can someone please tell the weird sect of angry 15 y/o kpop twitter that actually it is possible to be part of the LGBTQ+ community and still perpetuate bigotry against other parts of the community
I see this the most with sapphics full out saying "achilleans die" as if homophobia is somehow not bad when it comes from other members of the community
You may not have institutional power to oppress but that doesn't mean that engaging in and perpetuating homophobia is not bad???
There is a difference between criticising esp cis gay men for misogyny/transphobia/lesbophobia that is particularly common within that community (valid) and just being homophobic (not valid)
I can't believe some of u have to be told homophobia is bad
Everyone I see involved in this is like 15 as well and like... It feels like the way every 15 y/o is ~edgy~ and finds some kind of normie group to hate, except now with added "treating the LGBTQ+ community like fandom discourse"
There are plenty of grown sapphics who are self-identified "man hating lesbians" (validly) who still don't perpetuate homophobia within their own community, & who show mlm/wlw solidarity
Cw: AIDs /

The reason the L is first in the acronym is as homage to the lesbians who tended at the bedside of mlm dying of AIDs, when nobody else would go near them because nobody knew how AIDs was spread yet

In light of that weird ass take abt a lot of n-b people being ~actually cis~ completely derailing an important point abt transmisogyny in trans spaces
Transfems/TMA folks - what are some ways you've noticed transmisogyny perpetuated in trans spaces? What are some things other trans people can do to make those spaces safer for you? What's something you wish other trans people knew about transmisogyny & combatting it?
(no pressure to contribute ofc if you don't have the energy/mental bandwidth rn, etc. If you do want to contribute your experiences/thoughts, thank you in advance for taking the time)

They better let Jodie's dr be sapphic at some point, there have been so many love interests/mentions of love interests since the 10th dr in dr who and all of them have been women I just want to see female doctor crushing on someone
Let the doctor be a lesbian 👏🏻
All of the doctor's love interests have been female - Rose, River, Madame du Pompadour, Elizabeth I, he had a wife on Gallifrey, the 8th doctor got married, some of the Old Who seasons had romantic subplots between the doctor and companions, etc

Big disclaimer RE the alternatives to ableist language thread that I def shouldn't have assumed goes without saying: I'm giving examples of alternative words not just for people to swap them like for like. It's intended as a tool to enable people to criticise harmful behaviour +
Without suggesting that mental illnesses or disabilities are inherent flaws or personality deficiencies. However, just changing your language isn't enough by itself - the reason that the use of certain language is harmful is it creates the societal mindset that MIs/disabilities +
Mean that someone is inherently flawed in some way. But if, instead of using "borderline" as an insult, you insult someone by straight up listing all the symptoms of BPD, you're still participating in that mindset, just in an obfuscated way. People absolutely are within +

~thread of alternatives to using illnesses as an insult~
Did you mean: self-centred, egocentric, self-involved, vain, self-serving, intractable, stubborn, self-aggrandising, pretentious, self-involved, grandiose, overblown, conceited, smug, narrow-minded, inflexible, adamant, intransigent?

Then say that instead of narcissistic.
Did you mean: cold, uncaring, callous, heartless, cruel, indifferent, sadistic, ruthless, merciless, evil, remorseless?

Then say that instead of sociopath/psychopath.

There's a deep irony in B*ck Ang*l going off on one about how He Personally died to reclaim the term queer when he is the epitome of the brand of weak respectability politics that queer was specifically geared to oppose (thread).
Context:
I would like to point out that
1. The account he's replying to is not a child - they're 23.
2. Nowhere do they mention the word queer either in the tweet, or in fact in their username, bio, pinned, or anywhere else prominent. So Buck is having a Normal One. Buck Angel replying to a tweet that reads
Queer was deliberately fashioned as a radically inclusive term, including ALL non-normative forms of gender and sexuality. The lack of specificity is intentional - it's broad and all-encompassing, doesn't categorise people into neat, easy to understand boxes, and defines+
