i hate it when adults assume i’m on the internet all the time by choice. if i had enough money to travel around and etc, do you think i would be withering away my youth behind a computer screen you useless paperclip.
I dont think i have ever heard the term useless paperclip used as an insult before.
clearly you never tried to write a word document in the 90s
hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras
actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.
basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”
Pansexuality is one of the many ignored sexualities. I got a request asking if I could make a post about pansexuality hate after I made one about asexuality so here I am, more than ready to rant!
Pansexuals do exist!
Pansexuals are not bi
Pansexuals are not attention seeking!
AND THEY DON’T LIKE PANS!!!?!!
What on earth would make you think that there are so many people out there that are sexually attracted to pans that they had to make an entire sexuality of it????
Pansexuals are people who are attracted to people of all sorts. They may find themselves falling for someone of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Some people don’t understand this because they only think of male and female when it comes to genders. BUT there are many, many, many, many, many more genders.
There are transgenders; people who change their gender from the one they were given at birth. This can be done legally and you can even change your birth certificate in some places.
There are gender queer; people who prefer not to be associated with any gender identity. They may use male or female pronouns but some prefer gender nuetral.
There are genderfluid; people who like to switch gender from time to time. They can do this on a daily basis if they want to. Whether they bind when they like to be masculine or wear a body suit/ padded bra when they want to feminine.
Those are just a few examples.
Pansexuals can also be panromantic, which is similar only it refers to who they are emotionally attached to, rather than physically. You can be panromantic and pansexual, or you can be one or the other, along side with another identification like asexuality or demisexual, or any of the others in fact!
Some people may claim to be bi only because they do not know what pansexuality is. However, most bi people are bi because they’re uncomfortable or unattracted to being in a relationship with people other than strictly male or female (THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY ARE PREJUDICE OF THEM! ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO THEM!)
Pansexuals, like any other sexuality, can have a preference to a certain gender or gender identity. You may like trans boys most because you like a butch personality (not that all trans boys are butch) but prefer to be sexually active with female bits. Or you may have a preference for people who identify as a girl. Maybe you like genderfluid people most because you get a variety of attractions. Maybe you like genderqueers because you just do. There doesn’t have to be a reason for any of this!
Basically, everyone should just shut up about other people’s sexualities because it’s none of your business who they like or don’t like in what way or the other? Pansexuals don’t like pans (usually… you never know). Pansexuals aren’t bi! And people need to stop calling them stupid, monsterous, or fake. Why?
“Some people may claim to be bi only because they do not know what pansexuality is.

ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO THEM!)”
Stepping in to make some corrections here.
The distinction between bisexuality and pansexuality is that for bisexuals, gender is a factor in attraction, whereas for pansexuals, it is not. For example, if you asked a bisexual what their ‘type’ is, they might reply “well, I like sassy girls with red hair and short shy boys and androgynous tall nonbinary people and flower child demi-girls and and and”, whereas if you asked a pansexual the same question, they might reply “well, I like people with mohawks and tattoos and cute smiles and nice arms”.
If you’re looking to pull out the “but ‘bi’ means two!!111!!!!1” argument, please first consider that active bisexual support groups have been defining it as attraction to the SAME gender and OTHER genders for decades. That makes two.
I agree with everything else you said in the post, but if someone says they’re bisexual, it’s nobody’s place to tell them they aren’t. If you sought to educate, it would’ve been better to simply explain the differences without making assumptions. Bisexuals and pansexuals are both frequently shunted off and demeaned by the straight AND gay communities. We should be supporting each other, not insulting and erasing sexualities.
This entire thing is ducking beautiful
Fudge recipe on a headstone
I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.
I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”
That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
"My family is suffocating me with pressure to be a perfect student and daughter." (r.i.d)
people always ask me why i’m going into teaching instead of being a writer.
the number of notes on this in less than 24 hours and the number of people who said “same” or “exactly” or “about me” - that’s why. there is so much fundamentally wrong with our system. The only way to change it is from within.
