Anonymous said: im so glad i found someone else who agrees. ive always found the term "pansexual" to be very pretentious and i think it came from biphobia tbh. but whenever you say that genderists attack you :/ i dont understand why someone would need to identify as pan when its just bi??
because people feel the need to
- uphold gender and
- be considered special because being bisexual isn’t special enough
i don’t necessarily believe in biphobia (i think biphobia is an extension of homophobia), but yeah, all it is is bisexuality since no matter what “gender” you “identify” as, you’re attracted to someone via sex organs and secondary sex characteristics. if you’re attracted to both, congrats, youre bisexual. there’s like, nothing to do with gender identity in that but people just want to be special, and make an entirely new sexuality that has nothing to do with sex organs in the first place.

"The connection between patriarchy and capitalism is not a question of what came first and what came later. It is the exploitation and oppression of women by men which is the fundamental base for both systems. Today I would not talk of two systems but rather as one capitalist-patriarchal system. I also do not use the model of “Man the Hunter” any more to express how these two systems are related. I rather think that capitalism is the latest avatar of patriarchy. Therefore one cannot separate the struggle against patriarchy from the struggle against capitalism."

"why be straight and cis when u can be queer and tr-"
hi lets not treat lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends
Yeah and let’s not act like being lbgtq+ is better than being cis and/or straight, please. Neither is better or worse than the other, stop putting value in sexual preference/orientation.
