it kind of just dawned on me that stalking isn’t a funny thing to joke about because stalkers aren’t a joke they’re very real and very scary and not to be joked about because especially for people who have/have had a stalker, it’s not a funny experience.
Passing as male:
words cannot express how much i’d like to see the lgbt*qia*p acronym replaced
- most of the public only says lgbt which is really really limited
- theres a lot of confusion over what the a* stands for (hint it’s not allies but people seem to think it is! sigh)
- it’s really! really long! and it’s awkward to say and type
- it doesnt include a lot of identities!
- it leaves room for cishet people to shove their way in
something like gsm (gender and sexual minorities) would be ssooooo mcuh better
- theres no confusion over who’s included in this group (everyone who isnt straight and cis is a minority), cishet people are rightfully excluded
- it’s an “umbrella” term; people whose queer identities are not in the old acronym don’t have to feel excluded
- it’s really concise! it’s way easier to say and type and you dont have to worry about excluding people by which version you use
- also easier for people to remember
like. let’s do this. let’s make it happen. please
Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities
+ Not a super long acronym.
+ No room for cishets.
+ No “A for ALLIES!”
+ Includes all minority gender identities, such as trans*, bigender, genderfluid.
+ Includes all minority sexualities, such as bisexuality, asexuality, pansexuality.
+ Includes all romantic minorities, such as panromantic, aromantic, homoromantic.
The problem with this acronym has come from cishet people in a kink lifestyle who feel they are a ‘sexual minority’. :(
Including 22 children in the first ten months.
That’s one every 36 hours.
Murdered. Violently. A 16 year old is attacked by a mob and killed on her first day as herself. After having been thrown out of her home two years earlier.
People want to know why I do not back down or give ground, that’s why.
This is what anxiety, aversion, and animus creates the approval for.
Below is a list of “informed consent” hormone providers, as posted here.

"Informed Consent" basically means that you can get access to hormones without needing a letter from a therapist or psychiatrist explaining that you really truly do need them. The link above explains it in better detail. To boot, the location in the list above is about ten minutes away from KCAI. I’m a little hesitant because it seems aalmost Too Good To Be True, so I’m going to do more research and find out exactly what they do and what they require, but shit, this is Significant.
Also worth a reblog for any babies who want to start hormones but cannot get a letter from a therapist for whatever reasons.
Until two years ago, Luke “Sasha” Fleischman was a shy teen, a loner with odd hobbies and a bright mind, but far from a civil rights activist.
But between Fleischman’s freshman and senior year something changed: Fleischman decided to identify as agender or “nonbinary” gender, neither male nor female. Sasha asked to be referred to by the pronouns “they,” “them,” and “their.”
Family members say that very personal decision helped the teen blossom. But police believe it also led another teenager to light Fleischman’s skirt on fire as the student slept on a local bus, causing severe injuries that could take months to heal.
Since the incident, public support for the injured 18-year-old has been overwhelming, with more than $20,000 raised to help with medical expenses and civil rights leaders expressing outrage about the case. And understanding seems to be growing about the issues of gender identity that Fleischman hoped to call attention to.
On Friday, about half the 100 students at Maybeck High School in Berkeley, where Fleischman attended, wore skirts for Skirts for Sasha Day and carried signs reading, “Get well, Sasha, we miss you.”
This is something I see get thrown around a lot and is rarely used correctly.

no but heres the thing
everytime i talk to someone i’m constantly listening for phrases and behaviors that will tell me they’re queerphobic
i’m on my guard all the time, even with my family and friends, because it’s the only way i know to keep myself safe
so when queer people talk about how fucking ridiculous heterophobia is it’s because you’re literally comparing fearing for your safety 24/7 to getting your fee fees hurt on the internet
- it’s okay to be genderfluid but usually a girl
- it’s okay to be genderfluid but usually a boy
- it’s okay to be agender one day and bigender the next
- it’s okay to not identify as any specific gender
- it’s okay to keep your gender to yourself
- your gender is your own goddamn business
