No Straight Pride: Why is there a Gay Pride?
Video here: [x]
This is important.
i was in the gay pride parade this year, it was so much fun :) and everyone was so amazing.
But why is he shirtless
Yesterday I got my letter to go ahead with a trans-related medical procedure.
To get my letter I had to sit down with a certified psychologist over multiple sessions & convince that cis professional that
a) I am sane enough to understand what I want & what the pros and cons of doing such a dramatic medical procedure are, AND
b) I really am suffering from DSM reference #302.85 and meet the WPATH Standards of Care criteria for the mental disorder that I am trying to obtain treatment for.
So that’s a hilarious little catch-22 that I’ve now successfully danced through.
While, it may be seen as frustrating to you, which i can completely comprehend how it would be, i think it’s not all a bad thing.
With the increasing spotlight on the trans community it’s not a terrible thing that there are various steps to take in getting such a procedure.
I think it’s the weed out the people who think that the new “trans-fad” is a new thing to pick up much like those very same people were “scene kids” a few years ago.
I understand it’s not a perfect analogy, and you personally are frustrated with your experience, but it’s a good process to make sure people fully understand and know what they are committing to before such a major surgery.
I have a deep hatred and disregard for respect of life for bro-y white cis boys with tribal tattoos who think it’s ok to fucking touch my arm as I walk down the street ignoring him and holding my girlfriend’s hand.
and of course he said “I like your hair” as his gross hand touched my perfect leather jacket. Because it’s the first thing that makes me look like a huge fucking queer. And he wasn’t ok with the fact that a girl was looking sharp as fuck and being an open and unapologetic queer, he had to comment on a queer part of my appearance and sexualize it under a male gaze so as to feel better about being scum off my fucking broken boots that will never matter to a cool-ass bitch like me. He had to try to make me feel bad for being proud that I have never and will never be attracted to him. He had to try to convince me that some part of the way I am or the way I look had something to do with him cuz he’s a selfish little toddler.
I really honestly would not mind one bit if every person who is like the little boy I described above just would die out soon cuz you’re all taking away precious resources from people who are mentally progressing past the age of 13.
On the other hand, shout out to the woman that was with him and his friends. You didn’t look happy and you looked like you are so fucking sick of their shit. I don’t blame you for speaking up and letting me and my girlfriend do the yelling. It’s fucking scary being in your shoes sometimes and if you wanna get the fuck away from it all someday, we’re here for you.
Or, maybe, he was just giving you a compliment.
