Dear Dan Savage:

We appreciate all of the hard work that you and your sisterhood of the travelling imperialism (aka white gay men who speak over everyone else) have done for ‘the movement,’ but now we need you to keep moving far, far away

back into the closet along with your tacky outfit.
Girls Just Want to Have Paisley!

I think we need a break
It’s not us, it’s totally you

We’re just at two different places right now.

Namely you’re sleeping with Wall Street
and I’m trying to take stock of your hot mess.

And no, it isn’t cute—
just like you not responding to anyone on GRINDR who doesn’t look just like you.

When you said you were a homosexual did that just mean you wanted to fuck yourself?

It would seems like you and your friends are anal about everything,
(except racial and economic justice).

Back when we were gaybies you told us that it would somehow ‘get better,’
And considering that queer youth are 4 more times likely to attempt suicide,
We believed you.

There is something beautiful about being lied to
In the innocence of forgetting,
How trust seduces us when we mistake white men as mirrors

You see, Dan,
It’s so much easier to love yourself when you use the #equality filter
on instagram and come out white!

Like. Share. Colonize.Repeat!

What you forgot to mention is that it only gets better
if it gets
bourgie

Today’s headlines are out! This Just In!
“Gay is the old white!”

Dan okay darling we’re going to take you a tragic school bus all the way back to elementary school

There is this thing called ‘scale’
Not all things are actually the same size.
Some things are more equal than others.
There is a difference between being insecure and being incarcerated
Between being lonely and being placed in solitary confinement
You call it a ‘rainbow;’ we call it a ‘racial wealth divide’
Sorry Dorothy your rainbow brick road was built by colonized and enslaved peoples

Not everyone in this country can afford to be gay,
the rest of us are just trying to pay rent.

We followed you to your favorite club,
I think it was called: “The White House”
Where the men told us to #leanin and be proud that our movement is finally receiving our piece of the cake!

You’re right. These days you can’t tell the difference between a gay party and a cheescake: they’re both rich, white, and bland

Dear Dan:
What about the homeless queer youth?
Oh wait! They were #BornThisWay to be poor,
criminalized, and thrown into jail.
Maybe if they love themselves more the police won’t hate them.

Dear Dan:
What about all of the queers in prison?
Oh shucks! We’ve been passing out all the equal sign stickers in the wrong direction
When we flip them the right (wing) way they make a handy set of prison bars
Gay rights for prison stripes!

Dear Dan:
What about the undocumented queers?
The US deports hundreds of thousands of them
But golly!  We won’t ask if you don’t tell
About all that military money creating wars
that create more migration in the first place
But Uncle Sam didn’t tell you that when he ordained your wedding.

Dear Dan:
What about the trans women of color who started Pride?
Oh darn! They couldn’t afford the cover fee to your party,
Didn’t have a good enough credit score for the Gay Visa Equality Card,
Guess the only change you believe in is the one in your bank account!

Dear Dan:
Masturbation will not dismantle the masters house!
This is not a movement, it’s a marketing scheme.
This is not equality, it’s erasure.

Our bodies should matter even if we’re not in style this season.
Talk is cheap; show us your receipts.

ItGetsBourgie
When there are 200 beds for homeless queer youth in New York City
and your friends are signing leases for new mansions.

ItGetsBourgie
When all of the major national gay rights organization in the US invest billions in private prisons and drone warfare.

ItGetsBourgie
When marriage and not murder is the number one queer issue.

So from this point forward please stop calling what you’re doing ‘a movement’

Try Elmer’s glue instead!
Because y’all have been white and stuck up for a long time

Dear Dan:
If you’re so good at being out,
why don’t you just
leave?

ileolai said: are you ok?

Blah, not terribly ok - I went to a “Welcome Workshop” at the Gender Identity Clinic and it seems like I probably won’t get prescribed hormones for a year, so I’m now weighing up other options. That, mixed up with the media’s reactions to Mayang Prasetyo’s murder is making me feel very fucking wobbly today.

Just filled out my health insurance forms!

yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!

I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.

Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.

No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.

This is so important.

This just in, y’all!  Trans people who don’t want to be erased, or who want to communicate their TRANS SPECIFIC health needs on their insurance forms (because that fucking exists too, all the fuckers above me) are trying to be angsty speshul snowflakes!  It’s not like trans people are constantly given bad or even lethally bad medical care or anything!  We just want to be SPESHUL.  Also, every single trans person who dreads these kinds of forms is obviously a DRAMATIC TEENAGER *SWOON SIGH* who under NO circumstances has already had to deal with being misgendered, mistreated, and abused by the medical community for decades already!
Hahahah Cis people know everything!  THey should totally just keep speaking on trans issues!  Good job cis people!

Maybe cis people could stop being angsty about trans bodies and trans lives for fucking TWO SECONDS and remember that they aren’t actually goddamn doctors. JFC.
