I was chatting with someone and I basically said how I wish there were more queer characters and he basically said that since queer people are such a low percentage of the world he doesn’t really see the point of having more queer characters in shows and books. First of all he’s also gay so I was…
Queer people are a mahooosively small percentage, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t huuuuuge groups of them.
As you’ve said, more or less everyone you hang out with is, and I can’t imagine that adds up to three or less people. It would be unrealistic (depending on setting) to have EVERY character be queer, but you said “more” not “allllllll the people” so DO THAT SHIT!
I’mma do that shit, because even if all a story’s main characters are straight or white or cis or anything like that, that isn’t a reason for the story’s setting and background to just forget that anything else exists.
I think it’s funny when people are surprised that I don’t take their bullshit. I cut my own mother out of my life, what do they expect?
It’s enough to have to deal with your own problems…
*is a friend who prefers to skip the pretext and open with either, “I’m so fucking angry!” or just, “So *insert thing here**
In regards to said first year (not like I totally know who or anything* tell him to piss off unless he actually wants to be a friend. Even then, he needs to mellow the fuck down and learn that sometimes his problems are, a) just that, his, and b) not actually problems.
Also, excellent articulation of a potentially complex area of discussion, guys! People do need to do things both ways with moaning, and also simmer down and only rant about the bigger things. - and they definitely need to cut the guilt trips, grr.
[…] Time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life, make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live? It’s easy feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today. But there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive. We have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you is to become hope. People need that. And even if we fail, what better way is there to live?
So I was at a thrift store and I see this little cat lamp.
I was like “Aye yo, ya’ll are fuckin’ adorable.”
So I bought the lil’ guy and took him home to plug him in.
Then I was like “No.”
well no wonder why it was in the thrift store
but shit it was 99 cents
This place’s about to blow.
"you can’t ship that, that character has canon interaction with the opposite sex"
what if they took west side story and made a version where it was set in verona in the 1400s and instead of gangs there are two powerful italian families. i just think that would be really cool
