The idea that God will punish the nation for allowing same-sex… Clap, clap, clap… Exactly

SHIT I CAN'T MAKE UP: Convo between my 7year-old...
(Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh
Matt: Me too! On a boy!
Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
(pause for a bit)
Matt: Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
My students are the shit.

Anonymous asked: Im a girl, I am bisexual, and both of my parents are major homophobes. My girlfriend is very important to me, and I love her very much. I want to tell my parents what's going on, but I'm afraid they'll lash out at me or worse disown me. They're very strict when it comes to these kind of things.

Anonymous asked: My cousin who is 4 years younger than me, is lesbian and wants to come out of the closet, and I want to help her, as an older cousin and a fellow lesbian. But her parents, my aunt and uncle are extremely Homophobic, and I know they'll freak out. So I want to help her and make it easier on her than my experience was, but I don't know how. Any ideas?

Anonymous asked: (same anon still- if it's not anon don't post please) Yeah, I haven't been taken seriously before, & most of the psychologists around here are homophobic & religious, I'm scared to try to go to one & have something end up happening (even if I could afford it).

Anonymous asked: Can you post some recent statistics of gay suicides? I was thinking of doing my research paper about it but I wouldn't even know where to start. The whole issue is so overwhelming and tragic in many ways
Anonymous asked: (same anon about the statistics) Well to me, it sounds like they're saying trans people are more important than LGB people and people should care about helping them more. This hurts as a severely depressed and suicidal lesbian :(
Anonymous asked: The suicide rate of LGB people of all ages is close to that of trans people. They're two separate age groups (teens and all ages), they shouldn't be compared.
Anonymous asked: I don't know the source, but I'm pretty sure the LGB teen suicide rate is higher than than 20%. If you have some people who can do research, it's findable. I'll be doing my best to find the statistics. By the way, Check Dat Privelege has been saying that LGB people aren't as important as T people, and their problems aren't as severe, etc., several hateful things.
