Never say that you “don’t care” about a person’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities
Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them
"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful
labels are for soup cans and queer kids who want to know that they aren’t alone
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
hearing straight people talk about gay people without them knowing you’re gay is surreal. i feel like an undercover spy. they think i’m one of them
Don’t let boys who get turned on by cartoon ponies tell you shit about life
Don’t let people who judge your fetishes/taste in film and television tell you shit about life.
Don’t let people who dismiss the relentless and extreme sexualisation of a children’s television programme, who are therefore dismissing also the unavoidable availability of such explicit content to any child viewing related internet search results and webpages, as merely personal ‘fetishes/tastes in film and television’, tell you shit about life.
