less gay men who’ve known their sexual orientation since birth, and more ~confused about their sexuality~ queer women who find out they like the girl in their math class a little too much for it to be platonic. less love triangles between two straight men and one straight women, and more poly partnerships between 3 or more people, regardless of gender. less stories about horndog straight guys, more stories about asexuals who just want to find someone to cuddle. less relationships between abled mind and bodied people, more relationships between people with disabilities. more stories about learning and acceptance. more representation. more.
what if the world was made of pudding
"your made-up pronouns aren’t real words"
ah yes, as an english major i can confirm that no one has ever made up words to compensate for gaps in the language
all words occur naturally in caves located deep in the Amazon rainforest, where they are carefully handpicked by linguists and preserved in dictionaries
Fun Fact: Just because someone has a wheelchair, doesn’t mean they can’t walk. A lot of people benefit from a wheelchair because they can’t balance well or it is too painful to walk. So if you see a person briefly stand out of their wheelchair, or take a few steps, or even if you see them with a wheelchair sometimes but not always, it doesn’t mean they’re faking, and you shouldn’t call them out on it.
I once told a joke about a straight person.
They came after me in droves.
Each one singing the same:
Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.
Do not fight fire with water.
Do not fight fire with foam.
Do not evacuate the people.
Do not sound the alarms.
Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.
Do not barricade the door with damp towels.
Do not wave a white flag out of the window.
Do not take the plunge from several stories up.
Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.
Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.
Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.
When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Stand and burn.
telling us to stop hating our oppressors is equal to telling us to stop complaining about being oppressed—it only enables further oppression. if your rights are being taken away, if you are being discriminated against, if you are suffering violence from those around you, you have a right to be angry. you have a right to fight back.
so take your silencing tactics and shove them up your privileged ass because I will not sit quietly; my anger will be heard.
