ChaosLife - Homo Hint

With comments too great not to include. You should check the heck out of that webcomic series either way 8D

The comments on this are every bit as fabulous as the actual comic :D


I had Randolf, the radical faerie raccoon. That weekend was a blur of wild excitement.

Randolf, if you’re reading this, call me. Please.

I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.  

Acceptance has no exceptions. Period. 

Nothing to add.

A pivotal moment in the very funny But I’m a Cheerleader starring Natasha Lyonne as Megan, a naive teenager who is sent to rehab camp when her straitlaced parents and friends suspect her of being a lesbian.

I adore Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols, Orange Is The New Black)

In case you didn’t know, Natasha has been entertaining us for years in movies like Everyone Says I Love You, Slums of Beverly Hills,  American Pie, Scary Movie 2, G.B.F. the really funny take on 60s horror Die, Mommie, Die!,

Ok, so I figured that perhaps not everyone is aware that this is available to use now, especially the younger folk out there.

This is OraQuick, and it is an FDA-Approved, in-home HIV test that provides results in about 20 minutes. I’m not sure about the availabilty of this product (or similar ones) in other countries, but in the U.S. you can purchase these at Walgreens for a mere 35 bucks, and you can even have them delivered to your door for complete anonymity.

Reading the results is easy. One line you are negative, two lines you are positive.

Why is this important? Well I know for a fact that a lot of guys say they are HIV negative without really getting tested, or they base that on some really old test result. There is no excuse now. You can get this in the mail if you want, and know for sure in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Its good peace of mind. And if you meet someone new and you are planning on playing around, its an easy and cheap thing to do to know where you guys stand. It builds trust right off the bat. Being safe is not just about wearing a condom. Its a combination of many things like trust, knowing the person, closeness, and being a good judge of character. Now on top of that you can keep up with your HIV status on a regular basis. :)

This is important for people to know, I never knew it existed

This is how my boyfriend and I tested before we started bareback in together after being with each other for 3 months. It’s super easy.

I know that it’s scary, believe me, I don’t practice risky behaviors and my anxiety was through the roof. It’s so important though you guys.

They even give you a non-descript bag to dispose of everything in.

I’m glad this is going around. :) Spread the word.

It’s also important to note that this is an oral swab test, so there’s no need to fear if you’re scared of needles! Know your status. Stay safe. 

Reblogging because every single person who has ever had sex or is planning to have sex needs to be aware of their sexual health.

It is really important for people to know their HIV status, not just those in the LGBT community.

"I AM DIVINE" (trailer)

The 2013 documentary explores the life and fame of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from humble beginnings as an overweight, teased Baltimore youth to internationally recognized drag icon.

Divine was one of a kind, the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty with a completely unapologetic, in-your-face style. He spit in the face of the status quo of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine blurred the line between performer and personality. He and John Waters revolutionized pop culture.

I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon’s emotional complexities and rise to infamy.

AND… it’s available on Netflix streaming. :)

Cishets take note. 
This is victim blaming and not how you should ever speak to my community. 
This sort of speech puts the blame for LGBTQIAP+phobia on our community for simply being out. 
A basic translation is: 
We will only treat you as human if you pretend to be straight. 
If you don’t think our community has tried everything to stop the hatred and abuse against us then you need to think harder. 
The reason we still face this unacceptable bigotry is not because we refuse to be ashamed of our identities, it’s because of bigots like the tweeter above. 
Cis straight people have the privilege of being able to ‘flaunt’ their identities (aka live their lives without fear of hatred and harm on the basis of that identity) every single day. 
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment cis straight people fear holding the hand of their significant other in public.
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment cis straight people are denied the right to marry. 
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment I stop hearing about friends and members of my community being made homeless by their bigoted cis heterosexual parents. 
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment I stop hearing about members of my community being bullied, beaten, and even killed, for simply being who they are.
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment cis straight people stop calling my sexuality a ‘disease’ I need to be cured of. 
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment cis straight people, as a collective, can get their shit together and learn to treat me and my community like human beings. 
Cis straight people made my sexuality relevant the moment they started denying me rights and discriminating against me and my community on the basis of it. 

"I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment I stop hearing about members of my community being bullied, beaten, and even killed, for simply being who they are.”
I’ll stop making my sexuality relevant the moment I stop hearing about Trans Women of Color being targeted for hate and murdered in the streets.

Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

I never understood why it’s so difficult for people to treat others with the respect that they insist for themselves.

What do you care that Robert is now Roberta and wishes to be addressed in a feminine pronoun? How does that negatively affect you? What. The. Hell. Difference. To. Your. Life. Does. It. Make?
