Ever hear the term “SJW”? It means “social justice warrior,” and it refers specifically to people who point out racism or sexism in movies, video games, and other pop culture. Those people are considered worse than other types of critics because instead of just pointing out that a movie has flaws, they’re accusing people who like it of being awful.

Except they’re not, of course. If someone points out that the alternator belt in your car is slipping, they’re not accusing you of being some kind of mustache-twirling, white cat-stroking supervillain for having car problems. They’re not accusing you of anything. They’re talking about your fucking car.

When I Make A Literary Reference And No One Gets It




There’s a second interesting tidbit in all that “lesbians are more likely to be fat” business. As it turns out, queer girls (lesbians AND bisexuals) are ALSO more likely to NOT THINK they’re fat, even when their BMI puts them in one of the “overweight” categories. On the flip side, straight girls are more likely to think of themselves as fat even when they’re not. That’s right, “overweight” queer ladies tend to be less critical of their bodies than straight women. Researchers want to call this a problem of self-perception, but I have a different theory. It could be, perhaps, that queer girl culture doesn’t suffer the incessant, unreasonable pressure of the male gaze in the same way that straight girl culture does. After all, if you don’t have to concern yourself with attracting men as romantic partners, it’s considerable more reasonable to not give a fuck about their photoshopped-magazine-and-mainstream-pornography-fueled beauty standards, and you might be less likely to internalize that garbage.

why the fuck would straight ally’s get scholarships meant for LGBTQ students


I’ve been seeing this going around and while I get the frustration behind criticizing allies for getting scholarships, I think it’s a lot more complex then meets the eye.

I know several straight kids who started GSAs at their school because their parents were LGBTQ.  These kids endured homophobic bullying from their peers all through their school years, saw firsthand the lack of support from teachers and administrators, and are generally more aware of heterosexist/homophobic/transphobic dickery not because of who they were, but because of their parents.  They were impacted when their parents were fired for being queer or faced homelessness or struggled with substance abuse.  They supported their parent to hostile schools when their parent transitioned.   And as we know, queer people make WAY less money over the lifetime than straight people, so their queer parents can’t support them in school very much.  

They get cast as allies because they might identify as straight, but they were literally BORN into queer community.  They have lived queer struggles in their own unique way.   I wish their was a word between being queer oneself and being an ally because ally implies that you’re just a ‘helper’ instead of someone who is impacted often daily by anti-queer bias.   

So this may be an unpopular opinion, but if they have done the work to be a student leader, I think allies who are children of queer people deserve scholarship money too.  A lot of those kids of queer parents go on to be lifelong and valuable activists for queer issues and to me that is worth funding.
