Fuck you and your “I’m so progressive” baby queer attitude. You didn’t start this movement. You don’t own this movement. You obviously don’t know your queer history. The queens of Stonewall were the backbone of our movement. 

Also, instead of whining about the events you don’t have, plan an event (though I swear to god that if you make it drag queen-excluding/shaming, I hope it fucking fails). The reason Atlanta has so many queer spaces and queer events is that we got out there and made them. Nobody owes you a queer event that cater to your needs and whims. Work for it.

You know, like the drag queens did.

Something I Forgot…

… And how quickly we’ve all forgotten, perhaps. 

In 2003, Lawrence v Texas was decided by SCOTUS, and in the words used by Lambda Legal, “established, for the first time, that lesbians and gay men share the same fundamental liberty right to private sexual intimacy with another adult that heterosexuals have.”

The law made oral and anal sex acts illegal between members of the same sex, even though they were legal between men and women. People were arrested. It has not been even 12 years since SCOTUS finally struck down laws against gay sex. For more information, see Flagrant Conduct

No one is fucking arresting you for not having sex. JFC. 

On Apologies and Forgiveness

theorlandojones:

I’ve been on Tumblr for 387 days. I’ve made 824 posts. I currently have 61,348 followers.

During my time on this platform I’ve posted many things that were silly, many that were heartfelt and a number of things (either posted here or posted on Twitter and referenced here by others) that were problematic.

Yesterday was an example of the latter.

During last night’s live tweeting of Sleepy Hollow I made a post that, although in no way my intention, overtly contributed to the rape culture climate that normalizes and trivializes very serious and very real instances in which people (mostly women) are victimized.   

Intention, of course, does not mitigate offense.

What I wrote was not OK and without qualification or equivocation I apologize.

I’m especially thankful to those of you who reached out to me personally to share your thoughts and engaged in an active dialogue about this issue.  

I also appreciate the perspective of those who continue to throw shade, who are disappointed, who think I’m full of shit/insincere/misogynistic/have no business in fandom/try too hard/etc.

In the words of carnivaloftherandom (whose post on the need to include more diverse voices on this issue was VERY informative to me - http://carnivaloftherandom.tumblr.com/post/80011851294/rainn-has-become-part-of-rape-culture) I will endeavor to FAIL BETTER.

Thanks for your time in reading this note.

Sincerely,

Orlando

as a parent it is your god damn fucking job to look after your children stop treating your children like they are burdens

you signed up to have a child, the child did not sign up to have you as a parent

keep this in mind. do not expect your children to immediately give you back all the things you give them. they are children. love them. cherish them. treat them well.

repeat after me:

allies are not oppressed
being an ally is not a sexual orientation or gender identity
the A in LGBTQA stands for asexual

then what letter is for ally

THERE IS NO LETTER FOR ALLY

ALLIES DO NOT NEED A LETTER
ALLIES ARE LOVED FOR BEING AN ALLY
BUT YOU ARE NOT ANY SHADE OF GAY
OKAY
THANK YOU
A IS FOR ASEXUAL AND AROMANTIC

Once again, baby queers think they invented the movement. They think they invented the terminology, and they get pissy when anybody else says differently. The A stood for ally for a hell of a lot longer than it’s stood for anyone else, but hey, go on and act like nothing previous generations did count. You were the very first queers ever, baby queers, you win.

Some of us remember when DOMA was originally passed. Some of us remember when no state had marriage equality. Some of us refreshed frantically about the MA Supreme Court decision throughout the summer and then autumn of 2003. Some of us cried in 2004 when so many amendments passed. 

All of those things happened before the term ‘asexual’ was ever used. 

Look, even the ‘what is asexuality’ cartoon acknowledges that asexuals don’t experience systematic oppression the way us queers tend to…

According to George Chauncey’s eponymous Gay New York, the Harlem Renaissance of the ’20s provided an opportunity for gay men to create their own social and cultural spaces within the burgeoning nightlife in the neighborhood.
