PrideSource - Q&A: Panic! Frontman Talks Westboro Protest: ‘It Was Pathetic’ by Chris Azzopardi of PrideSource.com

Highlights include: he doesn’t consider his recent “coming out” to be a “coming out” only because he was always open to admitting that side of himself if anyone would have asked, but no one asked.
Also? He lost his virginity at 13. Huh.
And he first tried to make out with a girl at the age of… six. Yup. The boy was precocious.

Aaah my god. (not happy with the bit about him pretty much sexually harassing band mates but yeah) I love how we all saw him as this big dork but he was having sex with boys and girls from the age of 13. Sort of surprised but also not surprised at all. My teenage obsession with him still makes me weak in the knees when I read articles like this.

Skins was middle class problems like why them kids so sad

Be more concerned about your character than your reputation … because your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think of you. By

John Wooden

Be a genuine and good person and that reputation will follow.

the word ‘bisexuality’ is a taboo

it isn’t said on tv. orange is the new black, for example, features a bisexual protagonist who points out the biphobia at one point in assuming she can’t be attracted to multiple genders, but no one Ever says the word and she is ignored and referred to as a straight girl or a lesbian depending on the situation

other bisexual characters later turn out to have been Really Monosexual All Along. or are attractive, promiscuous women with commitment issues

this isn’t a coincidence.

people who are attracted to multiple genders, when asked about it, often describe themselves as “Fluid”. “I’d rather not label it.” “I don’t need to define it.” “It’s just whatever.” as if people are afraid of even implying the b word

this isn’t a coincidence.

the word ‘bisexual’ gets you different reactions in different places. straight people think you’re either faking for attention or a deviant. straight men are afraid of bi men and think bi women are just particularly promiscuous straight girls who want to have threesomes with them

gay men accuse bi men of being in the closet. lesbians accuse bi women of being straight girls going through a phase. and the ones who don’t do either of these things still often assume bisexuals are promiscuous, indecisive, and can’t settle down.

the theme throughout is that bisexually is illegitimate, deceptive, and always a front for something else.

this isn’t a coincidence

people are constantly encouraged to ‘settle down’, to ‘just pick one’, to ‘not be greedy’. abandon bisexuality. you’re really gay. you’re really straight. you’re too young. how can you know you’re bisexual at 16? 18? 20? 25?

this isn’t a coincidence

the word ‘bisexuality’ is constantly, persistently manipulated, by people who aren’t bisexual at all. the meaning twisted on shallow rationale. accused of being transphobic, or of being exclusionary.

this has been happening for over 20 years now despite the existence of outspoken trans and/or non-binary bisexuals. whatever they can do to make you not say the word. pick a different one.

this isn’t a coincidence

bisexual people - whether implied or literally, deliberately saying they are bisexual using the word - are constantly rewritten as gay or as straight. gay icon. he was never interested in men. bi actor comes out? headlines say ‘came out as gay’, or articles outright ignore it

it’s never, ever a coincidence. bi erasure is a constant, ongoing thing.

Your brain is such a worthless slacker. I’ll prove it.
Relax and stare at this image for a while. After said while (thirty seconds…ish), the colours will begin to disappear (no it’s not a gif). You can even make them go away completely.
What’s happening is called Troxler’s Fading. After a while of receiving the same non-changing information, your brain gets bored and just discards the information because it’s too busy keeping an eye out for more pressing, changing information, like tiger attacks.
You know how when you wear a watch for a while you stop noticing it. Same thing. Your brain is an idiot.
It is pretty though.
