Why are you against Heterosexuality?

skysquids:

because heterosexuality goes against human nature.  it is a system that coerces people into denying their sexuality at the expense of human happiness and human lives.  look, heterosexuals wouldn’t even talk about homosexuality as though its a sin unless they felt ‘tempted’ or whatever - meaning that even as they preach against it they reveal that its a part of them too.

its not that i’m against women fucking men - i’m a woman who fucks men - its that i’m against a system that demands, with violence and cruelty, that women ONLY fuck men.

like, can you imagine people isolating you, calling you names, assaulting you physically, assaulting you sexually, telling you you deserve to be tortured forever, harassing you, fucking with you legally, driving your friends to kill themselves, ect, ect, ect.  throughout your life and today.  all in the name of heterosexuality.  and then you make a joke about it and someone asks you in all seriousness why you don’t like heterosexuality.

most people i talk to in my life who don’t already have this exact experience can at least understand where i’m coming from - either because they’ve experienced similar or worse things, or because they have empathy.  so anon, why are you having such a hard time with this?

Isn't that heteronormativity though? As opposed to heterosexuality?

i don’t really see the point in delineating.  heterosexuality as an identity requires a system of cultural support.  that system requires queer people being treated like garbage.  i don’t think the identity would make any sense outside of that context.

Stealing Our Humanity

I’ll be straight up: I could not care less about the looting in Ferguson. More specifically, I could not care less about the opinions of those who self-righteously condemn the looting without even the slightest understanding of logical argument, much less historical context. The hyperfocus on the issue from mostly white, mostly conservative corners of the internet is the latest iteration in a very entrenched tradition of goalpost moving whenever the issue of anti-blackness in America emerges. It is literally the “look, there’s a bird over there!” of political discourse. Let’s say you have a bone fracture. If you went to the doctor to get the fracture treated and she spent more time haranguing you for your choice in footwear (“Crocs?! Eww!”) than addressing your broken foot that’s now swollen to moon boot size, I think it’s fair to say that you’d be pretty fucking frustrated. Now imagine that a few million doctors are doing the same thing all at once, except there’s not a single day of med school between them, much less specialized training to address foot fractures. That is exactly what dealing with riot naysayers is like. The pace at which they moved the conversation from unjustified killing to opportunistic looting is comical. “They were just waiting for the chance to loot!” is a common rallying cry - never mind the fact that nothing like this has happened in Ferguson in decades, if ever

I could not care less about the looting in Ferguson. The same naysayers prioritize the destruction of property over the destruction of black life. That’s not terribly surprising, considering the fact that America was founded on the assumption that the two are one and the same. The naysayers of yesterday committed self-genocide in an attempt to keep things that way. The naysayers of today expect a group that has dealt with the aftereffects of redlining, white flight, and frequent police overreach in their communities for decades to respond to violence - physical, financial, and mental - with koombayas and peaceful demonstrations. They demand perfect victims. Even one blemish, be it in Mike Brown’s past or on a single tactic deployed by the protesters - is enough to discredit the entire movement. Enough to justify the bigotry that existed within the hearts of the white right wing prior to all this and will continue to exist long after all this. Enough to justify the execution of Brown. It doesn’t matter that protesters were fighting off the looters, or that said looters made up a tiny portion of the protest in the first place. It certainly doesn’t matter to them that Brown ostensibly surrendered and posed no threat to Officer Wilson before meeting his end. To these conservatives, black lives cease to matter the moment white property is in jeopardy. Brown stole* some cigarillos. And so it goes.

I could not care less about the looting in Ferguson, because it’s horrendously clear that the Ferguson police department could not care less about the lives that were and are at stake. Officer Wilson was unaware of Brown’s robbery - only that he was a black kid in Ferguson and ergo up to no good. He quite likely provoked an interaction, giving himself pretext to execute a kid (and yes, being just barely 18 makes one a fucking kid; I reject the literal and rhetorical stealing of black childhood just as much as the stealing of other facets of black humanity). Wilson did not call in the shooting. He, along with the Ferguson PD allowed Brown’s body to rot in the street for hours. No aid. No ambulance. No attempt at saving this black man’s life. Instead, the Ferguson police obfuscated their way through the week(end), against on-site press and autopsy inquiry alike. You know who does sympathize with the police response, though? Yep, the trusty stewards of the white right

I could not care less about the looting in Ferguson. Trust me, QuikTrip will live to see another day. They pulled in $11.2 billion last year. That is higher than the GDP of Haiti for the same year. Yes, the same Haiti that also had to revolt in order to retake their humanity. Haiti has about 10 million people to QuikTrip’s ~17,000 employees. Convenience stores have insurance policies and 99.9% of all items found in said stores are fungible. There was, by contrast, only one Mike Brown. One Rekia Boyd. One Oscar Grant. They are gone forever. Glass doesn’t bleed and cheerios don’t have feelings, yet the shattering of one and the theft of the other seem to register far more with the white right than the shattering of communities and the theft of black humanity.

That moment you realize Vin Diesel was secretly a huge nerd this whole time

That moment for me was when I found out he’d play Dungeons & Dragons on the TCOR set with Karl Urban and Judi Dench.

If you didn’t realize Vin Diesel was a huge nerd, obviously you’ve never watched any of the “making of” footage to any of the Riddick films.  Bae nerds hard.

Vin Diesel has a tattoo that says MORGOTH. Indirectly after the Lord of the Rings’ Satan and directly after his Chaotic Evil Wizard from his high school D&D campaign.

this is now a vin diesel appreciation blog.

yo so im a cis girl are u cool with me following u or do you want me to unfollow you?

sure, you can follow me.  i follow lots of cis women as well.  for most of my life, my friends have been bad ass queer women.  women have supported me and i’ve supported them.  until recently, all those women were cis women.  i’m so glad that i now know and surround myself with other trans women, but i have been lucky enough to have the most brilliant and amazing cis women support and care for me.  i want solidarity with all women.  <3
