All my housemates and I rush outside at once to marvel…

I finally hung the art of the walls after living in my new house for almost two months.

Reading nook at the foot of my bed: a celestial-patterned silk scarf, and Nikki McClure prints in Ikea frames.

I’m not sure which flag that is, but I like this.

This is the nonbinary flag! The nonbinary flag is separate from the genderqueer flag now, for a handful of reasons, like some people not being okay with the q slur. We use the genderqueer flag still because one of our mods is sensitive to the color yellow (which is nicely diminished in saturation in this image) and gets nauseated.

welcome to the FEMINIST CULT, today we’ll talk about terrifying topics such as BEING NICE TO YOURSELF and PROPER SEX EDUCATION

As a lesbian, I do not care at all about bisexual girls feeling left out or judged in the LGBTQ community. I know that's horrible, especially since my girlfriend is bi, but I find it very revolting when I think about making love with someone that loves taking dick. I fell for my girlfriend without knowing she likes guys and girls. I don't purposefully date bisexual girls and I don't think it's wrong to say that.

I really hope your girlfriend realizes she’s dating a pathetic waste of a human being and finds someone infinitely better. 

A lot of lesbians are turned off by the idea of their gf having sex with men. Why is that such a bad thing? Why is it so wrong to only like women who like other women? I think the anon who asked this should be honest with her gf and break up with her though if it’s that much of a turn off. 

At first I wasn’t going to reply to comments like these but now that I’ve had a couple of beers the idea of repeatedly hitting my head against a brick wall seems more enjoyable so here we go.

I have a problem with lesbians who claim that they have a “preference” towards dating other lesbians over bisexuals. I understand having a preference, I personally have a preference for girls who are my height or taller than me.  However, does this preference make me view my own voice, safety, and representation in my community as superior and of more importance than those I do not have a preference for? Nope. That’s why this anon (and unfortunately other like minded individuals)  don’t have a “preference” they are biphobic and overall prejudicial assholes.

If you’re not comfortable dating bisexual people because you feel they will ultimately leave you for the opposite sex or (insert other stereotypical view of bisexuals) you don’t have a preference, you are biphobic, and have some huge insecurities that you should probably deal with before you enter a relationship.

If you’re a lesbian and do not feel comfortable dating a woman who is also attracted to individuals with dicks because you find it “icky” or “gross”, it must blow your mind when you find out your partner likes watermelon and you don’t. How do you even move forward from there? Is the relationship just doomed? And yes it is the same thing. Those individuals are judging someone based on something they cannot control.

Prejudice and phobia inside the queer community is something I will never understand and is absolutely infuriating. 

Prejudice and phobia in any community makes no sense.

Not to mention the grossly oppressive and transphobic means by which this shitty idea is explained. You don’t like the idea of your girlfriend “taking dick” aka your idea of “having sex with men”? Because no woman could possibly have a penis or no man could possibly have a vagina and because genitals in anyway correspond to gender….right. -sarcasm- (Meanwhile we’re, as a group, constantly accused of being the ones who perpetuate binary erasure and transphobia)

It’s also super misogynist to think a woman is pretty much dirty after having sex with anyone.

I don’t really like calling someone “a pathetic waste of a human being” especially because when you get down to it, biphobia is homophobia is sexism in a lot of ways (meaning there’s also internalized oppression going on here). YES: “It’s also super misogynist to think a woman is pretty much dirty after having sex with anyone." And seriously lesbians need to stop thinking it’s okay to say it. Okay, so you’re admitting you feel that way. Good first step. But sorry, it’s still wrong. Wrong! Yep makes yeh a jerk. 

Honestly I think if she verbally expresses how gross her partner’s past sexual history is really mean and possibly abusive. Slut shaming your partner over her past is abuse!

Biphobia helps keep bisexual people in the closet, afraid to experience sex with both the same and opposite genders because of prejudice not just from straight people, but from within the LGBTQ community. Sure, a bi person might be more-or-less happy living as straight-in-public, bi-on-the-inside…in a way that, of course, lesbian and gay people could never be happy living as straight. But closeted bisexuals aren’t experiencing their sexuality as fully as they would like to. Dismantling biphobia will lead to more bisexual folks coming out of the closet. And the more LGBTQ folks willingly, happily out of the closet, the better.

Did you know? It’s your RIGHT to access reproductive healthcare without being intimidated or terrorized.

People need to see this. 

It is illegal to willingly harass and intimidate a person on purpose, even if you are doing it outside of an abortion clinic.  Remember this, pro-lifers.  You can and will be charged. <3

Men want us to kiss them with beards, suck their dicks and kiss their balls with pubes, hug them with hairy arm pits, intwine our legs with hairy thighs, but if women have one hair on our body that isn’t on our head it’s disgusting
