[screenshot of a poll: New York has become the latest state to legalize same-sex marriage. where do you stand. The options: “gays deserve the right to marry”, “civil unions, okay, but not marriage”, “This is simply wrong and against nature”. The last option has the largest portion of the vote.]
BILL O’REILLY posted this leading question on Facebook and apparently, gays don’t deserve the right to marry.
Help me fix this?
Coming out stories: next move?
Just want to get a consensus, considering there’s still 100+ submissions to process, even with the painful process of not publishing ones that ring too familiar those already shared. There’s been various feedback on the volume of them, and I’m beginning to worry I can’t find enough other content to mix up with them.
Option 1 - New side-project tumblr. It would mean people would need to resubmit their stories there if they wanted to share, and we’d also accept all stories of coming out, regardless of if they’re funny or serious, happy or sad.
Option 2 - Keep posting them here, publish the majority, just weeding a few out that aren’t really funny or too similar to ones already submitted.
Option 3 - Keep posting them here, but only publish a pick of the best.
It’s up to you guys. Reply with your vote of 1, 2 or 3!
Who are your LGBTQ heroes?
Answers don’t have to be funny. To be honest, I’m just curious. Photo replies enabled if you want to post a picture of said hero :).
One of mine: Alan Turing.
EDIT: And I completely get if you consider a fictional character a hero. Them being fictional doesn’t stop them inspiring you.
What is your earliest postive queer memory?
One of mine: When I was 9-ish, and my sister 5-ish, I remember her telling my aunt she wanted to marry her best (female) friend. My aunt’s nonchalant comment: “When you’re older, you’ll probably be able to.” And now, slowly but surely, marriage equality is spreading.
What are your favourite queer-themed/inclusive films?
I want to make mondays ‘Movie Monday’, and post some special film-related funny stuff. But I’m not a huge film watcher, so I need some suggestions!
My favourites: Kinky Boots, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, But I’m a Cheerleader
What are some of the stupidest questions you’ve been asked about being queer?
Sometimes even curious but well meaning folks get it entirely wrong. Inspired by seeing this on my dashboard and subsequently reblogging to my own tumblr.
Name That Sheep Poll
This ambiguously gendered sheep needs a name. And with tons of comments suggesting them, I’ve drawn up a shortlist of 10 of my own favourite ideas (can you tell I like them punny/tongue in cheek? :P). Now it’s up to you to vote for the little one’s name!
So, who’s your choice?
Have you ever been used as a “gay litmus test”?
AKA used by someone to test if they’re into same-sex non-platonics. It was a common occurrence for me as a teen, wondering how true that is of others.
