So i’m leaving for this thing in half and hour and like… i’m having a panic attack at the thought of meeting up to 20 people I don’t know for the first time without anyone I do know there.

How come I’m fine with job interviews, fine with meeting people in a job capacity, be it customers, colleagues, or clients or whatever! But social thing? Well fuck lets have us a full blown panic attack with chest pains, nausea, and this weird ass empty stomach feeling.

You know how you hear stories of dogs keeping their owners alive for weeks after having a stroke or running for miles to get help if their owners are hurt in the wild, I accidentally knocked my wheelchair away while sitting on the couch and had to slide across the floor on a cushion before climbing back in, Rico not only didn’t help but howled at me while i was doing it because i wasn’t paying attention to him.

i can’t get over how sad and funny it is when you see a teenage boy being real snotty about what he finds sexually attractive like oh no he doesn’t like bright lipstick and gladiator sandals make you look like a whore 

like buddy sorry you are not some kind of sexual wine connoisseur you are sixteen and would probably fuck a grapefruit

I think about this post a lot.

passive aggressive family members

"guess i’ll never be a grandma"

"guess i’ll never be an aunt"

"guess i’ll never be able to dress a niece/nephew"

stop feeling so entitled to my hypothetical offspring. it is not yours. it is mine. i will grow it if i grow it. and it will be mine. not yours. i am not an incubator which grants you familial titles. jesus. go away. this “have a baby i can play with” thing is so impersonal and insensitive and annoying.

stop wanting equality if you keep singling yourself out

"LOOK I’M GAY! I’M LESBIAN! I’M TRANS! I’M QUEER! LOOK! LOOOOOKK ATAAT MEEEEE!!!!!!!!"

shut the fuck up, no one cares unless they’re romantically pursuing you.

Gay? Cool, doesn’t make you any different from everyone else.

Trans? cool, doesn’t make you any special either.

We will not treat you differently if you do not act differently.

It’s like you didn’t even read the post at all. Just…just amazing. 

First of all: visibility and solidarity are not “singling ourselves out.” We are often ALREADY singled out- bullied, marginalized, erased, if we DARE to come out of the closet. 

Coming out of the closet- openly and proudly, is not some cry for attention, but an act of affirmation and empowerment, an act of self preservation and autonomy in the face of some very intense discrimination on a societal level. 

What I find to be the MOST interesting comment here is your last one. We will not treat you differently if you do not act differently.” 

You see, Eric Liu in his book “Accidental Asian, Notes of a Native Speaker” talks about the concept of “Passing” and “Covering.” He describes a certain…middle ground between outright marginalization and actual acceptance- the demands to “pass” for normal. This idea is that minorities and those that are “othered” by our culture will only be treated well if we PRETEND that we aren’ different- if we “cover” our differences up and “pass” for “normal”. You can be different as long as you don’t ACT different.

That is a very shitty form of bigotry, because it is bigotry that masks itself as “reasonable.” 

But listen up and listen well: if your treatment of other human beings is dependent on whether or not they “ACT DIFFERENT” then you are straight up, 100% a fucking bigot.
