Religion student. 21. Ohio. She/her pronouns.
What you'll find here: Jesus stuff. My continuing obsession with the Mennonite/Anabaptist church. Antiracism. LGBTQ rights. Game of Thrones. Feminism. Politics. Humor. And whatever else strikes me.
I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.
Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
“AS LONG AS YOU DON’T USE A WEIRD LABEL”
I have seen far too many people on tumblr start to whine that eight labels for sexuality is going “too far”, when a lot of those people know over 81 times that when it comes to Pokemon, and I’m pretty sure sexuality labels are more important that virtual monsters.
Sexuality and gender identity labels aren’t “frivolous”. And the vast majority of people that use them aren’t trying to be “special”, they’re merely trying to find a word that validates and explains their orientation - something that most people have and take for granted.
tl;dr: This person is amazing and I love their graphics so much it hurts.
So I really appreciate these. Tolerance ≠ acceptance ≠ equality ≠ celebration of diversity.
Little girls dress up like princess and dream to married a beautiful prince who lives in a big white castle. She dressed up like a franciscan sister and dreamed to married The King of kings. Sr. Patricia Edward enetred the Daughters of St. Paul ten days after her graduation.
I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

According to the rule books, same-sex marriage is mostly unacceptable in the U.S. But that’s not the case when looking at the opinions of the American people. According to anew set of maps from Esri, same-sex marriage is popular in large swaths of the country.
The maps break support for same-sex marriage down by county. Green and yellow dots represent counties where people support same-sex marriage, while orange and red dots represent places where people do not. As you can see, there’s no consensus across the country.
We tend to think this often, but it’s pertinent as ever — recalling the tenor of the 2004 presidential election on marriage rights, the distance public opinion has moved in just eight years is staggering.
