Be Like, Being Weird, and Bitch: theonlylivingboyinnewyork Being in a room with straight people talking about straight things is so exhausting pokemontrainerpav What the hell are 'straight things'? theonlylivingboyinnewyork Marriages and mortgages and families and opposite sex attraction talk and talking about sex openly without being made to feel like you are making people uncomfortable and hearing straight people talk about how hard dating is for them and hearing straight people talk about how they are such victims and their lives are shit when what this really means is they aren't married at age 22 and sexist crap that drives me crazy like traditional weddings and how great religion is and how the world is so lovely and kind and great because people don't know what it's like to be a minority and how straight people are like "this person is so lovely" when you know they are homophobic or listening to straight people say things are "gay" or talk about people who dress unconventionally (ie. men who wear dresses) as being weird or doing impressions of gay people or asking "why don't you have a boyfriend?" judgementally as if it is just that easy or getting annoyed at you when you complain about how hard your life is because it's easy for them cause they are straight and wouldn't know the first thing about it or having to come out to people all the time cause they just assume you're straight and getting weird looks like "tmi" or "you don't look gay" or "I don't care what you do in the bedroom" or having to hear straight people talk about really cute straight couples or really great romantic films or books about straight people or just watching people live super conventional lives and do really sexist old fashioned things just because no one is brave enough to question or think about anything.. and worst of all knowing that if you were to say or talk about anything gay everyone would get uncomfortable and not join in on the conversation and wish you had said nothing... and then people will be like "you hardly said anything", "you're so quiet", "you don't talk much", "are you shy", "you're boring". No bitch I'm gay and I don't relate to nor am I really interested in any of the shit that you have been yelling to my face for the last hour. theonlylivingboyinnewyork I live for the number of straight people that don't understand why this was written in this way It's exhausting reading this right? Well that's what's it's like for us gay people to have to listen to straight people's opinions on things over and over and over straight people things

Gender # Sex Sex is determined by genitalia, while gender is a social construct thatrefers to a person's experience of their identity. Gender identity is how a person thinks of their own gender within themselves. Gender is complex and goes way beyond just"male" and"female." Graygender: ambivalent about their gender identity/expression, butwho Agender: nogender/genderless dentifies atleast partially with a Alia/Aporagender: defines gender as other' or apart from existing genders Androgyne: identi fies as androgynous, gender-wise Bigender: twogenders, canidentif as both, or movebetween the two gender (defined or not) outside of he binary Intergender: in themiddle between the binary genders of female and male, and may beamix of both; intended for intersex people to use Cisgender: gender is same as sex they were assigned atbirth Demigender: feeling a partial, but not a full, connection to a particular Pangender: experiencing a wide variety of genders, may feel that they experience gendersbeyond their ability to describe or beyond thosewhich are currently recognized Polygender:'many genders; experiencemultiple gender identities, either simultaneously or varying between them gender identity (also called: demiboy, demigirl) Genderfluid: moves between genders, their gender isnot something that they or anyone can pin down and define Transgender: self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender Genderflux: Having a gender that varies inintensity or degree over time, related to but distinct from genderfluid Trigender: one shifts between or among the stereotypical behaviors of male, female, and a third gender thesinisstronginthisone: onepieceistruepain: mxcleod: mmikan: Here’s information about sexual/romantic orientations and gender identities that I put together! I..I don’t do graphic design, so this isn’t that great. Also, I’m very sorry if I missed your orientation or identity or got some information wrong. Sources: (1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6) Flags: (1) Top photo: (1) I hope this helps some of you out! Oh god. I never realized!! I’m placiosexual. I’m so glad I found this!!!!! This is really important because I used to identify as ‘questioning/unlabelled’ with my sexuality because I never knew that I could identify as ‘Quoisexual’ (excuse me if the spelling is wrong) instead of spending all that time debating over pan and bi. I now identify as bi (two or more) but this could have really helped me earlier on and I hope it helps others identify themselves if they do wish. I think being able to give myself an official label whilst I wasn’t sure what I was would have been amazing because it’s so reassuring to know that there is a flag and everything.And I didn’t know there were that many genders!!!! I feel so happy now that I am more educated and that this exists to help and educate people!! Yay!

Animals, Cats, and Deer: Fun animal facts I have learned being a zoo cdocent lavendersucculents fuckyeahshezza madlori 1. There are several ways to classify the large cats, one of the more useful ones is into the roaring cats (tigers, lions) and the purring cats (bobcats lynxes). The puma (also known as the mountain lion) is the largest cat that purrs. I've heard it up close, it's amazing. A cheetah's purr sounds like an idling motorcycle engine 2. Kangaroos cannot move their legs independently of each other, they have to move them in sync - when they're on land. When they're swimming, they can move them separately. Hopping is their most efficient way to move - a walking kangaroo is awkward as hell. They swing both legs forward using their tail as a third leg to prop up while their legs swing 3. People often think that flamingoes' knees bend the wrong way. They don't the joint you're seeing in the middle of their leg isn't their knee, it's their ankle. Their knee is up by their body, and it bends the same way ours does 4. Giraffes only sleep 1-2 hours a day 5. Bald eagles' vocalizations are not what you expect. When you see a flying bald eagle in the movies and hear that majestic caw sound? That isn't an eagle, it's been dubbed over with another bird, usually a red-tailed hawk. Bald eagles actually sound...not majestic. Kind of like if a kitten could be a bird 6. Elephants are one of only a handful of animals that can pass the mirror test - in other words, they can recognize their own reflection (and not think t's another animal, as dogs and cats usually do). They tested this by placing a chalk mark on an elephant's forehead and then showing it a mirror. The elephant investigated the mark on its own forehead, indicating it knew that it was looking at itself. The only animals that pass this test are the higher primates, the higher cetaceans (orcas, dolphines), elephants, and weirdly magpies 7. One-fifth of all the known mammal species are bats 8. A kangaroo mother can have three joeys simultaneously at different stages of development: an embryo in her womb (kangaroos can do what's called embryonic diapause which means sort of putting the development on pause until she's ready for it to develop further), a joey in her pouch attached to one nipple, and a joey out of the pouch on the ground who nurses from the other one. The amazing thing? Each of her nipples make different formulations of milk for each joey's different nutritional needs 9. Bonobos, our closest genetic relative (they are more closely related to us than they are to either chimps or gorillas) are almost entirely non- aggressive, matriarchal, and use sex to solve all their problems. They engage in both same and opposite sex interactions, non-penetrative sex (oral, rubbing, manual) and with any age. That's an interesting area to work in, lemme tell you 10. Tortoises have super loud sex. Like, really loud 11. All grizzlies are brown bears, but not all brown bears are grizzlies (grizzlies are a sub-categorization of the brown bear) 12. Reindeer are the only deer species where both males and females grow antlers. The males shed theirs the beginning of December, the females shed theirs in the spring. So all of Santa's reindeer are girls, heh. I love telling little kids that 13. If a rhinoceros knocks off its horn, it grows back faster than you'd expect. One of ours, Rosie, has knocked hers off twice 14. Gorillas get crushes on each other. And on the humans that take care of them. Male gorillas also masturbate. I don't know if the females do, I've never seen it. Sometimes it's like a soap opera up in there 15. Langur monkeys are silvery-gray in color-their babies are bright orange Like Cheeto orange, I do not exaggerate 16. Polar bear fur is not white, it's transparent, like fiber optics. Also, thei skin is black This is all excellent and awesome and am a happier, better person for this knowledge Also, you go badass lady reindeer. Sleigh This was really cool to read actually Tortoises are loud in bed and other fun animal facts
