how fucking dare anyone see that the person who made the orange and pink lesbian flag is struggling to literally just SURVIVE and be like “ummm actually she doesn’t think ace people are queer so, don’t give her money :(“ like i hope somebody literally smashes your fingers with a hammer
you can donate to emily here
(and her carrd with her socials and lesbian flag merch can be found here)
i follow Emily on twitter, and when i say she gets hate for EVERYTHING SHE DOES
she once changed her username to have the d slur in it, and people bashed her for it because it’s “only for black lesbians”. SHE IS A LESBIAN SHE CAN SAY THE WORD DYKE FFS (slur discourse is counter productive and fucking stupid btw)
she is constantly accused of stealing the lesbian flag, accused of being aphobic despite recanting her statement from almost FIVE years ago and apologising. her bio literally says “i made the lesbian flag and have not known a day of peace since.”
she once said “no other flag creator has received this much scrutiny than the lesbian flag creator” (something along these lines) because HOW DARE a lesbian be anything but perfect.
this women is unemployed, mowing people’s lawns to pay rent with her girlfriend, and people are picking at intricacies to NOT donate to her when her flag is constantly used by huge companies like disney whilst she’s barely getting by.
it’s honestly such a chronically online take to not donate to a queer person in poverty because she once said on tumblr dot com 5 years ago at the age of 17 that she doesn’t think ace people are a part of the lgbtq community (which she later apologised for)
