I'm a person who has strong feelings about the world. This is my personal blog where I write about my thoughts on love, humor, the world, and everything else I think to talk about. Politics, racism, cissexism, and every other sort of 'social justice' will go here as well. I'm white, bisexual, genderqueer, pro-choice, and I'm sure a lot of other things that I don't have the room to list here.
[Image description: a Twitter update from a user whose name is illegible. The update reads, “People are homophobic, and they’re assholes about it. That’s not right, but being an asshole to those people won’t help either.”
If someone protests your right to exist, you shouldn’t just smile and nod and tell them it’s ok, you respect their right to disagree with your RIGHT TO EXIST.
I don’t act poorly to those who don’t treat me like shit, but the simple act of being homophobic is treating me like shit and telling me that I am unsafe around them. I will fight back and let them know EXACTLY where I stand.
My silence could cost me something much higher than someone who might get their feelings hurt by me being an ‘asshole’ to them.
