When asking a queer person to define their identity, understand this: queer identities resist definition. On purpose and with force.
~my thesis is the bomb~ (via femmesandfamily)
I need to remember this, about marginalised/”odd” identities in general.
People often will ask you to define them. To describe them in a way that is “acceptable”, that makes sense to them. You can’t always do that, and sometimes, you can spend so much time doing it that you start to doubt, too.
But your identity deserves better.(via swanblood)
