Queer Stuff
« on: June 11, 2021, 03:17:49 AM »
This is just a general queer thread. I don't like any trans, queer etc news, good or bad, inevitably ending up in a thread really about a horrific bastard who once wrote comedy, so with admin advice I've decided to make a thread. Please, if you have any thoughts on queer happenings, post it here, and not in that comedy thread. PLEASE.

Anything good, bad, whatever, for us queers. Because I don't want relevant news about gay, lesbian, bi, trans, queer people to be in a thread about a failing bastard. His failed life does not ultimately define us.

Post anything relevant, and keep posting. Good, bad, whatever, so long as it's related to queer happenings.

Obviously, the current topic in recent news is the Maya Forstater tribunal. Which as I said before, "waking up and having the first thing I saw today being the fucking BBC push notification for this just fucking ruined my day. I find myself trying to ignore news about trans rights in the UK because it will inevitably depress me". Maybe this will work as a topic opener, I don't know.

Let's talk about queer stuff here. Not about an obsolete man.

Isn’t there already a thread for this?

If this is a different type of thread then ignore this.

I think that thread is more supportive, whilst this one is more observational.

For example:

"Peter Mandelson was sighted at Donington services (northbound) yesterday evening, buying 34 litres of premium unleaded and a Twix" would go in this thread.

"Huge support to The Right Honourable Baron of Foy and Hartlepool for buying a Twix and breaking down homophobic barriers around the use of English motorway services" would go in the queer/trans comrades thread.

"I fucking hate that man" would go in whatever is the currently pinned Labour Party thread.

I’ll post wherever I want, thanks. I can post in both threads. I’m not queer anyway, it’s a label with way too much baggage. I’m too boring to be queer.

Was reminded of this Bob's Burgers clip earlier, which might not be exactly right for this thread, but I thought it might be a nice, gentle and funny distraction from the negativity: https://youtu.be/2BkdCC7_JZM

Can we talk about Mumsnet in here or is that reserved for the you-know-who thread?

I'd suggest such a discussion is worth its own thread - and possibly referring to it with a pseudonym or by description (but perhaps I'm paranoid).

It's clearly an important phenomenon in all sorts of ways, even if I think the role is plays in British TERF discourse is overplayed by all sides.
