Today is as good a day as any to say this.
Please, kindly, take your “love is love is love” horseshit and ram it deep into whatever orifice would be most unpleasant for you. Please, kindly.
No one is threatening love. Bigots don’t kill queers because we love each other. Our existence, as queers, threatens their oppressive gender system, threatens their privilege, threatens their sense of themselves. And they are more than willing kill us for that.
We don’t need allies to defend our love. No one is killing love. We need allies to defend our right to exist. We need allies who will stand up for queer people who don’t make them comfortable. We need allies who will fight for the nonconforming, the unloved, the unloving, the people who are not glamorous or respectable.
It doesn’t matter if you think love is great. Fucking everyone thinks love is great. It matters if you think queers are great and if you’re willing to stand up for all of us. Otherwise, what the fuck use are you?
