This is cute as fuck and describes pretty accurately how I feel too.
This comic is included Anything that Loves edited by Zan Christensen.
aside from this comic being really cute and honest, it also points out this really huge glaring problem in the gay community in relation to trans-men.
in my experience with a lot of gay men, they have this extremely purist view when it comes to what being a “real man” is, which is bad enough when you have different gay subcultures (bears, gymrats, etc) who have different specific definitions of what a “real man” is.
however for the most part, many gay men seem to agree upon a point of leaving trans-men not only out of their gender, but out of their sexuality as well and I have a real fucking problem with that.
i’m pretty open about things that relate to my sexuality, and i myself identify more or less as a homosexual, but i’ve found the worst part in the gay community is dealing with this bullshit. eventually i found that i at least have the luxury of telling guys to fuck off if i don’t meet their standards, but i know that’s a lot harder for folk when they seem to have the entire population of homosexuals more or less invalidating not only their gender, but their orientation as well.
with all of that said, i just ask this. if you happen to be a cisgender homosexual, like myself, don’t tell other gay men that they aren’t actually gay if they’re dating or have had relations with a trans-man because that’s a load of fucking bullshit.
more important, under any circumstance do not tell a trans-man they’re not a man or that they aren’t allowed to like other men who are homosexual, be they cis or trans.
that’s all i really wanted to say.
hey uhhh my dash seems to need this right now hello lets be better informed
Minus the pre-T post-T attraction, I felt this was a good comic overall.
Interesting and adorable.
Nicki Minaj is the best.
I like how this barely has any reblogs/likes, but let it be her yelling at someone or defending her self against some snide remark from another celebrity or her going on a rant and it would have 10x the amount of reblogs with nothing but hate in the comments section.
My friend worked at a group home for kids. One of the boys wanted to become a rapper and wrote her. She called him, gave him a free verse and told him to keep chasing his dream.
I’m in this program that’s almost all white except for about five black people. The guy in charge asked us to yell out words or phrases that make us angry or upset. All the white people were yelling out dumb shit like “school” or “traffic” and then one of the black guys goes “I’m not racist but..” and all the black people started dying and agreeing with him and all the white people got really quiet and just sat there. Then this one white lady started to say how she hates that phrase because she doesn’t mean to be racist and before she could finish her sentence all of us just glared at her and she shut up. This is a program full of grown ass people. She knew she was wrong.
