Bob McCoskrie, founder of Family First, a New Zealand group opposing marriage equality. Can we just read that again? “Equality doesn’t mean sameness.” Way to go, man. Stellar word choice. Sheesh. More. (via gaywrites)
i mean…i obviously disagree with this guy but what’s wrong with his word choice?? I actually completely agree that equality doesn’t mean sameness.
Yeah for real. I mean without getting into how the latter half of his statement is some made-up bullshit, the former half kind of undermines his point. Equality does not mean sameness, that’s why people whose lives and bodies and families are different than yours deserve the same rights and opportunities. “Equality does not mean sameness - that’s why all officially sanctioned relationships should be the same”. What he meant to say is “I am against certain forms of equality”.
instead of a barista can I be an espressomancer
“Racism is an atrocity, and that is the backbone of this book. That is very clear to anyone with an appreciation for irony who reads it.”
Apparently, Weird Tales will be publishing the first chapter of Victoria Foyt’s racist atrocity of a novella, Save the Pearls: Revealing Eden. Also, apparently, people who think the book is racist don’t appreciate irony and are big, mean dumdums, upon whom Mr. Kaye wishes “a blessing and a curse”:
The blessing is to wish they acquire sufficient wit, wisdom and depth of literary analysis to understand what they read, and also the compassion not to attack others merely because they hold a different opinion.
The curse is an integral part of the blessing…for if they do acquire those virtues, they will then necessarily look at their own behaviour, and be thoroughly ashamed.
Right. WE’LL be the ones ashamed.
Marvin Kaye’s article was pulled and condemned today,
THANK FUCKING GOD edit: no on second thought & after reading above blog post, fuck weird tales anyway
“I deeply apologize to all who were offended by our association with this book. I am offended by it. I fully respect those who have been writing negative things about us today. You are correct.”
If you didn’t get a chance to read the original editor’s defense it was fucking terrible, he invoked goddamn Zanna Don’t and everything

I have the anxiety-y feelings of just having done something potentially socially embarrassing but I can’t even remember what I did
it could be literally anything. did I reply to something on facebook today? did I comment on an article? did I read too many comments on an article? did I text somebody? did I think about texting somebody? am I getting stressed out about something that happened weeks/months/years ago that I can’t remember? am I getting stressed out about feeling awkward at my friend’s wedding that I’m not even invited to yet?
any leads, let me know
hey guys let’s talk Shakespeare
am I the only person who never got how hesitation/indecision/inaction was Hamlet’s fatal flaw? like sure he was pretty navel-gazey and mopey, but also he stabbed his girlfriend’s dad through a curtain. it’s a curtain you can pull it aside and check, right? that is not a hesitant person. I think his fatal flaw was that his family was fucked up and he didn’t split Denmark the minute his uncle proposed to his very recently widowed mom
I was supposed to write a whole paper in 11th grade about how he was too hesitant, but instead I wrote about why he was too rash. I think I got a bad grade on it but maybe I was just being 15 and bored and contrarian

The Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) has published two groundbreaking booklets on sexual health for trans people. Each one contains basic – yet valuable – information on trans bodies and health needs.
Each booklet tackles a whole bunch of common questions, such as: do post-op trans women still need prostate examinations? and: can trans guys get pregnant after going on T? There’s some trans specific information on HIV prevention, and also some more general health advice.
The language is broadly respectful and acknowledges the great range of trans identities. There isn’t as much of a binary division as might appear to be the case from the titles, with each booklet noting that the information contained within is also relevant to queer or non-binary individuals…
Read the rest from transactivist here (and thanks to our user Redskies for the heads-up!).
