if u reblog anything about how being trans or not straight is becoming a fashion trend and try to discourage individuals from exploring their gender, sexual, and romantic orientations, im automatically unfollowing u
there’s no if ands or buts for this, if ur creating an environment where individuals aren’t going to feel safe or valid while exploring their identity, then ur creating an unsafe and harmful space thats only going to hurt and invalidate people

Ferguson residents return for another day of protesting to find that overnight the police had ripped up their signs and threw them in the dumpster.
So…. I think I accidentally started a series of Discworld couples, and I didn’t notice this until the fourth one. Uh. So following Polly & Mal, Vimes & Lady Sybil, Moist & Adora Belle, and Angua & Carrot…. who should I do next? William & Sacharissa? Magrat & Verrence? Serious question here. (Non-canon couples obviously included, I just don’t really personally ship any others besides Polly/Mal.)
Black History month with Ruth Ellis.
Ruth Ellis (1899 – 2000) dedicated countless years of service to her community, and particularly black LGBT youth. In 1937 Ruth moved to Detroit with her partner Babe, the two bought a house, which from 1946 to 1971 was known as the “Gay Spot.” Not only did their home serve as a safe space for Detroit’s LGBT community, but the couple also offered lodging and support to many black LGBT youth in need. In a time before the Gay Civil Rights Movement began Ruth was a beacon of light for many LGBT youth who found themselves in the dark. In 1999 The Ruth Ellis Center was founded in Detroit, MI, which continues to offer lodging and support to LGBT youth in need. She continued working with LGBT organizations until her death in 2000 at an age of 101.
I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just…
