"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

lesbian and bi women should have a secret code word that we slip into conversation with girls we’ve just met to see if they also like girls 

Tumblr needs to stop sharing the surveillance stills that the police shared of Michael Brown shoplifting some cigars before he died.

Those stills/video should never have been released. But it was him, they were real, and Dorian Johnson admits to taking cigars from the store. Denying it while spreading those stills only keeps them in the spotlight longer.

It is irrelevant. The shooting had NOTHING to do with this. The officer who shot them had no knowledge of it. It wasn’t until hours later that they realized it was the same guy. The police only released this info to taint his memory, to manipulate the public and to make their guy seem more innocent. It’s dirty. It’s wrong. And that Mike Brown stole cigars from a store in no way makes his death less tragic or less of an injustice.

So - according to this CNN story - the police are admitting that they identified Brown as the suspect in the robbery AFTER he was dead, right?  Yet they’re claiming the alleged robbery as the impetus for the shooting?  They are aware they’re full of shit, right?

We’re watching you motherfuckers.

They need to take a fiction writing course that addresses continuity errors. Have they mentioned how they went from Brown shoplifting a candy bar to this particular robbery? ‘Cause they were pretty certain about that candy bar.

not gonna happen so long’s we got gays & lesbians being bi/panphobic…

Y’all are trying way too hard. For one thing “monosexual” is a whole different ballgame than “monosexism” since the former doesn’t necessarily imply oppression at all.

But thanks for trying to strip us of the language to express our lived experiences.

Seriously. Monosexual is just a word to describe people are sexually attracted to one gender. Monosexism is the toxic idea that everyone should be attracted to one (and only one) gender. This idea is spread, consciously and unconsciously, by straight people (homophobes to straight allies), and lesbian and gay people. It IS NOT the same as heterosexism (the belief that everyone should be heterosexual) but it DOES encompass it. It does NOT say that queer monosexuals are more privileged than bi/pan/ace people. Privilege isn’t a linear spectrum. This is no different from ace people using terms like sexuals to describe non-ace people, or allosexism to describe the toxic idea that everyone should be sexually attracted to at least one gender. As a bi women, I’m a bit tired of monosexuals trying to explain our own experiences to me and other bi/pan/ace people (including pi/pan/ace WOC and trans bi/pan/ace people). Note to queer monosexuals: Stop trying to make our specific struggles and hardships about you. Not all queer people face marginalization in the same way from the same sources.

thedrawbridgethatismypants:

I hear some monosexual queer folk whining about how multi & asexual folk talk about them being asses more than straight folk & TBH it’s true.

It’s true becuase we expect that shit from straight folks, but no from you.

It’s baffling that you guys understand how it feels to be told you can’t know…

are y’all always goin to believe some random with a sketchy sob story only sourced to a single facebook comment?
