligned nb people. Exorsexist cis people, of course it’s bad, but to be expected. Binary trans people, well they’re still binary.

Other nb people though… Pushing the “man as a class/woman as a class” narrative, calling other binary aligned people “nb women/men/boys/girls” without their consent, calling any attraction towards/by nb people who don’t want to be grouped under the binary fetishizing, calling non-aligned nbs straight, calling solarian nblw “straight males”.

I can’t stomach them.

And I am officially tired of pretending it’s always The Cis.

Take notice: I’m not trying to say all exclusively binary-aligned people are exorsexist towards other nbs or that those who aren’t eba are never shit towards eba people. Exclusively binary-aligned people who want their non-binary identity recognized and don’t mind the fact that we generally prioritize non-aligned ones will always find acceptance and support on this blog.

But… damn.

The worst is, you can’t even call them out because they’d be like “I’m LITERALLY NON-BINARY holy shit I’M GONNA SCREAM”.

These fuckers.

my friends sometimes make jokes like "i identify as a lightbulb" i feel they're making fun of non binary people even though i've told a few of them i'm gender fluid and i thought i could trust them

Your friends are being transphobic and likely don’t take your gender seriously. You can try sitting down with them and having a serious conversation about the truthfulness and validity of nonbinary genders and how jokes like that are not only offensive but actively put us at risk, but at the end of the day you have to look out for yourself and make sure you’re surrounding yourself with folks who support you.

We need more lesbian role models who are proud they've never touched a penis. We really need the momentum to remind other lesbians there was a time just over five years ago where everyone knew being gay meant you were same sex attracted.

We really don’t and you clearly don’t have good sources on lgbt history because you sound dumb as hell lol

Trans kid tips

When a sub teacher calls your birth name out, just say they wrote the wrong name into the system in freshman year and haven’t changed it yet. This happened to a cis friend of mine. In fact, tell all the regular teachers that as well if you aren’t comfortable being outed to them.

anonymous asked:

someone (a cis girl) i know said to me (a nb person) that I hurt trans people because she doesn't think nb/other genderqueer exists and then would use derogatory terms for trans people she didnt like :/

She is the only one who is hurting trans people. You aren’t hurting anyone just by existing. Our validity as trans folks doesn’t hinge on whether or not cis people like us personally. We’re still real and valid and deserve basic human decency. Don’t pay her any mind, friend. She has no idea what she’s talking about.

Forcing lesbians to interact with dick is corrective rape. I love how bright and wonderful Kate McKinnon is. Fewer lesbians will torment themselves to fake attraction to trans identified males to be accepted in their peer group. I don't know why you care more about straight men who might not even have dysphoria, than you do homosexual females who are discriminated against for their sex and their same sex attraction. Homosexuality is valid! Homophobia is not. Sorry you prefer Mike Pence.

I’m confused guys. What is it that they want?

hey, so im a 16 year old trans guy who was outed to my family two years ago. since then, theyve gone from thinking it was a phase to being actively transphobic. my mom literally refers to me as “s/he”, both my parents refer to me as delusional and have repeatedly told me im selfish for wanting to transition. ive resigned myself to having to put up with this until im 18, but when im legally an adult i want to be completely financially independent from them so they cant hold back my transition by threatening to cut me off. ive already given up on going to college, because i have no way of paying without their help. ive applied to several jobs, but haven’t been hired anywhere yet. my paypal is paypal.me/theartofdestruction if any of yall want to donate. im currently really bad at digital art, but i can draw you something on paper for $5-$10. if all of my followers donated $1, id be able to transition & start a new life where im not constantly afraid. please, donate or rb if you can. this means the world to me
