"are there any straight people in your story?”

"no they’re not relevant to the plot"

zahhhak:

"why can’t we have STRAIGHT pride events?"

you do

that’s called almost every single prom king/queen election, romance movie, introduction of a new love interest on a television show, famous wedding, and almost everything else on the planet involving romance that wasn’t explicitly MADE for the sake of being lgbtq+ oriented

it isn’t about two males getting together, it’s about the fact that if cas were in a female vessel, their relationship would have begun 3 seasons ago

i’m not a shipper but there is absolutely no way to deny this

In some ways, the term “pansexual” came out of biphobia and a need to stipulate that one was not transphobic. If you take the binary view of “bisexual,” then a sexuality specific to an attraction to men and women could be seen as being noninclusive of transgender men and women. On the other hand, transgender men and women want to (and should) be seen as simply men and women, meaning that they would/should be included in that very binary; not including them tends to be much more phobic and noninclusive.

Then there is the thought that the binary view of bisexuality can be seen as phobic of anyone who identifies as genderqueer, or somewhere along the gender and sexuality spectrum, not identifying as male or female, man or woman. But, as I mentioned before, the true definition of “bisexual” is being attracted to those who are the same as me and those who are different from me, encompassing all genders and identities. The often-repeated argument that “bi means two” ignores a simple fact: “Same” and “different” are, indeed, two groups.

Loud People and Queer Crushes

neutrois:

lady88:

It still shocks (and mostly just disappoints) me how SHOCKED people are when I tell them that it is 100% legal to be fired simply for being gay.

They look at me like I’m lying and say things like "nooooo, that can’t be right?".

I have been fired twice (in Ohio) for being openly gay.

I have been asked:

  • to not wear my wedding ring
  • Not acknowledge my wife’s existence
  • To "just say you have a husband"
  • To just not answer “yes” when people ask if I’m married because "you’re not REALLY married"
  • To not bring my wife to the company FAMILY Christmas party
  • Let people just assume we’re sisters
  • Just make it easier on everyone and “just say you’re divorced”

These were not requests made from some Mom and Pop shop. I was a corporate executive for a large chain of high volume restaurants. My boss was the President of Human Resources, and she would walk into my office and say the most ignorant things you can possibly imagine.

People in America need to be educated on the reality that is life as a gay person in  this country.

It’s not all gay pride parades and appletinis. 

We need a leg to stand on.

We need people to wake up and educate themselves on the rights we are denied.

We need people…gay, straight, and in between, to open their eyes, stop ignoring what doesn’t directly effect them, and educate themselves.

Same (or worse) goes for trans. Not to mention other countries…

We’re discussing scent and pheromones and oh my god

LESBIANS CAN LITERALLY DETECT OTHER LESBIANS BY SENSE OF SMELL AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY PREFER THE SCENT OF OTHER LESBIANS

LIKE THERE IS SCIENTIFIC PROOF OF THIS I LOVE IT I LOVE PHEROMONES

This explains gay-dar. It’s not a sense of just knowing it’s the fact that we can fucking smell each other

I really hate all of the “duh of course she’s gay I thought everyone knew that” around Ellen Page.

I have two semi-functional eyes and a damn good gaydar, of course I suspected, of course. But I hate the ~everyone already knows~ thing. I hate it. It’s disempowering and humiliating and arrogant and mean.

Yes allllllll of this.

2,000 people of the city of Stockholm gathered at the Stockholm Olympic Stadium to show their support to the LGBT people of Russia and to sing the most beautiful national anthem in the world.

Haven’t seen this posted on tumblr, so here it is. Sweden puts on rainbow flags and films a video of themselves singing the Russian anthem.
