Things I'm Expected To Do for Straight People in Return for Their Not Hating Me: An Angry List | Sanctimonious SilentAgony
This list goes in the right direction, but it doesn’t quite sit with me. Here’s my take (emphasized):
- Answer questions about how I fuck, how I manage my relationships and how I live my life.
- Nod and smile when they tell me that some day I might change.
- Be “tolerant” of all their dipshit opinons, including but not limited to:
acceptance of pedophilia, acceptance of incest, and dismantling of the institution of marriage entirely because that would be better than my wanting a piece.their moral judgments on LGBTQ people’s social viability, their “pity” for the “suffering” that LGBTQ people must “forever endure”, observations regarding “the causes” of being LGBTQ, their opinions on the legitimacy of the pride parade, their assumption that all LGBTQ people are gay and that bisexual and transgender issues are non-existent, unimportant or unacceptable.
- Stop looking so
- Never ever mention
gaybisexuality or transgender issues rights or call them out on homophobiabiphobia and transphobia. (Lesbian and gay issues are less discomforting; be perceived as “making a fuss” if you talk about either of the four).
- Cosign every time they want to make fun of
gaysLGBTQ’s (and especially trans women), use the word “gay” or “trans” derogatorily, or say “faggot.”equate bisexuality with confusion and transgenderism with “perversion”.
- Offer praise, admiration, and endless compliments whenever they want to discuss how hard it is to be an ally.
- Praise and pat them on the back each time they don’t act like LGBT-phobic assholes.
- Never, ever-ever-ever, take up space to discuss your life, your issues and your oppression as an LGBTQ person.
- Answer and apologize for their perceived missteps of “the community” because apparently
we all act in concert.they know better than us how to manage our struggles.
- Nod and smile when they tell me how disgusting they imagine it would be to be
gaybisexual or transgender, how hard it must be for my partner(s), or how hot it would be to watch.
- Never ever mention that I’m
gaybisexual or genderqueer.
- Laugh at their
- Give them warm hugs and heartfelt thanks when they tell me they
are a member of my “family” becausethey “support” me. Sorry, who the fuck are you?
- And most of all, never ever ever imply that my life might sometimes be difficult because I am
gaybisexual. Such things are only for them to discuss when they tearfully recount tales of ally-hood. And anyway, bisexuals are “not oppressed”.
Not perfect, but anyway - there it is.
