We will see. I'm going back to the dorms Sunday from there we will figure out where this is going. Do you think it's betrayal if I don't unfriend Ashley the other friend even when she is mean towards my best friend
oh gosh sorry for the super late reply anon! Tumblr didn’t tell me that I had a message. :(
I can never find you during daytime hours though. It's just that I love my BFF to pieces and everyone seems to have a problem with her right now. It's annoying since one of the people who talk shit about her and attack her is my friend and not sure what to do or think about this other friend
it’s cuz I’m never on during the day. I meant you could write me now and like I could reply tomorrow. but I can do it now!
hmmm. well, it’s good that you’re supporting your best friend. if people are spreading shit about her, they are probably not people you are gonna wanna hang out with.
that may be something you need to think about with this other friend. is this person worth keeping in your life if they are gonna talk shit? maybe you could gently bring up the subject like, “hey friend, I noticed you’ve been saying harsh things about my BFF. I just wanted to know where you are coming from and why you are saying these things.”
does that help at all? :s
(I am gonna turn off my laptop for the night. if you wanna write more or rant in my inbox, I will reply tomorrow morning, if I’m not too ill.)
“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.”—Laverne Cox (via albinwonderland)
In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.
Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.
“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.
“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.
The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.
The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.
In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.
As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni could be reached for comment.
“Self-care. The way I’ve heard the term used has been very oppressive, like, “You need to be out in your community, you need to be doing all your work, and you need to go home and take care of yourself,” like it’s another item on a list of things to do—“You need to do yoga, you need to ‘go healthy,’ you need to drink water.” It’s just like, yeah, some of these things are great, but you’re still judging or assessing me on my level of productivity, like, “You need to do self-care so you can go back into the community. You need to do self-care because you have work to do.””—Love Corazón in this interview (via boyqueen)
nonbinary people who are okay with gendered pronouns/names are still nonbinary and if a nonbinary person tells you they’re okay with gendered pronouns then it’s really not your place to say that their gender identity is less valid because of that, even if you yourself are nonbinary. Gender is different for everyone and there’s no “valid way” to be a certain gender the only validation you need is your own.
