I will seriously argue with you until the end of time that using straight people as a blanket statement is not harmful, but that people who think they are accepting of queer people, and not knowing who is truly accepting is. I’m not sure if you’ve ever been afraid to let people know your sexuality because you don’t know how they will react, or what it’s like hearing snide comments towards people who are not straight every day and having it affect you because you know you cannot trust that person.
if a straight person is a true activist they will know that a blanket statement is not going to harm them, it literally means nothing to them because they know I don’t mean them. they aren’t a part of the problem. I’m not going to dull down what I’m saying by being specific and saying “that straight person”
it’s kind of incredible how you completely missed the point of my post because I said “straight people” instead of some straight people. like it’s truly amazing how that’s what you’re concerned about as if my blanket statement has some sort of impact on the way people think or the way society is shaped (it really doesn’t, it will change nothing and means nothing)
I’m not here to coddle anyone’s feelings. so please tell me how hearing oppressive things every single day (you can try and argue with me that those things really ARENT oppressive, and queer people are not considered lower in society) is much less worse than using straight people as a blanket statement, since that seems to be what you’re so concerned about
ehh so one of my coworkers and I were talking about our first kisses and I said mine was with a boy named Amer, and she thought I said Amber and got reeeeally weirded out. then like an hour later she was telling me about things that made her mad, and one of them was people who are homophobic, which I found hilarious. anyways, point of the story is that straight people absolutely astound me when it comes to their definition of homophobia.
I just checked the date and now I know why I saw so many homestucks today
