Inclusive language doesn’t wish to be exclusively used; you can still call yourself a women, or a white man, or even a mother. Continue reading Inclusive Language Is Not Exclusive Language
For far too long, the world has placed enormous importance on someone’s sex. So much so that we would treat people differently if they were a man or a woman. Indeed, with progression, we’ve come to learn that someone’s sex is not an overarching factor in someone’s character. You can have a vagina and lead a Fortune 500 company and, equally, you can have a … Continue reading Curiosity Is Not A Reason To Know Someone’s Genitals
My coming out story was pretty uneventful in the end. There were bumps, of course, but they were all smoothed out eventually. I’ve mostly been accepted, and the only people who denounced me were those I didn’t really care about. So, I can easily be called a privileged gay. But it doesn’t make me feel better. It should, in some way, because it means I … Continue reading I’m A Privileged Gay And It Doesn’t Make Me Feel Better
Considering the fact that homosexuality was a criminal offence for most of the 20th century, gay men being shallow makes sense. We had to constantly be on our game, picking up who’s really interested or who might just be a cop. Or who might be keen for a gay bashing. It’s not like we were able to freely date anyone. But since we’re now a … Continue reading Why Are Gay Men Still Shallow?
…and why trans women are still women. Continue reading The Difference Between Trans Women and Cis Women
I’m all too happy with going to hell. At least I’ll be with my own kind. And hey, I won’t have to deal with religious zealots who keep telling me I’ll go to hell for being gay – all while they claim religious freedom; as if that’s gonna help. I mean, it was either renounce my sexuality or go to hell; and since I can’t … Continue reading Religious Freedom: Drawing The Line At Idle Threats
We live in a world where everything seems black and white. You’re either right or left, male or female, gay or straight. But I’m here to tell you that everything in this world is not as concrete. There’s a fluidity on this earth that far too many of us miss. Most of all around sexuality, where we fear being sexually liberated. We cannot fathom being … Continue reading The Fluidity Of Sexuality
At 16 years old, I was told I’ll go to hell for being gay. It was my first time, and definitely not the last. And I remember thinking that if she is going to heaven, then I don’t ever want to go there for eternity. That just sounded like another version of hell to me. Because I knew that her hate for my supposed sin … Continue reading “Hate The Sin, Love The Sinner” Is Not Always Right
“But they don’t look like that,” they say. And isn’t that sentence ironic. They… Unfortunately, there are people out there who refuse to accept preferred pronouns. They conjure up biological arguments so they can conserve their right to ignore change. Because they feel it is right to adhere to genitals when referring to boys and girls. But aren’t we more than just genitals? Of course, … Continue reading It’s Silly To Refuse Preferred Pronouns
While we live in a progressive world where sexuality is just another thing, some people still think you can catch gay. That acting feminine or liking certain sexual positions are telltale signs you bat for the same team. But, as we will soon learn, being gay is just a personal identity. Only you can make that mark. That being said, here are three things that … Continue reading 3 Things That DON’T Make You Gay
The media love to blow a trivial news story out of proportion. Following the renaming of branded products like Coon Cheese and Red Skins, some radical gay activist launched a petition that wasn’t really making waves at all. In fact, it still isn’t. But now thanks to a media blitz, the fate of the Golden Gaytime is shaky. And I think it’s all utterly stupid. … Continue reading Don’t Knock My Golden Gaytimes!
When it comes to the media representation of gay people, we seem to prefer the non-limp wristed type. Whether it’s the normal everyday gay who’s not a screaming queen or the “straight-acting” gay. But we seem to forget that some gay people are actually gay. Like really girly and feminine. Are we just going to ignore this every time a James Corden jumps on-screen to … Continue reading Some Gay People Are Really Gay
