Two students, James and John were given a grammar test by their teacher. The question was, “is it better to use “had” or “had had” in this example sentence?”
The teacher collected the tests, and looked over their answers.
James, while John had had “had”, had had “had had.” “Had had” had had a better effect on the teacher.
welcome to the english language
god your sexual orientation and gender doesn’t have to be an inherent biologically justified inborn thing for it to be valid, and if you think it does you are appealing to the very systems that attack queer and trans people in the first place
having a movement that is only saying “i’m gay and i’m so sorry i can’t change it because it’s inherent” is accepting that queerness is less valid that heterosexuality
this is the problem with liberalism. a biological/scientific explanation isn’t necessary for you to be valid, it’s just an appeal to your oppressors. the only people this really helps are the ones that are thisclose to accessing their own privilege (ie. white cisgays).
it’s better to have a movement that says “you do not have to conform to the heteropatriarchal standards of society, and if you choose not to your choice is a valid and good one”. that is a radical idea, one that ties into dismantling other systems of oppression that compound on the most vulnerable members of the queer community
my aesthetic is the kid on the playground who tells all the other kids that ring around the rosie is about the black plague
I did this literally every time
