People see bi/pansexuals as a sexual Schrödinger’s Cat. Until you date some one, you’re neither straight nor gay and you simply exist as a weird in-between state that only exists as an idea and not a “real” sexuality. Date the same gender? GAY NOW. Date the opposite? STRAIGHT NOW. NO OTHER OPTIONS. STRAIGHT OR GAY, SAME AS ALIVE OR DEAD. YOUR SEXUALITY IS DEFINED BY CURRENT SEXUAL PARTNER. THIS MAKES TOTAL SENSE, LA LA LA.
“When we dismiss the poison of discrimination in our waters we die from it; or worse we adapt and don’t know when we’ve become toxic ourselves.”—Jewelle Gomez, “Femme Butch Feminist” in Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme edited by Ivan E. Coyote and Zena Sharman (reviewed at the Lesbrary). (via stellarer)
Before you start paying attention to anything a prominent white feminist has to say, google “their name + transphobia” and “their name + racism” to see what they have to say about trans women and people of color. 99% of the time, you will save yourself so much time and energy and reading this way. That’s time you could use to do something else like play video games or jack off.
