NOPE. 

Republicans talking shit AGAIN. This @GOP tweet is the literal opposite of what they believe, campaign, and how they vote.

They know that no matter how outrageously they lie, their base will still believe them.

I reblogged this a couple weeks ago, but I’m reblogging it again because after sending that tweet out on September 1st, Republicans blocked equal pay (yet again) just two weeks later.

“People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.”

*sighs* I have this fear that I’m somehow going to inadvertently set off some sort of epic identity comment war. I really do hate labels. Like, seriously. Those who know me have heard me rail. Bottom line? Just love who you love, people, and don’t piss on anyone else’s love parade. (These are the metaphors that come out after 2am, I guess. WTF.)

The whole debate seems incredibly pointless all of a sudden. (Though I’m still interested in answers.)

Just love who you love. Who gives a fuck if people don’t know what box they can cram you in?

finalowen asks:

Jack doesn't give a damn about binaries because bisexuals don't have to give a damn about binaries. Anyone who says we have to is lying. Also, RTD on Jack's creation: ”I thought: ‘It’s time you introduce bisexuals properly into mainstream television," on his appeal: "a bisexual space pirate swaggering in with guns and attitude and cheek and humour into primetime family viewing - that was enormously attractive to me". On Torchwood: “this is going to be a very bisexual programme”. Just sayin'.

After a bit of debate I’ve chosen to answer this publicly instead of privately because not only do I appreciate that you actually gave me quotes and sources to back up your position on this (especially since the original poster still hasn’t gotten back to me with anything of the sort) but also because I felt it was important to acknowledge some of what’s been about the character from the one of the creators himself. That said, I still feel that the way he was WRITTEN and the end result of how it played onscreen really points a lot more to omnisexual (or pansexual) than bisexual. (I can explain why I personally still feel this way but a.) this’ll get much longer than it already is and b.) I’m already kicking myself for letting myself get sucked into a Tumblr debate.) I also have to wonder how much RTD knows about the pan or omni labels versus the bisexual/homosexual/heterosexual labels and their intertwined relationship in the eye of mainstream society. (Because let’s face it: When MOST people hear “pansexual” they probably think we’re getting it on with kitchenware. XD )

That said, I offer a sincere and respectful thank you for replying to my request for something that backs up your beliefs.

Your message raised some more questions for me, however. Before I go into them though, I want to point out how frustrating this whole conversation is for me. Why? Because I freaking HATE labels. Labels are for soup cans, not people, and trying to fit a complex human being into a nice, neat little label is problematic to say the least, not to mention stifling. But here I am, apparently arguing on behalf of a label. You can see why this is personally frustrating. So let me say this: I consider the matter I’m breaching here to be one of semantics rather than “OMG WHAT ARE YOU?? WHICH BOX DO YOU FIT IN??”. Because it’s not up to me which box you’re in. (If you’re in a box at all. XD Who needs boxes either?) That’s an entirely personal matter and I respect the right to define your identity for yourself.

However, I’ll admit that your message caused me some degree of confusion, mainly because the very word “bisexual”, when etymologically examined, refers specifically to the concept of two (as the root “bi”=”two” or “both”, to my admittedly passing knowledge of Latin). Okay, I’ve been reading up on articles about why the criticisms of bisexual identification reinforcing a false binary are incorrect. I’ve also been talking to friends, one of whom identifies (identified? It’s complicated.) as bisexual and we’ve had some really enlightening discussions about the wonderful complexities that make up human sexuality and identification. In the end, it’s your call as to what you identify with and no one else’s. But I’ll admit that I don’t entirely get why one who doesn’t acknowledge a gender/sex/other various binary would identify themselves by a term that specifically makes a binary division. I’m not saying “OMG wrong!”. I’m just saying “I don’t get it. Explain why?” Is there a reason why you don’t identify as pan or omni or… anything else, for that matter? Hell, I still wonder why most people choose any label — see above rant. ;P

If you’re still reading this, kudos. You’ve made it to the end of one of my long and rambling messages. It’s 2am right now and I’ve almost forgotten why I thought it was a good idea to engage in a hot-button Tumblr debate (if one can call this such a thing), let alone what my initial point was. Hopefully I didn’t word-fail in any of this; if I sound like an ass, rest assured that it’s unintentional.

Again, thanks for actually supporting your argument instead of repeating yourself like the OP. As I mentioned earlier, I far prefer reasoned and respectful discussion to condescension and blind insistence without stated reasons.
