I’m so sorry, but I just had to…
I love how y’all are laughing at this now when a few months ago it was ~*~so romantic~*~

I like this book a lot, but I hate that fucking line.

100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you
My dad showed my x-rays to a podiatrist and now an orthopod is looking at them. No major decisions yet since they haven’t seen me but I might have to have surgery and even if I don’t I’m going to have issues walking for several weeks. I have to find out what kind of wheelchair access there is in Peru. Otherwise there’s no chance of me getting to go. And the chance I have now is slim at best.
I know I sound overdramatic, but this has been one of the worst weeks of my life, and now the only thing that’s gotten me through this semester is probably ruined because I fucking tripped. I’ve wanted to go to Peru for my entire life, and I was finally going to get to go, with one of my favorite professors, to study one of my favorite things, on my first trip without my family. It was going to be phenomenal. And now I’ve fucked up everything.
I’ve handled breakups better than I’ve handled this.
Honestly, I don’t know how to deal with things anymore. I don’t have a reason to.
my fear is my right
my fear is my survival
and if u get offended by my fear of u then that just proves that i am 100% correct in fearing u
So I broke my foot last night. Because my life is one joke after another.
Bunnies are fucking stupid and I love them.
I WANT A BUNNY.
Also drunkness is so not worth it when your partner is at a dumb job
BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them
This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.
Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall. The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.
queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.
Here’s a very important documentary that’ll inform you about the crisis and the extent to which people had to suffer.
"bisexuals have straight passing privilege"
did you mean bi erasure ?
having people constantly assume im straight or gay based on who im dating or how I dress isn’t a privilege. it’s degrading and ignorant.
Anonymous asked: why is "hate breeds more hate" a bad thing to say?
Oh so many reasons.
1) it equates the anger of the oppressed to the hate of their oppressors.
2) it blames oppressed groups for their oppression. Bigotry doesn’t exist because people hate bigots. It exists because oppressed people oppose it. It exists because of bigots and because of privileged folks being complicit or tacitly condoning systems of oppression.
3) it’s fundamentally untrue. Hatred of oppression doesn’t lead to more hatred; it leads to progress.
4) it is used to attack any attempt by oppressed people to obtain liberation. Point out that something or someone is repulsively racist and all of a sudden you’re “breeding more hate”.
It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of reality that blames victims and excuses fucked up behavior.
I literally only ever saw this as people that live a life filled with hate will pass said hate onto their offspring. A child’s views are very often taken on from their parents and their environments. Literally BREEDING hate….. But I guess I’m wrong?
I think in this context: it’s okay. But I’ve seen it lately mostly among folks trying to shame oppressed peoples foe being angry at the people and institutions that create their oppression.
It’s part of a larger narrative that says that oppressed people ought to be willing to basically be martyrs. Some people just think that if oppressed folks are polite or civil enough that the violence they face will go away because the hearts of bigots will grow three sizes or whatever. It’s a noble thought, I suppose. But it does little for those experiencing that violence, delegitimizes important tactics to end that oppression, and even tries to silence oppressed folks who are justifiably upset about the forces working against them.
