The thing is when you’re bisexual, you’re not really surprised when a straight person is biphobic. Sure it sucks and you’re like “well fuck you too dude” to whoever the prick is; but it’s not so astonishing.

Biphobic gay people on the other hand, actually hurt like a motherfucker. Like bro you’re supposed to be on my side??? Like even “my people” can’t accept me?? That hurts so much more than some random dude who expects a threesome.

This is a culture war. The right side is winning, at great cost. At great personal costs to people like Anita Sarkeesian, Leigh Alexander, Zoe Quinn and even Jennifer Lawrence, and countless others who are on the frontlines of creating new worlds for women, for girls, for everyone who believes that stories matter and there are too many still untold. We are winning. We are winning because we are more resourceful, more compassionate, more culturally aware. We’re winning because we know what it’s like to fight through adversity, through shame and pain and constant reminders of our own worthlessness, and come up punching. We know we’re winning because the terrified rage of a million mouthbreathing manchild misogynists is thick as nerve gas in the air right now.

Us Social Justice Warriors – this is me, stealing that word in order to use it against my enemies- are winning the culture war by tearing up the rulebook, and there’s nothing the sad, mad little boys who hate women and queers and people of colour can do about it. Nothing, at least, that doesn’t sabotage their strategy, because they can win their game from day to day, but they’re losing the war. They can punish me for writing this, and I’m sure they will, but that will only prove my point. I’m not afraid anymore.

Every time they make an example of one of us, ten more stand up in outrage to hold her up or take her place.

We are stronger, smarter and more numerous than anyone imagined, and we are not to be fucked with.

Excerpt from WHY WE’RE WINNING: SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS AND THE NEW CULTURE WAR by Laurie Penny (via femfreq)

Our Senegal, Gobo, views nearly all foreign objects as THE ENEMY, GET THAT THE F**K AWAY FROM ME NOW, I WILL DESTROY IT PRESENTLY!

I have had this little straw hat for a week, and was finally able to get it on his head for a second before he flipped the hell out and attacked it briefly before flying about, screaming, as is his usual way.

First, it was just in the same space as him. On the table near by, somewhere visible. Then the next day, I held it, for him to see before putting it down safely far away. Then I asked him to touch it with his beak, and rewarded that with a tiny seed. Then, I let him bite it a little, and as a beaky destroyer, he found the crunchyness of the hat tempting. 

Over the next few days, I would slowly bring it towards his head while I was giving him head scratches. He would eye it warily, then flip the hell out and fly away screaming. I figured I’d scarred him for life and turned the hat into another Hated Object.

Tonight, however, after almost a week of trying to coax him into the hat, I came home late and he was pretty tired. Too tired to fight. Too tired to resist. And, it was as if he said “Fine…I’ll tolerate this for now, because I am confused and tired. And I want a head scratch.” Tiny victories over the tiny defeated.

He will get a nice gob of peanut butter in the morning, and the freedom to destroy the hat utterly while I’m away at work.
