when your cishet relative talks about your “future husband”

when your cishet relatives talk about “the gays”

(x)

Does everyone know that you can’t do anything about how you’re family thinks? The holidays are the worst for bringing all of this stuff into the open. It’s not because you’re parents are cis. It’s because they’re a different generation. Your children will feel the same regardless of how progressive you are. If you don’t like it, leave. You aren’t a hostage.

when a cishet comments on your post

do gays only ever talk about being gay?? like in my family no one asks about “future husbands” or “the gays” or any specifically heteronormative thing. we talk about everyday life and things people do: jobs, family, friends, kids. none of these things are exclusive to just straight people. you make it seem like people just go arounds asking about your sex life when honestly no one fucking cares. oh and if you havent come out to your family yet, why is it wrong to ask if you have a “boyfriend” or whatever? they are taking an interest in your life and want you to be happy but you make it seem like a bad thing but you are the one who hasnt informed them of what makes you happy.

when the cishets keep leaving their stupid unnecessary comments on your posts

“everyday life and things people do: jobs, family, friends, kids” this just in, the gays don’t experience everyday life

also “you are the one who hasnt informed them of what makes you happy”

yikes, thanks for guilt-tripping me like its my fault that i havent come out to my homophobic parents and family yet

Well, to be fair, that IS on you. Like your parents have probably told you at some point, they can’t read your minds.

People are actually more accepting of homosexuality as a whole in this day and age than you might think. If you told them, they may or may not like it, but that doesn’t mean they’ll stop loving and supporting you.

You just gotta take that chance.

when the cishets think they know more about homophobia than you do

Oh, the Straights™

This post just keeps going and going

🍸🍸🍸🍸🍸

Oh my god can straight ppl please shut up about the family dynamics queer ppl have to deal with?

Proposed, February 25 2017: A full and complete moratorium on str8 people commenting on any aspect of The Queer Experience ™, to include but not limited to: managing the holidays with homophobic and transphobic relatives, the risks and benefits of coming out (and methods and timetables for doing so), people making heteronormative assumptions about our (sex or everyday) lives, how Society feels about The Gays, and claims regarding causes of said feelings about The Gays relating to age, region, education, class, etc., particularly if the str8 person in question does not belong to the demographic under discussion. Penalties to include public mocking and a $100 penalty owed to each and every queer person who witnesses the str8 person in violation of this resolution.

Resolution to take effect immediately upon ratification by 3 or more queer people, with no grace period or forgiveness for offenders at any point following.

All in favor?

Seconded!

Jesus fuck. Even if you’re lucky and have a loving accepting immediate family, THAT MIGHT NOT BE THE CASE FOR EXTENDED FAMILY AT CHRISTMAS. 

Picture the scene: me and my mother, visiting my mum’s mum, mum’s 2 sisters, and sister’s kids and grandkids. 

Aunt D: *running herself ragged chasing several small people* So are you looking forward to being a granny, [my mum]?

My mum: *snort* Oh I’d be happy if I’m never a granny. 

*stony silence throughout the room

My cousin/Aunt D’s daughter: Oooh, you better make sure you don’t have any accidents, Jen! 

My mum: *scoffs and quickly moves the subject on* 

In the car later, bless her, my mum said that she didn’t want me to feel awkward. I don’t have any doubts about either her or my dad’s love for or support of me and my sexuality.  The only thing that stopped me from replying at the time was trying to decide which would offend my catholic relatives least: “It would have to be an immaculate conception at this point” or “I’m practicing lesbianism as a form of birth control”.

If I mispronounce your name because it is foreign to my tongue, correct me.

I don’t purposefully allow the accents of your name to fall flat on my tongue like the European English demands or the language to sound chopped and misheard.

If I don’t say your name correctly, don’t shrug and say it’s ok because people have been doing it all your life. Your mother worked hard to name you that name, with all its syllables and apostrophes and hyphens and inflection.

I don’t want to disrespect your heritage, your culture, your great grandmother or grandfather and their struggle.

If I mispronounce your name, forgive me, but don’t let it happen again. Make sure everyone knows your name.

What makes me so sad about this post is that people with cultural or non-English names need this post to feel comfortable enough to tell you how to pronounce their name, whereas white people with weird names will immediately snap and say, “No, it’s pronounced _____”.

America is about to be that part in the lion king where where pride rock became all shitty bc Scar became king

have yet to see a better analogy

Are you implying Hilary Clinton’s daughter will assassinate Donald Trump because I’m okay with this

Actually, if we follow the narrative, I think it would be the Obama daughters. Which would be even MORE awesome.

Malia’s gonna fight Trump on the roof of the Whitehouse while it’s on fire.
