I'm over here, too:
You are aware the S in GSA stands for “straight” , right?
You are aware that the GSA is supposed to be a club that benefits & spreads awareness for members of the LGBTQIAP & our issues, right? & having a cishet in a position of power just mimics already-established power dynamics in society? The ones that hurt people of the LGBTQIAP? & cishets in positions of power tend to speak over us? & tend to get upset when we talk about how they oppress us? & someone in a position of power who gets upset when non-cis/non-het people speak up might maybe possibly make said non-cis/non-het people feel unsafe & uncomfortable in their own space?
You know that, right? No? Oh, right right. It’s prob cos you’re…a…cis…het. Hm.
Story time: this year is the first time that our club has had more LGBTQ leadership than straight leadership.
Last year, the straight president, vice president, and secretary decided that the group didn’t have enough members and that the solution was to change the name to remove the word “gay” and make it some sort of generic-ass we need to love everybody group.
THE STRAIGHT PEOPLE RUNNING THE GSA GROUP LITERALLY THOUGHT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO FOR THE ORGANIZATION WAS TO MAKE IT SO THE GROUP WASN’T ABOUT LGBTQ PEOPLE IN NAME OR FOCUS.
Tell me more about how straight people should have ownership in our spaces.
PLEASE TELL ME THEY DIDN’T JUST NAME IT THE “STRAIGHT ALLIANCE”
I WILL LOSE MY SHIT IF THEY DID
PLEASE TELL ME THAT IT’S BACK TO GSA NOW
OR GA OR LGBTQ CLUB OR SOMETHING OFMG
The full story is that it used to be SAGA (straight and gay alliance). The leadership wanted to change it to something that didn’t allude to sexuality at all “because SAGA had a bad name” and it gave them the chance to “be more inclusive.” Lots of angry LGBTQ kids, myself included, told them that was a terrible idea and, under a new (lesbian) president, they decided on GSA this week.
I’m not at my home school this semester nor was I last fall so I haven’t been able to do much besides show up to be furious about the suggested name change. I was, however, asked to run against a straight person by ~5 people but lost because they made voting so restrictive that only THREE PEOPLE, including the dude’s girlfriend and one of his good friends, were allowed to vote. It was a 2-1 decision.
tl;dr- straight people have a really nasty habit of taking over LGBTQ spaces.
maybe its just me, but STRAIGHT,CIS, NOT-QUEER-AT-ALL, ONLY-ALLY PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER FUCKING HAVE ANY AUTHORITY OVER LGBTQ SPACES and SHOULD NEVER HAVE A FUCKING CHANCE AT BEING LEADERS.
Why? READ THIS SHIT.
There’s a cis lady in my support group who sort of functions as our secretary. She makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable, but I’ve never actually brought it up. I mean, technically the group is for trans people and our SOFAs, but still…
Here are some clarifications for you:
"Most girls that like snakes and weird animals are ugly" pardon me while I put my snake on my face to demonstrate the several fucks that none of us give
Allow me to join you with my snake scarf and lack of fucks
I don’t think I’d have a face left if I did what you guys were doing, but I want to play anyway.
don’t give even one tiny little fuck
NEIGH HOY MENOY
I was gonna reblog this either way but that last one made me want to reblog it even more
ITS NOT SEWING SUPPLIES!
My question is how does every single person identify with this, is it like a secret rule to use those for sewing supplies?
I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.
"I’m really feeling good about myself!"
This makes me SO happy. Amazing!
Coming up with schemes with your best friend
