someone sent this to me so i put it into that classic tumblr poetry layout cause I thought it deserved to be shared
im actually so scared for this but I think some people think worse of me anyways
Love comes to us in hidden messages and secrets, but we figure them out in time
one of my all time favourite photos
so don’t even tell me i matter, because i don’t.
oh how wrong you all are.
every word we utter and every action we make has an impact on everyone on this earth.
something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.
everything is connected and everything matters. there’s not an atom in our bodies that has not been forged in the furnace of the sun.
and… we are all related. every single one of us has ascended from the same human beings.
we are family. we are one with the sun. we are one with the moon. we are one with the sea. we are one with the earth. we are one with nature.
^reblogging for that comment
At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
Go trigger warn some shit
That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community.
Mother. Fucking. This.
People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire.
Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works.
He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten.
He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.”
So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about.
I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.
This is why I love the Colbert Show.
Yeah, drawing attention to bi and trans erasure through satire is not in itself biphobic or transphobic.
Come on guys. Satire.
“My first tattoo on my right arm. It’s a paper airplane and it’s the symbol of the travel of life. You start somewhere and don’t know where you end up and so on. It’s that simple and that’s something I love about life. Life is beautiful! I’m in love.”
You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid, you say that you love me too. - William Shakespeare
You never know the full story.
