Hate crime.

I can't read through this. I can't stand it. But it is important, so go there, even if you don't read every word.

For randomly found links about Gay Issues and Gay Rights and all that.

Here's one with codes

Here's one with a tiny bit of dialogue
sparklebutch: (queer)
If anyone tells you, in regard to your slashing tendencies, that 'not everyone is gay',
Please to be reminding them that not everyone is straight either.
And for oh, a thousand years or so, the 'realistic' proportion of heteros in fiction of all kinds was
MASSIVELY distorted.
So we're taking back the night, the daytime television, and everything in between.

The small things: Ficathon

See [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest: because all my friends like rare strange things. I heard about it here, on [livejournal.com profile] lucifen; that's a hint for you to go look if you like Brimstone.


The big things: Queer acceptance

From [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt; it's a sad world when gay sex is eviller than het sex.
sparklebutch: (geeks shall inherit)
"Although they have good-looking women, they pay very little attention to them, but are really crazy about having sex with men. They are accustomed to sleep on the ground on animal skins and roll around with male bed-mates on both sides. Heedless of their own dignity, they abandon without qualm the bloom of their bodies to others. And the most incredible thing is that they don’t think this is shameful. But when they proposition someone, they consider it dishonourable if he doesn’t accept the offer!"

My only note: Bloom of their bodies? A new high of badfic hath been found.

Not a single transperson is awake and around at the moment.
And I need someone to talk to.
Or, fuck talk, I need to hang out with someone.

Hans Christian Andersen, a Danny Kaye movie. I'm watching.

He's holding a [naked] doll and says he'd make it a Queen doll, and asks who brought the dress for the queen, and no one has, and he says, then we'll make it a king, all it takes is to tip the crown a little to the side, and there we go. Queer people in the audience choose this moment to hide a chuckle or two.

And then, a little boy says, "it's not a king, it's just a queen with a mustache!"

And Danny Kaye sitting there amidst the group of children says, "you'd be surprised how many kings are really just queens with a mustache."

I believe the phrase I'm looking for is Oh No You Didn't followed closely by Queer Subtext In Hollywood In The 1940s-1950s".

And this is the second time today I'm looking at my TV with wide eyes and saying, "what the hell do non-slashers think this was about?!", first time being when a male teacher is being flirted at by female student at first, and then two minutes later a male student leaves an apple on his desk, smiles shyly and leaves the room.

No, really. What do people think, exactly? Just how blind can the majority be?

You don't have to answer that.

Connor: So, Vampire Slayers. I was told about them. How come you're always girls?
Faith: I don't know. Better at it, I guess.




So, vampire slayers. Always girls. Anyone - those pseudo-canony things or in fic - ever explored the trans angle? I'm asking seriously, not talking crack fic.

Is it a woman thing? If so, can a slayer be a girl with a male body? What would the watchers do? Or is it a body, DNA, chromosome thing, in which case, what happens if a slayer is on testosterone and on his way towards chest surgery? And what happens with intersex people, how does that work re slayerhood? There's been tons of slayers through the ages, no way did this never come up, unless the "only girls" thing is extremely severe and somehow picky. In which case, I still want to know how it works.
