gay shit ive done that i thought was 100% straight before i realized: a biography
tried to explain to my straight friends that girls are just objectively more attractive than guys. like objectively.
and being convinced that they were lying to me when they disagreed and said they were attracted to men
didn’t understand why breakups were such a big deal. “if he doesn’t give you enough attention just leave him.” “well at least now you have more time for yourself!” “well you still have me :)”
avoided watching lingerie or swimsuit commercials and had my eyes glued to the floor in locker rooms because obviously i’m not gay. like look at how not gay i am
“yeah sometimes i want people to look at me and wonder wtf i am”
got happy chemicals when people thought i was with my female friend
thought that bi girls and lesbians were the coolest fuckin people ever
female characters who didn’t want a relationship with a man and had their own independent storylines were my favorites
stopped watching shows if the characters randomly got paired up in het relationships
got super excited “for no reason” whenever i read a book with gay rep
“i want to look goth and lethal and have a sword but i also want to be a fairy and look like the embodiment of a claire’s store”
“i wish i was a boy because girls are so pretty and i don’t want to have to be with a boy”
never wanted to get married or have kids
felt super uncomfortable whenever a man would show any interest in me
“obviously ⏳ is more attractive than🚪”
but all sizes and shapes of girls are cute
sweaters, flannels, boots and beanies are not seasonal, they are year-long clothing items for all weather. even if it’s 108 degrees and humid
handpicked boys to have a crush on
“these are the men i’m attracted to” (insert queer-coded fictional character with feminine characteristics)
“who do you have a crush on?” “no one” “aw are you embarrassed to tell us?” 😐
any man who has ever been nice to me i must have a crush on now. that’s the rules.
i think i like him but i have to convince myself really hard that i do and the second he reciprocates fondness i no longer like him. i’m probably just picky
“he’s sweet, he’s funny, his face is symmetrical, and he’s smart but not in a show-off way… why don’t i like him?”
“look at all these other girls being boy-crazy. SOO GLAD i’m not like that :P”
other gays/queer people feel free to add on (although this is primarily for sapphics (and aspecs))

An Entertaining Introduction to Drag
There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the relationship between trans and drag. 
Some say that drag artists are not trans, they are “only” performers. 
Others argues strongly that drag is a clear expression of gender variance, and since transgender is an umbrella term for all kinds of  gender variance, all drag artists must be trans.
To me this disagreement is proof of our language being to poor and restrictive to capture the totality of gender.
Yes, many drag artists identify as their assigned gender, and that is fine.
Yes, many drag artists want to express another side of their gender identity and think of themselves as some shade of nonbinary.
And yes, many drag artists are identifying or will identify as their target gender and might even transition. That is also OK.
So drag is not an identity in the same way as cis or trans. It is a way of expressing and exploring gender through performance.
This video is from blairimani on Instagram, who writes:
While drag can sometimes reflect gender identity for some, drag itself is a performance of gender expression, not gender identity. Drag can often be weaponized against trans people, intending to invalidating their identities. Trans men are not "women in drag," trans women are not “men in drag." Trans men are men, trans women are women, and nonbinary people are nonbinary.

TERF Spotting 101: The Bio
This topic will be triggering to some transgender and nonbinary individuals, please do not read if you do not feel like you are able to. If you can read this, please do.
Disclaimer: This is meant to be used as a way to be able to keep yourself safe, do not go witch-hunting for TERFs because they aren't worth it, this is meant to make it easier to know who to block.
Common Words Used In Bios
TERF (obviously but still putting it here)
SWERF (they are always interconnected)

Rad Leaning
TradFem (associated with 1950s gender roles which is not inclusive of transgender people or people who break the binary)
FebFem (radical feminist term to describe bisexual women who exclusively date "females")
Gyn (radical feminist term for women, used because afab people need to go to gynecologists)
Gender-Free (not in a nonbinary way, but in a way that reduces people to their sex.)
Anti-Prostitution (this is another way to say Anti-Sex Work, another hallmark of someone being a TERF is hating sex workers, for some reason, aka SWERFs)
LGB (purposefully does not use the T)
Drop the T
Biological Woman
Woman (no pronouns - use discretion with this however some people may not know to add pronouns)

Support Black LGBTQ+ Fundraiser called The Toyin Project: #DoSomethingForMe
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Please support this fundraiser for 6 Black LGBTQ+ individuals. By donating if you can, the money is for anyone in need: homeless, medical bills, transition goals, mental health treatment, food, escaping abuse, etc. If you can’t donate, sharing helps! Please spread the word as much as possible because the more exposure, the better. 
The #DoSomethingForMe Grant Application is open! I am raising $600 for 6 Black LGBTQ+ individuals who are in need, as mentioned. Apply to be selected. Must be 18+, must have P*yp*l or C*sh *pp. It will be split evenly ($100 each) & if I raise more, it will still be split. Good luck!
For the grant, the fundraiser will be conducted on my ko-fi page. (Gofundme takes a cut and I didn’t want that). So when it’s time to send out the $100 donations to the 6 people I choose, I will post screenshots for transparency on my Twitter, which is @rauhling_bizzle!
About me:
My name is Bella, I’m a Black/Latina queer artist, self published poet and activist! I wrote the viral best seller Brown Clay that was on Barnes & Noble’s Top 100 Bestseller List! Consider donating to this cause and I’m super excited to give support to my loving community.

[Image description: A tumblr text post, edited blackout-poetry style. Resulting text is below.]
seeing many "m-spec lesbian" positivity posts so here's your friendly reminder that
bi/pan lesbians do exist.
"bi lesbians" are lesb bi.
lesbians is an umbrella term.
i didn't think these statements would ever be considered controversial but alas, here we are.

Today, the fields of queer and trans history are still in the process of finding ways to talk about gender and sexuality diversity among Native people in a way that is neither appropriative nor exotifying. Here I am trying to tell the story of Ozaawindib’s life, not as a way to show the myriad possibilities of gender and sexuality among “primitive” peoples, as some white queer writers have done. Nor am I telling her story so it can be used as a sort of precursor or opening scene which non-Native queer people can inherit after Native people seemingly vanish from the dominant narrative of history. I am sharing her story simply because it is an apt demonstration of how gender diverse Native people were important actors in North American history. Ozaawindib’s story reveals important historical realities of queer, trans, and/or Two-Spirit experiences in North America, especially relating to the process of colonization and the erasure of people who did not conform to the accepted dominant standards of gender and sexuality.[i] Both her story and its subsequent narrative fracturing are symptomatic of larger trends in the history of North American queer, trans, and Two-Spirit peoples.

Queer People 🤝 Neurodivergent People
Some people thinking that we only came into existence in the late 20th century CE despite clear historical evidence to the contrary.
