WHY ARE PEOPLE WITH PENISES GIVEN FREE CONDOMS WHEN THEY DON’T NEED TO HAVE SEX BUT PEOPLE WITH VAGINAS STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THINGS LIKE PADS AND TAMPONS FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN’T STOP
weird ive never heard of that before ok
sexuality does not make you more or less interesting
being gay doesn’t make you more exciting
being straight doesn’t make you boring
please stop equating queer sexualities and identities with exciting and special snowflake and better, because that’s just as dehumanizing as erasing them
I’m gonna straight up be honest with you, Kristen: this is kind of offensive.
1. Don’t use the word queer. You’re cishet, that’s not your word to use. (A better term would be lbgtqia+).
2.You don’t get to speak on the nuances of ~dehumanizing~ or erasing lbgtqia+ identities because you are not queer.
Secondly, we’re already aware that sexuality does not make a person more or less interesting - but the thing is? We hear this from cishet ppl constantly. We already hear that our identities don’t make us ~special~ or more interesting. We’re told that we’re not different from cishet people (while simultaneously being marginalised and shit on by cishet people FOR being queer). We’re told to stop “shoving our sexuality” into other people’s faces — when all we do is have the nerve to exist.
As someone who is not straight, my sexuality is important to me and it makes up a part of my identity. Lbgtqia+ people having lbgtqia+ headcanons and characters is not using sexuality as a throwaway quirk — we’re creating our own representation because we get fucking scraps compared to what straight ppl get.
So yeah. This? No. This is not okay for you — especially you being so popular in fandom — this is not an okay thing for you to say and I am 100% not cool with it.
wait why is queer not ok for straight people to use?
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.

“maybe if i buy myself a new sweater, i will feel better”
“maybe if i get so drunk i can’t see, i will feel better”
“maybe if i sleep for fourteen hours, i will feel better”
“I feel concern that maybe straight men do not know how to express human emotion without boners as a reference point. Does joy feel like a boner in the heart? Does depression feel like erectile dysfunction of the brain? This is truly a demographic in crisis.”
