I can’t fucking stand it when people get angry at you for doing something they have never done and getting on their high horse. Only to turn around and then ask you your opinion on whether they should now do said thing. Like fuck man…. Guilted me like I was scum of the earth and now it’s okay coz you’ve changed your mind and want to try it. Cool
***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.
People think it’s okay to come up and touch me and take my picture without my consent.
Today I had some guy come up and offer me a “free hug”. Does it maybe occur to you I don’t want to be touched by a freaky weirdo guy in public, despite you’re offer being so appealing… Not.
Even an old woman came over to is and they wanted a photo of me and then she grabbed me and lifted up my skirt… If I want to wear a costume to a festival where people dress up I shouldn’t be made into some sort of fucking plaything for people to gawk at, touch, and take photos of without asking.
I seriously don’t understand what goes through peoples heads. I am a person. Not an object. Stop touching me and telling me how sexy I am it’s fucking disrespectful. Also I know I am attractive and you pointing it out to me isn’t a free pass into my pants, like, where the fuck were you raised that you make those leaps in judgement. I’m seriously so over the way society treats women and how I’m constantly made to feel fearful and objectified for just existing around other humans.
