bisexual people passing as straight when they’re in a straight relationship is not “passing privilege.” it’s erasure. it’s assimilation. 

that’s like saying that femme lesbians have privilege over butch lesbians. invisibility might keep people safer on a micro-level which is fucked up, but it’s all based on people thinking they can tell who’s queer & who’s straight just by looking at them, which is infinitely problematic and painful.

don’t alienate queer people who are assumed to be straight. invisibility is a symptom of hetero-normativity, not a privilege. 

I have learned that when sadness comes to visit me, all I can do is say “I see you.” I spend some time with it, get up, and say goodbye.
I don’t push it away, I own it.
And because I own it, I let it go.

Libraries tend to become more cozy, relaxing and communicative places. Other than public spaces like museums, they have a certain private character, which makes them a living room for their community.

Maryland has come up trumps as 18th state to ban discrimination against transgender people. Congrats! Let’s make this worldwide!

"This is an important group of people today who frankly we left out 11 years ago." 

"But detractors expressed concerns that the measure could potentially be abused by sexual predators seeking to prey on women and children in public restrooms. Some even dubbed it the “bathroom bill.”"
Huh. Conservatives using “man in a dress” arguments… Didn’t know they were so ~radical~.
Almost like these exact arguments are used to try to limit our rights. Go figure.

Em: S, handle your underpants on the floor of the bathroom, please.

S: Oh, no! Sorry. I forgot about those. Sorry, sorry.

Em: It's ok. It's just that I've never seen dudes' underpants before and my innocence is ruined and gone forever, it's ok.

S: Bullshit. You don't have any innocence and sometimes I think I'm the only one in his house that knows it.

We desire breakfast…at 9pm.

Ladies and gentlemen and those of you for whom the binary is restrictive or otherwise inaccurate: Library School.

Or: Man did I ever pick the wrong night to stay home…
