@wrl @pandora_parrot the very end sells it. “Once I realized...”

Hey, lemme try to make a positive post on here for once..

I got this playing-possum crop top! And it’s my first crop top.

@minty_da like if there was ever a flying/dragon Pokemon - it SHOULD be flygon - named literally after: 1) a bug, and 2) a dragon ??

@minty_da the fact that flygon exists while this fact is true is bullshit.

there's no equilibrium state between queerness and cishetness. there's no set of 'real' genders or sexualities that could exist as stable counterpoints to the normative, heterosexual binary. queerness is a state of difference from the norm, and the norm exists thru and for the repression of everyone who falls outside it

@noelle there is something satisfying about everybody finally realizing that he’s as much of a creep as we all thought he was already. Took y’all long enough....

Which is why i say “bi lesbians are real” not “bi lesbians are valid”. All I’m doing is saying they exist because they do. They don’t need me to tell them that they’re valid in order for them to continue existing, lol.

I don’t think it’s bad to tell someone they’re valid, and i think a lot of people like hearing it; it’s more that i think our general focus on telling people that they’re valid makes us think that “what the community says is valid is OK” and conversely “what the community doesn’t say is valid is not” and i don’t think that’s a healthy mindset in general

Show thread

It means well but it is based on a concept that we have to seek validation from others or that we can decline to offer it if we so choose; neither are or should be true

‪Alright time for my hot take on “validity” discourse. “Validity” suggests an authority that can either validate or invalidate who you are and saying “x is valid” reinforces the idea that this is a good thing that we should care about. ‬

Hey what’s up mastodon, I’m just here to say that bi lesbians are real and i just got blocked by like 5 people on twitter for saying so. Figured I’d try my luck over here
