ug this rubs me so wrong.

if this was just the text, id be into it. 

but as it is… 

you do not need to look like this to be queer

you do not need to look like this to be queer

you do not need to look like this to be queer

there is no queer look

so can we please stop acting like having piercings or fancy hairdos or studs on yr jackets or ripped up clothing or tattoos have anything at all to do with queerness?

commentary^^^

But seriously though. The commentary. Yes. 

This bothers me. I’ve always had a hard time fitting into queer scenes for not being viewed as ‘queer enough’, and it’s always been a source of anxiety/self-deprecation. I’m really not into the idea of working my way past queer gate-keepers. How many queer people do I need to have sex with before I’m allowed to pass?

Yeah I feel this big time. Cara expresses it better than I ever could, but yeah, fuck this. Huge source of anxiety for me, especially in mtl.

not to mention theyre all white or lightskint.

ok, only you belong. cool. great. the antithesis of radical. 

all that I bolded were my initial thoughts on seeing the photo and honestly if it weren’t for the commentary, I wouldn’t reblog this photo for those very reasons.

they all wack too.

Wait wait y’all, someone decided to take the text off the original post, which was commentary on all of the above mentioned issues. Which is an example of why it’s fucked to take someone else’s work and intentionally remove it from its context.

Originally the drawing was posted with this text:

to join, you must be this queer:

  •     must be dfab
  •     must be non-binary
  •     must be white
  •     must have at least two of the following: stretched ears, facial piercings, tattoo of a cat
  •     must do everything yourself
  •     must say “yr”
  •     must shave part of your hair and/or dye part of your hair (diy optional but preferred)
  •     must spell it “punx”
  •     must have spikes on all yr clothes
  •     must be as intimidating as possible
  •     must be as cliquey as possible and only associate w/ other elite queer punx like yrself
  •     must i.d. as hard femme
  •     must collect patches on all yr clothes
  •     must own a sizeable collection of dildos
  •     must be interested in d/s or other kinks of some kind
  •     must wear vintage combat boots
  •     must be uninclusive to people who are not queer punx like you

Which is some good & important commentary! And people shouldn’t be cowards and try to remove some commentary like that.
