the absolute gall of my local police department to paint their social medias with the gay + trans pride flags after refusing to intervene in a conflict between aggressive homophobic protesters and queer teenagers last pride bc uniformed officers weren't invited
hi from the guy who brought you religion teacher with a monobrow, french teacher & ireland’s next top model and toenail maths teacher comes this shit: i was literally hospitalised in my old school for being gay & my form (home room) teacher said it wouldn’t have happened if I “didn’t appear so gay” anyway someone threw a bacon sandwich at her one day and she broke down into a fit of fake tears & went on stress leave & got therapy for it & said we were “all such horrible little bastards” but she thought i was being dramatic for getting stabbed & coming in to finish off my exam the next day
A Texas man who attacked and robbed gay men after luring them to a residence using the dating app Grindr has pleaded guilty to federal hate crimes charges, the Justice Department announced Thursday afternoon.
During the span of a week in December 2017, 22-year-old Daniel Jenkins and at least three other men used Grindr to lure gay men to a vacant apartment in Dallas where they would attack and rob them.
According to Jenkins' plea, he admitted that in some instances the group would hold the gay men at gunpoint and travel with them to ATMs where they would force them to withdraw cash.
Jenkins pleaded guilty to one hate crime count and one count of conspiracy to commit hate crimes after admitting he and others injured at least one of their victims and taunted others because of their sexuality.
"These defendants brutalized multiple victims, singling them out due to their sexual orientation. We cannot allow this sort of violence to fester unchecked," acting U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah of the Northern District of Texas said in a statement announcing the plea. "The Department of Justice is committed to prosecuting hate crimes. In the meantime, we urge dating app users to remain vigilant. Unfortunately, predators often lurk online."
Jenkins is now the fourth person charged in connection with the scheme to plead guilty, according to court filings. He is set to be sentenced on Oct. 6 and could face a maximum of 26 years in prison.

So like as someone who had to do most of my learning about lgbt culture from books/history research and asking the only two gay men I knew who grew up in in the 80's to 90's, and I know it's been said already, but y'all really fucked up when y'all decided "gay panic" meant "I'm gay and find someone attractive" instead of an actual defense used by homophobes to justify killing a man after finding out he's gay. That's what "gay panic" is, not you simping over Ruby Rose or whoever the fuck. I cringe internally everytime I see someone say that. We need to stop forgetting this shit.
why are TIMs so obsessed with their genitals?
really tho... it's just violence against women & penises 24/7 with TIMs
We joke on here. We’re light, we’re playful. But if I can be emotionally open with y’all for a second? This vox article has had a greater negative impact on my psyche than the full weight of homophobia falling upon my little training bra wearing shoulders at the sweet young age of 11 and getting a silly little tumblr account that very same year combined. Like truly. Wake up babe New parasocial nemesis just dropped except it dropped two years ago and I’m insane.
homophobia wins 🥰🥰 /j /j /j /j
