The water at Lake Superior froze, but the water beneath it was still moving causing the pieces of ice to stack on top of each other once they hit the rocks.
This is my home and it makes me so fucking happy.
if breasts, butts and legs are so distracting to men, to the point they cant function
why aren’t they that distracting to lesbians
and at that point
why isn’t the penis bulge and legs not distracting enough to gay men to warrant men being put under the same dress codes

This is the first slam poem I’ve written and it means a ton to me as part of my personal development. Hopefully you all like it.
I’m a lesbian, and while I’d love to be able to get married to my girlfriend someday, I’m done with hearing about same-sex marriage.
For the love of god, stop acting like this is the most important LGBT issue to be focused on. It seems like people will care soooo much about marriage equality, but when it comes to any other LGBT issues, they become so quiet that you can hear the crickets chirp. It’s a start, but we need to pull our heads out of our asses and stop acting like this is the biggest problem the LGBT community faces.
LGBT people who focus entirely on marriage equality must live pretty easy lives if that’s their biggest concern. I know that sounds cruel, but it’s true.
Allies that focus entirely on marriage equality aren’t the best allies.
Listen, I get it. I get that marriage is a cheerier subject to talk about than homeless LGBT youth or the suicide rate among the LGBT community, but come on. There are more important things to focus on than whether two men (or two women, but I often see focus on men) can legally be married. I just wish people could sort out their priorities.
I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
Try being in a relationship with a scientist and then tell them that science and art is the same….
Stop feminizing gay men.
Yes most of the time they are likely to be a bit more effeminate than straight men and in some occasions they are quite clearly proudly, openly very effeminate.
But that doesn’t mean we want to be women.
And it doesn’t make it ok for straight female friends of gay men to say things like ‘omg can we put makeup on you pleeeeease!!!’ and ‘youd look so pretty in that dress’ and ‘im more of a man than you are lol’
One time my friend told me about how her dad asked her if any boys are coming to her party and she answered with my name and another gay friend of her’s and he replied with ‘oh well they barely count do they’ and she found this so hilarious, saying ‘im crying’ and telling me this as if I was going to find it funny.
Why would I find being emasculated funny?
That’s what it is. Emasculation. Did it ever occur to the world that although I’m attracted to men and may have some effeminate tendencies, I still like to feel like a man? That I like being one and like being seen as one. And that I have a right to feel like the gender I am.
As much as it is a woman’s right to be able to feel like a woman if she wants.
It’s like calling a woman who just happens to be a lesbian ‘a total man’ and asking her if she has a dick or something.
I get that often they’re ‘just jokes’ but…
Do you understand that they do not make me feel good?
Because seriously, straight women or even straight men, doing this is so frequent and widespread, I wonder if they genuinely think that when they make jokes about gay people that strip away any shred of masculinity they have, that these gay men somehow like it. As if it was our goal to be seen as women and not as men and that we’re going to pat ourselves on the back when someone sees us as one.
Homosexuality does not equal transgender.
I like men.
That doesn’t mean I necessarily like:
Dressing up as a woman.
Referring to myself as a woman.
Seeing myself as a woman.
Others seeing and referring to me as a woman.
And jokes that reduce me to nothing but a laughing stock of a man who apparently wants nothing more on this earth than to be female.
And don’t say that I’m being sexist because I have no problem with any man who wants to be a woman or who sees/ refers to himself as a woman or that there’s anything wrong with being a woman.
But there is something wrong with being denied the gender you are purely based on your sexuality.
