the expression “i cant say that with a straight face” comes from the fact that straight people have no sense of humour and cant tell jokes

um can you not?

are you straight because I’m sensing a lack of sense of humor

As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.

According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.

Ten myths about affirmative action (via linzyxxxxx)

This is EXTREMELY blatant on college campuses. The fact that these things need to be clarified is sad.

Legacy is the real affirmative action…and yet we don’t see certain types of entitled people suing to dismantle that.

today at work i asked a customer if he wanted french vanilla creamer with his coffee and he said no because he wanted the “heterosexual” creamer instead and it just blows my mind that straight people say shit about how queer people “force our sexuality on them” because i have never met a single queer person who has done something like assign a sexuality to coffee creamer

I just straight up pour glitter into my coffee. Its the only thing gay enough for me.

A proposal to divide California into six states has received enough signatures to make the November 2016 ballot. Here’s how.

six californias

But like. This would need federal approval, and even if people thought it was a good idea, there would be a giant fucking deal about what to do with the senate. dear gawd what a mess.

I think you have a great cause... Unfortunately you are blinded by your own oppression. There can be bias against white people, straight people, cisgender people. I'm bi racial, gay and gender fluid and I disagree with you.

white ppl so childish 

I am very cispicious of this anon.

I need someone to teach me how to be a woman. Not how to perform femininity, but how to survive this world as a woman.

I love when people insist that Lady Gaga shouldn’t be talking about the LGBTQ community because she’s not part of it
when she’s repeatedly identified herself as bisexual
Like, go the fuck at her for cultural appropriation and other legit problematic shit, I’ll be right there with you, but saying she’s “not part of the LGBTQ community” is bi-erasure.

But she recently came out as straight on instigram so, yeah, not part of our community.

Hey! What did you mean with the quote you added to my post? I don't know if I misinterpreted it, but it seems as if you're saying that because I'm a white LGBTQ+ activist, I'm problematic.

Answer:

No, I’m just saying that focusing on luxuries (donating blood) is an enormous waste of energy when there are so many bigger issues (homelessness, employment discrimination, prisons/criminalization of TWoC (and to a less extent trans people as a whole) etc.) that we need to be working on.

My brother donated blood in my place today, since I cannot donate.
Any gay or bisexual man that has had intimate contact with another man since 1977 is BANNED from donating blood, presumably due to the fear of blood-borne illnesses that are often falsely associated with the LGBT+ community.
Any and all blood donated is tested and screened thoroughly, so even if this ban held merit, it would serve no purpose.
The ban on gay blood is discriminatory and unnecessary.
End the stigma.

Ask the White House to lift this harmful ban by signing THIS PETITION.
