& of note
my relationship is NOT actually a cishet relationship (i’m not cis, neither of us are straight) but it sure looks like it from the outside. which is why i generally stay out of queer spaces. i definitely need that community for myself and my soul as i always have but i feel like there are things i can put together with friends (like record/potluck night) that will fulfill that in me; i would rather just be a support and a resource for others who don’t get the resources i am personally able to take advantage of because of the perception of such things.
also i am not completely white but cops perceive me as white and other white people perceive me as white so i get all the benefits of whiteness, and white people take up too much space in the queer community and, like, everywhere, really.
wrt the discussion on my dash:
i am rarely in queer spaces b/c i know how much space i take up as a queer person in a percieved heteronormative relationship
i honestly feel like myself and people like me DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS TO THOSE SPACES BECAUSE OTHER QUEER PEOPLE NEED THEM MORE THAN ME
like, yes it is important to know that i exist, but it’s also far more important for other people who face far worse issues than me to have access to safe spaces without me taking up all the resources
because while i am queer
i also have so much access to shit that other queer people have to fight tooth and nail for that has just been straight up handed to me
all of this, yes. me too.
Summer of Teen Reclamation is important to me because I was a very dour/sad/little adult teen who was going through a lot of really really awful things and didn’t really have time or the operational skills to enjoy things and have fun so I want to get a chance to do that.

hagnet replied to your post: Getting one of my nostrils repierced (WHICH ONE?)…
i’m teening out this summer by reading a lot of coming-of-age classics that i never read as a teen hopefully and also some teen magazines’ summer reading lists
YEAH. I’m into it.
I also need some thrifted full slips and jungle boots again for Max Teen Jes Appeal.
Getting one of my nostrils repierced (WHICH ONE?) because that’s the only facial piercing I miss (I had like a ton of them because I was a weird teenager in the ’90s, what do you want from me). 34 years old. Summer of teen reclamation.
So this is a movie about transgender people, that has (from the images) at least 4/5 of the main people as TPoC (and 3/5 are Black).
Let’s boost the fuck out of this and see if we can’t get them the money for this doc.
