Shopping for clothes when you have big boobs is normally really annoying esp when you like drapey things or want something that cinches at the waist cause you always get stuff like this

All right Sciles tag, let’s have a talk.

This is one of my favorite places, you know? But the Sciles fandom isn’t perfect. And one of the problems I have with it is this aggravating little trend I have the misfortune of seeing over and over again in fics.The one where, for some reason, Scott is not allowed to be queer.

Stiles is allowed to be queer. Stiles is always the one who’s written as actively attracted to other boys, or who has male exes, and guys who hit on him, etc. But Scott is more often than not explicitly Stiles-sexual, and time and again the fic will go out of its way to add that he’s “”not gay”“, not interested in guys at all, nope, he just wants Stiles. 

Far be it from me to tell you how to interpret queerness, but some things just don’t work like that. It’s sad enough have nothing but radio silence in place of Scott’s sexuality when Stiles’ gets to be loud and clear, but it’s the biphobia that really gets to me.

I mean, of course he’s not gay. Because the real word you’re looking for is bisexual. And that applies to both Scott and Stiles- hell to any character who has canonically been shown to be attracted to a different sex. You don’t have to warp their character by making them gay, you just have to expand on it with a completely legitimate orientation that doesn’t invalidate their canon attraction to girls! Wow, bisexuality is amazing!

It’s different if you’re writing from the character’s POV and you personally believe they’d struggle with internalized biphobia- that’s perfectly fine, and completely realistic for someone going through a queer awakening, but as the writer it’s also your responsibility to call that out in the narrative. By not correcting it, you’re tacitly endorsing the bi-erasure that runs rampant in media, its fandoms, and the LGBTQA community as well.

So enough of this single-target sexuality nonsense. If you don’t want to write about Scott being with anyone else, fine, but don’t make him be the heterosexual poster child in your little slash world with Stiles as his exception to the rule.

Sincerely, a sad bisexual Skittles shipper.

We went to the party, and, as I figured, some of the guests laughed and made comments. One said to me, “Do you think this is funny? There are kids here. You want them to see this?” Another said, “You want him to be gay?”  

And I stayed calm. And I explained to them the best I could that there is no correlation between kids cross-dressing and being gay. And if he is gay, it’s not because of anything I did. It’s because he’s gay. And maybe it’s a stage. And maybe it’s not. But either way, I don’t want him to ever feel like he wasn’t able to express himself because his parents didn’t support him. And some understood. And some, trapped by religion or ignorance, gave us the stank face. 

Plenty of people are supportive. They’ll see my kids — Sydney with her long dirty blonde hair, and Asher with his short dark hair, and say, “I love your daughter’s pixie cut.” When I tell them he’s my son, they smile and say, “I love it.” They also apologize for confusing his gender, but I tell them, “Don’t apologize. He’s in a purple dress with sparkly shoes. How would you know?” I know there are parents who get worked up when you confuse their kids’ gender, but I’m not one of them.

I get home before my wife most nights, so I was taking the kids out to walk our dog. They were dressing up in different outfits, my daughter treating Asher like her doll, as she tried various dresses, shoes, and headbands on him. And then Sydney told me she wanted me to wear a dress, too — “Oh my god, it will be so funny.”

I said, “No,” but she kept begging. I said, “People will laugh at me.” She said, “If they do, I’ll tell them to go away.” And I couldn’t argue with that, as I squeezed myself into Carrie’s most flexible dress. We walked the dog on our block, and the pleasure my kids took in seeing their dad go out of his comfort zone trumped the humiliation I felt.

Carrie pulled up to the house, and I saw her slacked jaw from the end of the street. She laughed. She took a picture. And she told me I better not rip her dress. And then we all went for a pizza.

Can I just say the fact that the little girl’s first reaction was “I’ll tell them to go away” made me tear up?That’s a kid, at such a young age, willing to defend people. That’s a kid who, if her brother wears a dress to school and gets picked on, will run to his side in a minute, regardless of what her friends will say. Oh god the feelings. I can’t handle it.
