Queer Nerd with a Ukulele

Cricket. They/them/theirs pronouns. Transmasculine genderqueer white person studying environmental justice at a liberal arts college. This blog is mainly reblogs with occasional selfies and personal musings. Expect lots of trans and QUILTBAG things in general, environmental topics (especially food justice), and critical commentary on racism, ableism, and classism in a mainly U.S. context. I also post occasional cute animals, Harry Potter fandom things, and cool embroidery when I need a pick-me-up.

thought this was a useful infographic


Some folks also approach bisexuality as being attracted to multiple genders but with a different degree/kind of attraction to each, and pansexuality as liking people without feeling like gender is a big factor in that attraction. That’s not a universal approach, though.Also, some folks (like me!) use the terms interchangeably depending on what feels most communicative in any given situation.

don’t talk about reproductive rights without talking about forced sterilization. don’t talk about reproductive rights without talking about eugenic abortion. don’t talk about reproductive rights without considering who you are implicitly encouraging to have babies, and who you are discouraging from it.

Thinking about if it’d be a stress release to come out as polyamorous to more of my extended family, because then I could talk more openly about how my relationship(s) are going and how I feel about that, especially if something happy happens that I want to share or something scary happens that I need support around

But since I’m only in one romantic relationship currently and am not planning on starting another one right now, in terms of talking about the present that’d just mean talking about how I make out and sometimes do BDSM with a few of my friends and sometimes also with folks I meet online except that went super terribly once and I still have nightmares about it

Idk if sharing that more broadly with relatives would actually make me feel more supported and comfortable or not, or if I’d just end up feeling even more awkward

"The bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol… It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed."

quantumspork asked:

Have you ever had a crush on a prof/teacher?

Oh geez

Yes, several

Pretty much every lady teacher in her 30s that I had in high school, except the environmental science one, oddly

And a couple in college, but if you want details on those I’ll just tell you personally

When your right to say no is entirely hypothetical

realsocialskills:

Some scary controlling people will tell you over and over how important consent is to them. They will tell you that they want to respect your boundaries, and that if anything makes you uncomfortable, they will stop. They will say this over and over, apparently sincerely.

Until you actually say no.

And then, suddenly, they create a reason that it wasn’t ok, after all, and that you’re going to do what they wanted anyway.

They will tell you that it *would* be ok to say no, and that of course they’d respect it, but you said it wrong. And that you have to understand that it hurts them when you say it that way. (And that you should make it better by doing what they wanted).

Or they will tell you that of course they don’t want to do anything that makes you uncomfortable, but you said yes before. And that this means that either it’s really ok with you, or that you don’t trust them anymore. And that you have to understand that it hurts when you withdraw trust like that (and that you should make it better by doing what they wanted.)

Or that they have a headache. Or that they just can’t deal with it right now. That maybe when they feel better or aren’t tired or grumpy or had a better day it will be ok to say no. (And that meanwhile, you should fix things by doing what they wanted).

Or that by saying no, you’re accusing them of being an awful person. And that they’d never do anything to hurt you, so why are you making accusations like that? (And, implicitly, that you should fix it by doing what they wanted.)

If this kind of thing happens every time you say no, things are really wrong. 

No isn’t a theoretical construct. In mutually respectful relationships, people say no to each other often, and it’s not a big deal

Everyone, my sweet sweet lover is in A LOT of pain and it doesn’t seem any of our accessible remedies are going to work. I am beyond worried and at a loss of what to do next. There is a lot of shame in asking for help. So please know we wouldn’t be doing this if we had another way out. Knowing we have had the support of our community far and wide during this process has been a truly beautiful experience. Thank you everyone for all of the love and support!

OHH this is the disgusting Lolita cover I’ve been waiting for all my life.
