LGBTQIA issues are fundamentally aligned with feminist ones; gender heteronormativity is dead.
The Bisexual Feminist
As a bisexual woman, you would think I would have admitted this sooner. Yes, I do have a few female celebrity crushes and yes, I am in a committed relationship with a man. Do I have any regrets or shame at all? Hell fucking no. I don’t let other people dictate who I am supposed or not supposed to be attracted to and neither should they, homophobic or not. I’ve been putting off telling this story for some time, but as a grown woman with a mind of her own (shocking I know), I feel empowered to speak my personal truth. My coming out was a personally turbulent time, one of which I don’t regret and never will. The only thing I will ever regret doing is making the people I love worry about me.

How many times would it be before Eva could tread down the bus steps without tripping over her own feet? She suspected it wouldn’t be any time soon. The slicked rubber mats had no helpful effect on her incurable clumsiness. Relenting was not characteristic of Seattle rain, notorious for cloaking the city in an inescapable fog blanket. Eva could feel the raindrops running cold trails down her cheeks as she stumbled into the open air. She could only think of the circular timeline she lived life within. There hadn’t been a day in the past five years that felt any different from this one. Each day weighed heavier on her heart, which had started to feel like a solid chunk of lead occupying her chest.
The L Word
I feel sometimes as if i am living my life through a lens. A filter that makes me see things differently to others. I find the most boring things fantastical, and some of the most amazing things, tiresome. I see beauty, reverence and admiration where others do not and where I was raised to not.
Top 20 Questions and Comments that I have heard after telling people I was Asexual.
I loath telling people I am an Asexual or Ace for short because most people do not understand it or ask me really stupid questions or make stupid comments. So in honor of pride month, I have decided to write all the stupid things that people have said to me when I have told them that I am an Ace and my internal responses. My experiences and responses are in no way indicative of all Aces and many of these questions are actually very hurtful and invalidating. So lets begin with my least favorite and the rest are in no particular order.

Lockdown's a Drag
“I need to go lay down in a dark room”, I said to my friend over eggs in March, Fingers rubbing my temples and peeling old eyelash glue off from the night before, a very faint line of makeup around my face from not being washed properly before collapsing into bed, still smelling like sweat and cheap perfume.

The Bi Life: Coming Out as Bisexual
As a young teen I was very shy, that student in the class that would go bright red if her name was called, and the one that always knew what work we needed to do. I was quiet, awkward, and anxious, always had a head full of thoughts, but said barely any of it. That is far from who I am now.
