Anonymous asked: I just wanted to write, as someone who usually enjoys your blog and the points you make on it, to express my confusion at the comments you sometimes make about straight people. I'm sure they are meant to be tongue in cheek, but if someone made a joke about being queer being "boring" or a phase we should grow out of I certainly wouldn't read it with a LOL… :-/ Maybe I'm just oversensitive to wanting us all to just get along!?
i think that poking fun at the oppressive majority doesn’t actually prevent us all from “getting along” you know? i’m not really afraid of hurting straight people’s feelings by occasionally referring to the heteronorm as boring. i mean, oppressive social expectations that are reinforced in violent ways are a lot worse than boring — they’re kind of fucking disgusting — so boring is really the nicest way i could put it
