Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”
"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.
After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.
She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family. You should read this Rolling Stones piece on Queer kids getting kicked out by their religious parents. And remember it. (via fuckyeahdiomedes)
i hate pants that make it look like i have a boner when i sit but then i remember im a girl but i still worry that somebody will think i have a boner
Do… Girls really worry about this?
reminder that there are girls who do get boners because some girls do have penises.
when the media gives you shitty lgbtq “representation”, don’t be satisfied
make the media taKE THE “REPRESENTATION” BACK
I DON’T WANT YOUR DAMN QUEERBAITING, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THIS?!
DEMAND TO SEE THE MEDIA’S MANAGER. MAKE THE MEDIA RUE THE DAY IT THOUGHT IT COULD CONVINCE AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY THAT DUMBLEDORE WAS ADEQUATE REPRESENTATION
