we neeeeeeeeeeed more media about queer people who aren’t miserable and victimized and end up brokenhearted or dead i hate that the only mainstream stories with queer protagonists are tragic and depressing, it is unnacceptable to me that this is the most readily available queer narrative for a 15 year old kid who’s afraid to come out to their parents
This is cute as fuck and describes pretty accurately how I feel too.
This comic is included Anything that Loves edited by Zan Christensen.
aside from this comic being really cute and honest, it also points out this really huge glaring problem in the gay community in relation to trans-men.
in my experience with a lot of gay men, they have this extremely purist view when it comes to what being a “real man” is, which is bad enough when you have different gay subcultures (bears, gymrats, etc) who have different specific definitions of what a “real man” is.
however for the most part, many gay men seem to agree upon a point of leaving trans-men not only out of their gender, but out of their sexuality as well and I have a real fucking problem with that.
i’m pretty open about things that relate to my sexuality, and i myself identify more or less as a homosexual, but i’ve found the worst part in the gay community is dealing with this bullshit. eventually i found that i at least have the luxury of telling guys to fuck off if i don’t meet their standards, but i know that’s a lot harder for folk when they seem to have the entire population of homosexuals more or less invalidating not only their gender, but their orientation as well.
with all of that said, i just ask this. if you happen to be a cisgender homosexual, like myself, don’t tell other gay men that they aren’t actually gay if they’re dating or have had relations with a trans-man because that’s a load of fucking bullshit.
more important, under any circumstance do not tell a trans-man they’re not a man or that they aren’t allowed to like other men who are homosexual, be they cis or trans.
that’s all i really wanted to say.
hey uhhh my dash seems to need this right now hello lets be better informed
If your reaction to being called out on bigotry is ‘oh noes mah feels’ then just gtfo
If your reaction to the way you’re called out being based in science is STILL ‘oh noes mah feels’ you’re literal shit.
I’ve said it twice before: treating people with anger and vitriol is going to make it harder to influence their point of view. You don’t need a pier-reviewed study to prove this; you only have to have some basic interaction with other human beings.
But I’m getting the feeling that you don’t have the benefit of that experience.
And it isn’t about my feelings. Actually, it would appear that I’m not the one with the hurt feelings here.
Yo what the fuck are you saying? If someone fucks up, you should straight up call them out on their bigoted bullshit with as much vitriol as you want. It’s THEIR fault for fucking up, there’s no need to be nice to racists. “oh if we’re nice to racists we can change their mind” yeah maybe. But if we’re mean to racists, they’ll be like “oh people don’t like it when I’m racist and they all treat me like shit when I’m racist, maybe I should stop being racist”. Pavlov shit. And that’s not even the main reason why people should be able to be ‘mean’ to bigoted people. Oppressed people shouldn’t have to restrict the way they act to be nice to racists. Racists should be shutting the fuck up instead.
