Guess whose sexuality qualifies as dysfunctional under the definition in an academic article she read today!!

gay pride parade

lesbian gluttony parade

bisexual greed parade

trans wrath parade

questioning envy parade

ally sloth parade

asexual lust parade 

I’m totally up to throw a trans wrath parade

Do you not see the irony of having an asexual lust parade, though? ALL OF THESE ARE GOLD, PEOPLE

Hey I thought this might be useful on tumblr so:
    A theatre company in my town KW, Ontario, Canada is holding basically a Queer festival next September. If you have or want to write any monologues or short pieces of 10 minutes or less, you can send them to this email address:queertheatrekw@gmail.com. The only requirement on content is that it’s Queer.
    All pieces chosen will be performed as memorized performances by Queer actors from the community.
    The plan is to create an opportunity for Queer actors to play characters like themselves and Queer audience members to see characters like themselves on stage.
So even if you don’t live nearby, feel free to submit content. They’re looking for more submissions.

JUMPS UP AND DOWN DRAMATICALLY AND RIDICULOUSLY.

My lady partner person (god life’s complicated) is the mastermind behind this and I’m like hella fucking proud of her and it’s on tumblr and I wasn’t the one who put it there but like fuck! she’s superb and you can also make this superb and queer and oh my goodness.

"Queer doesn’t mean “don’t label me,” it means “I am naming myself.” It means “ask me more questions if you curious” and in the same breath means “fuck off.”"

just because coming out is brave, doesn’t mean being in the closet is cowardly. 

queer existence, queer survival is brave.

this is important

"Queerness, to me, is about far more than homosexual attraction. It’s about a willingness to see all other taboos broken down. Sure, many of us start on this path when we first feel “same sex” or “same gender” attraction (though what is sex? And what is gender? And does anyone really have the same sex or gender as anyone else?). But queerness doesn’t stop there.
This is a somewhat controversial stance, but to me queer means something completely different than “gay” or “lesbian” or “bisexual.” A queer person is usually someone who has come to a non-binary view of gender, who recognizes the validity of all trans identities, and who, given this understanding of infinite gender possibilities, finds it hard to define their sexuality any longer in a gender-based way. Queer people understand and support non-monogamy even if they do not engage in it themselves. They can grok being asexual or aromantic. (What does sex have to do with love, or love with sex, necessarily?) A queer can view promiscuous (protected) public bathhouse sex with strangers and complete abstinence as equally healthy.
Queers understand that people have different relationships to their bodies. We get what it means to be stone. We know what body dysphoria is about. We understand that not everyone likes to get touched the same way or to get touched at all. We realize that people with disabilities may have different sexual needs, and that people with survivor histories often have sexual triggers. We can negotiate safe and creative ways to be intimate with people with HIV/AIDs and other STIs.
Queers understand the range of power and sensation and the diversity of sexual dynamics. We are tops and bottoms, doms and subs, sadists and masochists and sadomasochists, versatiles and switches. We know what we like and don’t like in bed.
We embrace a wide range of relationship types. We can be partners, lovers, friends with benefits, platonic sweethearts, chosen family. We can have very different dynamics with different people, often all at once. We don’t expect one person to be able to fulfill all our diverse needs, fantasies and ideals indefinitely.
Because our views on relationships, sex, gender, love, bodies, and family are so unconventional, we are of necessity anti-assimilationist. Because under the kyriarchy we suffer, and watch the people we love suffering, we are political. Because we want to survive, we fight. We only want the freedom to be ourselves, love ourselves, love each other, and live together. Because we are routinely denied that, we are pissed.
Queer doesn’t mean “don’t label me,” it means “I am naming myself.” It means “ask me more questions if you curious” and in the same breath means “fuck off.”"

so every now and then I see a women and I think, hell yeah, I’d tap that,

but I’m not thinking it in a let-us-have-sexy-times way? more like a really pleased, hey! i am attracted to that lady! neat!

and I think it’s because I’ve always known I was attracted to male-presenting people, but the rest of it took longer to sort out? and I spent ages wondering if I was ~really~ bi, or if it was ~just a phase~ and all that other bullshit that people spew at bi folk and that I had managed to internalize.

so when I see a women and get that feeling of sexual or romantic attraction, even now I still get this little thrill of validation inside.

please tell me I’m not the only bi/pan/poly person who does this…?

You’re not the only one =)

If you don’t fit in with everybody else, and you come to the Queer community for support, you are coming home. Robert Frost says “Home is where when you go there, they have to take you in.”

We have to take you in. No one reaching out for support can be told they don’t deserve it. That they aren’t queer enough because they’re with a different-gender partner. That they are too queer because they embrace kink. That they are too fat, too masculine, too feminine, too androgenous, too asexual, not the right size shape color political affliation.

The entire basis of the queer community is this: people who are rejected from the mainstream due to their sexual/affectional orientation and/or gender presentation come together for mutual support.
