Take the time to read through. This is the most beautifully sarcastic thing I’ve ever read.

This is an oldie but goodie of the internet. The first time I ever posted this I immediately got a very angry message - “HOW DARE YOU EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MARRY THE PERSON THEY LOVE” and so on. 
If you’re ever feeling irate about a post online and want to comment about it, at least make sure you’ve read more than just the title.

People want to believe gender is something that’s essential, and people repeat these essentialist ideas all the time. “Oh, women do that” and “Oh, men do that” and the reality is that all women don’t anything. We as individuals do what we do, you know, and sometimes that’s informed by gender and sometimes it’s just who we are. And I think all that just makes people really, really uncomfortable because they don’t want to think about who they are.

Religion and Gay Marriage

A video by John Green, 1/2 of the vlogbrothers and NYTimes Bestselling author. Perhaps most famously known for The Fault In Our Stars. 

I’m a big fan of John Green and he’s been getting a lot of hate on tumblr recently for reasons I don’t fully understand, though I recognize that many of the things that are getting people angry come without full context. 

He has always been very LGBTQ positive*, co-authors a book featuring several gay characters, and sponsors AFC Wimbledom which actively works to end homophobia. Aside from these, he’s involved in women’s rights and education and poverty and is generally trying to make the world a better place by using and acknowledging his privilege

*Examples of this can be seen in tons of his videos, but I like that linked quote in particular.

So…. this was my coming out to my friend Jake. The other 4 people around him already knew. He just sorta stared, (not a good audio I guess), thought I was joking, then when we all started laughing, just said “What the hell??” I love this x]

Does tumblr still allow you to call and make audio clips? Because recording coming outs used to be a hobby of mine. Here’s me first coming out to my good friend (now loving boyfriend) 5 years ago. It’s got the awkwardness and embarrassment of freshman year and I love it.

some people feel pressured by labels, and therefor don’t like to label their sexuality

some people find comfort in labels, and labeling their sexuality has given them a feeling of belonging

both are completely fine

i’m not sure why some people still can’t comprehend this
