Drag, as performance, if critically analysed, is an obvious offensive slight against women more than it is men exploring “femininity” or expressing repressed empowerment, as it is nothing more than camp performance. It’s not an authentic expression, and thus insincere. Having never been a fan of drag shows, but still sometimes catching one by chance I was never impressed by what I was seeing, and to this day fail to see the point. While gay men […] cheer them on and throw money at them in a way that emulates what happens to strippers at strip bars. It truly leaves me puzzled. Of course, drag is hardly the most relevant or pervasive issues in relation to gay cultures or gay men’s misogyny, it is one of the more often addressed ones.
An issue with gay men that really gets to me, even most all gay men I know and love as friends, is language. I can’t stand how prevalent misogynist and even macho lingo actually is among us. I’m by no means perfect, words have slipped out, it’s something I’m sure we have all been guilty of at times, but the more conscious we become the more we must acknowledge how harmful these words are and work on exercising them from our vocabulary. For the most part politically “progressive” gay men understand why certain words are wrong. There is no need for an explanation why racial slurs are offensive, or homophobic slurs obviously. While causing an uproar over the word “faggot” gay men will viciously and hypocritically respond with “cunt” or “bitch”. When gay men are a problem (via youhauntyourbagofbones)
what im saying is that bisexuals, pansexual, and asexuals should all join together so we can be in the fictitious trifecta. enough people will say we’re not real and we’ll all converge together in a massive, fierce mass only spoken of in myth. dont come near us or you too will cease to exist
luxuryofconviction said:sssssame and I don’t even look straight so what is up w that. I’ve been conditioned to assume all chicks are straight until proven otherwise tho so maybe that’s part of the problem.
i actually try and attempt at flirting w cute girls all the time but i think its just passed off as straight girl being nice i think i should just start winking (while “subtly” checkin them out”
no I mean I assume all chicks are straight until proven otherwise so it’s plausible chicks that I am hitting on assume all chicks are etc. as well, therefore assuming I’m just being nice as opposed to registering that oh hey look at that this person is attempting to court my ass
I’ve literally taken chicks on dates and hit on them consistently [one of them for straight up like two years until she confessed her feelings for me and said she had been avoiding me because she didn’t want to ~betray my platonic affections~ like what no]
