    You know I’ve often wondered why it is we have children in the first place and the conclusion I’ve come to is at some point in our lives we realize things are, they’re messed up beyond repair. So we decide to start again, wipe the slate clean, start fresh and we have children, little carbon copies we can turn to and say, you will do things I cannot. You will succeed where I have failed because we want someone to get it right this time. But not me, personally speaking I cannot wait to see life tear you apart.

    Stoker (2013) dir. Park Chan-wook 

    My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I’m not formed by things that are of myself alone. I wear my father’s belt tied around my mother’s blouse, and shoes which are from my uncle. This is me. Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free, and to become adult is to become free.

    so like. lesbians and gay men aren’t allowed to have anything anymore huh


    countless lesbian and gay film festivals are now “LGBT” film festivals

    GLAAD is no longer an acronym, just a word, because god forbid the name have “gay and lesbian” in it

    national gay and lesbian law association? exclusionary. now it’s the “lgbt bar association”

    gay and lesbian advocates and defenders? now “GLBTQ legal advocates & defenders”

    gay and lesbian medical association? now “glma: health professionals advancing lgbt equality”

    the national gay and lesbian chamber of commerce? now the national “LGBT” chamber of commerce

    national lesbian & gay journalists association? now “the association of LGBTQ journalists”

    services & advocacy for gay elders? now “services & advocacy for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender elders”! :)))))))))

    god forbid those greedy homos have anything for themselves! god forbid they have their own resources! god forbid they have their own events!


    In light of JK’s new book, here’s a link to donate to the UK Charity Mermaids who help provide support to trans and gender diverse children and young people!

    And here’s a link to the trans rights carrd and the black trans lives matter carrd!! Even if you can’t donate signing petitions can do a lot of good!

    Love you all, especially my beautiful trans and non binary followers out there! Keep being the most incredible souls! 💕💖💕💖


    Oh so were promoting charities that are being found out to promote conversion therapy in gay children now. Nuuuuiiiiceee!!!!


    They also doxed teens and parents who were contacting them trying to get help. They just uploaded that information to the web, names, emails, phone numbers, addresses, not even encrypted. That’s why they got removed from the bbc list of LGBT resources. Mermaids UK also successfully lobbied to change A-level textbooks because the actual, real-life, legal precedent discussed in the textbook might possibly, maybe, be triggering to some students.

    Mermaids, unsurprisingly, has decided to spend their time online writing about how awful JK Rowling is, rather than trying to secure the personal information of the many vulnerable minors whose parents contacted what was, once, a trusted charity, for help. Celebrities who supported mermaids have quietly deleted their tweets of support.

    I don’t really care if OP or anyone else wants to send their money to charities, but Mermaids literally put thousands of trans teenagers and children at risk. Supporting them to “own the terfs” is as dumb as trump supporters drinking bleach to “own the libs.”


    In light of JK’s new book, donate to this sexist af charity that transitions literal children, many of whom are statistically more likely to be gay rather than trans, which is one of the EXACT points JKR raised in her essay that transactivists claimed ~never happens~


    In light of JK’s new book, a murder mystery about a 40 year old cold case, here’s a link to the US’s Cold Case Foundation, a 501©3 nonprofit that works cold cases to bring killers to justice.

    Apologies for not knowing a UK equivalent.
