Burn all of your bridges
just so that you can build them again
with thicker ropes.

Hurt all the people you love
and then commit every felony to win them back.

Drown yourself in bleach until not even Heaven’s light
can compare to how bright you can burn.

Turn yourself inside out
and paint your organs the color of what you see
in your dreams.

This is the art of
living with a ticking heart — a grenade you
throw through windows to make a
point that language
has no room for.

This is how I destroyed you. And this, is how
I kept you alive.

Dig yourself a ditch, six
feet deep, and bury everything that you’ve ever
said, everything that you’ve never
meant, and everything that has
burned you and left you with nothing
but ash.

“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.”
- Neil Gaiman (via thatquote)

warning: just a little bifurious

I will be using that tag on posts about bi politics that specifically speak negatively about pansexuality and/or the pansexual community in general, with the caveat that I do believe it is an important element of bi politics to call out biphobic behavior in the queer community at large and that many pansexuals do use biphobic rhetoric to differentiate their identity - and unfortunately, as always, negative voices tend to dominate the positive ones.

I will not be using this tag on all posts about bi politics or all posts talking about the similarities and differences in bisexuality and pansexuality as identities, only on the ones I feel are clearly dismissive of or hostile toward pansexuality. As always, this will be a matter of judgement, so if I don’t tag something you find overly hostile or hurtful, please let me know so I can take that into account for future posts.

people are fine calling other people “they/their” when they don’t know their gender but when someone says they WANT those pronouns suddenly it’s too hard

Think men don’t cry as often because they’re “strong” or lack emotion? Well, you can’t cry if you don’t have the tears to do it. Before puberty, girls and boys cry in equal amounts, and for pretty much the exact same reasons. When puberty hits and we get our hormones on (testosterone for the fellas and prolactin for ladies), our ability to PRODUCE tears changes. Testosterone may inhibit tear production in men, while prolactin actually makes crying easier (and encourages it) for women. Though the experience of feeling emotion may be exactly the same between the sexes, men’s bodies are simply less likely to produce tears as a response (while women’s bodies may produce them automatically, especially in response to stress). This hormonal difference also means that in situations where men & women BEGIN to cry, men may be able to shut down the reflex more easily, whereas women may have a much harder time holding them back. Women with especially high prolactin levels (preggers, post-preggers, hormonally imbalance like me, etc) may find they can cry almost indefinitely when emotions run high. I call it “leaking”, lol. In general, women are QUEENS of the “good, long cry”. Women may produce more tears than normal when depressed/anxious because of higher levels of tear producing stress hormone.

For men trying to understand a female cry response, it’s kind of like a boner for your eyeballs: sometimes it happens for no reason and you can’t shut it off right away EVEN when you desperately wanna. That’s not to say women are emotionally irrational or somehow unable to function when crying: we just have a physical response to emotion that makes us more likely to express it with tears. Tears (or lack of tears) are also NOT an indicator of depth of feeling or lack of emotion: a man can be devastated and simply be unable to produce tears (or will produce just a few). A woman can be mildly upset or stressed and cry whole heartedly.

“Let’s stop claiming that certain genders and sexualities ‘reinforce the gender binary’. In the past, that tactic has been used to dismiss butches and femmes, bisexuals, trans folk and our partners, and feminine people of every persuasion. Gender isn’t simply some faucet that we can turn of and off in order to appease other people, whether they be heterosexist bigots or queerer-than-thou hipsters. How about this: Let’s stop pretending that we have all the answers because when it comes to gender, none of us is fucking omniscient.”
