Re: Marriage Equality - long story short.
I am against the marriage equality machine because it is a way for the gay community to “normalize” itself based whatever normal hetero white America thinks is normal at the time. It takes away the spotlight from issues far more important to the gay community such as youth homelessness, increasing HIV infection rates, access to healthcare, etc, all of which disproportionately effect people of color, and allows the white, upper middle class, gay and lesbian community to feel charitable while still creating a chaste system within the larger LGBTQ community.
Yes yes yes. The marriage equality machine. Why are we trying so hard to be or appease straight white people when there are bigger issues at hand? All 50 states can recognize same sex marriage but it won’t mean the struggle is over.Stay woke.

such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.
It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.
I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.
Just a reminder folks.
