I hate how online queer exclusionist have pushed that the bi and pan labels are "at war" with each other, as well as the folks within both communities, to the point to were it has become inconceivable that someone could be both bi and pan. Like the very thought of someone using both labels, especially equally and with no preference for one or the other, is something never really talked about, considered, or thought of as real.
Like as someone who's bi, pan, and omni, the very notion that I have to consider one of those identities either as "more inclusive" than the other or "better", just makes my blood boil. No really cause I'm very proud of the fact that I use multiple mspec labels and I love them all, I really REALLY do! And I would appreciate it if folks like me weren't erased constantly from conversations surrounding mspec labels. Like bi people who use the pan label exist, pan folks who use the bi label exist, and folks who use neither of those labels but use other mspec labels to describe themselves exist and so do folks who use bi, pan, omni, and ply to describe themselves!
Also you can very well be unlabeled and mspec or just use the mspec label in general to describe yourself! And people do all of these things for very different reasons, which shouldn't be challenged or questioned! Stop instigating into why mspec people use the labels that we do, or don't use certain labels at all! Literally none of those labels "inherently contradict" each other by merely existing, also some folks belong to multiple mspec communities while some are just simply unlabeled. Mspecphobia comes in many forms and neglecting/erasing folks who use multiple mspec labels or none is just one example of many out there!

You can be proud of being queer and still be closeted. Ashamed isn't the same as afraid.

Pride month’s here so I wanted to finally make some more pride art again.
Here’s part 1 of the pride brushes! It’s a simple design but they came out much nicer than I expected.
You can find all the designs right over on Redbubble (and over on Society6 soon enough as well)!
I’ll be posting part 2 very soon as well as some more pride art.
Happy pride month to you guys!

I find it so funny that so many of us will go out of our way to make sure we look gay,,,, like the worst thing to us is having someone assume we're straight

Queer folks are not obligated to acknowledge their identity being seen as a ‘slur’ by other people.
Queer folks are not obligated to ‘use another term’ for their identity when the whole point of using queer is for their own comfort with their identity.
Queer folks are not obligated to tag their identity or censor their identity for people who don’t even know them and who clearly don’t have enough common sense to simply blacklist the term and not follow explicitly queer blogs.
Queer folks are vast and diverse in how we experience and express our identity(ies), so none of us are obligated to whittle ourselves down to just one or two labels to make it ‘easy’ for others to tell if we ‘belong’ in certain spaces.
The whole reason why I use queer as my identity is because I refuse to let other people determine who I am for me based on their own (biased and limited) assumptions, especially other LGBTQ+ folks who seem to constantly forget that the cisheteronormative society we currently live in doesn’t give a damn about the intricacies within our community.
They don’t care if you (in general) prefer to call yourself gay over queer, or lesbian over sapphic, or bisexual over pansexual, or whatever. They only give a damn about the fact that you aren’t cishet and whether or not you’re going to be open about it. That’s it.
So all this hootin’ and hollerin’ that y’all have been doing lately, and sometimes even for years, about excluding the ‘undesirable’ folks (we all know I’m talking about queer/ace/aro/demi/pan/MOGAI folks) who y’all don’t even talk to or try to meet halfway, without being pretentious and condescending towards them when they try to tell you about their experiences, is the primary reason why we can’t really come together as a real community.
Y’all are so hung up on other folks not having the same ‘gay awakening’ as you or y’all are goaded into being embarrassed about having identified with ‘MOGAI’ (which is literally just another acronym that was created for the LGBTQ+ community) labels and automatically assume that y’all were ‘missing out’ on some sort of ‘authentic’ lgbtq+ experience because it took you a little while to find the right label for yourself. That’s not what happened lol what you went through is called ‘a journey’ or ‘growth’ because it’s something that ALL of us go through as human beings. You’re not always going to be right about your identity and even then, it isn’t about your identity being ‘right’. It’s about you finding peace within yourself once you do (if you ever) find out what the right label is for you.
All this tells me is that y’all care so much more about how labels look than y’all do about how they function on an individual level and refuse to acknowledge that it is still 100% possible to find common ground with folks who aren’t like you (and who will never be like you). Y’all are so ready to tear off someone’s head for having a different understanding of their identity and how it may intersect with other things in their life but won’t even put that SAME ENERGY towards calling out actual cishets for their systemic levels of homo/transphobia.
So, no…queer folks who have been constantly heckled by tumblr and Twitter ‘discoursers’ and the like are not obligated to give up on their identity for anyone, including other lgbtq+ folks.
Gender/sexuality/attraction based labels do not exist for y’all to dictate who belongs in your special ‘gay and/or trans’ gossip club. They exist for folks to use as a way to describe a specific experience or way of expressing themselves, first and foremost.
I get that so many of us have it in our minds that labels are supposed to be used to identify with other folks who you can share experiences with but by continuing to keep that mentality, with no added nuance or growth regarding how vast our community actually is, all you’re doing is creating a smaller and more isolated version of this ‘ideal’ community where you don’t put in any effort to see from other perspectives except those that line up with your own.
Y’all are doing yourselves a huge disservice by continuing to reinforce these silly ass ‘exclusive’ ways of thinking and I can only hope that some of y’all grow out of it and genuinely start to engage with and appreciate folks in the community who are completely different from you.

Omni people are often forgotten when it comes to Pride posts, and it sucks because omnisexuals and omniromantics are truly great people! They're important and vital members of the community and should get way more recognition than they are now. Not to mention they deserve lots of love and acceptance as well! To every omni person, you are genuinely outstanding, and I love you so, so much!

These few days of pride and multisexual visibility are likely to invite far too many questions for our multisexual friends, loves, families, homies.
This is a quick and easy (though neither perfect nor exhaustive) beginner guide to the general idea behind multisexual orientations.
Show it to the people who insist on asking the questions without doing the research on their own.

~image description below~
[Image Description: A single square image with a black background. All text except for the watermark is bold, in lowercase letters and centered. At the top of the image, big white text reads “multisexuality: a guide.” In the bottom right corner is the “@polyamproud” watermark in white. Beside the watermark is the polycule symbol in white. Taking up most of the image is a Venn diagram with four overlapping circles. Near the middle of the diagram is another “@polyamproud” watermark in black at a lower opacity.
The top left circle is rose pink and has black text which reads “polysexual” in it, beneath the text is the polycule symbol with the polysexual pride flag in it. The top right circle is white and has black text which reads “pansexual” in it, beneath the text is the polycule symbol with the pansexual pride flag in it. The bottom left circle is azalea pink and has black text which reads “bisexual” in it, beneath the text is the polycule symbol with the bisexual pride flag in it. The bottom right circle is tutu pink and has black text which reads “omnisexual” in it, beneath the text is the polycule symbol with the omnisexual pride flag in it.
The overlapping area between the “polysexual” and “pansexual” circle is vanilla ice pink and has black text in it which reads “attracted”, immediately followed by italicized black text which reads “more”, immediately followed by black text which reads “to the person than the gender.”
The overlapping area between the “polysexual” and “bisexual” circle is beauty bush pink and has italicized black text in it which reads “might”, immediately followed by black text which reads “not be attracted to all genders.”
The overlapping area between the “pansexual” and “omnisexual” circle is rose white and has black text which reads “finds all genders attractive.”
The overlapping area between the “bisexual” and “omnisexual” circle is coral candy pink and has black text which reads “finds masculinity/femininity/androgyny attractive in different ways.”
The middle of the ven diagram, where all the circles overlap with one another is pale pink and had black text which reads “attracted to more than one gender.”
