Read this article. Please. I know most of the people on here already get the message, but it bears repeating.
This quote in particular expresses some of why I never never talk about certain things in my life: “It’s still hard for me to use the word “rape,” because I feel like I don’t deserve it, or that it implies more violence than was there, or that I’m some fucking attention whore who should really shut up already because was it really that big of a deal?”
Rape culture is in us all.
Welp, I can’t think of a shittier feeling than when someone you love and want to spend the rest of your life with straight up says they could never be attracted to the gender you feel yourself to be and intend to transition to. Not that he knew what he was saying.
I’m kind of proud that at least two of the official Harkness blog posts include me, despite the fact that I live across the country from Oberlin.
Harkness destroyed the institution of marriage last weekend. Check out the not-so-holy matrimony!
So this happened. Queers destroy the institution of marriage special meal!
