that escalated quickly
I was really happy to see Stonewall include bisexuals in their “Our Work Continues” poster which are currently all over the London tube trains.
[Image shows two white police officers, one woman one man, with the text:
ONE IS BISEXUAL. IF THAT BOTHERS PEOPLE, OUR WORK CONTINUES.
At Stonewall we’ve campaigned for 25 years for equality. We’ve had major success with legalizing same-sex marriage, repealing Section 28 and lifting the ban on gay people serving in the forces. But 99% of young gay people still regularly hear homophobic language at school, 100 homophobic hate crimes are reported to the police every week and 2.4 million people have witnessed homophobic bullying at work in the last 5 years.
Lots done. Lots to do.]
I should add that although I think this is a well thought out campaign (including members of the clergy, doctors, police etc. in the photos - these are images that will makes some people uncomfortable, which I support,) Stonewall is currently not a great supporter of trans* rights, and as such while I appreciate their current campaign, I in no way stand with them.
(Stonewall Scotland does slightly better than it’s England & Wales counterpart, but I doubt it’s great.)
Benedict cumberbatch is on a list of influential people and he hasn’t done a god damn thing to influence any fucking human except give fandom bloggers feels
I am 100% certain that whatever individuals decided not to include Laverne Cox in the TIME 100 are actively transphobic when they can see that 91% of 88,000 people thought she should be on that list.
I checked the poll yesterday and she was in the top 7, there is literally no fucking way she could’ve moved down to #101 in that amount of time
leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women
Laverne Cox and Lupita N’yongo literally have inspired so many trans women and black women and have done so much to encourage them and meanwhile they are less influential than an ugly oatmeal reptilian alien and a manchild who wrote a scene where two pretentious terminally ill teenagers make out at the Anne Frank Memorial
she’s turning 30 this year
and then they didnt put her on the final list
