Tim Gunn, a homoromantic asexual, says has said in interviews can no longer participate in LGBT parades and "safe" spaces because of his lack of interest in sex. He does not receive respect for his orientation. Personally I understand what he is saying, the bigotry I have seen come from this "safe" community proves that it isn't some universal kumbaya of acceptance.
That really sucks honestly.
And I agree about the bigotry. It’s disgusting and uncalled for. I’ve heard people say that asexual people don’t get shit for being asexual, when they haven’t even had enough conversation with a few asexual people to say that.
There is so much exclusion in the LGBT community. If you don’t fit a certain mold, you aren’t fit to be part of the movement, something I find to be bullshit. I hope that eventually the movement will reach a small part of solidarity.
Lol, I can wish, right?
People that’re cisphobic and proud:
People that’re heterophobic and proud:
People that’re racist against white people and proud:
People that’re misandric and proud:
Yeah, you’re not a “special little snowflake” for being these things. You aren’t changing the world from “fighting fire with fire,” you’re only being as ignorant and idiotic as transphobics, homophobics, misogynists, and racists, except even more gross and self-proclaimed.
i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.
Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
- Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
- While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.
- She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
- In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
- She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
- Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”
The term BAMF was coined for such persons.
Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?
Yet another story I would like to read.
You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
