If I love you, is that a fact or a weapon?– Margaret Atwood (via writingsforwinter) Beloved, chose carefuly (via sadiiqsunra)
ellenicolesociosucio: growing up, i just picked a sex to be attracted to. then i just picked the default of what my gender expression was socially expected to date. then i realized that my attraction is based on a holistic person , not on gender identity, gender expression, biological assignment, or a concept of sexuality. so, then, i just picked whatever the fuck i felt was right, when i felt...

lovmehdearly: I went to see my neurologist this morning. BLAH! Didn’t hear what I wanted to, but that was to be expected. I have so many treatment options though I have it narrowed down to two. Dr. E told me that if I was his daughter that he would put me on Tysabri; no questions asked. That is the most… Hey Jessy, My name is Miah. I just saw your post about taking tysabri, and I want...

comingoutjournal: By Shura Lopez-Beale | from HuffPost Gay Voices Blog Dear Mom and Dad, I was filling out an application the other day. It asked me what I felt my greatest accomplishment thus far was.

queerequality: When I think about what left behind, from high school that is.. “Family,” “friends,” a fake life, I simply look in front of me, look at who I surround myself with now, and I laugh, because the people who were with me weren’t really with me. When I was a “pretty” young lady, a beautiful ‘girl,’…
Reasons why you should come out:
PSA: YOU CAN BE LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER, QUEER OR QUESTIONING & BE HAPPY. All this talk about national coming out day, right? But if you’re in the ol shabby closet, ask yourself why. Why are you hiding? From whom? From what? National Coming Out Day isn’t just some flaunty day gay people invented to piss straight bigots off. It’s a day of...

eastafrodite: If you don’t believe men have been cultured to think they can coerce and control women, then you obviously haven’t seen the way they act in bars/clubs when they assume a woman is drunk or alone.
I know my relationship with tumblr is a little lop-sided. I cheat on my tumblr with other social media, and I run through it whenever I’m bored. I guess it’s pretty much like conditional love, but I have some things on my chest that may sound redundant, but need to be heard. I know I’m preaching to the choir, because my tumblr is full of feminists & lesbians & activists....

verticalvest: Pansexuality isn’t “bisexuality but you are also attracted to trans* people”. Pansexuality is the attraction to all genders, even those outside of male and female. Also, it’s pretty much a terrible, horrible, awful idea to insinuate that trans*people are fundamentally… To be honest, when I first heard the term “pansexuality,” I immediately said to myself.. So...
