Finding My Way

Affirming Progressive Christian blog. I hope to study Sociology and Religion in college soon.

I always think ‘when will my life begin’ but the fact is that I’m living my life every day, and that I might not be here tomorrow, and that thought scares me. 

If I didn’t have a crush on Mikasa before I’m pretty sure I do now.

I need some anarchist blogs to follow.

If your conviction about who can or can’t marry who is stronger than your conviction that children should be fed, sheltered, and educated, you’re doing it wrong.

Hypocrisy

At first I didn’t get what this meant.

But once I did it hit me like a ton of bricks.



Are we really so different that we must be horrified of one of them uncovered, and completely okay with the other?

this is now my most favorited post ever

My school is going to have a class next year dedicated to teaching paranoid rapture theology and how to survive out in the wild ‘when the beast comes’ and they’re masking it as a history class. This is what goes on in my conservative Christian school.

On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered

A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered

The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90 

The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old

75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc

Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”

[Gifset: Laverne Cox speaks at the GLAAD media awards, she says,

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."]

I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.

or: “I’m having a bad mental health day and need to be on my own for a while so please don’t be mad if I cancel our plans on short notice.”

"I wasn’t able to get my homework done because I was having a bad mental health day."

Miles Jai saying what needs to be said.

"There was also a LGBT panel (at Playlist Live) that my friends were on. That was really fun to go to, and it was also very, um, enlightening. But the thing about having, like, an all gay cisgender white panel and calling it a "LGBT panel" even though there’s only gay white people on it isn’t really very accurate. And you know, I feel like a lot of people, even the panelists, have agreed that there should be more representation on the panel. I mean, who could they find that represent a different part of the LGBT spectrum? So yes, more represntation in the LGBT panels. Not just like, one lesbian and 4 white gay guys."

here’s to more diverse panels in the future! :)

The White Houe petition to recognize nonbinary genders reached 100,000 signatures

gaywrites:

Meaning the Obama administration will actually look at the petition and consider it. Wow, wow, wow. 

I’ve seen a lot of backlash against this petition lately saying that it won’t do anything to help the status of nonbinary folks in the United States. I have my opinions, but as a cis person who won’t ever change to a nonbinary gender marker, I would rather hear other opinions out there first and learn more about what y’all are thinking. 

So, what say you? Will legal recognition of nonbinary genders — say, allowing for a third gender marker on official documentation, as that’s how other countries have addressed this — make things easier for nonbinary people in the U.S.? Will it be harmful or make no difference? Will any practical, functional changes follow, like more nongendered facilities, or not? Would there ultimately be a purpose for this recognition?

Other thoughts?
