straight people couldn’t last a day of Real, Actual Heterophobia. they can’t read a joke made at their expense without kicking up a fuss and resorting to queerphobic behaviours, can you imagine what they’d do if heterophobia began actually affecting their lives outside of a small subsection of a fucking website
Would someone write a post about how homophobia affects your daily life?
A friend of mine from home recently told me that he had to have a discussion about whether or not he and his boyfriend should hold hands in public over Thanksgiving. I felt my straight privilege slap me right across my face; I held my boyfriend’s hand constantly when we were together and I never thought about it once, or kissing him in a crowded park. When I asked my friend what he thought might happen, he said, “Maybe nothing, or maybe someone yells something, or maybe five dudes beat me to death in the parking lot.”
My head is still kind of spinning over that. It’s fucking 2013. He shouldn’t be afraid to hold his boyfriends hand in Evansville, Indiana. Fuck!
Welp, I started crying during sex because I realized I had missed my totally arbitrary midnight deadline.
I think I’m overwhelmed at my new job.
It’s been really fun to do other people’s work for them while getting almost no direction on projects until after the fact. But then also expected to fix a disastrously neglected and disorganized digital product AND completely redo the print product and you have one month GO.
I may hang myself by Christmas.
Other news: My bf is way too caring, considerate, and gracious for me to even deal. I’m super lucky on that end.
"It doesn’t lessen you to give someone else pleasure. It doesn’t degrade you to have some of your own. And anyone who implies otherwise is a man who probably thinks very poorly of women underneath the surface."
“When it comes to women, they don’t get rights. They get restrictions… I have five daughters and eight granddaughters, and the one thing I worry about more than anything else is their health. I like to see their happy faces. I like to see them feeling good… So I want them to have doctors making decisions, not some employer who has a self-righteous moral view that he wants to impose on my daughter, my granddaughter, my wife. Nuh uh. On our side of the aisle, we believe that women are capable of making their own healthcare decisions.”—Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), is a man who trusts women. Lautenberg made these comments at today’s hearing on the Blunt Amendment. (via menwhotrustwomen)
