oh hey, we passed 2k followers again.
we hit that milestone once, but then immediately lost like 50 followers for reblogging this.
welcome to the blog, friends.
Anonymous asked: As a queer trans* follower, I wanted to thank you for managing to explain all the things I've wanted to to shitty allies but have never been able to find the right words to. You're doing a wonderful job!
Thank you for the compliment, anon! I’m glad we’re being helpful.

lyeriaaurion asked: Quick question about the photo in the last post because it has me confused: If allies are not allowed to be part of, or participate in, the community at all, or come to any of our events because they are safe spaces or even be in the same room as a group of us because it has a Safe Space sticker on it, how can there be a designation of whether an ally is good or shitty?
Allies invited by a person to come to a specific event are very different from “allies” who go “oh that’s a queer group on campus, but I’m an ally so I’m gonna go there too”, or who assume that because they were invited to Large Event X they’re totally invited to Small Event Y (or, worse, Dating Event Z, which I’ve heard of people running into straight people at and really).
I realize I used generalities. This is because if I said “most allies who blah blah blah” 99% of shitty allies would go “oh, I must be fine”. And really, it’s more that there’s the occasional exception to these rules.
You can usually tell whether an ally is good or shitty by how they take being told they’ve overstepped a line. If they argue, they’re generally a shitty ally. (And again — there are very few exceptions to this generality. Pretty much the only one I can think of is “I was invited by [specific person] who’s right over there”, but there might be others idk. “But I’m an ally” should be met with them being immediately ejected.)
