Things that I like, find amusing, beautiful, sad, basically anything and everything that I connect to.
Oh my god youre straight? I had no idea. You seem normal to me. Did you know that Sara is straight to? You two should totally hook up. I cant believe youre straight. You could be my straight best friend. We could go to football games together. Itll be so much fun. So like how long have you been straight? Youre whole life!? No way.
Let me just play devils advocate for a sec. If we had all grown up with homosexuality as a thing that wasn’t hidden or shunned or frowned upon in society (for stupid ass reasons), then we wouldn’t have those kind of initial reactions. If we grew up just knowing about it and accepting it right away, we wouldn’t treat homosexuality like this bizarre thing that should be acted differently around.
Now that I’m older, and have been around a largely lgbtq environment, I have different reactions to knowing/finding out someone’s sexual orientation. 1. I don’t particularly care. I’m just like “okay and that is who this person is moving on” 2. I definitely do not expect them to act any differently than they had already been before, just because I now know their sexual preference. 3. I have realized that the whole “gay best friend” thing is a stereotype and I’m not actually going to experience that, unless that is how that person already acted (refer to section 2)
So let’s just accept people for who they are and not try to make people feel bad for the things they say or do in ignorance. Enlighten them first. THEN if they have been informed and still choose to say stupid things, feel free to put them in their place.
How is sponge bob a sponge if everyone in his family are chocolate chip cookies
They’re not fucking cookies, they’re natural sponges. Oy vai.
It’s amazing that people will see a kid yelled at or manhandled by a parent and say “It’s not my business, you can’t tell someone how to raise their kid” but if someone lets their son wear a dress it’s a public discussion.
THIS IS VERY RELEVANT
SERIOUSLY. Can we stop judging people for the wrong reasons
so tumblr staff can mobilize for net neutrality but not for #JusticeForMikeBrown
Net Neutrality is kinda a bigger issue.
A bigger issue……than the murder of an innocent black kid……? Net neutrality is more important than unpunished murder? This is wild
Woah there kids. These are two separate issues. Net neutrality has an affect on Tumblr making it higher on the tumblr/Internet scale. But the murder of Mike Brown is a highly important issue in the actual world, where we should all be taking a stand and unifying to achieve justice and equality.
So let’s not start freaking out about two different things. That will not make either issue go away.
