The Life and Times of a Super Queer Kid

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “Find your passion” and “Know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.

Dear God,
I don’t say thank You enough.
I am grateful for all the beautiful things happening in my life right now.
Things change.
Fresh wind… at the time I needed it most, to restore and refresh me.
Thank You.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Anonymous asked: So ideally how would you like the world to be? Who'd be in power? If anyone

You must be white.  Always going back to this assumption that someone/some group MUST have power over others even in an “ideal” world.  Benevolent power holder(s) is an illusion made by those with power so that they can absolve themselves of guilt at the inherent inequality they benefit from.

They did say “if anyone.” They never said that there absolutely had to be someone in power. I’m sure I’ll get hate for this, but I’m just pointing out that people are mad about something that wasn’t said at all.

Really? Like you can’t read that the “if anyone” is clearly an after thought?  That the presumption of someone in power is STILL FUCKING THERE if you have to ask that sort of question to begin with?  And I wasn’t mad about anything, just pointing out shit about power dynamics and the tendency for white people to imagine ideal worlds that still have power imbalances, but funny that you thought I was mad in my reply.  Talk about reading shit that wasn’t there.
