|Kid:||What does gay mean?|
|Me:||Gay is a word for people who are like uncle H.|
|Kid:||So like.... people who get bad haircuts on purpose.|
|Me:||No, that's because your uncle went to art school and is profoundly contrary, it means a guys who only love other guys the way I love your dad, usually, sometimes it means gals who only love other gals the way I love your dad too, but most people call them lesbians. People call gals who just love guys the way I love your dad, and guys who just love gals the way I love your dad, straight or hetero, because hetero means different and straight people love people of a different gender. Some people also call gay people homos which means 'same' because they love people of the same gender, but that's rude, so don't do that. The way I love your dad is called romantic love, it's different from the way I love my friends or you, or my mom and dad. Some people can romantically love all sorts of genders, and they can be called pansexual, or bisexual. Some people also call themselves queer which usually means there isn't really exactly a good word for the combination of genders they can love romantically, but queer can also be seen as a rude word, so you shouldn't call people queer unless they say it's okay. Your dad is straight-ish, and there isn't really a good word for me, because I don't care if someone is a guy or a gal or another gender, I just like people who are pretty and wear makeup and skirts sometimes, and sometimes I'm a guy, and sometimes I'm gal, and sometimes I'm something else, but don't worry too much about that because you can just keep calling me mommy because it's easier and frankly we don't need the hassle of explaining the complexities of my gender to everyone. For people who aren't guys or gals the terminology gets a little confusing, you'd think if they loved other people of the same gender romantically be gay, and if they romantically loved other genders they'd be straight, but that's not quite how people use the words, because a lot of people see not being a guy or a gal being different from being straight in and of itself and there are basically an infinite number of possible genders so just... you know, go with it, and some people don't feel romantic love for anyone and they're called aromantic, there are also asexuals, but I'll explain those to you when you're a little older. Before you were born, gals weren't allowed marry gals, and guys weren't allowed marry guys, and people who the government thought were the same gender couldn't get married either even if they weren't the same gender.|
|Me:||Mostly because some people are assholes, and because of a 2,000ish year old book that kinda sorta says so, maybe... depending on how you translate Aramaic, but mostly the some people are assholes thing.|
|Kid:||Oh. What am I?|
|Me:||Fuck if I know, kid, you're like 4, you can tell me when you know.|
There is absolutely zero class consciousness on Tumblr. It’s really upsetting in a lot of ways.

queer authors: make all your characters queer. every single one of them. leave no room for alternate cishet interpretations....
