How about centaurs as bisexual parallels, though?
Can’t you just picture a centaur like, “What did you just call me? ‘Half human, half horse’? Ex-fucking-scuse me, I am ALL centaur!”
And just, constantly having people define you in terms of things that aren’t you, chopping you into parts because they can’t accept you as a whole, individual thing.
Trying to get the resources you need and constantly feeling out of place for it, because nothing is really intended for you.
"What do you mean you need horse shoes AND shirts?"
"Well sorry that my hooves wear down and that humans get fussy if I go around topless. Also, do they really have to be called HORSE shoes? I wear them and I’m not a horse."
"OMG special snowflake, shut up. Centaur isn’t a legitimate species, just decide if you’re more of a human or a horse."
"PRETTY FUCKING SURE I’M A CENTAUR."
I just have a lot of bisexual feelings about centaurs, sorry not sorry.

fandom: BUT HE TREATED HER SO WELL SHE’S SUCH A BITCH TO HIM HE DIDN’T EVEN RAPE HER WHY WON’T SHE LOVE HIM
So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.
When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup, literally one of the first things he is asked is “did you ask an older boy to put your name in the cup for you?" or something to that effect, insinuating that, that was something nobody prepared for and that it was something that totally would have worked if anyone had been smart enough to figure it out.
However, in an earlier scene a student is turned into a hundred year old man when they try to artificially age themselves with a potion and put their name into the cup. Meaning someone trying to dangerously age themselves with potion they aren’t familiar with was something the teachers genuinely considered to be more likely than someone asking for fucking help from another student.
In other words, the wizards in Harry Potter’s world are so reliant on magic that it doesn’t occur to anyone save for people like Harry that asking for help is even an option in a given situation. This explains why wizards are so fucking ass-backwards at everything, they’re so confident that their magic is capable of doing everything for them that it has never occurred to fucking anyone that perhaps asking for help from the muggle world might be of some use.
Think about it, the wizarding world hasn’t changed in hundreds of years while in that same space of time the muggle world has figured out fucking space travel. I know it’s a cliché to say to say someone could have fucking shot Voldemort, but seriously, somebody totally fucking could have, he killed like 50 people, he was effectively a terrorist, if anyone in the wizarding world bothered to ask for help from the muggles instead of just telling them there was an invisible asshole flying around shooting death curses at everyone, they may have been able to help.
Pretty much the only reason Voldermort thinks he’s better than muggles is because he’s able to kill them with impunity using magic, something he’s only able to do so easily because muggles don’t understand what magic is. Voldemort is basically like a fucking disease, he’s an invisible, lurking entity preying on mankind from the shadows like a cowardly piece of shit. You know what else did that? Smallpox and we stomped that to death the second we understood it. That’s the difference between muggles and wizards, when muggles don’t understand something, they figure it out.
And here’s the kicker, the only reason muggles don’t understand magic at all is because the wizarding world deliberately withholds information about it. However, even if the wizarding world kept doing that, it’d only be a matter of time until a muggle figured out what magic was and how to stop or harness it because that’s what humanity does, it pushes past what we think is impossible to see what’s on the other side. We didn’t understand the sun as a species originally and now we use it to power satellites and smartphones.
The wizarding world isn’t a realm of infinite possibilities, it’s a universe of strict limitations where boundaries are never questioned. The muggle world is where the real magic happens. That’s why during the course of the Harry Potter books, which are set between 1991 and 1998, the muggle world (our world) discovered dark matter, cloned a sheep and invented fucking MP3s while the wizarding world were literally paying some dipshit to figure out what the purpose of a rubber duck was.
Wow, I really shouldn’t think about this stuff when it’s like 3AM, it gets kind of dark.
I HAVE UPSET THE CISHET BOYS
i feel so bad for the fedora
it started out as this great icon of feminism thanks to sarah berndhart and honestly a good hat (a good hat mind you not cheap shlock) does do wonders for making someone look dapper whether it be fedora or trilby (i slightly prefer trilbies)
and now it’s become shorthand for the very most obnoxious slime of society
i am sorry fedora. i am so sorry. humanity has failed you, you poor brave hat
like how much more obvious does this need to be made for people to get it?
this isnt even an exaggeration
like at all

straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
the a in lgbtqa should stand for allies, they deserve the recognition for defeating the axis powers and winning world war 2
in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese
