This was the funniest hour of my life
At the end of the panel we gave them a round of applause for being so brave in trying to write straights and cisgenders
Especially Jasika, who got very emotional about her childhood with straight parents
types of comments on this post:
-straight people saying :/ love is love :/ gay or straight why does it matter ://///
-gay people saying wait no really i’ve never written a non-lesbian pls help
-people pointing out that even straight people don’t know how to write straight people without unnecessary romance
the truly impressive part of this panel was how for an hour, a FULL hour, they talked about writing straight characters like the st8s talk about writing queer characters and they did. not. break. It was the most amazing piece of improv comedy i’ve ever seen.

I am remaking our post because it lost traction, at this point we are desperate for any help. Our gofundme details much of what we have been going through, but to keep this short for what is happening currently
My partner and I are sharing a toxic home of my long time abuser with limited power, running water, and no stove. We need $150 to get something to cook on/with due to the stove starting fire twice this week. We have gotten more and more in debt (around $850) paying for necessities like my medication, food and for things trying to fix this crumbling house. I have no secure income for this summer other than a PT job for a few weeks, and my partner has been getting denied for jobs in this state. And whats been hurting the most is that I have been suffering with horrible trauma, in Dec I suffered severe anti black, ableist targeted abuse and forced interaction of police and Ive been dealing with the aftermath of that ever since. Three days ago my partners phone broke and we are trying to fix it but we need to get a new one. Its URGENT! we get atleast $350 to get a new phone for my girlfriend and a camp stove to cook on.

this one liberal dude on twitter made the (correct) take that parents have overwhelming power over their kids and very often abuse it and restrict children’s rights and he was ratio’d by conservatives, communists and liberals alike who made comments like “my kids will have rights when they pay the bills” to “aw are you upset mom and dad didn’t you get you a lega set for christmas”. way to prove his point lol! any criticism of the power dynamics adults and particularly parents have over kids and how it is often used to abuse kids or refuse to let them exist as themselves is drowned in mockery and the idea that parents have absolute authority over children and that any less than that is actually spoiling them.
i said it before: people only care about Children as an ideal. as property. as something that is Innocent and deserving protection From Evil Traffickers but also something Dumb that barely deserves the status of human with autonomy. and its fucking wild how even the staunchest communists think of this as normal, and how people refuse to understand that this dynamic is how kids are emotionally, physically and sexually abused, as well as robbed of their voices and too scared/ashamed to talk about it.
it’s worth saying this dude is the parent of a now adult trans girl, and his reflections absolutely come from parenting as well as how he was expected to behave as the father of a trans daughter, how much power he had over her treatment and the refusal of doctors and teachers to listen to her and going over her head to him so they could misgender her and make him consent to conversion therapy.
he did not do these things, but the expectation and judgement that he as a parent was supposed to take away her rights and the sheer power he had over her as a minor made him reflect a lot. and now people are mocking him for sharing this reflection, even as black kids are killed or sent into the school to prison pipeline, as disabled kids are refused humanity, as parents kill their kids to spite their divorced spouses, as trans kids get their healthcare revoked, as migrant kids remain locked in cages. even as these same people panic over child trafficking and pedophile sex rings and refuse to admit how much csa and abuse is from family members.
