In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

Why do monosexual people (in my experience particularly cis het men) ask pan/queer/bi people which gender they prefer? Men keep asking me this on dating sites. I truly don’t understand what they are trying to uncover with this question.
If I say men, does that make them feel more secure? If I say women, does that make them feel like they have to work harder or do they feel special to be a man dating a woman who prefers women? And what if I said I prefer non-binary folks? Would they even get it?
I think this question baffles me too bc I’ve had more sex w/ men, but more sustained intimate relationships w/ women & prefer the company of women & non-binary ppl socially. So are folks asking about a sexual, social, or romantic gender preference? Do they know the difference?

Thread on naming, claiming, anachronisms, community, & queer identity:

Y’all know I stan for @OctaviaEButler but she wasn’t a lesbian. She died in 2006 when it would have been relatively acceptable for her to be out, even just privately, as a lesbian.

lgbtqnation.com/2019/02/overca…
People read Butler as lesbian/queer because she was a tall, dark-skinned, deep-voiced woman who valued her writing more than romantic relationships. I appreciate that folks want to claim her. We love her. Hell, if I could find a way to claim she was my distant cousin, I would.
But to retroactively apply the label of lesbian to a person who did not choose that term & who left no evidence (see her papers at @TheHuntington) of sexual/romantic relationships with women, does not help anyone.

📢📢 It's #BISEXUAL+ / #PANSEXUAL THREAD TIME!!! 📢📢

Strap in.

Let's talk about . . . public policy advocacy at the state and local levels!!

WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
This month, I published my first academic book chapter in the Routledge Handbook of LGBTQIA Administration and Policy!

routledge.com/The-Routledge-…
I wrote the chapter on bi+ public policy! I'm not sure there are any written resources on bi+ public policy other than the stuff I wrote for @lgbtmap? If there are, PLEASE let me know. I am a Forgetful Frank and also a Self-Absorbed Seth, and may be overlooking the obvious. Screenshot of the first page of my chapter: Bisexuals at the White House.

During a recent presentation I gave on how non-monosexuals can support #bisexual and #pansexual people, a man asked the following "question":

Man: I think there is something important to queerness about being able to critique heteronormativity through humor . . . ?
Now, I've given a few presentations.

And I've met a few men.

And I've heard a few "questions."

Here's what this man wanted to ask me.

"I reeeeeeaallllly want to continue to make fun of bisexual people in different sex relationships, but you made it so sad! Can I please??"
I replied as best I could with sincerity and good assumptions. I told him that jokes about heternormativity have hurt me in the past, as someone in a different sex relationship.

And I told him that I try to locate my critiques at a larger target: the patriarchy.

Hey Twitter! This is @SaraRamirez, artist and proud Mexican Irish American #immigrant #bisexual #queer #woman. To mark #BiHealthMonth, I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about the need to address #biphobia and #bi-erasure. #BHAM18 Sara Ramirez takes over the HRC Twitter in honor of Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
Those of us who love more than one sex/gender use many different labels, but we share a common experience: our presence makes people uncomfortable. Our very existence as #bisexual threatens heteronormativity and the gender binary. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover
#Bisexual, #queer, #pansexual, #fluid, non-monosexual folk are the single largest group within the #LGBTQ community, and we come in all Pantone shades, all genders, and no gender. We're trans, cis, nonbinary. We're ✨everywhere ✨. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover Bisexuals are the single largest group within the LGBTQ community.
