'Holidays' means I'm going to not be around a lot, which has kind of already started happening for anyone who has noticed the lull in activity here lol. I'll be on and off this blog from time to time, but just not on as frequent until after December.
So yeah :) Just a head’s up lol
Of course heterophobia exists.
Is it as widespread or as bad as homophobia? Well no, not even close.
But it is certainly possible for someone to hate all straight people, hell just look around this website. People say heterophobia is justified though since lgbt people are oppressed but personally being part of an oppressed group does not give someone a free pass to hate.
I know some people who are heterophobic are probably like that because of past bad experiences, but then I have to ask why do past experiences justify hate against the privileged group? If you find yourself feeling bigoted towards a group work on it instead of well, be hateful. (I myself am a bit bigoted towards a certain group due to past experiences but I work on trying to overcome it and certainly don’t treat people in said group badly).
tl;dr Of course people can be heterophobic and while it may not be as bad as homophobia that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist and that people can’t hate straight people, and to say ‘well homophobia is worse blah blah straight tears blah blah privilege’ ignores the very basic fact that hate is hate. And this is coming from someone who’s gay.
Hate, caution, distaste, or anger towards cishets based on things that the majority of them have done to our community and continue to do to our community =/= heterophobia. (This shit isn’t based on PAST experiences, they’re based on actual experiences happening right now)
Hate, caution, distaste, or anger towards cishets is not founded in simple interpersonal slights. Hate does not equal hate, and saying that is blatantly ignoring entire truths about how systems of power work, how oppression works, why people are homophobic versus why people are angry at cishets, how queerphobia effects our society, and more.
Hate, caution, distaste, or anger towards cishets is not based on illogical fear or hatred that magically fell from the sky and into our laps.
I am sick and fucking tired of people relating heterophobia to homophobia on any level. “While it may not be as bad blah blah” — then why are we even justifying it with discussion? It’s not that it’s ~not as bad~, it’s that, in the same universe of homophobia, heterophobia IS NOT A REAL THING. It is quite literally a term that oppressors made to victimize themselves and demonize LGBT*Q+ people for being angry at their bullshit. It means nothing.
You sat here and said that us queers need to ~work on~ not being mean to our oppressors. We need to work on that. Us. The people being oppressed need to work on loving and being ~less bigoted~ to their shitty oppressors.
Awesome thanks, a fucking plus. We never thought of killing ‘em with kindness before. Much revolutionary. So great.
I am going to sleep.
I hope you fall off your bed and get a charley horse.
This has got to be the best line I have ever read on anyone’s “meet the mod” section.
And by “best” I mean that it made me want to smash their face in with a cake.
Calling someone cishet derogatorily doesn’t make fucking sense, just like using tranny as a slur doesn’t make fucking sense. Like I’m sorry there are people who have been rude to you in the past but being mean doesn’t do anything except hurt people who want to support your causes. I am cisgendered and heterosexual like a large portion of society. I’m sorry that people from the cishet group have been mean to you. But hating all Germans because of Nazis is stupid. I’m not a bad person for acting like my born feminine gender and liking guys, just like other people aren’t bad for being how and liking what they like. If anything, people who fall out of the “average” societal boundaries could be more understanding and less libelous because they know how hurtful labels and rude stereotypes can be. So stop acting like childish little bitches and learn to at least BE CIVIL. god DAMN
Did you really just use the t-slur and then tell other people to be civil????????????
I just ???????/
Wh aT? ????//!!/???/!??????
"AS AN ALLY, I FEEL-"

We get it.
You want to be us really bad.
But you’re not.
Ahhhhhh thank you :)
