Anonymous asked: I took it quite a while ago so I might be misremembering, but weren't a lot of the implicit bias test's negative words connected to suffering rather than being bad? I remember taking it and being like, oh really, I associate pain with being queer, wow, wonder why, haha, that doesn't show a preference for straight people though...
Yeah I think you’re definitely right, thanks
janefondle asked: I hear what you're saying, but by the same token, do you agree that people shouldn't refer to children as "straight" either?
I do—I would also have a problem if people were responding to “Anne Frank was bisexual” with “Anne Frank was straight.”
Instead of, you know: “Anne Frank died in the holocaust when she was a child and so we don’t have enough context to impute a sexual label on to her after her death.”
TW: Antisemitism, Holocaust
I wasn’t going to say anything about the posts that have been circulating around the internet saying that Anne Frank was bisexual but they still keep showing up. So:
We have no idea whether or not Anne Frank was bisexual. Anne Frank died in a concentration camp when she was a child. We don’t know how she identified. We don’t know how she would have grown up to identify. We don’t know how she would have grown up to conceptualize her childhood attraction to women—whether it was fleeting, whether it was important, whether it was part of her self-concept.
As an adult, I can say that I was a bisexual child. But it would be INFURIATING for someone to read my childhood diary and make that determination for me. It is INFURIATING that people are posthumously assigning a sexual identity to a murdered child. The entitlement to exercising control over Anne Frank’s narrative is INFURIATING.
"How do women have sex with two vagi—"
Go accidentally hit your girlfriend’s clit with a “female condom” you abject cissexist homophobic piece of shit
It takes them 20 minutes to have sex, max
EXCERPT: “gay guys, I get, becuz you’re putting a dick in a place. But two vaginas? That’s just wrong—not morally, but geometrically.”
