How this will work will be just reblog or comment or message me with your deity’s name and I will make a list and once it dies down then I can put it into a poll thingy and show everyone. :3
If you worship many just list them as you please.

Why is corrective rape always thrown in as if bisexual women have never had this occur to them
Corrective rape is a pretty fucking serious issue so attempting to disregard bi womens experiences is a down right crappy thing to do. And all because you think that bisexuals are using “biphobia” as a…
I talk about this a lot, and if you think lesbians, like myself talk about this just to shut bisexual persons up you can talk several fucking seats and never tag anything Lesbophobia ever again.
I was talking about multiple situations where its used in an attempt to try and shut bisexuals up. I never said anything about the general discussion, I literally stated that I’m not talking about people who only want to talk about lesbians.
Using the corrective rape of lesbians in an attempt to shut up bisexual women talking about our experiences is a shitty thing to do. Talking about corrective rape regarding lesbians isn’t.
It says a lot that people think that asking people to recognise corrective rape happens to bi women too and is the same thing as telling lesbians to not talk about the corrective rape of lesbians. We actually have trouble convincing most people, including biphobic lesbians, that this is a thing that happens to bi women at all, and this erasure is used to silence bi women and yes, the word lesbophobia is used to justify this fuckery.
so I saw this post earlier about Moorish people in Europe and, like, dressmaker’s receipts? couldn’t find it but anyway, the receipts would have something like “Sarah (More)” or “Rebecca le Moor” or whatever
and it made me think that usually we think of the surnames Moore or More as derived from the land feature, you know, shortened down from “of/near the moors,” and that’s definitely a thing that happened
but then I thought well, how many white people of European ancestry with those names actually have a black great-great-etc-grandparent somewhere whose appellation survived and was changed from “the Moor” to just “Moore”?
idk if this really means anything except that we tend to erase the presence of black people in Europe even though there was that whole thing with Spain (among other things), and the surnames Moore or More might be an indicator of black European presence in some cases
Interesting! I’ve wondered the same thing before about the commonality of Black (or Lenoir, Schwartz, Chernov) as a surname across many European cultures.
Duh, how did I not think of that? It’s only blindingly obvious.
I mean, it’s also possible that black could refer to someone’s hair or whatever, and for historical figures sometimes it means they were real bad guys, but I think people assume that that’s always what it means when that’s not necessarily the case. Sort of like how in European literature when someone is described as “brown” or even “black” modern readers assume that means “tan with dark hair.”
As someone whose oh-so-Irish last name translates in part to “son of the black one,” these musings are relevant to my ancestry.
"homophobes are only interested in making other people homophobic" says stephen fry, the piece of shit who did a whole bit on why transgender women are disgusting.
So the next time you reblog that photoset, just remember that Stephen Fry is talking about himself and is too up his own ass to even realize it.
