Just saw a post abt lgbt city folk supporting rural lgbt kids that started with ‘listen up queers’ and I think that is the funniest fucking thing ever. I, a man who was spent half of my childhood in the rural south and bc of that hates the word, and the lgbt kids in my town who were called dirty queers and saw a gay kid beaten to death in 6th year, were just called ‘queers’ in the same breath as saying we need unique support from the community fhcjfjdjshshs

increasing gay/bi/trans/queer visibility & acceptance will naturally lead to more people coming out, and to more teens identifying as queer. because:
it’s safer 
it’s a real option 
they know there are other people like them 
they know their identity exists
they have a name to put to their internal experiences
and anyone who is worried this will “turn their kids gay,” actually means “my kids won’t be forced, by fear and terror, to closet themselves.” 
and they see this as a bad thing.

now that it’s all over, i gotta say how incredible and bitterly hilarious it is that not even greed is stronger than homophobia.
like, people love misha collins. people love castiel. when they killed cas off in s7, viewership dropped by thirty percent and they had to scramble to rewrite him back into the show - and he’s only gotten more popular since then. at spn conventions, they have two costume competitions - one for castiel cosplayers, and one for everyone else. there are only a fraction of sam and dean costumes compared to cas costumes. misha is, as far as i know, the only cast member to do photo ops as his character - he puts on the suit and coat and takes pictures with fans while behaving like cas. people love it.
and people love destiel. it’s one of the biggest ships on the fucking planet. it has 90k+ fics on ao3. you can find destiel merch just about anywhere. after 15x18, destiel trended online over the presidential election. 
a ton of people tuned into the finale just on the hope that cas/misha would return, that they’d been lied to when it was said 15x18 was his last episode. if they had teased a clip of cas coming back - forget that, if they had teased a clip of a kiss? millions of people would have tuned in to see it happen. people who’d never watched the show and never would have watched the finale would have watched. sure, they would have faced some blowback from the conservative fans, but that wouldn’t have mattered after the finale.
and if they had embraced cas and embraced destiel, they could have milked that cash cow for years. they could have marketed to the entire queer community, they could have patted themselves on the back and “proven” they were never queerbaiting at all. they could have grown the fandom instead of shrinking it. the money-making opportunities on cas and destiel are practically limitless.
instead, they fucked over not only cas fans and destiel fans, but dean fans and sam fans; i’m not in w*ncest and bronly circles, but i can’t imagine even they enjoyed this, considering sam just moved on with his life after dean died and they were separated for 50 years. people are utterly furious. there’s a real chance that this fandom is going to completely implode, game of thrones style, and nobody will want to go to cons or buy spn merch anymore. it could have been cool to like spn, now it’s more embarrassing than ever before.
and all that because some dudes out there were like, i hate the idea of two men kissing more than i love piles of money. that’s fucking wild.

to everyone who will be going home to hatred and bigotry today: i see you. to every lesbian who will be asked about when she'll find a man, to every bisexual person facing slurs at home, to every trans person who must put on the wrong clothes and respond to the wrong name: i see you. the holidays can be a deeply painful time for members of the lgbtq community but know that you are not alone. i see you, the community sees you, and together we can get through this knowing that when we are with each other we are loved.

"At first I did not question anything Gerald [Gardner] told me about what he claimed to be the traditional teachings of the Old Religion. Eventually however, I did begin to question, and began to ask how much was traditional and how much was simply Gerald's prejudices. For instance, he was very much against people of the same sex working together, especially if they were gay. In fact he went so far as to describe gay people as being "cursed by the Goddess." Well I see no good reason to believe this. In every period of history, in every country in the world there have been gay people, both men and women. So why shouldn't Mother Nature have known what she was doing when she made people this way? I don't agree with this prejudice against gay people, either inside the craft of the wise or outside it....
Another teaching of Gerald's which I have come to question is the belief known popularly as 'the Law of Three'. This tells us that whatever you send out in Witchcraft you get back threefold, for good or ill. Well, I don't believe it! Why should we believe that there is a special Law of Karma that applies only to witches? For Goddess' sake do we really kid ourselves that we are that important?
Yet I am told many people, especially in the USA, take this as an article of faith. I have never seen it in any of the old books of magic, and I think Gerald invented it."
-Doreen Valiente, in her last address to the National Conference of the Pagan Federation, 1997, quoted in Missing Witches: Recovering True Histories of Feminist Magic by Risa Dickens and Amy Torok (p.24-5)
I respect one (1) Wiccan.

I've been thinking a lot about the impact that these anti-trans bills are going to have. Trans kids will be affected the most, for certain. But so will everyone else. What are cis kids going to learn and internalize from these situations?
~
Cis kids are actively being taught that their trans classmates are lesser, should be excluded, and are a threat to them. That alone is sick.
But at the same time, these anti-trans laws are teaching cis kids a lot about their own gender and assigned sex.
What must it be like to be a cis girl right now? To be told that you can never truly compete with your male classmates because you are inherently biologically weaker? To be told that you will always be at a disadvantage because of your assigned sex?
What must it be like to be a cis girl student athlete right now, seeing that the majority of public discussion about girls sports is not actually about girls sports because of their own value and importance--but about anti-trans laws?
At the same time, cis boys are being taught that their cis girl classmates are not as strong as they are and are less capable athletes. They're being taught that "boys" are stealing scholarships from girls--implying that girls are held to lower standards of performance than boys are. How will this impact the ways that cis boys think of and interact with their cis girl peers?
How is this NOT reinforcing sexism and patriarchal beliefs about sex and gender?
~
It's also going to be interesting to see how the move to ban access to transition related health care impacts not only trans people--but cis people.
One of Arkansas's newest anti-trans laws allows medical professionals to deny certain services to patients if providing that service would conflict with their moral, ethical, or religious beliefs; the same law also applies to health insurers, allowing them to deny coverage for certain services.
A pediatrician wouldn't have to prescribe puberty blockers to a trans child, a doctor wouldn't have to provide a referral to an endocrinologist for a trans person to seek hormone therapy, a health insurer would not have to cover transition related surgeries, and so on.
But do you really think a pharmacist who would refuse to fill an estrogen prescription for a trans woman based on their personal religious beliefs wouldn't also refuse to fill a birth control prescription for a cis woman?
That a religiously affiliated hospital which would deny a trans man a hysterectomy wouldn't also refuse to allow a cis woman to have a tubal ligation after childbirth?
That the same laws which allow health insurance companies to deny coverage for gender affirming health care services based upon religious objections won't also be used to defend refusing coverage for birth control?
Stripping bodily autonomy from ANYONE is a serious problem and a violation of human rights. Every single one of these anti-trans healthcare laws will open the door for further restricting the bodily autonomy and human rights of minorities in the future.
Republicans know this--they know exactly what they are doing by pushing transphobia as an issue of religious freedom and by pushing the "think of the children" tactic. There is a reason that one of Arkansas's anti-trans bills' is titled the "Save Adolescents From Experimentation Act", while South Carolina introduced a similar bill a short time ago called the "Minor Child Compassion and Protection Act".
Republicans are experts at this shit: they've been fighting for decades to restrict abortion rights to save "innocent unborn babies", to prevent marriage equality in order to defend "Christian rights" and "religious freedom", to prevent lesbians and gay men from adopting and fostering children to protect children from the imaginary "child abuse" of having same gender parents because "every child deserves a mother and father".
Oppressing minorities to privilege Christian conservative beliefs is the name of the game. Do y'all really believe that Republicans are suddenly wildly supportive of girls and womens sports--or have they simply spotted an opportunity to further marginalize trans people, uphold traditional binary sex roles, strip away the right to bodily autonomy, and further their agenda to pass laws that allow discrimination based on Christian religious beliefs?
It's ridiculous to me to think that the radical feminists cheering these bills on don't understand how allowing medical professionals the power to discriminate will also harm cis women. And if you think that openly and visibily lesbian, bisexual, and queer cis women won't be among those harmed by transphobic laws, I am certain you are wrong.
~
Transphobia hurts everyone. Patriarchy hurts everyone. Biological essentialism hurts everyone. Trans people, especially trans kids, will suffer the most. But cis people will not be unaffected. Fighting to maintain cis supremacy and the binary gender system will not come without a cost--for everyone.

that fly on pence’s head was a lovely egg in this trying time but don’t let it distract us from the fact that the president and vice president would not commit to a peaceful transfer of power, could not condemn white supremacists, denied the existence of climate change, are calling for their political opponents to be imprisoned, have let 210,000+ americans die of COVID, will not consider any further economic relief until after the election, and that the vice president wants to electrocute gay children to death. ahah.

This particular topic has been on my mind a lot as of late, and I've finally decided to verbalise it
Let me start this by saying that I know that everyone is free to write what they like when it comes to fanfic, they're simply sharing their passion and not doing it for profit etc, and everyone is free to enjoy and produce whatever content pleases them
Second, I am not trying to make myself a spokesperson or speak on behalf of anyone, this is simply my opinion and my observations
The only reason I'm even writing this is that the TOG fandom has been incredibly welcoming and kind, or at least the side of it that I stumbled upon when I first searched that tag after watching the movie
So what I wanted to specifically discuss is Modern Au, it's my favourite alternative take on the characters and if you look at my reading history on my Ao3 you'll have enough proof. However, something that stops me from enjoying that Au is how people treat Joe in it, or specifically, Joe's relationship with family and religion
A lot if not most of those Au have Joe as Tunisian, or if they don't specify, from the Maghreb region, a place that is overwhelmingly Muslim. And what those fics do, is that they have Joe's family be INCREDIBLY ACCEPTING of his sexuality, while ALSO saying things like his mother and/or sisters are hijabis and that he prays on time etc, which in turn makes them an incredibly religious family, and it just causes me a lot of headaches.
I do realize that a lot of people want to omit homophobia from their fictional words and that's all fine and dandy, but when I look at the majority of Modern Au fics, I don't see Nicky treated the same way. See, Nicky gets to have an accepting family sometimes yes, or they can be indifferent and refuse to acknowledge the situation, and they can even be openly hateful and from what I've seen, all the situations seem to be represented equally l. Joe doesn't get that.
Guys, people are incredibly homophobic in the Maghreb, it's terrifying, LGBTQ+ activists, the few brave ones who dare to show their face and talk about the issues are viciously mocked by the media and the population and receive countless threats, we have no words in our language with which to refer to our sexuality and gender that aren't slurs, we had to event ones and even then we're still struggling because our language is gendered. If someone is suspected of homosexual activity, they risk Jail, where they'll probably be beaten (or worse) should the reason of their sentence be revealed .
Yea I understand that Islam is a very sensitive topic to approach, especially by non Muslim people and fans, but just like you are willing to do research to talk about Nicky's situation, or to try and be as historically accurate in your non Modern fics, you can extend the same courtesy to Joe. He's a incredibly complex character that deserves to have all his angles explored. And if you're scared of not representing him well, you can ask other TOG fans who are from the Maghreb or Muslim and you can research and accept feedback from them.
I'm personally open to DMs, and you can ask me about the religious outlook on homosexuality, you can ask me for translations in both Arabic and Derja, and you can discuss ideas with me, and I'm sure other people will be open for this too!
I do not know if any of this made sense to anyone but it's been bothering me for ages and I needed to let it out.
And let me finish by saying that I enjoy fics where Joe's family is accepting of him, god knows how much I wish my family was like that and how much joy I get from living through him, I just don't want it to be the only way his story is told, if you understand me .

can I just say those jokes where straight characters get made fun of (or make fun of themselves) for "seeming" gay...those jokes aren't harmless or non-homophobic just bc the character in question isn't actually gay. homosexuality--and the idea that it is undesirable or cringey to be perceived as such--is still the punchline.
making a straight character the target of a homophobic joke doesn't make the joke less homophobic--just more palatable to straight people who still want to laugh at queerness as a concept
tldr "no gays were harmed in the making of this joke" yes, we were

and before destiel/cas/misha haters say anything, this isn’t about my stupid ship or even my stupid tv show. this is my fucking life as a lesbian, and for these actors to act as if platonic, universal love is in any way more radical or liberating than gay love is horrendous and yes, homophobic. not to mention they are comparing gayness to genitalia, comparing gayness to humanity. to say that gayness only extends to humans is exactly the same bullshit that leads to people saying it isn’t natural.
