    📢📢📢using a word as an insult does not make it a slur. Saying “that’s so gay” doesn’t make the word “gay” any more of a slur than saying “you throw like a girl” makes “girl” a slur.

    #a word STARTING OUT AS A SLUR and being reclaimed is not the same as a widely recognised term being used as an insult #‘’I’m queer’’ isn’t not a slur. you’re just reclaiming it #so is ‘’I’m studying queer studies’’ #and that’s fine! #I call myself a dyke and I love that label #i feel free and powerful when I use it #but it’s still a slur #I’m still using a word that started out as a slur for lesbians #I would never try and pressure another lesbian into using dyke just because I use it #ESPECIALLY if they have trauma associated with it #and no lesbian did not start out as a slur for gods sake it just means from lesbos where lesbian poet saphhos was from #it is used as an insult but an insult =/= a slur

    Maybe no one will ever love me but for the first time in my life I am finally loving myself, and I'm slowly learning that that's enough <3

    how would people like a fic about a gal finally reaching F1 and all the shenanigans that come with that, bearing in mind she is also secretly queer with a queer fellow rookie friend. taking place in 2025 with an utterly messed up grid, and I mean utterly messed up (danny ric at Williams, george and max at aston, the whole shebang). i mean I'm saying this like I've not already got what happened since 2021 in F1 planned out and have already written 2000 words. but am I doing something pointless here or could it be interesting????

    #formula 1#f1#daniel ricciardo#shenanigans#fanfic#queer #as much as i love the idea of writing an rpf it feels wrong #but i iust cant wait for a gal to get there #and im sorry to the homophobes but one day theres gonna be an out driver and you're going to have to deal with it #the 2022 regs will work in the fic though #(probably better than they actually will)

    My self-control has finally collapsed under the pressure like a freshly baked soufflé, so now you have to hear about one of my niche af interests :)

    Forbidden Colours by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian

    Hi hello, what your eyes are seeing here right now is one of the most touching pieces of music ever conceived, and no, you Cannot Change My Mind on that

    Look.

    The hook alone.

    The hook

    The synthy-sounds combined with the strings set the mood so amazingly well, and the beautifully haunting delivery of David Sylvian kicks ass from the very first line.

    And THEN the piano comes in again, with that pentatonic motif. I am in LOVE, guys!!!

    Ok so I think we have established my opinion on the instrumentals this far, let's talk

    Lyrics!

    "The wounds on your hands never seem to heal
    I thought all I needed was to believe"

    Just the intro and I am already curled up on the floor in a fetal position!

    Of course the lyrics have a connection to the plot of the movie they were written for, but even outside of it:

    The themes of disillusionment and helplessness are coming in strong :)

    "Here am I, a lifetime away from you
    The blood of Christ, or the beat of my heart
    My love wears forbidden colours
    My life believes"

    You might have noticed I highlighted a line there. That is simply because it lives rent-free in my brain and makes me sob uncontrollably on the regular :)

    Again, connections to the movie, but even taken by itself, it's such an obviously queer narrative.

    The narrator is seperated from someone. Why? Because it's forbidden.

    Or, alternatively: they are, in fact, addressing God/a parent/a way of life, and they feel disconnected because of their forbidden colours.

    I might be going completely off the rails here, but I also love "The blood of Christ, or the beat of my heart", phrased almost like a choice.

    What's more important? Your personal religious believes, or a real human being, alive right now?

    "Senseless years thunder by
    Millions are willing to give their lives for you
    Does nothing live on?"

    This is obviously about war (again: movie), but I like to think this part could be directed at God as well.

    "Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me
    My hands in the soil, buried inside of myself
    My love wears forbidden colours
    My life believes in you once again"

    The symbolism, I'm crying it's so fucking beautiful.

    Hell yeah, king!!! You're a garden, what are we planting??

    Just... "my hands in the soil", sometimes you need to work on yourself first to bloom and I am tearing up, homies

    "I'll go walking in circles while doubting the very ground beneath me
    Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything
    Here am I, a lifetime away from you
    The blood of Christ, or a change of heart"

    You might have notices the colours are back! That is because these here highlighted parts own my soul actually :)

    It's just masterful. I have screamed those. I have cried to those.

    It perfectly captures the uncertainty that comes with self-exploration, with identity and sexuality struggles, and even religion!

    With the operative here being "trying", bringing us back to the theme of disillusionment. The narrator knows it's time to ask questions, but they know it's not what's expected of them. Wanted of them.

    Maybe they are not quite ready yet themselves, still clinging to what they know.

    "My love wears forbidden colours
    My life believes
    My love wears forbidden colours
    My life believes in you once again"

    And this is the beautiful, tragic ending: no solution.

    We are back at where we started. Forbidden colours. The narrator has scratched at it a little, but in the end, it's still forbidden. Their life believes. In what? Could be a lot of things. In the context of the movie, the strict japanese way of life.

    Could be God. A parent.

    Doesn't matter! The status quo has not been changed, even though the narrator lets on they think it should have been.

    It's tragic, it's beautiful, it's absolutely haunting, and it's inherently queer.

    Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk :)

    Okay but can we pls let go of the idea that BL and Good Queer Rep are mutually exclusive concepts? There's plenty of shows that fall under the BL genre, or are at least marketed as BLs, that have genuinely good queer representation. And that's not on accident. There's writers, producers, actors and directors out there that are making the effort and pushing for BLs that are actually representative of queer people and their experiences.

    You think UWMA or TOL or 1000 Stars or He's Coming To Me shouldn't be counted as BLs bc they're "actually just good shows representing queer people"? Yeah that's bc a bunch of LGBTQ+ and/or allied creators/artists in the industry took BL scripts and said I'm gonna make this into something better. I'm gonna make an effort to change this genre for the better. Go look up interviews by the writer of UWMA or the directors of Manner of Death and Not Me and 1000 Stars where they talk about the need for good rep in BLs and wanting to make their works better represent queer people. Look up how the writers of Cherry Magic deliberately changed Fujisaki's character from a "fujoshi" to an explicitly aroace character bc they felt that representation was important. It's not a fucking coincidence that these shows are so good it's because people behind the scenes are working hard to make them so.

    STOP DISMISSING THEIR EFFORTS BC YOU RELATE BL TO ONLY BAD THINGS. BL CAN AND SHOULD HAVE GOOD REPRESENTATION!!!!

    #genuine rep #like seriously some of yall dont understand how important it is #to push for better queer rep in bl #bc bl shows are way more accessible to the Asian market than #as bls are mainstream #thai series#thai show#thai bl#thai bls #theory of love #uwma #manner of death #1000 stars #not me the series #cherry magic

    not starship iris going straight for my heart and reminding me how incredibly deeply i crave found family stories where the characters ACTUALLY form a family instead of moving on the second they’re apart............

    NO ONE is doing found family like them

    #tscosi #I THINK I WAS REALLY GETTING TO THE POINT WHERE I WAS JUST RESIGNED TO IT #PEOPLE AREN’T ALLOWED TO FORM IMPORTANT LIFELONG BONDS ANYMORE I GUESS #and then iris BUST through the door going those chuckleheads were doing WHAT with found family??? #today on: reasons that diverse creators are SO important #this is what happens when you have queer people leading media #you get stories that actually expand the definition of family and love #instead of feeding us the same old tired ‘oh yeah they all changed each others lives and then uh bopped off totheir little nuclear families’

    I think I shared a profile pic with someone and we matched, two halves of a whole, an orange split into smaller pieces {and I think that's why I liked her because she hid the sour part of me behind her} small emotions stuck between the pips and I think

    This is love

    I think I snatched away my notebook from someone curious something cruel and shrivelled stuck inside {it was my heart} and as their face crumpled {like the torn paper notes I'd written to them} I relented, I think, and as she flipped through my scarred and crumpled letters with my entire heart {yet nothing} I can't help but think that even in the cracks of pain, it's bleeding out-

    This is love

    I think I gave someone my shoulder to lean on, and as she dropped her burden, face lightening, even though she didn't say a word I can see the indecipherable smile she relaxes in content and vulnerable {only with me? what a beautiful mistake} and I wonder how something can be so tender

    This is love

    And maybe it's just the fact that it's just so much and so heavy and so great that it feels like an enormous debt to someone or somewhere {that I cannot repay} but maybe maybe I think I'll learn that there is something beautiful in chipped pieces that are broken {but not broken!} and maybe and maybe we can be whole and I think maybe, maybe it's time for me to accept and tell myself that it's ok {maybe I am a mistake but I am a good one which will make better mistakes that can be cherished} and that The broken wings that were bent once a wound, a mark of cowardice can now maybe be a mosaic a patchwork of scars and shapes {or maybe it can just be me because I'm still just me} of the fact that I exist! I am existing and I am continuing and I am here to live! {and finally, and giddily I think} This is love

    #please do not steal this! This is a vent that is close to my heart #which I have struggled to articulate because for a long time I had a dark mind set- #I think now things are looking a bit better though... so I found a half written poem I'd written and decided to finish it. #you can reblog though!! #tw blood#poetry #shit this was longer than I expected- #a kind of holiness that is being human;; #queer poetry #poets on tumblr #vent poetry#self love #mental health poetry

    Thinking today about how there's one YA book about someone who's Jewish and aspec that hasn't been released (even as ARCs) but literally has a 2 star rating for daring to mention nuanced issues that almost all Jewish-American teenagers grapple with??

    #book twitter is a MESS #a lot of teens go on birthright because the community heavily encourages it and the trip has a giant propoganda machine ??? #its a VERY COMMON jewish american experience ????? #having a book that deals with that is not automatically evil #UGH #being jewish and aspec is also totally different than being christian and aspec and i would love to see that in a book and for teens to!! je #how can you hold jewish american teenagers accountable for a country's government actions #also most of the reviews say the author/pub is trying to hide behind a queer character. Jewish people can actually be gay too?? Ffs
