My apologies LGBT+ community

I formally apologize to everyone in the LGBT+ community as someone who was raised outside of it(but quite close to it) and didnt believe that you actually experienced shit like super invasive questions about your relationships.

Im sorry that these real problems are used as comedic moments on tv and therefore portrayed as fictional.

Like if one more person finds out my boyfriend is trans or realize who Im with and immediately turns around to say “but how does sex work” I might stab them, and Im someone who has no problem talking about my sex life with strangers.

That’s how often this happens, that me, someone with absolutely no boundaries has been made uncomfortable by it.

Its not that Im uncomfortable with answering, its that Im flabbergasted that so many people ask and expect a serious answer beyond “How the fuck is that any of your business?” Or “Well you first, do you and your husband prefer anal or vaginal sex?”.

I mean, I knew about discrimination, and knew about the struggles of both finding and accepting yourself (but now that Im experiencing it feel I may owe you an apology for underestimating that one too) , and of course the danger of not being accepted, being attacked or even killed~~ all huge things that as an ally I was aware of and tried to learn more about,

I am sorry that I never acknowledged, and may have attributed to your social woes.

Goddamn people are invasive and rude.

Dear… Everyone.

Dear lesbians who have hit on me, Im flattered. Imma tell you I’m into men pretty quick because I dont want to waste your time, NOT because im in anyway upset about you flirting. Please dont feel negative shit when I inform you, we’re chill, nothing negative happened!!!

Dear staight dudes who assume I’m gay or trans(or anyone who does, but especially straight dudes because they seem to have the most issue when their assumptions are wrong), we got no hard feelings. I have no shame in being called “he” or a lesbian. You did not offend me. Im gonna tell you otherwise because thats my truth, but we’re chill.

Dear people who ask me if Im “sure” or tell me that “you know im actually gay” or deny that I can express myself in such masculine ways without being LGBT, youre a pain in my ass and need to reevaluate why you think you know better than someone else about who THEY are.

Dear bullys, I see you. Dont think I dont see you. Don’t think that because youre LGBT that you arent bullying me when you verbally attack me for “pretending to be gay” or “trying to be special. Don’t think that because you’re straight you know what straight looks like/how its supposed to be. Dont think that because I make you uncomfortable that makes it okay to attack me. Why do I make you uncomfortable?

Dear homophobes, if you attacked me because you "thought” I was gay or trans, you still attacked me. You dont get a pass because you were wrong about my identity. Im not gonna be like “oh shit, you MEANT to attack an LGBT person? Well were cool”. Your homophobia alone makes me dislike you. You need to reevaluate and fix yourself… Or just fall into a deep hole. Whichever it takes.

Dear people who deny that this shit happens, you make dealing with it even harder. My issues with the ways that being gnc effects my social moments are not “just internalized homophobia”. My issues are with my identity being ignored, denied, and twisted and being verbally attacked and threatened for existing.

Dear other cishet gnc people, the opposite sex not being attracted to you is not oppression. The glimpses of homophobia you get treated to does NOT make you entitled to LGBT peoples narratives. You can talk about your issues without stopping others from talking about theirs or comparing them! Please do not create more hate/issues for me to deal with.

Dear everyone,

I am female, I like men, I look masculine(and love it). I exist. No hard feelings?

Confession

When I first saw the #20gayteen tag I 100% was trying to figure out why people were talking about gay teens specifically. Why are there twenty of them? What is this referencing?

And then I got it.

This is soooo innaccurate.

“Women have two eggs” – no, biologically a majority of females have two ovaries and are born with about 1 million eggs, that dies down to about 300000 by puberty.

As for chromosomes there are xx, xy, xo, xxx, xxy, xxyy, and MORE.

“A man will still be born with a fully functional penis and testicles. A women will still be born with a fully functional vagina” A female born with xo often doesnt develop breasts or functioning reproductive organs. Many females and males produce differing levels of testosterone and estrogen. Including males who have testosterone intolerances and females who have estrogen intolerances. This means many females and many males dont develop the sex characteristics often associated with their sex.

And ALL of that ignores the main fact, which is sex and gender are NOT synonymous. As agreed by most scientific fields, including biology, psychology, and sociology.

Thanks. Come again!

ssa-christians-united:

I posted this on Facebook and I will share it here as well: 

“In light of Pride Month, I want to understand something and maybe some of my LGBTQ friends can enlighten me:You say this month and is all about the pride to be who you really are so you don’t have to be persecuted anymore for loving who you want. You say that this pride is not the sinful, selfish form of pride.Why then do you seek to destroy the lives of anyone who speaks against you? The crossfit director who was fired, the bakery owner who declined to decorate a gay wedding cake, Christians who refuse to sign marriage licenses, churches who refuse to host gay weddings, Christian florists, the list goes on and on. You (and I’m speaking of a collective “you”) believe these people hate you, and your response doesn’t seem to show the love you so loudly profess. I’m willing to hear your side of things, as well as face backlash for even posing these questions.” 

Please let me know what you think. Hopefully we can have a discussion without resorting to swearing or name-calling.

Because differing beliefs and discrimination are not the same thing.

Because fighting for your rights is not the equivilant of “destroying someones life”.

The law says lgbt individals can marry- IT IS THEIR RIGHT. So when a worker refuses to sign a marriage liscense (when thats their job) they are not only refusing to do their job, but they are also ignoring the law.

Your religion does not have power of the state/national laws. We are a secular nation. We have secular laws. You dont get to decide whether or not other people drink, get tattoos, eat meat, write with their left hand, OR GET MARRIED.

If doing your job goes against your beliefs that is not on the people you are providing the service to that is on you and you alone.

The baker who refuses to bake the cake is discriminating. We are not forcing them to make a specific product or to run their business a specific way. We are asking for all individuals to be treated as equals. You dont get to discriminate and claim its your religious right. Its not.

If you believed that black people were immoral or if you had a “holy text” that stated poc were less than you and you refused to service them no one would argue that that is discrimination. This is the same thing.

Could you imagine if you refused to sell your product to women, poc, or left handed individuals?

If you can’t do your job because its against your beliefs, find another job.

******** I keep using we, but i dont ‘think’ I actually fall into lgbt+??? so consider the we as me speaking as an ally~ Im not trying to speak for others who are actually in the community******

I’m so excited for life!

I’m alive right now.

I got to see gay marriage become legalized in my own country.

I got to see ireland fight a ban on abortion and W I N, giving me hope for women everywhere!

I get to see rape actually being talked about!

Internalized and systematic racisim is being noticed, discussed, and fixed bit by bit!

People are becoming more accepting of individuals from all walks of life!

We are embracing differences!

I have so much hope for women, races, and yes even the irreligious communities 💚

Yes, we have a lot of problems. No everything is not great, but everyday we take a few steps further.

Today is a good day to be alive, and tomorrow will be even better!!!!

Enjoy being alive 💚💛💚
